Du’as and Deeds for memorisation

Question

I came across these Duas for Memorisation:

 اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْـتَنِي وَ عَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ فَهْمَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَ حِفْظَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لِسَانِي عَامِرًا بِذِكْرِكَ وَ قَلْبِي بِخَشْيَتِك.إِنَّكَ عَلَى مَا تَشَاءُ قَدِيرٌ وَ أَنْتَ حَسْـبُنَا وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ

 

After Studying:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَوْدِعُكَ مَا قَرأتُ وَمَا حَفَظْتُ، فَرُضُهُ عَليّ عِنْدَ حَاجَتِي إِلَيهِ، إِنّكَ عَلى مَا تَشَاءُ قَدِيرُ وَأَنْتَ حَسْبِي وَنِعْمَ الوَكِيل

Please provide reference or any other duas from Hadith for memorisation esp Hifz.

Answer

The scholars have enlisted many practices for boosting the memory, however most of these practices are based on experience and are not from the hadith. There is no harm in practicing upon these as long as one is aware of the above.

The du’as you cited also seem to be from someone’s experience.

1. Al-Mughirah ibn Subai’- a student of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu)- says: “Whoever will recite the following ten verses before sleeping will never forget the Quran; .first 4 verses of Surah Baqarah, Ayatul-kursi, with the 2 verses that follow it and the last 3 verses of Surah Baqarah. (Sunan Darimi, Hadith: 3650)

 

2. My Honourable teacher, Al-Muhaddith Muhammad ‘Awwamah (may Allah protect him) usually recommends the following salat on Nabi (sallalahu’alaihi wasallam) to be recited frequently daily between Maghrib and ‘Isha salah:

“Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ‘ala sayyidina Muhammadiw wa alihi kama la nihayata likamalika wa ‘adada kamalih”
