The Significance of Memorizing the Holy Quran
The Holy Quran is Almighty Allah’s word which was revealed upon Prophet Muhammad by the Revelation Honest,
the Angel Gabriel, ” Peace be upon Them”. The Creator has made the Holy Quran as the Miracle of miracles and
dared all mankind to try their best to come up with something that is even close to the Holy Book, but they are
absolutely unable to do it.
Besides, Almighty Allah has took it upon Himself to preserve the Holy Book from any fabrication and human-made
changes or modifications to the content of it.

houses, while those who are constantly reading have positive attitudes and behaviors in their lives. There are many
