Ask @AdnanLovesAllah:

How much should I memorize each day approximately? I believe juz amma is surah 78 to the end. Correct me if I'm wrong

You're right, and it depends on you, a lot of the suwar you should already find easy as you've heard them a lot, and like I said it depends on you... you could try a page a day, and try like 1-3 hours a day minimum. Make sure you revise as you go along too.

Can I memorize juz amma (30th para) in Ramadan? How long should it take?

It depends on the person, don't wait till Ramadan to start, but start now.
What can help is listening to a recording of a recitation of the Surah you want to memorise...
You could even finish in 2 weeks, or it could take you three months. Make sure you keep repeating and repeating ayaat, it helps with memorizing a lot

Can u name some people from the groups of tabien and taba tabien?

Some people from the tabi'in:
Imam Abu Hanifah (some people dispute this but I believe he was a tabi'i, not that my opinion matters anyway), Ibn Jurayd, Ibn Ishaaq, Mujahid (the student of Ibn 'Abbas), al-Hasan al-Basri (the student of Ibn Mas'ud), Ahnaf bin Qais, the great khalifah Umar bin Abdul Aziz, Ata, and others...
Some people from the the generation that followed:
Imam Malik, al-Shafi'i, al-Thawri, the great Imam al-Awza'i, and maybe Layth bin Sa'd, unless he was consdered a tabi'i (who was considered a greater Imam than Imam Malik himself!), and others like Sufyan bin 'Uyayna who memorized the Qur'an when he was just 3 years old!

JazakAllah Khayr for that explanation, it helped a lot. I always have a problem when I look at the diff. of opinions, and see one as stronger. Because I need to respect that these are scholars, and I need know my place...so I normally just back away :/

That's basically why one reasons on why scholars recommend following a school to begin with, so a lay person doesn't get confused with different opinions, but in your situation it should be okay as I mentioned exceptional cases where a person is really convinced and trusts such and such opinion more

Although I think the opinion saying it's permissible makes sense, I don't think I have the right to say so because I have next to no knowledge. And I don't want to ignore it because reading Qur'an is a big part of my life. I don't want to stop memorising, or get out of the habit of reading a lot

If you trust their ijtihad in that, then there's no harm in following it. And it's not about having the right to say that, but it's the right to say it's stronger, but to trust and believe something is stronger is something else. The main thing is making sure that you're following someone qualified, and not just any person in general. And it's actually normal for some people in exceptional cases to do further reading/research on a certain issue, and be convinced that the position in your maddhab may seem weaker, so there's no problem in following Imam Ibn Taymiyyah and Imam Ahmad in this case, may Allah have mercy upon them.

I also have a Qur'an class that I've been looking forward to for a long time (my teacher went abroad), and the classes are only an hour a week...so you can see my position.

Wa 'alaykummussalam.
If an opinion makes more sense to you, (in can happen), and it seems stronger, then it's haraam for you to not follow that opinion. You follow who you trust more basically, and in some matters, in can seem clear for some. There's no doubt to differ between opinions you have to be a strong student, but this doesn't mean that you HAVE to stick to your madd-hab always, because even within the madhaahib you have differing in opinion, so you have to follow who you trust more, so if you trust that opinion, then there's no harm in following it. The madhahib are like a leaway to understanding the Qur'an and the sunnah, and it doesn't mean that you ALWAYS have to stick to them, so if you want to trust Imam Ahmad's opinion in this regard, there's no problem. On yawm al qiyamah you aren't going to be asked about your maddhab, but you can be judged upon what seemed stronger, and following your maddhab over an opinion that seems to be clearer can be dangerous. So if you did do research and you're fully convinced that the opinion does seem stronger, then there's no harm in following it.
I follow a maddhab myself, and use it like a template basically, but in certain issues I did research and was convinced of following other opinions that aren't the main maddhab view, etc, and I'd actually be worried not to. This doesn't mean that you go and pick and choose opinions, but that in some exceptional cases, it is okay to following an opinion from outside of your maddhab, does that make sense?

What are ur views on nouman ali khan lectures?

There are benefits, he usually speaks about Arabic and tafsir, and with tafsir he doesn't really go into 'aqidah so there's nothing wrong with it, there's actually a lot to benefit from, especially to help people start practicing, etc. May Allah reward him for his efforts, ameen!

ok i told some mawlid is bidah.. & they said oh having the quran in its translated form is bidah, i was like thats for the non arab speakers and to undertstand and dawah, and the person was like just tell me translation of quran is bida or not.. hes trying to play around.. how do i answer, just bcs

These people don't understand 'bid'ah' properly. The scholars have already mentioned there's a difference between worldly innovation and innovation in the din, the latter being haraam. As for translations, they aren't innovation, they're basically interpretation.

My sister often walks around the house with shoes on it annoys me so much, I know she's worn them in the room. I can't pray there without the musallah can I?

The 'asl is if you DOUBT that there's impurity, that doesn't mean it becomes impure. Doubt doesn't negate purity, this principle applies to clothing too...
So you can pray, but if you want to remove the worry, you can use a mat. You could wash the floor too.
If you find out later that there was impurity, you don't have to repray your prayers.

is a prayer mat necessary for prayer? or anything clean pure surface will do? can u give some examples so i understand

You can pray on any clean surface as long as it's permissible to pray there, and your salah is accepted...
The 'asl is everything is pure, so doubt doesn't remove this. If you pray on a impure surface thinking it's okay to pray on before (in a place permissible to pray at), then you don't have to redo your prayer.

how can someone become attached to the Qur'an?

It depends on what is meant by 'attached'
Just recite, but focus on the meaning and acting upon the Qur'an too. If you don't already, study Arabic to be able to understand the Qur'an...
Start from today, and try to read a certain amount daily, and so on. The month of Ramadan is a good time to fix up too, just look at the people of the past and how much they recited the Qur'an during the month of Ramadan...
It was reported Imam ash-Shafi'i used to complete the Qur'an 60 times in Ramadan, all during prayer!
The Prophet (Salallahu 'alayhi wasallaam) said: “The one who is skilled in reciting Qur’an will be with the noble, honourable scribes and the one who recites Qur’an and falters therein, and finds it difficult, will have a double reward.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari (4937) and Muslim (798).
(Translation of the hadeeth taken from http://islamqa.info/en/212820)
The following is also taken from http://islamqa.info/en/196054:
'It is proven in the saheeh Sunnah that the Qur’an will intercede for its companions on the Day of Resurrection. Muslim (804) narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (Salallahu 'alayhi wasallaam) say: “Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection interceding for its companions.”'

I have the app 'iQuran Lite' and I realised everytime the ayat about Allah being above the Throne is mentioned the translator had written 'firm in power'. I think it's the Shakir version, do you know why the person says this instead? All the other translation say above the Throne

I don't know, but that's a mistake in translating. It's the Mu'tazilah and others who interpreted the istiwa as 'conquering', etc.
