All praise and thanks are due to Allāh (SWT), who blessed us with the Glorious Qur’ān. Abundant salutations be upon our beloved teacher and role model, the first haafidh, Nabi Muhammad (SAW).
The concept of ‘Mentorship’
Hifdh Mentoring is about motivating and encouraging the hifdh student to consistently achieve their hifdhul Qur’an aims and goals.
Every mentoring session is unique, as it is structured around the requirements of the individual hifdh student.
A mentor will:
- help her mentee to stay on track and reach her goals
- offer encouragement
- discuss possible solutions to difficulties
- share her experience and knowledge
Some benefits for mentees:
- raised achievements and aspirations
- improved self-confidence and self-esteem
- increased motivation
I’m excited to be formalising my hifdh mentorship program, in-sha-Allah. Despite being very informally mentored, I feel that I wouldn’t have completed if it wasn’t for my mentor, by Allah’s Permission and Decree, of course. I’d like to offer others the opportunity that I had; to pay it forward and make a difference in the lives of hifdh students across the world bi-ith-nillah. Alhamdulillah, I have the background, capability and personality (I hope) to fulfil this role in-sha-Allah, especially after doing Sh. Dr. Yahya Al-Ghawthany’s “How to memorise the Qur’an in 56 Days” course.
This is one of the responses from one of my blog-followers all the way in Bangladesh:
“Your suggestions were extremely extremely helpful, way more than I expected. Jazakallahu khairan. I made a routine of my own with some slight changes to the one you gave and I’ve been following it for just over 1 week. It’s going great alhamdulillah. Just taking a bit of time but in sha Allah I’ll cope with the new pattern soon. Now I can understand where I went wrong in my revision method… I had been starting from the longest surah and going one by one till I reached the strong memorizations.. So it took really long, and by the time I reached the end I forgot the weaker memorizations. So it was like a cycle. Alhamdulillah after reading your mail I started revising multiple parts simultaneously. This is much better. Barakallahu feeki ukhti! :)”
So what are you waiting for? Book your first session now!
I welcome your questions and look forward to your feedback. May Allah place Barakah in all of our endeavours and keep us sincere and steadfast. Aameen.
With best wishes for your hifdh success,
Cape Town Haafidha
