The Beauty Of Memorising The Holy Qur’aan

By UmmeLuqman

Assalaamu  Alaikum

My excitement of my son’s hifz jalsa actually tempted me to write this note

And may this sad story of mine affect  and influence da hearts of many  many mothers to send their sons InSha ALLAH TOWARDS  the direction of that path ,that Allah Ta’ala and his beloved Nabi[S.A.W.]  love most

INNA MA’AL USRI YUSRA FAINNA MA’AL USRI YUSRA

Indeed with difficulty there is ease and surely  with difficulty there is ease

jzk so much every1  for everything for all those who know me personally you know  how much i went through with this baby of mine from the time he was born  uptill now  I make dua to Allah to grant  my son long life to serve his deen AAMEEN

From the time he was born he experienced many difficulties  in his life  as far as his health was concerned

a life of pain suffering misery etc in and out of hospital, medication etc

if i go on and on it wont finish cos there is so much to discuss about

He was afflicted with many sicknesses and at one stage we actually gave up hope on him we thought that he would’nt make it ,But Allah Ta’ala is so great and so merciful that with everyone’s duaz he pulled through Alhumdulillah

As as he grew up   the medication he was taking at one stage made him forget most of his things and he couldn’t remember anything he even forgot where he stayed and who his parents were, and after monitoring his health continuosly and daily  he recuperated very fast and he insisted that he wants to become a Hafiz and he wants to finish it up we did feel sorry for him ‘but we didn’t stop him eithe’r  if this is what he wants this is what he will get  and BISMILLAH he was on his way to learn the Quraan and despite what he went through he managed  to make his Alalh Ta’ala happy and made us  all happy in the end

ADVICE TO MOTHERS IS NEVER TELL YOUR CHILD

ITS TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOU

NO YOU CAN’T MAKE IT

NO YOUR BRAINS CAN’T TAKE IT

ETC ETC.

A child can actually learn  Arabic and the Qur’aan from the age of 1

BELIEVE IT OR NOT ITS TRUE

if your child can memorise english songs and indian songs and nursery ryhmes etc then he is also ready to memorise the Qur’aan

The quickest and easiest way for him to memorise his  Qur’aan  is that one should recite Qur’aan daily

that cds and  cassettes etc should be played daily at home cos they grasp quicker and better in that manner and repetition of the Surahs Increases the hifzh memory and there  are so many success stories to  prove that

MAY ALLAH TA’ALA ACCEPT HIM FOR THE PURPOSE OF HIS DEEN  [Islam] AAMEEN

THE REWARDS OF ONE WHO BECOMES A HAFIZ

 IN THE DUNYA

The Hafiz of the Quran has such a rank in this world that he is one of only two types of people considered worthy of envy.

 Under the Chapter of the Blessedness of the Holy Quran’s keeper in Sahih Bukhari is the following hadith:

 “Abu Huraira t narrated that Rasulullah r said: There is no jealousy but of two men: A man whom Allah has taught the Quran and he recites is during the hours of the night and during the hours of the day, and his neighbor listens to him and says: “I wish I had been given what has been given to so-and-so, in order that I might do what he does; and a man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it on what is just and right, whereupon another man may say: “I wish I had been given what so-and-so has been given, for then I would do what he does” (Sahih Bukhari).

 In a riwaayah from Tirmidhi listed in Muntakhab Ahadith is the following detail of the reward for reciting each letter of the Quran:

 Abdullah ibn Masud t narrated that Rasulullah r said: He who reads one letter of the Quran it (becomes) for him a good deed, and a single good deed is rewarded (by Allah) by ten times the like thereof. I am not saying that Alif-Lam-Mim is (just) one word, but that Alif is a (separate) letter (word), Lam is a (separate) letter (word), and Mim is a (separate) letter (word). (Tirmidhi)

 Mufti Ebrahim Desai (db) writes:

 “For every alphabet of the Quran he had recited, he earned a minimum of ten rewards. The maximum reward is best known by Allah U. The Quran has 6666 verses. Every verse has many alphabets. Imagine the number of alphabets a Hafiz recites. On an average of 3 alphabets per verse a Hafiz will recite approximately, 20,000 (twenty thousand) alphabets in the entire Quran. That multiplied by ten rewards per alphabet is 200,000 (two hundred thousand). In the course of memorising the Quran, a Hafiz makes great sacrifices. He recites one verse many times. If he had recited one verse at least 10 times, the reward of completing the Quran only once will be two million. Imagine how many times thereafter, a Hafiz recites the Quran, how many Taraweehs he performs, the rewards of all that is far beyond our very limited comprehension. Probably, mathematical figures will be exhausted but not the infinite rewards of Allah U for a Hafiz-ul-Quran.”

 In addition to the rewards one accrues for the hereafter there are also benefits which are become manifest in the dunya also:

“Hadrat Abu Hurairah t says: In the house where the Quran is read, the household members increase, virtues and blessings multiply, angels descend upon the house and Shaytaan quits the home.” (Fazail-e-Quran)

 ON THE DAY OF QIYAMAH

 Mufti Ebrahim Desai (db) has written:

 “Mu’aadh al-Juhani narrates that Rasulullah r 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.’

 Rasulullah r further said, ‘What do you think will be given to the Hafiz (reciter) of the Quran himself?’” (Mishkaat Vol I.)

 Shaykh ul Hadith writes in Fazail-e-Quran that Hadhrat Umar t reports that Rasulullah r “Three persons are such as will have no fear of the horrors on the Day of Judgement, nor will they be required to render any account. They will stroll merrily on mounds of musk until the people are relieved of rendering their account. One is a person who learnt the Quran, merely seeking Allah’s U pleasure and therewith leads people in salaat in a manner that they are pleased with him…”

 He writes further: “The severity, the horror, the dread and the miseries of the Day of Judgement are so great that a true Muslim is neither mindful nor unaware of them. To be relieved of those worries in any way on the Day of Judgement is a favor that surpasses thousands of blessings and millions of pleasures. The narrator of this hadith, Hadrat Abdullah Ibn Umar t is quoted as saying: “If I had not heard this hadith from Rasulullah r once, once again, and once again (he repeated it seven times), I would never have reported it.”

 TOWARDS JANNAH

 Maulana Ashiq Ilahi (rah) writes that Hadrat Ali t reports that Rasulullah r 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).

 He continues: “One who knows the Holy Quran by heart will be allowed to intercede for ten persons with success. But one should mention that the intercessor must be practicing the laws mentioned in the Quran and fulfilling all the demands of the Book of Allah U. (What Happens After Death)

 It is narrated from Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Amr t that Rasulullah r said: Allah U will say to a Hafiz (upon his death and on the day of Qiyaamat) ‘Recite the Quran and (upon reciting each Verse) climb (a stage in Jannah) and continue reciting as you used to in the world as your abode in Jannah is upon the last verse you recite.’ (Mishkaat vol.1 pg.186; Me’raaj)

 Mufti Ebrahim Desai (db) commenting on this hadith states: “Obviously, the Hafiz will stop at the last verse of the Quran. The commentators of [this] Hadith have stated that the highest abode in Jannah is equivalent to the number of verses in the Qur’aan. Therefore, upon completing the recitation of the Quran, a Hafiz will be in highest abode of Jannah.”
