I Memorised The Quran with A Supplication

I Memorised The Qur’an With A Supplication

This is likely to be the shortest post (yet full of value) I’ll ever write.

In our previous post we talked about the supplication that the beloved Prophet (ﷺ) had advised.

It got me thinking about what other supplications or methods people may have used for aiding memorisation.

Then I remembered something.

Can You Help Me Memorise The Qur’an?

Someone once asked the Syrian teacher and scholar, Shaykh Samir al-Nass for some help with memorising the Qur’an. He told him to read the following supplication three times before and after reading the Qur’an. He also said that he is convinced that is why he has been able to memorise the Qur’an.

اللّهُمَّ نَوِّرْ بِكِتَابِكَ أَبْصَارِنَا وَأَطْلِقْ بِهِ أَلْسِنَتَنَا وَاشْرَحْ بِهِ صُدُوْرَنَا وَاسِتَعْمِلْ بِهِ أَجْسَادنَا

بِحَوْلِكَ وَقُوَّتِكَ فَإِنَّهُ لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ

Allahumma nawwir bi kitabika absarana, wa atliq bi hi alsinatana, wa shrah bi hi sudurana, wa st’amil bi hi ajsadana, bi hawlika wa quwwatika, fa innahu la hawla wa la quwwata illa bika ya arhama rahimin

O Allah, illuminate our sights by Your book, loosen our tongues by it, expand our chests by it and use our bodies in it, through Your movement and power for there is no movement and power except with You, O most merciful of those who show mercy.

This supplication is beautiful. Give it a go and let me know how it goes. I like to say too that I memorised with a supplication too.

What do you think?
