Why memorise the Qur’an?

Memorisation of the Qur’an has been the bedrock of an Islamic education since the early centuries of Islam. The great scholars of the Islamic civilisation would begin their journey of sacred knowledge by committing the Word of God to memory in its entirety. With the commencement of Abu Zahra Foundation’s Qur’an Memorisation Academy, it is our aim to bring this tradition alive again in our community for young boys and girls to experience this time-honoured tradition.



Abu Hurayrah said

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: “The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: ‘The Qur’an will come on the Day of Resurrection like a pale man saying to its companion, “Do you recognise me? I am the one who made you stay up at night and made you thirsty during the day…” Then he will be given dominion in his right hand and eternity in his left, and a crown of dignity will be placed upon his head, and his parents will be clothed with garments which far surpass everything to be found in this world. They will say, “O Lord, how did we earn this.” It will be said to them, “Because you taught your child the Qur’an.”’”

Unique features of the Programme

This will be a unique programme allowing the student to complete the memorisation of the Qur’an in a short period of time. It will combine the best practice of the traditional Arab system of memorisation which focuses heavily on takrār (group repetition) placing great emphasis on correct pronunciation (tajwīd) and the Indian Subcontinent method of murāji’ah (consistent review). This will produce memorisers of the Qur’an with clarity and precision in recitation as well as excellent retention, in sha’ Allah.

Class size will be small to maximise student-teacher interaction. On-going parent consultation and feedback will ensure that students excel in achieving their daily targets for memorisation.
