Muhaidi Mustaffa Al Hafiz, Muhammad Fathi Yusof, Mohd AI’Ikhsan Ghazali, Siti Salwa Md. Sawari


The position of those who memorize the Quran is special beside Allah SWT. Many prominent scholars are among those who are mastering the Quran and the Sunnah. Indeed, Muslims are the people who are responsible for maintaining the sanctity of the Quran. Therefore, this paper aims to give understanding on the history of education of Quranic memorization that has been implemented from the time of the Prophet until this contemporary era spesifically in Malaysia. The process of memorizing the Quran has started since the first revelation revealed to Prophet Muhammad SAW, until he was called as "Sayyid al-Huffaz" and "Awwal Jumma" or the first man to memorize the Quran. This has facilitated many of his companions to follow his steps in memorizing the Quran. This process continues during the time of the tabi’ tabiin until now with the establishment of various institutions of tahfiz Quran.
