Ok y’all, today I have a challenge for you!
I have been wanted to memorize the first page of Surah al-Baqarah for ages now, but it seems like things keep getting in my way (mostly laziness!).
So today I am making myself a concrete goal: the first page of Baqarah, memorized completely by the end of the week. Seven days.
My challenge to you: pick a short surah or 4-5 ayat that speak to you and memorize them by the end of this week. I would love to hear from in the comments with which surah you have chosen, and any tips and tricks you use for memorization. Don’t forget to check in again and the end of the week and report on your progress!
If you are not a Muslim, you can still participate! Find a translated copy of the Qur’an, and read the very first chapter, al-Fatihah. It is only one page, and shouldn’t take you too long! If you want to read more, head to the end of the book for more short surahs, the ones in the beginning are usually pretty long and very dense with information so those may not be the best for someone new to the book. Once you have done some reading around, leave me a comment and let me know what you thought about it, how it made you feel, and if it changed any ideas you previously held about the Qur’an
Can’t wait to hear from you all, God willing!
