Listen above for the answer from the Noble Shaykh, Saleh al Fawzaan

Text Answer:

The questioner says: “Every time I want to memorise the Qur’an, it’s memorisation has become difficult upon me. So is my heart considered to have turned away from the recitation of the Qur’an?

“No, I don’t think, if Allaah wills, it has turned away. However you are negligent. the soul loves laziness and it loves idleness. However if you accustom it, it will get used to this and take pleasure from (the Qur’an). At first it will be averse, however if you accustom it, it will take pleasure from (the Qur’an).

And due to this some of the Salaf said: “I endured standing by night for 30 years, and (then) took pleasure in it for 20 years.”

So when his soul was tamed and became accustomed (it took pleasure).

So there is no doubt the soul is averse to obedience, verily the soul commands with evil, except whom your Lord has mercy upon. And due to that the souls are three categories:

  1. One that commands evil
  2. The self reproaching soul that rebukes the person
  3. The tranquil soul, that takes pleasure in obedience, is fond of it and yearns for it.

However don’t lose hope my brother… have strong resolve to memorise the Qur’an – even if you become tired at the beginning. After that you will take pleasure in it by the Permission of Allaah.

Share and Enjoy !
