It is a great honour that Allah Ta’ala bestows upon His chosen servants to memorise the Qur’an and the virtues of such a blessing are numerous. Every believer desires for their child, nieces and nephews or relatives memorise the entire Qur’an and this is a beautiful thing in itself, for having good intentions is a sign of Imaan (faith) and without a doubt a person is rewarded by Allah Ta’ala for their good intentions.
Memorising the Quran is not only a immense blessing from Allah Ta’ala, but it is also a responsibility, for once you have memorised the Qur’an you must maintain it and ask Allah Ta’ala to protect it; once you become a Hafiz, you must revise daily for the rest of your life in order that the Quran becomes deeply rooted within your heart and soul.
The Quran is preserved by Allah Ta’ala Himself, for He has said:
إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ
Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.
What a honour, that the Lord of the Heavens and Earth, allows the believer to memorise His words in their hearts and thereby they becomes the trustees of the Qur’an! SubhanAllah.
There is much that can be said but this is sufficient for the one who loves Allah Ta’ala and His Beloved Prophet ﷺ. If you would like to read more on the virtues of the Quran and memorising it, please click Quran>Virtues of the Qur’an.
As the Qur’an is a great responsibility and immense blessing, it is of the utmost importance that a student firstly loves the Qur’an and understands its importance. Parents/Guardians should encourage their children to memorise it by teaching them of the blessings and virtues of the Qur’an and not forcing it upon them, for only when the seeds of love for the Qur’an are planted into the heart, will they bear fruits. We ask Allah Ta’ala for His Love, the Love of His Beloved Prophet ﷺ, the Qur’an and all that He loves. And we ask Him for protection from every evil and calamity, with such a protection that grants us success in this world and the next. And success is with Allah alone. Ameen al Fatiha.
3 Year Course
Students for Quran Hifdh/Hifz studies are only taken on after a test and interview with the student. Students will first be tested on their recitation of the Quran, students with inadequate recitation will not be taken on and instead placed in the Tajweed class to correct their mistakes, once this has been perfected we will then allow such a student to start Hifdh.
Students are expected to complete their Quran Hifz within 3 years, we also have a 5 year course available for those who find it difficult.
Quran Hifz students must be serious and want to do the memorisation, they must be mature and know the gravity of the task they are about to undertake, memorisation of the Quran is a Divine Gift that Allah Ta’ala blessed only His chosen servants for. Memorisation is the first part, the journey does not finish once you have completed Hifz but rather the memorisation was merely the beginning. A hafiz must dedicate his life to the Quran by daily revision, for more information on Hifz see our blog post on this.
Students will be doing Manzil, Sabqi and Sabaq daily. This will be explained when you start.
