The best way to memorize the Qur’an differs from individual to individual. Understanding the meaning is important for all. Some rely on vision more than sound, others sound more than vision, others need a combination.
It is not necessary to memorize in order, but it is very useful so there will not be gaps in your memorization later.
Applying the aayaat to our life is very important and the essence of the revelation. The Qur’an was revealed as a guidance for mankind. As Muslims we should apply all the aayaat in the Qur’an to our lives, whether we have memorized them or not. Certainly the companions of the Prophet, , were keen on learning and applying the words of Allah to their lives as shown in the following hadeeth: It was narrated that Abu ‘Abd al-Rahmaan said: The companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) who used to teach us Qur’aan told us that they would learn ten aayaat, then they would not move on to the next ten aayaat until they had learned the knowledge contained therein and how to act upon it. They said, So we learned the knowledge and how to put it into practice. Ahmad, 22384
It is not a prerequisite to have applied the aayaat to our lives before moving on to the next section for memorization, but this is highly praiseworthy and the path we should strive towards. And Allah knows best.
