Why should we memorize the Quran?
Why should we memorize the Quran? Following are the reasons due to which any one can get motivation for memorizing the Quran
- The status of the one who memorizes Qur’an will be commensurate with the last ayah he memorized.
It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allah ibn ‘Amr that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an
(i.e., the one who memorized and studied it): ‘Read, advance in status and recite as you used to do in the world, for your status will be commensurate with the last ayah that you recite.’” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2914)

- The Qur’an will intercede for him with his Lord.
It was narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say, ‘Recite the Qur’an, 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.
” (Narrated by Muslim, 804, and by al-Bukhaari in a mu’allaq report).
- He will be with the Angles:
The Mother of all the Muslims Hazrat Ayesha (peace and blessings of Allah be upon Her) narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said:
“The person who reads the Qur’an and has the memory of it, then his position will be with the Most Gracious Angels and the one, who read the Qur’an and tries to memorize it, but he has a hard problem, then he has a double reward”. (Bukhari)
- The Highest Honor for the Parents of the Memorizer of the Qur’an
Mu’aadh al-Juhani narrates that the Prophet (PBUH) 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 (PBUH) further said: ‘What do you think will be given to the Hafiz (reciter) of the Quran himself?’” (Mishkaat Vol I.)
- Hafiz e Quran is the best person
Hazrat e Usman (May Allah be pleased with Him) narrated from the Holy Prophet (PBUH),
“The person who learns and teaches the Qur’an is best.”
- Every letter the Memorizer of the Qur’an recites is rewarded ten times or more.
The Prophet (PBUH) 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)
- He who memorized the Qur’an took the knowledge of Prophecy in his chest.
- Whoever memorizes the Qur’an becomes safe from useless age
Hence, we should memorize the Quran so that we may get these rewards form the Allah Almighty.
