A five year old Blind Boy named Hussein Mohammd Tahir has memorized the Entire Holy Qur’an, by listening to the Radio.
He is visually impaired since birth. He memorized the Holy Qur’an within a span of Only three years. He currently lives in Jeddah with his parents.
It all started with the arrival of a radio at home. As Hussein couldn’t watch videos on television, his father Mohammd Tahir decided to bring a radio for him.
The father, Mohammad Tahir, said he fixed the frequency on a station, which broadcasts the Qur’an 24/7 so that his son can develop the habit of listening to Qur’an’s teachings.
“I didn’t even imagine that this child would benefit from the radio by memorizing the Qur’an,” he said
For three years, Tahir did not realize Hussein was memorizing the holy book through the radio.
After they moved from Jeddah to Madinah, the child asked his father to take him to the Prophet’s Mosque.
The condition for taking him there, said the father, was to recite a few verses from Surah Al-Baqarah.
The child recited the entire surah, which surprised the father to no end.
Mohammad Tahir said he took the child to several teachers and people who had memorized the Qur’an to confirm that the child had completely memorized the holy Qur’an. They confirmed Hussein’s achievement, and said he only needs some lessons in recitation.
Hussein was admitted to a Qur’an memorization circle of visually impaired children in the Prophet’s Mosque.
“This makes me forget all the hardships he endured over the years, having been born blind and with some disability in a hand,” said a thankful Tahir.
Indeed with every hardships, comes an ease. Allah has taken the power of vision for Hussein and blessed him with special skills of listening and strong memory. He memorized the Qur’an in only three years. Memorization is not an easy task. Even physically fit people aren’t able to memorize the Holy Qur’an easily. It requires strong desire,patience, hardwork and consistency.
Upon reflecting on the hardships faced by a Hafidh while Memorizing the Holy Qur’an, we can say that it’s a miracle of Allah that a visually impaired child Hussein Mohammd Tahir memorized the Holy Qur’an.
Virtues of the Holy Qur’an
The Holy Qur’an is the LAST BOOK FROM THE CREATOR, and the ONLY REVEALED BOOK STILL IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM. All the other Books revealed from the Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala have being distorted over time by the order of kings, emperors, leaders and whoever did not approve of what was revealed.
“Verily, We, it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (this Qur’an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption.) (Surah Al-Hijr 15: 9)
The Qur’an is the Book of Allah revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), the Last Prophet of Allah. It is a confirmation and completion of the earlier Books of Allah revealed to other Prophets before him.
“It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur’an) to you (O Muhammad) with truth, confirming what came before it, and He sent down Taurat (Torah) and Injil (Gospel) (Surah Al-Imran 3: 3)
“O Mankind! Verily there has come to you a convincing proof (Prophet Muhammad) from your Lord, and We sent down to you a Manifest Light (this Qur’an) (Surah An-Nisa’ 4: 174)
It was preserved in the hearts of Muslims during the time of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and it is still preserved in the hearts of millions, and millions of Muslims today.
