Top 3 Excuses for Not Memorising the Qur’an!

Memorising the Qur’an is the single most blessed activity. The best thing a Muslim can accomplish in life is to memorise the Book of Allah.

Apart from reading, understanding, reflecting, living by its teachings and implementing its injunctions, those of us who have not yet intended to do the hifz of the Qur’an must take the initiative as early as possible lest death overtakes us!

Why can’t we make memorising the Qur’an an objective of our life?

Most of the times I have noticed that Muslims give these three common reasons for not memorising the Qur’an. 

Excuse # 1 I am too old to memorise the Qur’an

Excuse # 2 I don’t have time to memorise the Qur’an

Excuse # 3 It is so hard to memorise the Qur’an

Every Muslim who has not yet completed the memorisation of the Qur’an, including me, must ask this question to oneself: Do I have any special excuse? 

Honestly telling, if one calmly and sincerely reflects over this matter, then many of us will arrive at this conclusion:

‘I don’t have any reason for not memorising the Qur’an’


‘I think I am just existing in this world!’

  1. Assalaamu ‘Alaikum, I want to memorize Qur’an too. I don’t have a solid reason or excuse like many for not doing it. Maybe somewhere in my heart I’m scared too that I wont be able to. May Allah help us all, Aameen
