Mnemonics (pronounced ne-monik) is a memory aid in the form of a word, phrase or story. It is derived from a Greek word ‘mnemonikon’ – an art of memorisation. "And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind?" (54:17). Hifz ul Qur’an or memorisation of the Qur’an is an aspiration for all Muslims. Q114 is a modular study of the Qur’an beginning with the familiarisation of the names of the suwer of Qur’an in sequence using the Link system. The Link system of memory is designed to enable one to remember any number of things in sequence. The process is divided into three stages
1. Encoding the elements of information into visual images as they are far easier to memorise than text.
2. The memorisation process itself
3. Remembering the sequence of information
For example, most of us are able to remember the colours of the rainbow by using an mnemonic such as 'Richard of York gave battle in vain'. Here the initial letters of the seven words give us the colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. This example demonstrates two elements of memorisation: imagination and association. Thus you create a sentence (imagination) using words starting with the initial letters of the colours (association).
The first step is to create focus points or 'pegs' on which we can 'hang' on the mnemonics. You will find suggestions under the focus points section.
