In the name of Allaah, most Gracious, most Merciful.
A few years ago, I decided to leave school with the intention of completing my hifth in a year or two and then going back to school to finish. But Allaah had other plans for me.
It took me four years of ups and downs and sweat and tears to complete. My Quran journey was really a journey.
There were times when I wanted to give up. So many times. There were times when I became so frustrated because I was so close to finishing a juz but those last few pages were just too difficult to memorize quickly.
During my hifth years I also became a very emotional person. I started taking everything personally, I became an overthinker and many times my emotions got the better of me.
So many things happened that sometimes I would lose track of what my purpose there really was. My goal became memorising each juz instead of looking for the beauty in each ayah.
During my last year I had to memorise thirteen and a half ajazaah because the following year, our school was no longer going to be able to accomate female students and going to another school was out of the question. It would just be another emotional setback.
So I completed those thirteen and a half juz in eight months alhamdulillaah and after my graduation life had to go on.
Today I can say that I am so grateful Allaah chose me for this, and I am grateful of every stumbling block I experienced during my journey because it helped shape me and be the person I am learning to love today alhamdulillaah.
I thank Allaah for choosing me for this journey. May Allaah grant me and all of your to be worthy of memoring His diving Words ameen.
