Revising the Qur’an

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The parable of one who knows the Qur’an by heart is as the parable of an owner of hobbled camel. If he remains vigilant, he will retain it; and if he neglects it, it will go away.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]


This Hadith repeats the subject of our previous Hadith (HaD-392). The person who memorizes the entire Qur’an or a portion of it, if he recites it regularly, he will retain it; otherwise, it will start slipping from his memory.

And Allah knows best!
