Ramadan is the month of Quran. Many start the month off with lofty Quran reading and memorization goals, and many hit what they intended DURING Ramadan.
Maintaining consistency after Ramadan, however, is an entirely different story.
The Shaytans are out and about, daily routines start obstructing us once again. And the Quran, "respectfully"
returns to our shelves. Sure we feel guilty, but guilt is not the greatest of motivators.
You need tried and proven routes to capture your post-Ramadan Quran reading and memorization and review goals.
Here is my favorite:
Re-memorize Quran you have trouble remembering, and recite it every Salah chance you get for the entire day.
Step 1: Lets say you have 1 Juz' memorized (equivalent of about 20 pages).
Step 2: Take 1/2 a page of those 20 pages and RE-memorize it today.
Step 3: Recite that 1 page in your prayers all day long.
There are certain Surahs that you know like the back of your hand, like Surat AlFatiha, Qul Huwal Allahu Ahad, for instance. Why do you know them so well? Cause you read them, like, ALL THE TIME in Salah.
If you use this technique I'm talking about here, these new Quran pages can become just as strong, in sha Allah.
With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level!
