September 12, 2016, 03:17:09 am N. Truth Seeker: Wa salam sisters. So kind of u to remember. Alhumdulilah that Allah gave us another chance to live thru the blessed month of Zil Hajj.  Was a busy time for all of my family.
September 11, 2016, 08:26:43 am Zeynab: Wa'salaam my dear Sis Heba Smiley  Yes, Alhumdulilah, the 10 days of this blessed month went well by the Grace & Mercy of Allah. I wish the same for all.

June 11, 2016, 06:32:29 am Ruhi_Rose: I came across a pinterest page on the Quran which says "The Quran is the central religious text of Islam."  Let me put it this way: Quran is the ONLYText of Islam. If u r following the Quran, u don't need anything else.

 BismEm





While you are reading the Glorious Quran, you will come across verse after verse which you will find exhilarating, and they will ring a bell in your mind and heart so loud that you will want to bookmark those verses for memorization and implementation in your practical life.  The more you read, more often you will keep coming across many incredibly lovely verses helping you to find solutions to problems of life and teaching you the norms of right conduct and of course most importantly, teaching you how to strengthen your faith in Allah, the Almighty.
 
By now I have marked thousands of verses (English translations) in my copy of the Quran.  Out of those I have further picked a set of verses for memorization.
 
Let me make something clear.  Needless to say, it's best to memorize the Quranic verses in Arabic.  But since many Muslims do not know Arabic and many also cannot read Arabic, therefore do not hesitate to memorize the verses of the Quranic translations in the language you can read and follow.  Among those Muslims who don't know Arabic, most would opt for the English translations.  But you need to carefully choose a very good and reliable translator whose Quranic translations are well accepted for their accuracy.  My suggestion would be to choose the English translations of Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall or Abdel Haleem as first choices.   
 
Therefore, if you do not know Arabic at all, please do not make that an excuse for not memorizing the translations of Quranic verses.   Select and memorize the Quranic verses you find most important from the English translations.  The more verses you select for memorization, the better!  This will be like a summary of the Glorious Quran in your mind forever.  Apart from the huge blessings from Allah Almighty for your effort, it's most useful in practical life.  If at any time you need to consult the Quran when you don't have a copy of the Quran available with you, you can simply refer to the already memorized verses for immediate reference. 

If you're memorizing original Arabic verses of the Quran and Arabic is not your first language, then make sure you also memorize its translation so that you understand the Arabic verses you memorize.
 
The set of verses which I have memorized so far are as follows.  Please read them carefully.  If Allah wills, you might like to memorize them too, and add other verses of your choice too, InshAllah. 



1)  My Lord! I am needy of whatever good Thou sendest down for me.    28:24
 
2) Satan was ever man's deserter in the hour of need.   25:29
 
3)  And whosoever striveth, striveth only for himself, for lo! Allah is altogether Independent of (His) creatures.    29:6
 
4)  And cry not unto any other god along with Allah. There is no God save Him. Everything will perish save His countenance. His is the command, and unto Him ye will be brought back.    28:88
 
5)  And if a whisper from the devil reach thee (O Muhammad) then seek refuge in Allah. Lo! He is the Hearer, the Knower.  41:36
 
6)  We verily created man and We know what his soul whispereth to him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein.   50:16
 
7) Everyone that is thereon will pass away;  There remaineth but the Countenance of thy Lord of Might and Glory.  55:26-27
 
8) That which ye have wasteth away, and that which Allah hath remaineth.  16:96
 
9)  .. and know that Allah cometh in between the man and his own heart, and that He it is unto Whom ye will be gathered.  8:24
 
10) Say: O My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgiveth all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.  39:53
 
11) No soul knoweth what is kept hid for them of joy, as a reward for what they used to do.       32:17
 
12) No soul knoweth what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul knoweth in what land it will die. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.      31:34
 
13)  So have patience (O Muhammad)! Allah's promise is the very truth, and let not those who have no certainty make thee impatient.  30:60
 
14)  Wouldst thou (Muhammad) compel men until they are believers?   10:99
 
15)  There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.   2:256
 
16)  Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved. Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden as thou didst lay on those before us! Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear! Pardon us, absolve us and have mercy on us, Thou, our Protector, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk.   2:286
 
17)  Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who believe (to be) the Jews and the idolaters. And thou wilt find the nearest of them in affection to those who believe (to be) those who say: Lo! We are Christians. That is because there are among them priests and monks, and because they are not proud.  5:82
 
18)  O Children of Adam! We have revealed unto you raiment to conceal your shame, and splendid vesture, but the raiment of restraint from evil, that is best. This is of the revelations of Allah, that they may remember.   7:26
 
19)  And those who deny Our revelations - step by step We lead them on from whence they know not.   I give them rein (for) lo! My scheme is strong.   7:182-183
 
20)  And guard yourselves against a chastisement which cannot fall exclusively on those of you who are wrong-doers, and know that Allah is severe in punishment.   8:25
 
21)  Lo! those for whom the word of thy Lord (concerning sinners) hath effect will not believe,  Though every token come unto them, till they see the painful doom.   10:96-97
 
22)  And Allah createth you, then causeth you to die, and among you is he who is brought back to the most abject stage of life, so that he knoweth nothing after (having had) knowledge. Lo! Allah is Knower, Powerful.   16:70
 
23)  Creator of the heavens and the earth! Thou art my Protecting Friend in the world and the Hereafter. Make me to die submissive (unto Thee), and join me to the righteous.   12:101
 
24)  And say: My Lord! Cause me to come in with a firm incoming and to go out with a firm outgoing. And give me from Thy presence a sustaining Power.  17:80
 
25)  Lo! man is verily a wrong-doer, an ingrate.   14:34
 
26)  He is the fount of fear. He is the fount of Mercy.  74:56
 
27)  Man is made of haste. I shall show you My portents, but ask Me not to hasten.    21:37
 
28)  Lo! this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your Lord, so worship Me.  And they have broken their religion (into fragments) among them, (yet) all are returning unto Us.  Then whoso doeth some good works and is a believer, there will be no rejection of his effort. Lo! We record (it) for him.   21:92-94
 
29)  Lo! those who believe, and those who are Jews, and Sabaeans, and Christians - Whosoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right - there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.  5:69
 
30)  Lo! Allah changeth not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts;   13:11
 
31)  We raise by grades (of mercy) whom We will, and over every lord of knowledge there is one more knowing.   12:76
 
32)  Say (unto them): If ye possessed the treasures of the mercy of my Lord, ye would surely hold them back for fear of spending, for man was ever grudging.   17:100
 
33)  And We have enjoined upon man concerning his parents - His mother beareth him in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years - Give thanks unto Me and unto thy parents. Unto Me is the journeying.    31:14
 
34)  Ah, woe unto worshippers  Who are heedless of their prayer;  Who would be seen (at worship)   Yet refuse small kindnesses!   107:4-7
 
35)  A kind word with forgiveness is better than almsgiving followed by injury. Allah is Absolute, Clement.  2:263
 
36)  Muhammad is but a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) have passed away before him. Will it be that, when he dieth or is slain, ye will turn back on your heels ? He who turneth back on his heels doth no hurt to Allah, and Allah will reward the thankful.   3:144
 
37)  See, how they invent lies about Allah! That of itself is flagrant sin.  4:50
 
38)  Those who ruin their souls will not believe.   6:12
 
39)  He whom Allah scorneth, there is none to give him honour. Lo! Allah doeth what He will.  22:18
 
40)  but lo! a Day with Allah is as a thousand years of what ye reckon.   22:47
 
41)  Lo! worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of Allah is more important. And Allah knoweth what ye do.   29:45
 
42)  He who groweth (in goodness), groweth only for himself, (he cannot by his merit redeem others). Unto Allah is the journeying.     35:18
 
43)  And in whatsoever ye differ, the verdict therein belongeth to Allah. Such is my Lord, in Whom I put my trust, and unto Whom I turn.  42:10
 
44)  Seek help in patience and prayer; and truly it is hard save for the humble-minded,   2:45
 
45)  Wait they for naught else than that Allah should come unto them in the shadows of the clouds with the angels ? Then the case would be already judged. All cases go back to Allah (for judgment).   2:210
 
46)  And walk not in the earth exultant. Lo! thou canst not rend the earth, nor canst thou stretch to the height of the hills.   17:37
 
47)  And if they deny thee, say: Unto me my work, and unto you your work. Ye are innocent of what I do, and I am innocent of what ye do.   10:41
 
48) The disbeliever was ever a partisan against his Lord.  25:55

49) Whoso taketh Satan for a comrade, a bad comrade hath he. 4:38
 
50)  And he whose sight is dim to the remembrance of the Beneficent, We assign unto him a devil who becometh his comrade;  43:36
 
51)  O ye who believe! Endure, outdo all others in endurance, be ready, and observe your duty to Allah, in order that ye may succeed.  3:200
 
52) Proofs have come unto you from your Lord, so whoso seeth, it is for his own good, and whoso is blind is blind to his own hurt. And I am not a keeper over you.    6:104

53)  There is not an animal in the earth, nor a flying creature flying on two wings, but they are peoples like unto you. We have neglected nothing in the Book (of Our decrees). Then unto their Lord they will be gathered.  6:38
 
54)  Vision comprehendeth Him not, but He comprehendeth (all) vision. He is the Subtile, the Aware.    6:103
 
55)  Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind; but most of mankind know not. 40:57
 
56)  And though thou try much, most men will not believe.   12:103

57)  Fain would they put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light however much the disbelievers are averse.   61:8
 
58)  Allah would make the burden light for you, for man was created weak.  4:28
 
59)  Say: Each one doth according to his rule of conduct, and thy Lord is Best Aware of him whose way is right.  17:84
 
60)  And on the day when the Hour riseth the guilty will vow that they did tarry but an hour - thus were they ever deceived.    30:55
 
61) Those who believe and obscure not their belief by wrongdoing, theirs is safety; and they are rightly guided.   6:82
 
62)  Our Lord! Cause not our hearts to stray after Thou hast guided us, and bestow upon us mercy from Thy Presence. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Bestower.   3:8
 
63)  Those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah without any warrant that hath come unto them, it is greatly hateful in the sight of Allah and in the sight of those who believe. Thus doth Allah print on every arrogant, disdainful heart.  40:35
 
64)  Verily Allah's abhorrence is more terrible than your abhorrence one of another, when ye were called unto the faith but did refuse.  40:10
 
65)  Bethink you: If it is from Allah and ye reject it - Who is further astray than one who is at open feud (with Allah) ? 41:52

66) Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.   3:31

67)  Say: Lo! Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth unto Himself all who turn (unto Him), Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!   13:27-28

68)  And verily We have displayed for mankind in this Qur'an all manner of similitudes, but man is more than anything contentious.   18:54
 
69)  Say (unto mankind): Cry unto Allah, or cry unto the Beneficent, unto whichsoever ye cry (it is the same). His are the most beautiful names.   17:110
 
70)  And if all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea, with seven more seas to help it, (were ink), the words of Allah could not be exhausted. Lo! Allah is Mighty, Wise.     31:27 
 
71)  So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting Friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!   22:78
 
72)  The word from a Merciful Lord (for them) is: Peace!  36:58

 
73)  Lo! adversity afflicteth me, and Thou art Most Merciful of all who show mercy.   21:83
 
74)  My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones,   23:97
 
75)  This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam.  5:3
 
76)  Allah is with the steadfast.   2:153
 
77)  Lo! we are Allah's and lo! unto Him we are returning.   2:156
 
78)  Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents and believers on the day when the account is cast.  14:41
 
79)  Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.  24:35
 
80)  say: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.   23:118
 
81)  Our Lord! Avert from us the doom of hell; lo! the doom thereof is anguish;  Lo! it is wretched as abode and station;  25:65-66

82)  My Lord! then set me not among the wrongdoing folk.   23:94

83)  My Lord! I am needy of whatever good thou sendest down for me.  28:24

84)  And say: Truth hath come and falsehood hath vanished away. Lo! falsehood is ever bound to vanish.   17:81

85)  But lo! with hardship goeth ease, Lo! with hardship goeth ease;  94:5-6

86)  and say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.   20:114
 
87)  There is no God save Thee. Be Thou Glorified! Lo! I have been a wrong-doer.   21:87
 
88)  Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave ? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.  2:255 (Ayat-al-Kursi)   2:255



Note:  Of course, everyone can make their own selection of verses for memorization as they read the Glorious Quran.
 
May Allah Almighty bless those who have memorized the entire Quran in Arabic by understanding it.  Praise be to Allah, The Exalted. 

We are so fortunate to have the Glorious Quran in the midst of us - a symbol of such unprecedented beauty - please benefit from it and start reading it and memorizing it today.

Salaams sis.  First of all, I've made a correction here.  On final revision I found the total number of verses I've memorized in English translation are 83 and not 77 as previously listed.   And I've now arranged those 83 memorized verses in the order I've memorized them during my reading of the Glorious Quran (English translations). 

Yes sister Heba, I've learned all 83 English translations by heart.  Out of these 83 English translations, I know the original Arabic of 14 verses.  I recite these 14 as Zikr in Arabic everyday.  The 83 English translated verses I recite once a week or once in 10 days in lieu of my reading of the Quran which I do everyday.

@ Sis Rose .. sure sis.  The following are the verses I know in Arabic as well and I recite them as zikr in Arabic everyday.  You might already know the Arabic of some of these verses by memory.  Arabic recitations (by keeping in mind the meanings) are very helpful. 


(1)  My Lord! I am needy of whatever good Thou sendest down for me.    28:24

(2)  Our Lord! Cause not our hearts to stray after Thou hast guided us, and bestow upon us mercy from Thy Presence. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Bestower.   3:8

(3)  The word from a Merciful Lord (for them) is: Peace!  36:58

(4)  Lo! adversity afflicteth me, and Thou art Most Merciful of all who show mercy.   21:83

(5)  My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones,   23:97

(6)  This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam.  5:3

(7)  Allah is with the steadfast.   2:153

(8)  Lo! we are Allah's and lo! unto Him we are returning.   2:156

(9)  Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents and believers on the day when the account is cast.  14:41

(10)  Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.  24:35

(11)  say: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.   23:118

(12)  Our Lord! Avert from us the doom of hell; lo! the doom thereof is anguish;  Lo! it is wretched as abode and station;  25:65-66

(13)  There is no God save Thee. Be Thou Glorified! Lo! I have been a wrong-doer.   21:87

(14)  Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave ? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will.

MashAllah, this sounds grand.  You've given me a great idea.  Now I also want to do the same.  May Allah enable us to study as much of the Quran as possible.  It's so very important.

Exactly sis, spot on.  No doubt knowledge of Arabic language is a plus for a reader of the Noble Quran because the original Quran is in Arabic.  However, lack of knowledge of Arabic does not hinder our understanding of the Quran at all, as long as we are sincerely interested to follow it with a humble heart.  In all such cases, Allah Himself gives knowledge to those who reach out to Him, regardless of language.  This is my own personal experience.  Alhumdulilah.  After all, the Noble Quran is a Book of Guidance calling us from darkness unto Light.  It's not a test of language.  On the Day of Judgement our fate will be decided depending on the strength of our Faith and the righteousness of our conduct, not on how well we spoke or understood Arabic.  Unfortunately many folks don't realise this aspect, resulting in incorrect priorities.

Aoa sister heba correct i too don't get this concept of language superiority. Allah does not say any where in quran one must memorize in arabic.Allah does not want us to memorize Quran or Record it in our brain Only ! without understandings it a true guidance for believers .And one he/she Can only understand it better in the language they are prefect in that's why Allah revealed quran in arabic by the language of that time they spoke .Allah revelled quran in their language they may understand it better. But Allah says He guide whom he will and he know them who seek (his) Allah's guidance regardless language Allah does NOT say he would guide ONLY ARABIC Speakings or those who familiar to Arabic .

A guide and a reminder for men of understanding. 40:54

And lo! it is a guidance and a mercy for believers 27:77

Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of peace. He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree, and guideth them unto a straight path.5:16

Lo! thou (O Muhammad) guidest not whom thou lovest, but Allah guideth whom He will. And He is Best Aware of those who walk aright.28:56

Salaam dear sisters.  Allah Almighty, The All-Powerful and All-Knowing knows the future.  When He revealed the Noble Quran He knew that the non-Arabic speakers would have no problem following it as long as they harbored a sincere heart.  Today the Noble Quran is translated in more than 300 languages with multiple translations of each language.  No one can say that they don't have access to the Quran because they don't understand Arabic.  Also, Allah took the responsibility of protecting the Quran from being changed and corrupted by human hands as they did to His former Scriptures.   Therefore, on the Day of Judgment no one will have an excuse for not knowing the Message of Allah and its principles.   We simply need to reach out to the Quran, read and follow it.  Unfortunately majority don't, and the Noble Quran will be a witness against them on the Day of Judgment. 

Learning the Quran by memory should definitely be done with its understanding.   However, one of the many benefits of learning the original Quran by memory is that its one of the methods that helps to protect the Quran from being changed by humans.  But Allah forbid, even if there comes a time when no one remembers the Quran by memory, Allah will still protect His Great Book forever because that's His promise in the Quran where He mentions that the Quran is in a "guarded tablet."




Lo! thou (O Muhammad) guidest not whom thou lovest, but Allah guideth whom He will. And He is Best Aware of those who walk aright.28:56

I always remember this verse when I'm talking to people and trying to explain to them the importance of Allah's guidance.  Some people understand so easily.  But some don't.  I know several people in my circle of relatives & friends who seem good people, yet there's a big gap between our friendship because they are secular minded who hardly speak of Allah and I don't feel compatible nor comfortable in their company.  I have tried so much to make them understand and now I've given up.  I think of this Verse 28:56, and I say to myself that when Allah Almighty didn't grant power to the Prophet (sw) to guide whoever he wishes, then how can we guide those whom Allah does not consider worthy of His guidance.  It's very true that Allah guides whom He wills because only He knows best who is worthy of His guidance.

I pray that those people who are now in darkness wake up before it's too late and make themselves worthy of His guidance. 

Thanks sisters Muslima and Heba for your very bright inputs.  Allah bless, ameen.

 salamem

and  wsalam U are most welcome dear sister zeynab  Smiley u took right decisions don't waste ur time with those who don't want to understand !! complete answer direct from Quran. I always keep it in my mind Smiley



And they say: We believe in Allah and the messenger, and we obey; then after that a faction of them turn away. Such are not believers.24:47

 

Lo! We have revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture for mankind with truth. Then whosoever goeth right it is for his soul, and whosoever strayeth, strayeth only to its hurt. And thou art not a warder over them.39:41

 

And when thou seest those who meddle with Our revelations, withdraw from them until they meddle with another topic. And if the devil cause thee to forget, sit not, after the remembrance, with the congregation of wrong-doers.6:68

 

And whomsoever it is Allah's will to guide, He expandeth his bosom unto the Surrender, and whomsoever it is His Will to send astray, He maketh his bosom close and narrow as if he were engaged in sheer ascent. Thus Allah layeth ignominy upon those who believe not.6:125

 

Verily We have sent down revelations and explained them. Allah guideth whom He will unto a straight path.24:46
