Unable to Complete one Khatam every month after vowing to do so due to Hifz

Q: I made a mannat that if my wish is fulfilled I will pray tahajud, 500 times durood shareef every day and finish one Qur'an every month. I pray tahajud and durood ever day, but since I started memorising Quran cannot finish one Qur'an every month. Please tell me what is kuffarah.

A: We suggest that you decrease the hifz and this will enable you to complete the Qur’aan every month.
