We should resort to Allah in all matters, one of these matters is facilitating good memorizing of the Holy Quran, coming closer to Allah, and avoiding doing sins.

Memorizing the Holy Quran as well as reflecting upon the meaning of the Holy verses is a necessary and a needed matter for every Muslim as Allah Almighty has sent down it upon His servants to learn and to reflect upon it through reciting its verses.

Muslim can’t memorize the Holy Quran easily only through understanding the meaning of it, and reflecting upon the verses of Allah, glorified is He.

Ibn Abdul-Ber mentioned in his book (Jama’ Bayan Al-elm) that the first rank and degree in seeking knowledge is to memorize and to understand the Holy Quran.

Al- Tabary reported that Ibn- Masoud said 🙁 When a man of us learned ten verses, he can’t exceed them until knowing their meaning and applying them).

That is how the Holy Quran is explained to be memorized easily, especially that people vary in understanding and explaining it, so when the Muslim couldn’t explain the verses himself, he should depend on a trusted teacher to explain the Holy Quran to facilitate memorizing it.

One of the answered prayers to memorize the Holy Quran is what the Prophet, peace be upon him, said (( The prayer of the man of the fish, he pray when he was in the stomach of the fish: There is no deity except you, exalted are you. Indeed I have been of the wrong doers as Allah responds to the Muslim who says this supplication)).
