Traveler With the Quran : Sincerity


A fellow homeschooler and dear friend sent this email in which she says that she watches these video series with her 6 year old son and that they are great motivators for being istiqaamah (consistent) on his hifdh journey. I started watching these, and it is indeed true; these are great motivators indeed! So much so that I decided to dedicate posts on them by writing down the tips and reflections mentioned in the series alongside the video, as some people may not have the time to watch, so at least they could benefit from it in written form inshaaAllah. I have shared these videos with people I know, but I doubt they are watching them. However, I personally feel that these videos are such motivators especially with regards to the Book of Allah, that I am moved to do this. So Bismillah…

In this episode, Sheikh Fahd visits Egypt where he meets with Ahmed, who is mentally challenged, and subhanallah, you can see how Allah chooses people to showcase His Izzah (might), Qudrah(Strength), and Rahmah(mercy). Brother Ahmed is able to pinpoint the ayah number, the page number, whether it’s makki or madani, and even the hizb. Sheikh Fahd also visits another haafidh, Sharif Sayed Mustafa, a 12 year old prodigy, who after memorizing 4 ajzaa in a period of about 4 years, finished memorizing the rest of the Quran in a surprising period of 3 months, at age 7+. After completing his hifdh in Quran, he went on to study tajweed and the minor and major Qiraat, and also memorized Bukhari, Muslim and other Hadeeth books, mashaaAllah.
