Children Memorising the Qur’an

Hifdh al Quran is a noble act and if a child finishes it before puberty then that’s excellent, but if they hit puberty, they’re going to be held accountable for everything they memorise.

It’s better to have a child who has excellent manners and character, and memorising slowly with love of the deen, than someone who spends every living second memorising the Qur’an and spends no time on their manners and character.

This is not belittling memorising the Qur’an, but it’s been seen many times that a student lies and backbites and so on as he’s not understood the true value of a haafidh. This is a huge problem!


The Envier

An envier flatters you face to face, backbites when you are not there and rejoices when a calamity befalls you! So if you have envy in your heart for anyone, repent!

There is no-one that doesn’t feel envious, as mentioned by a scholar of the past, but the clever one is the one who conceals it, repents, speaks good of the person and makes du’a for them!
