For Muslims, the Qurʾān is not a written tradition as much as it is an oral tradition. It may not be the most published or bestselling book in the world yet it has a unique honour and distinction of being the most widely memorised and read book, not only today but throughout history. Miraculously, it has been preserved from heart to heart. Allāh has vowed to preserve its words, method of recitation, meaning and messages.
Part of the preservation of the Qurʾān and undoubtedly, part of its miracle is the memorisation of the Qurʾān by millions of children throughout the world. Along with its memorisation, there are great blessings in learning its meanings and acting upon its teachings. In fact, one who endeavours to do this is not only preserving the Qurʾān and its meaning but he is also considered the best of people as the Prophet ﷺ said, ‘The best amongst you is one who learns the Qurʾān and teaches it’. [Bukhārī]
