The Status and Responsibilities of a Hafidh of the Qur’aan


The Qur’aan-e-Majeed which came down from the heavens via Jibra’eel AS, was revealed to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam as a source of mercy and guidance by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, for all mankind … This is no ordinary book! These weighty and powerful words contain lessons, advices, guidelines and an invitation from Allah towards Allah … It is cure to all doubts, spiritual diseases and physical ailments, for those who ponder and bring into practice the teachings of the Qur’aan.

Whoever loves the Qur’aan-e-Majeed, in reality it is because of the love he has for Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … 

Those who are carrying the Qur’aan-e-Majeed within their hearts are chosen and selected through the Grace and Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala to imbibe these words into their chests … A person may acquire the treasures of the world, but when the Qur’aan-e-Majeed is committed to memory and infiltrates into the heart of a Hafidh, it is a far greater investment.

A Hafidh who abides by the laws and injunctions of the Qur’aan-e-Majeed and does not abandon or forsake the Qur’aan, nor does he exceed the limits, acquires a high status in the eyes of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. This Kalamullah (Word of Allah) is one of the best things a person can acquire and gather for his Hereafter …


“Whoever reads the Quran and memorises it, while he regards what it makes lawful as lawful and its unlawful as forbidden (i.e. he practises according to it), Allah Ta’ala will admit him into Jannah and will accept his intercession on behalf of ten such persons of his family who were doomed to the fire of Jahannum” (Tirmidhi)
