Importance of Memorizing Quran – 20 benefits
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all that exists, and may prayers of
blessings and peace be upon the messenger of Allah.
Al Haafidh as Suyootee said, “Teaching the children the Quran is a
fundamental from the fundamentals of Islam. By it the child will grow up
upon the fitrah, and the lights of wisdom will rush to their hearts before the
desires are able to settle in them and darken them with the cloudiness of
disobedience and misguidance.”
Ibn Taymiyyah said,” Concerning seeking to memorize the Quran, it has
precedence over much of what the people call knowledge, and is either
falsehood or of little benefit.”
So that the joy of the parent will be complete, they should know what is in
store for their children by knocking at his great door (the door to Quran
memorization). For indeed Allah has guaranteed and promised many fruits
(benefits and blessings) for memorizing His Book. Below is a list of 20
1. VIP status in this life, death, and beyond. The haafiz (the memorizer) is a
true VIP. He automatically qualifies for some roles of leadership by virtue of
being a haafiz. For example, in a prayer congregation, the one who knows
more Quran leads the prayer.
Even at the time of death you’re honoured. The haafizah is placed ahead of
the everyone else in a mass burial. At the battle of Uhud, the Prophet buried
the martyrs who had memorized the Quran in front of those who hadn’t, to
highlight their superiority.
And in the hereafter, “the one who recites the Qur’aan and learns it by heart,
will be with the noble righteous scribes”(Al-Bukhari). Also, you will have a
special intercession, a day when we are in desperate need of all the help
possible to intercede for us with Allaah. And elevation of their status in this
life and in the hereafter because of Quran memorization.
This is due to the statement of the prophet (pbuh): “Indeed Allah will elevate
some people with this book and he will degrade others with it.”(Muslim)
So congratulations to you that your son or daughter will be of those whose
status this magnificent Quran elevates and exalts.
2. Allah intending good for your children. This is due to the statement of
the prophet, “Whoever Allah intends good for He gives him the understanding
of the religion.” (Al-Bukhari). The greatest understanding of the religion is
the recitation and memorization of Allah’s book, because it is the first source
3. They will be the people of Allah and His chosen ones because of Quran
memorization. This is due to the statement of the prophet, “Verily, Allah the
exalted has people from among mankind, and the people of the Quran are the
people of Allah and his chosen ones.”(Ahmed and An Nisai). This Hadith was
graded authentic by Sheikh Al Albaanee in Sahih Al Jaami As Sagheer, Vol-
1, no-2165. It was also collected by Ibn Maajah and Al Hakim. memorize Quran online
4. Honouring them is a form of honouring Allah. This is due to the
statement of the prophet, “Verily, it is a form of honoring Allah, the Most
high, that the gray haired Muslim is respected and the one who carries
(memorizes) the Quran without exaggeration in it, nor neglecting it.”( Abu
5. They are given precedence in burial because of Quran memorization.
Jaabir bin Abdullah narrated that the prophet used to put two men together of
those who were killed at the battle of Uhad. Then he would say, “Which of
them memorized more of the Quran?” So if one of them was pointed out he
would be placed in the niche (lahd) of the grave first. (Al Bukhari).
6. They are safe from the trial of the Dajjal (the great deceiver or false
messiah). The prophet said,” Whoever memorizes ten verses from the
beginning of Surah Al Kahf, he will be protected from the Dajjal.”(Muslim).
7. 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
8. Your child will wear the garments of honor because of Quran
memorization. The prophet said, “The Quran will come on the Day of
Judgement and say, ‘So Lord! Adorn him. ’So the person will be made to
wear the crown of honor. Then it will say, ‘Oh Lord! Increase him!’ So the
person will be made to wear the garment of honor.
Then it will say, ‘Oh Lord! Be pleased with him.’ So Allah will be pleased
with him. Then it will be said, Recite and ascend.’ And the person will
receive an extra good deed for every verse (that he recites of the Quran).”
(At Tirmidhi) This Hadith was graded good (hasan) by Sheikh Al Albaanee
in Shaheeh Al Jaami As Sagheer, Vol-2, No-8030.
9. The Quran will intercede for whoever loves it on the Day of the greatest
Terror that is the Judgement Day. The prophet (pbuh), “Recite the Quran, for
verily it will come on the Day of Judgement as and intercessor for those who
10. 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!
11. The Quran will be a proof on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet said,
“The Quran will be brought on the Day of Judgment along with its people
who acted according to it. They will be preceded by Surah Al Baqarah and
Al Imran, and these two Surahs will plead the case of whoever recited
12. Your child will attain the status of the honorable and obedient scribes
among the angles. The prophet said, “The one who recites the Quran
proficiently will be with the honourable and obedient scribes (of the
13. 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 6666 verses and ever verse has so many alphabets. 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.
14. Safety and salvation from the Hell-fire. The Prophet (pbuh) said: “If
the Quran is gathered in a body (i.e. a person) Allah will not burn him with
the Fire.” (Al-Baihaqee in Ash-Shu’ab and Al-Albaanee graded it good).
15. Safety of the heart from destruction.
The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Verily, He who does not have anything inside of
him of the Quran is like a demolished house.” (At Tirmidhi).
16. Your child will have the manners of those who carry (i.e. memorize)
the Quran. Ibn Mas’ood (ra) said: “The one who memorizes the Quran
should be known by his night (i.e. praying at night) when the people are
sleeping, and by his day (i.e. fasting) while the people are eating, and by his
pious abstinence when the people are mingling, and by his humbleness when
the people are boasting, and by his sadness when the people are happy, and
by his crying when the people are laughing, and by his silence when the
people are chatting.” Therefore, Quran memorization will cause your child
to be favored by these aspects of beautiful and virtuous character. It is
sufficient for your son and daughter to be proud that they are carrying the
Words of the Lord of all that exists in their chests.
They are Words that no falsehood may come to them from before them or
behind them. This is even more auspicious in a time when the chests of the
young men and women have become filled with that which is silly and
17. 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. memorize Quran online
18. 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
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!
19. One of the miracles of the Quran is that Allaah made it easy for us to
memorize, as He, subhaanahu wa ta’aala, said:
َولَقَ ۡد يَ َس ۡرنَا ٱۡلقُ ۡر َءا َن ِلل ِذِ ۡك ِر فَ َه ۡل ِمن ُمدَ ِكر
And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember,
then is there any that will remember? [Al-Qamar:17,22,32,40]
This verse repeats four times in the same chapter. The fact that the verses of
the Quran are so articulate and can never be reproduced by the most
eloquent of poets and writers, but yet can be memorized from cover to cover
is proof that Allah has indeed made it easy.
Nonetheless, there are instances when memorization can be difficult, such as
being exposed to Quran and Arabic for the first time after childhood, or
having a memory problem, or dealing life circumstances that make
commitment difficult. Although, these may seem like obstacles, they are
actually sources of motivation, because the Prophet of Allaah said, “The
likeness of the one who reads it and tries hard to memorize it even though it
is difficult for him, he will have a double reward”. [Al-Bukhari].
20. Role Model: It goes without saying that you’ll be a model for your
children to follow as you’ve achieved or are working on what you’ve been
encouraging them to do. Think of the example you’d be setting for your
children, especially your daughters, particularly in a society that invests
more in boys when it comes to Quran.
You’ll also be a true role model for other Muslim women, single and
married alike. Allaah and His messenger made you superior to others,
singled you out as the best person, and crowned you as the epitome of envy.
Why wouldn’t anyone want to be like you?!
Whether you are single or married, a mom of one child or eight, memorizing
Quran IS for you and IS achievable. With dua, sincerity, and a positive
attitude, you will be successful because Allah’s promise is true.
Since the Quran is the word of Allah Almighty, when you memorize it , this
will be the best you ever done! Memorizing the Quran will open all the
doors of good for you. Memorizing the Quran means that you will obtain ten
good deeds for each letter! If you know, for example that the number of
letters in the shortest Surah in the Quran, which is Surah Al-Kawthar, is 42
letters. This Surah can be read in seconds, which means that whenever you
read it, your account at Allah Almighty will increase to 420 good deeds,
each one of these good deeds is much better than this World and what is in
it!! Consider how many good deeds you will gain when you read the whole
Quran which includes more than three hundred thousand letters!!
The Quran includes all the sciences of this World and the Hereafter, the
stories of ancestors and successors. It includes many of the scientific,
cosmic, legislative and medical facts, and it includes also provisions, laws
and legislation that regulate the life of a believer and make him much
happier. This means that when you memorize the Quran, you memorize the
When you memorize the Quran, your expressing ability will be stronger
because of the classic Arabic you acquire from the Quran. You will have
more ability for dealing, endurance and patience, because memorizing the
Quran is not only like memorizing a poem, a story, or a song.
when you memorize the Quran, in fact you are changing your attitude
towards everything around you, and thus your behavior will be following
what you have memorized Our Lady Aysha (May Allah be pleased with her)
was asked about the ethics of the Prophet and she said, “His ethics was the
Quran”!! If you would like your ethics be like the Prophet’s (pbuh), you have
to memorize the Quran.
The Quran is a healing for physical and psychological diseases. If reading
Al-Fatiha (The Opening) cures a patient if Allah permits, what about who
memorize the whole Quran? You will get rid of devilish whispers; your
body immunity will increase due to the great change you experience while
you are memorizing the Quran. This is not only a theoretical speech but a
real experience that is witnessed by those who memorized the Quran or parts
When you decide to memorize the Quran, you won’t have extra time,
boredom, nor a feeling of concern, stress and fear. The Quran will remove
concerns, grief and the accumulations of the past, you will be reborned.
