Revising the memorized portions of the Qur'an

Q 2: What is your advise in order for us to remember what we have unfortunately forgotten of the Qur'an due to preoccupation with worldly affairs? Is the reward of listening to the Qur'an on a cassette player equal to the reward of reciting it oneself?

A: First: One of the most important methods that helps in memorizing the Qur'an is frequent revision of the memorized portions of the Qur'an, studying them, paying attention to them, invoking Allah (Glorified be He) to help one do this, doing good deeds, and abandoning sin.Second: Listening to the Qur'an, whether from someone reciting it or from recorded tapes, (Part No. 3; Page No. 106) brings the person a great reward, but reciting it oneself is greater in reward.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
