Organized Daily Memorization Portion

Assigning a daily memorization portion that is not too much, or too little for the person memorizing is better than an intermittent memorization schedule.

Maintain a set number of verses, quarter page, half page, or fixed number of lines that you will memorize daily. Memorizing a few lines per day and being consistent with it is better than planning to memorize a page a day, but not fulfilling it, making the memorization intermittent. A’isha (may Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“The most beloved acts to Allah are those which are done continuously, even if they are little,” (Agreed upon).

Consistency in memorization, by maintaining a small daily fixed portion, is more important than memorizing a lot in broken chunks. Consistency helps in the continuation and ease of memorization. It also helps to eliminate boredom and maintain the desire to continue the memorization until completion bi ithniLLAH.
