- 071. Surah Nuh (Noah) – Youtube Video with English Subtitles -
Recitation by Sheikh Sa`ad Said Al-Ghamdi.
Translation by Al-Hilali & Muhammad Muhsin Khan.
Shaikh Abdul-Aziz ibn Muhammad ibn Dawud said, “I was going with his eminence, may Allaah have mercy on him, from the Imaam Turki ibn Abdullaah mosque to his house when he asked me about reading the Quraan. I told him I read it from time to time but that I did not have a set portion that I read daily. So he said that I should take up an amount to read from the Quraan daily even if it was only a little, explaining that the person who has a set portion which he reads daily from the Quraan will finish it, but he who does not may finish reading it quickly one time but then months may pass and he will not have finished it, and he mentioned the example of a person who reads a juzz a day finishing it in a month and he who reaads two finishing it in fifteen days.”

The Easiest Way to Memorize the Noble Qur’an – salafyink.com
By: Shaikh ‘Abdul Muhsin Bin Muhammad Al Qaasim an Imaam and Khateeb in
the Masjid of Prophet (sallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam).
“Similarly, utilize this method for every page of the Qur’an, however do not exceed eight verses in a day (or one page) so that the portion memorized will not increasewhich may result in a weakening of the memorization of said portion…”
By: Shaikh Muhammad Bin Saalih Al ‘Uthaimeen (may Allah have mercy upon him)
“the way in which an individual will memorize the Qur’an is by being consistent (upon memorizing it).
People (generally) have two ways of going about memorizing (the Qur’an).
- The First: is to memorize verse by verse, or two or three verses at a time, depending on the length of the verses.
- The Second: is to memorize page by page
… Furthermore, it is incumbent whether, (one memorizes) by the first or second method, that they do not proceed (to the next verse or page) until they have excellently memorized (that verse or page that they are currently on)…”

this is great naseeha (advise) and clarification on some matters of the salaah pertaining to women specifically. may Allaah increase our women in such qualities, aameen. here are the words of shaykh al-albaani (rahimahullaah):
“As for, is it correct for the woman to raise her voice with aameen, then there is a detailed explanation with regard to the question. If she is praying with women, then yes. As for if she is praying with men (and) they are strange men (i.e., non-mahram), then no. Because the voice of a woman, I do not say that it is ‘awrah (something private that should be covered) as many say, because the mothers of the believers and the wives of the first Companions used to speak with men and used to communicate with men, and oftentimes the woman used to come to the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam), and she would ask him (a question) in front of the men, and he (‘alayhi ssalaat wa ssalaam) would answer her question.
But [here], it is not from the good manners of the woman that she raises her voice with the recitation of the Qur’aan. We are often asked – is it permissible for the woman, when she is learning the recitation from a shaykh (who is) a reciter (of the Qur’aan), to repeat to him the recitation in order to [know] how he corrects (it) – no, the answer is no. Although she learns, her learning is restricted to listening only, as learned the women of all the companions from the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) by listening to his recitation during prayer or outside of prayer.
If the woman prays with women while she is an imaam, she raises her voice and the women behind her also raise their voices. That is due to (the Prophet’s) saying, (‘alayhi ssalaat wa ssalaam): ‘Women are nothing but the twin halves of men,’ i.e., every ruling that came in which the men are being addressed, then the women are also included in this address, except what is made an exception. For example, and I ask for (your) attention, it is more excellent for a woman, in other than the taraaweeh prayer, to pray in her house; but on the other hand, it is obligatory upon the man to pray the five prayers in the masjid with the congregation. So here, the woman is different from the man. But the fundamental principle is as (the Prophet) said, (‘alayhi ssalaam): ‘Women are nothing but the twin halves of men.’
So if the woman leads women in prayer as an imaam, she does just as the man does as an imaam. Firstly, she raises her voice with the recitation (of the Qur’aan), and she raises her voice with aameen, and (the women) also raise their voices from behind her with aameen. Secondly, not only does the woman lead women in prayer as an imaam, but she (also) gives the adhaan and the iqaamah. Why? Because of the previous hadeeth: ‘Women are nothing but the twin halves of men.’ Furthermore, asayyida ‘Aaisha, the mother of the believers, and the leader of the mothers of the believers in terms of fiqh (understanding of the religion), knowledge and da’wah, may Allaah bless her and her father, used to give the adhaan and the iqaamah when she led women in prayer as an imaam.
And here there is an admonition which there is no question about – the woman here differs as well from the man, as she does not step up before the row of the women, but rather she stands in the middle as if she is one (of the women) from the row. She does not step up before them [to lead as the man does]; there has come a text regarding this also. Therefore, in this circumstance, the woman is not included in the generality of (the Prophet’s) saying, (‘alayhi ssalaam): ‘Women are nothing but the twin halves of men.’”
