Memorizing Quran without knowing Arabic or without understanding, is possible and many people are doing it.
Before we begin, we need to understand that, this understanding Quran can help you memorizing it but it is not prerequisite for that. When you know Arabic or Quranic Arabic it helps you to remember context and meanings, with sometimes you guess what is going to be in an ayah or you can also correct your mistake if you have a better understanding the Holy Quran but again it is not something that you can’t memorize Quran without it.
Prerequisite for Quran Memorization
For memorizing the holy Quran all you need to have is you should be able to read the Holy Quran correctly in Arabic text, if you can read Quran with transliteration but not the actual text then it won’t work with memorization because you will end with lots of mistakes and won’t be able to recite it like a professional Qari/Shaykh.
Remember benefits of memorizing the holy Quran and the reason why we memorize Quran is so that we can find out what Allah SWT has commanded us and this is not possible with only memorizing the holy Quran you also need to learn translation and tafsir / Interpretation of Holy Quran.
How do I learn both?
Don’t worry the holy Quran is not something that is very hard to understand and also Allah SWT has said: “Indeed We have made the Qur’an easy for seeking advice. So, is there one to heed to the advice? “
Well, there you are when you try to understand it and memorize Quran, Allah SWT makes it easy helps you to achieve your goal.
