May God bless him and grant him peace – He used to memorize the Holy Quran, present it to Gabriel – upon him be peace – every year, and review it with the Companions – may God be pleased with them -. Therefore, memorizing the Holy Quran is considered following the guidance of the Messenger of God – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him.
  • Avoiding the torment of fire: As memorizing the Holy Quran in the chest is a reason for salvation from the torment of Hell. When it was reported on the authority of Isma bin Malik Al-Khatmami – may God be pleased with him – on the authority of the Messenger of God – may God bless him and grant him peace – that he said: (If the Qur’an were collected in a scarf, God would not burn it with fire.

  • Seeking knowledge: Memorizing the Holy Quran is an essential stage of great importance in seeking legal knowledge. As the evidence and legal rulings are derived from his verses; Scientists used to start memorizing the Holy Quran from childhood, complete its memorization completely before puberty, and then gradually seek the forensic sciences, as Imam al-Nawawi – may God have mercy on him – mentioned in his book (Muqaddimah al-Majmoo ‘al-Muhdhdhab explained) that memorizing the Holy Quran is the most important science, and the first thing that begins with it. ; The predecessors – may God have mercy on them – did not teach jurisprudence and hadith except for those who memorized the Noble Qur’an. It was reported from Sheikh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah – may God have mercy on him – that he said in the major fatwas: “As for the request to memorize the Qur’an, it takes precedence over many of what people call knowledge, and it is either invalid. Or is of little use, and it is also provided in learning the right of those who want to learn the science of religion from its origins and branches because the project has the right in such times to start memorizing the Qur’an, for it is the origin of the religious sciences.
  • Other benefits: Among the benefits of memorizing the Holy Quran in the breasts are: drawing close to God Almighty, gaining his pleasure, winning paradise, arming his revelations in the face of Satan, controlling the whims of the soul, in addition to straightening the tongue, achieving eloquence in the Arabic language, and memorizing the Holy Qur’an Distortion and loss, and facilitating the recitation of his verses in every place and time, such as reading the Qur’an while working and earning money.

The status of the Holy Quran

 (إِنَّ هـذَا القُرآنَ يَهدي لِلَّتي هِيَ أَقوَمُ وَيُبَشِّرُ المُؤمِنينَ الَّذينَ يَعمَلونَ الصّالِحاتِ أَنَّ لَهُم أَجرًا كَبيرًا)

Verily this Qur’an doth guide to that which is most right (or stable), and giveth the Glad Tidings to the Believers who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a magnificent reward;

God Almighty sent down the Holy Quran to the heart of His Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace. To be mercy and guidance for people; As the Holy Qur’an included the Islamic Sharia, which is a comprehensive and comprehensive approach to life that organizes the lives of people. It is worth noting that God Almighty established the most powerful argument for all people with the Holy Qur’an. He made it an eternal miracle, with which he supported his Messenger Muhammad – may God bless him and grant him peace – and God Almighty challenged the scholars to come up with something like him. For his saying -the Almighty-: (،[Say: “If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support]

And which proved their impotence, it is not the words of human beings, but rather the words of God Almighty with which he sealed the heavenly books.
