This article examines the approaches in sustaining Qur’anic memorization as well as memory theories in sustaining memorization. Thus, the objective of this study is to explore the approaches in sustaining Qur’anic memorization among secondary school graduates. To acquire the data, a case study design was adopted, including semi-structured interviews with eight huffaz (someone who has memorized the Quran) based on particular criteria. The data suggest that there are 11 approaches in sustaining Qur'anic memorizing, with recitation, repetition, division, tafsir (exegesis), and audio being the top five. Apart from that, translation, tasmi' (reciting to someone else), division, visualization, imitating the Qari's (person who recites the Quran with the proper rules of recitation) style of recitation, categorization and reciting during prayer are among other ways that can be used. Recitation is the most commonly used approach among the participants, it should be used regularly by others who are attempting to maintain their knowledge of the Qur'an. Furthermore, schools should provide guidance to aspire huffaz on how to maintain memorization even after years of completing the memorization of Qur’an in secondary school.
