Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalamin
Was Salaatu was Salaamu ala Rasulillah
This is for the Hafiz and for the one who is studying towards reaching that rank. It is a list of the Mutashabihat of the Holy Quran. The word Mutashabihat is used here in the sense understood by the Huffaz, and not in the manner understood in the science of Ulum al-Quran. An ayah which closely resembles another one is called a Mutashabih. It is very tempting for the one who is memorising the Quran to ignore these ayat and to overlook them. But if he truly wants to know the Quran well, then it is imperative that he know which ayat are similar to other ones and the differences between them as well as where these ayat are to be found in the Quran, because it is said that the excellence of ones memorisation will be according to the excellence of ones knowledge of the Mutashabihat. The aim of this list is to assist in that endeavour. My advice would be to use this list to identify which ayat are regarded as Mutashabihat and then next to those ayat, pencil in the reference for the other ayat which are similar to it in the margin of your mushaf. When learning these ayat one should also learn the others which closely resemble it and pay particular attention to the similarities and differences between them. It is also important to know the location of each ayah.
May Allah (swt) make it easy for all the students of Hifz and may He increase the Huffaz in their knowledge of the Quran, Ameen.
