Why we should memorize Quran?
The holy prophet Muhammed ﷺ wanted us to read and memorize the Holy Qur’an and sought to make people not abandon the Holy Qur’an by mentioning the virtues of the Holy Qur’an many times in his sayings. He himself memorized Quran by heart and reassured people to memorize it as much as possible. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “Whoever recites the Quran and memorizes it will be with the noble and obedient scribes (angels).” In addition, Quran is the word of Allah, so one of the most important and essential reasons is that committing Quran to memory is one of the authentic and dependable ways to protect it from any kind of deformation.
