Why don't you spend 2020 trying to memorize the Quran instead? I'm not joking here; you'd be able to claim the title of Hafiz - guardian - in Arabic.
> but i'm not mussslim, Anon
That'd be even funnier. Imagine strutting around demanding that mozzies call you Hafiz whilst using their own doctrine to refute their religion?

>> No.14437796

nice trips. how long is the quran?

memorizing poems is pseud tier and doesn't mean you enjoy them necessarily

In Arabic or Enligsh though? I’ll unironically do it

It’s shortest from all the major holy texts and Muslim boys do this all the time

you forgot the part where it also means the memorizer. in muslim society, you're treated almost as royalty. almost similar to burgers and being veterans.

Lorca is a good way to start, specially his Romancero. All the generación del 27, even though they are shit are easily to remember. After that you can go to better shit like Quevedo or myself.
