Memorisation of Qur’an is from the special characteristics of this Ummah

 

Hifdh al-Qur’aan is from the special characteristics of the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam).

 

Ibn al-Jazari (rahimahullaah) said:

“The transmission of Qur’an by relying upon  memorization  (off by heart) and not upon script in the mus-haf and in books, is from the most noble of characteristics given to this Ummah by Allaah Ta’aala.”

 

 

He also said,

“Allaah ta’aala has informed us that the Qur’an does not need to be confined – in preserving it – to a page that can be washed with water.

 

Instead it is read in all states as has been narrated in the description of this Ummah “Their scriptures are in their hearts” – and this is different to the people of the Book who do not memorise it except in (referring to) the Books, they do not read it except by looking at it and it is never off by heart.
