Reality Check *ouch*

So I decided to memorize the whole Qur'an by next Ramadan which is about 255 days away and I came out with the enthusiasm of Rambo and with as much sensitivity. After talking to my Qur'an teacher I was told that there IS a method to the madness and that memorizing by verses is not a good idea. *blush*

I was given a set of books on Tajweed rules (part 1,2 and 3) a Juz Amma for the classroom junior level book and I already own several Qur'ans (one in SPANISH! with Arabic alongside it). SO instead of starting to memorize tomorrow I will be studying tajweed rules and revising the surahs I already know.

My teacher appreciates my enthusiasm but reeled me in gently. Oh yeah, who is this awesome teacher you may ask? hubs.

My husband is my teacher too. Only when i get things wrong i cop and attitude and then he gets frustrated, so we don't get very far.

[well, this is only sometimes, a lot of the times we are fine hehe]
