1: Always practice with a pure heart and sincere intention that you are undertaking the hifdh journey for the sake of Allah alone. There is no other objective or reward sought apart from Allah's ultimate reward.
2: Do not start your hifdh journey just because your parents or friends have done so. You are your own person. Do it because YOU wish to do so!
3: Being mentally focused is essential. Clear your mind of any doubts and negative thoughts. Having a clean mind will help you to engage in a productive hifdh journey.
4: Seeking advice from reliable family members and friends before undertaking the hifdh journey is very helpful. Ask them to highlight your strengths and weaknesses.
5: A good way to prepare for your hifdh journey is to extensively read and research the history and facts of the Qur'an. Get to know more about the Quran and develop your knowledge further.
6: An effective preparation technique is to maintain a consistent daily recitation of the Qur'an. This will increase your familiarity with the words of the Qur'an.
7: You are never too young or too old to start preparing for your hifdh journey. Allah blesses each person differently with regards their memory. Age is nothing but a number!
8: Always check and renew your intention during your hifdh journey. Did you undertake this journey for fame or status? If it was not for Allah then will the Qur'an intercede for or against you on the Day of Reckoning?
9: Prepare yourself spiritually prior to starting your hifdh journey. Try to become closer to Allah than before. Grow and develop your spiritual state.
10: Preparing yourself physically is essential. Assess your current diet and eating routine. Eating foods known to improve memory will help you in the long term.
