Sunnah 107: Memorize Qur’an

August 9, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) 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).” [Abu Dawud]

It may seem strange that today’s sunnah is to memorize Qur’an- memorizing even a little Qur’an sometimes needs several days not just one day. However, how many of us have put off memorizing some Qur’an simply because we ‘do not have time’? Today’s sunnah is not to memorize a whole page or even half. Rather we all know what we are capable of- even memorizing two verses will help us on the day of judgment. If we memorize two verses today, we can make a routine of memorizing two verses every week. We’ll be surprised at how much we do!
