    10 Reasons We Should Memorise the Qur'an (OP)


    10 Reasons We Should Memorise the Qur'an



    Allah the exalted says:

    Indeed those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer, and spend (in His cause] out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, [can] expect a Transaction [i.e., profit] that will never perish” (Surah 35. Fatir, Verse 29)

    Reciting the book of Allah is mentioned alongside establishing Salaah and spending in the way of Allah. This clearly shows us that reciting the book of Allah is among the best of good deeds.

    Aboo Moosaa al-Asha'aree reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said, "The believer who recites the Qur'aan is like a citrus fruit - its fragrance is pleasing and its taste is sweet. The believer who does not recite the Qur'aan is like a dry date - it has no fragrance but its taste is sweet. The hypocrite who recites the Qur'aan is like a basil - its fragrance is sweet, but its taste is bitter. The hypocrite who does not recite the Qur'aan is like a colocynth - it has no smell, and its taste is bitter" (Muslim)

    Aboo Moosaa al-Ash'aree reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said, "Part of Showing glory to Allaah is to show respect to a white-haired Muslim, and a carrier of the Qur'aan who does not exaggerate in it (i.e., overstep its bounds) nor ignore it (i.e., leave it), and a just ruler" (Aboo Dawoood)


    Clearly from this hadith we can see that part of showing glory to Allah is to show respect to the memoriser of the Qur'an who is mentioned alongside a just ruler who is of the best of people.

    The following are 10 reasons why we should all recite, practise upon and memorise the Qur'an as much as we can until our last breath:


    1. Highest ranks of Jannah for the Memoriser of the Qur'an:

    Ibn 'Amr reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said:

    "It will be said to the companion of the Qur'aan after he has entered Paradise, 'Recite, and rise!' For every verse he recites he will rise one level (in Paradise), until he recites the last verse with him (i.e., in his memory)." (Aboo Dawood)

    This Hadith mentions the merit of those who memorize part or all of the Qur’an. Some scholars, in explaining this Hadith, have mentioned that the number of ranks (levels) in Paradise is equal to the number of ayahs (verses) in the Qur’an, and that a believer will rise one rank for each ayah (verse) that he or she memorizes. Obviously, the one who memorised the whole Qur'an will stop at the last verse of the Quran meaning they will be of those among the highest ranks of paradise.

    Whoever memorizes Quraan and acts upon it, Allaah will reward him and honour him greatly for that, so that he will rise in status in Paradise to a level commensurate with what he memorized of the Book of Allaah.

    Subhanallah! We should all memorise as much of the Qur'an as we can until our last breath for every ayah we memorise will result in higher ranks in Jannah!


    2. The Highest Honour for the Parents of the Memoriser of the Qur'an


    “Mu'aadh al-Juhani narrates that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: 'Whosoever recites the Quran and practices upon its injunctions, the reciter's parents will be given a crown on the day of Qiyaamat. The brightness of that crown will be more intense than the brightness of the sun in your actual house.'

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) further said: 'What do you think will be given to the Hafiz (reciter) of the Quran himself?'” (Mishkaat Vol I.)

    So not only will the Hafiz recieve rewards beyond comprehension but it will also mean the highest honour for the parents who will wear a crown on Qiyamat. We try so hard to make our parents proud in this world but imagine how proud they will be on that day. Subhanallah!

    It was narrated that Buraydah said: “The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: ‘Whoever reads the Qur’aan, learns it and acts in accordance with it, on the Day of Resurrection his parents will be given a crown to wear whose light will be like the light of the sun, and his parents will be given garments which far surpass everything to be found in this world. They will say, “Why have we been given this to wear?” It will be said, “Because your child learned the Qur’aan.”’”(Narrated by al-Haakim, 1/756)


    So let us ALL be of those who are given such high honour on the day of judgement and encourage our children to become memorisers of the Qur'an. But those parents who prevented their child from learning the Qur’aan will be of those who lost out for eternity!



    3. The best person is he who learns the Qur'an & teaches it



    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it. (Sahih Al-Bukhari)


    4. The memoriser of the Qur'an is worthy of envy in this world


    The memoriser of the Qur'an will is of two people who we should be envious of in this world:

    Ibn 'Amr reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said, "There is no cause to be envious except in two cases: (the first is of a) person whom Allaah has taught the Qur'aan, and he recites it in the day and night, and one of his neighbours hears him and says, 'Woe to me! I wish I had been given what he has been given, then I would do what he is doing! (The second is of a) person whom Allah has blessed with wealth, and he spends it in good causes, so a person (who sees him) says, 'Woe to me! I wish I had been given what he has been given, then I would do what he is doing!" (al-Bukhaaree)



    5. Every letter the Memoriser of the Qur'an recites is rewarded ten times or more


    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: “Whoever recites one Word from the Book of Allah will be rewarded for a good deed and ten more like it; and I don’t say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter but Alif is a letter and Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter” (Tirmidhi & Al-Dareemi)

    So for every letter of the Qur'an the memoriser recieved a minimum or ten rewards and of course Allah can reward a person much more if he wants to. The Qur'an has over 6000 verses and each verse has many alphabets. So can you imagine the number of alphabets the memoriser of the Qur'an recites. He will recite one verse again and again and has to continuously recite the Qur'an to keep it fresh in his heart. Surely he would have gained millions of rewards by completing the Qur'an just once. Thereafter he will go over a verse again and again in his mind and he would have recited the Qur'an again and again resulting in rewards beyong mathamatical calculations and our limited comprehension.


    6. The Qur'an will intercede for the Memoriser of the Qur'an:


    It was narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili said:“I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) say: ‘Recite the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection to intercede for its companions. Recite the two bright ones, al-Baqarah and Soorat Aal ‘Imraan, for they will come on the Day of Resurrection like two clouds or two shades or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Soorat al-Baqarah for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it.” (Muslim: 804, Al-Bukhaari).

    A day when we will be in great need of an intercession the Qur'an will intercede for the memoriser of the Qur'an.


    7. Jannah for the one who memorised the Qur'an


    Hadrat Ali (RA) reports that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

    “Anyone who knows the Quran by heart and follows the lawful and the prohibited according to it, he will be sent to Heaven by Allah U.” (Tirmidhi).

    As long as the memoriser of the Qur'an following the lawful and kept away from the prohibited then he will be granted Jannah.


    8. A crown and garment of honour for the Memoriser of the Qur'an

    Aboo Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said, "The Qur'aan will be brought on the Day of Judgement, and it will say, 'O My Lord! Adorn him (the one who read and practised it)!' So he will be adorned with the crown of glory and honour . It will then say, 'O My Lord! Increase this!' So he will be clothed with the clothes of glory and honour. Then it will say, 'O My Lord! Be pleased with Him! So He (Allaah) will be pleased with him. It will be said, 'Recite! And rise!' and every verse he recites will bless him with a good deed" (at-Tirmidhee)


    What an honour it would be when on such a day of terror the memoriser of the Qur'an would be given such a high honour and adorned with a crown and garment of glory and honour.


    9. The Memoriser of the Qur'an will be saved from the fire


    'Ismah Ibn Maalik reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: "If the Qur'aan is enclosed by skin (i.e., if a person memorises the entire Qur'aan), then Allaah will never burn it in the Fire (of Hell) (al-Bayhaqee)



    10. Double reward for those who try hard to memorise the Qur'an


    Aaishah that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: The likeness of the one who reads Quraan and memorizes it is that he is with the righteous honourable scribes. The likeness of the one who reads it and tries hard to memorize it even though it is difficult for him, he will have (at least) a double reward. (Al-Bukhaari, 4937)

    So we must NEVER give up memorising the Qur'an even though we may struggle to learn a single verse for it maybe that shaythan will try hard to make a person give up knowing that he will recieve double rewards for it if he continues.

    Allah rewards a person according to their intention and sincerety so if one is sincere and intends to learn the Qur'an and dies whilst doing so then it maybe that Allah may raise such a person amongst those who actually memorised the Qur'an. Subahanallah!

    We must NEVER think we cannot do it because we can accomplish anything we want to accomplish. The only thing stopping us is ourselves! If an 82 year old Grandmother can memorise the entire Qur'an then why can't any of us?

    Please read the follwong story of an 82 year old Grandmother who managed to memorise the entire Qur'an:

    An Interview with Umm Saalih, A Grandmother Who Completed Memorizing the Qur’an at 82 Years Old

    May Allah enable us and our children to learn the Qur'an and implement it into our daily lives. Ameen

    Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmat Allaah,

    I just wanted to share something quite amazing about memorisation of The Qur'aan.

    I once knew this kid in my area since he around 7 or 8 years old. I grew up with him. He was quite a character. His father was a Hafidh of The Qur'aan ma sha Allaah.

    Anyway I moved from that area a no. of years back and didn't see the kid for quite some time. I heard he went to Egypt for some time.

    Anyway a few days ago I bumped into him. I was very surprised because I wasn't expecting to see him. It happened so unexpectedly.

    I was really happy to see him as that little kid I once knew was all grown up and now looked like a young man with a beard ma sha Allaah.

    I asked him how old he was now and he said he was 16.

    I spoke to him a for a while and learnt that he went to Egypt to memorise The Qur'aan. It took him 2 years and now he's a Hafidh at the age of 16, ma sha Allaah.

    He led the tarawih prayers this year with another older shaykh, ma sha Allaah.

    When I heard that I was so happy for him as he has been able to achieve one of the greatest achievements a muslim can achieve. May Allaah help us understand and act upon what we memorise.

    Stories like this should be a source of inspiration for us because if someone that young can memorise The Qur'aan then surely it is something that adults can also do.

    Allaah is The One who's help is sought in this. There is no ease except in that which Allaah makes easy.

    Al-Shafi'i (RA) said:


    I complained to Waki` about my bad memorisation

    So he advised me to abandon sins

    He said: Know that knowledge is light

    But Allah's Light is not granted to a disobedient!

    Re: 10 Reasons We Should Memorise the Qur'an

    Salam, in my opinion a important reason behind memorizing Holy Qur'an is to preserve during those times when publishing and printing was not an easy task. Few copies of Holy book were used for the purpose of memorization for rest of the community used to utilize to services of a person who already memorized the Holy Qur'an. In my opinion, it was the main cause of Holy Qur'an memorization.

    Re: 10 Reasons We Should Memorise the Qur'an

    Yes we should. Memorizing just a few verses daily and then reciting them in all the prayers (every Rakah) is an excellent way to memorize the Quran steadily. So how much are you memorizing daily / weekly? I am revising Juz 30 now which I memorized before.

    Re: 10 Reasons We Should Memorise the Qur'an

    The memoriser of the Qur'an is placed in front of others in a common grave, closer to the qiblah, if it is essential to bury him with others.

    It was narrated that Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said: “The Prophet would wrap two of the men slain at Uhud in a single cloth, then he would ask, ‘Which of them knew more Qur’aan?’ If one of them was pointed out to him, he would put that one in the lahd (niche in the side of the grave) first. And he said, ‘I will be a witness over these people on the Day of Resurrection.’ He commanded that they should be buried with their blood, without being washed, and that no funeral prayer should be offered for them.” (al-Bukhaari, 1278)

    although the Quran was memorized as a way of preservation, this is not the main reason, for memorisation [oral conveyance into peoples hearts] is the primary and most effective way of Quran having an impact/influence on the heart; 'Quran' means 'the recitation', it is recited [i.e orally conveyed] before it is written
