Memorization is repetition. Human being needs memory for recording. Memory is necessary for any kind of mental activity and men’s ability to maintain and retrieve information is called memory. We can say: “Man’s real need of implanting the Quran in his memory. Mornings are the best time for learning and memorization: if these times are as close as possible to the time of the morning prayers or before dawn, It will be more effective on the mind’s process. More importantly, this prayer of the Prophet will not affect the hafiz when the prophet says to Allah “Oh, Lord! Yes, they are my people who kept the holy Quran obsolete.”

The best position is .to sit towards the Qibla (direction of the holy Ka’aba, in Mecca): Imam Sadiq (P.B.U.H.) says about The Prophet of Islam (P.B.U.H.): most of the time the prophet set towards the qibla he also said, The recitor of the Quran needs three things: a heart that is humble and attentive, a body and soul that are disengaged and undisturbed, and a place that is calm and not crowded and to be ritually pure by performing the ritual ablution. Allah speaks several times about pondering over and understanding the Divine verse in the holy Quran. One of these verse is verse 29 of sura Sad: “(This is ) a scripture that We have revealed unto thee, full of blessing, that they may ponder its revelations, and that men of understanding may reflect.” Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) says:” Be aware that there is no benefit in reading the Quran if you do not ponder over its verses and do not understand them.” Purification is much emphasized and that the great scholars of the past were always in a state of ritual ablution and having the intention to please Allah.

 “…And whosoever is careful of his duty to Allah, He will make for him an outlet.”(65:2) And no path or outlet is better than that of the people of the House, people who are highly honored by Allah.
