I really want to memorize the Quran. But I heard that forgetting it is a bigger sin. Is that true?

00:00:09--> 00:00:51

forgetting the Quran is something very serious. But remember that forgetting is a normal consequence of learning. And the fear of forgetting is something very natural that even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had, which is why Allah subhanaw taala promised him in the Quran. That's a no Priyanka falletta answer that we will make your recite and you will not forget. So take comfort in the promise of Allah. But remember that forgetting when does it happen? It happens when we don't recall what we have memorized what we have learned. So the best way of ensuring that you don't forget what you have learned is to continue to review it. And here we need to remember the purpose

of memorizing the Quran. The purpose of memorizing the Quran is not just to become a habit, it is not just to be able to quote the verses of the Quran off the top of your head no matter where you are. The purpose of memorizing the Quran is to recite it in Salah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the person who has memorized the Quran when he continues to review the Quran in the night and in the day, he remembers it, and if he stops to review it, then he will forget it. So the best way of making sure that we remember what we have memorized is to review it and the best time to review what you have memorized is in Salah.
