Its been a long time since I set this goal. Alhamdulillah I have learnt to read arabic much better now and I have been going to tajweed classes for the past 2 years now. I have begun learning in a class so the hifz is taking some time. especially as I have a 2 year old daughter now. I think she will over take me soon, inshAllah. It takes me such a long time but I have found the trick is definitely to push urself harder and harder until it sticks in ur mind.
I think if I can remember the lyrics from 100s of songs (from before I was Muslim) then how come I feel I can’t memorise Quraan. It has so much more meaning and so much more value. Inshallah I will get there. EVen if Im 60 when I complete it I am determined.
REmember me in ur duaas please everyone :)
