بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Today, I’ll be starting a new project, insha-Allah, entitled “Memorise Ayah by Ayah”.
This is for those who wish to memorise the Quran but are still in the early stages and need motivation.
Insha-Allah, I’ll be posting one ayah (verse) each day for the first 20 days of Ramadan and then continue in Shawwal.
For each ayah, I’ll be putting up an image of how it looks likes on the mushaf and the tajweed mushaf, as well as its translation, word-to-word translation, audio recitation (three recitors) and a short tafsir (commentary).
Insha-Allah, I look forward to your feedback, suggestions and constructive criticism.
Note: I haven’t started with Surah Al-Fatihah nor have I put up the Basmalah (Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim). For those who want to learn that, I’ve put up a post on them on my New Muslim blog.
“Say (O Muhammad): “He is Allah, (the) One.” [Surah Al-Ikhlaas (112) : 1]

Listen to the translation (Download):
Tafsir As-Saadi (from here):
“Say,” with certainty, believing it and understanding its meaning, “He is Allah, the One and only,” Oneness is something unique to Him and He is one in every sense. He is one, singular in His perfection, having the Most Beautiful Names and perfect Lofty Attributes coupled with pure deeds. There is nothing comparable to Him or like Him.”
Tafsir Ibn Kathir (from here):
(Say: “He is Allah, One.”) meaning, He is the One, the Singular, Who has no peer, no assistant, no rival, no equal and none comparable to Him. This word (Al-Ahad) cannot be used for anyone in affirmation except Allah the Mighty and Majestic, because He is perfect in all of His attributes and actions.
