Meanwhile, Dr. A. Husnul Hakim, MA explains the importance of memorizing the Quran, “It is important for anyone, especially Muslims to memorize the Qur’an. Because as the Prophet said. that the memorizing of the Qur’an, including the family of Allah [al-Hakim], is most entitled to his intercessory [Muslim narration], the mild worship but much reward [Thabrani], most deserving to be a prayer imam [Thabrani], even as a khatib of Jumu’ah prayer [Muslim] and so forth,” said Husnul
In line with Husnul, Deden also explained the importance of memorizing the Qur’an to the participants. “Memorizing the Qur’an, it will give intercession to the memorizers. Many people are experts on interpretation, but do not memorize the Qur’an. The commentator is capable of corrupting one’s thinking, but the memorizers of the Qur’an always keep their purity,” said Deden (usa)
