All praises and thanks be to Allah SWT. Abundant salutations be upon His beloved Messenger SAW.
People usually ask that when something bad happens to them, but this was the most blessed thing anyone could ask for.
I couldn’t accept the fact that Allah chose me. Why me? Why not my brother with the impressive memory?
“Rather, it [the Qur’an] is distinct verses [preserved] in the chests of those who have been given knowledge…” (Qur’an, 29:49)
Allah says they have been *given* knowledge. Which means He granted me this gift; so I should appreciate it.
It was not, however, handed to me on a silver platter. It was actually the most difficult thing I’ve done. I couldn’t even imagine completing and knowing the whole Qur’an at once. It seemed impossible.
But I went to hifdh school day in, day out. I begged Him to get me though each and every day. I implored Him for sincerity constantly.
“Then we caused to inherit the Book those We have chosen of Our servants…” (Qur’an, 35:32).
May Allah SWT accept from me and you, and make us true people of the Qur’an, so that on the day it is said to us “Recite and ascend, and recite as you used to recite in the [previous] world…” we will be able to do so effortlessly🤲🏻 Āmīn
