Al-Qur'an which contains 30 juz with 144 letters and 6,666 verses is a very important life guide for Muslims. In fact, not infrequently, many Muslims are able to memorize the Qur'an from adults to children. One proof is that many great children in Indonesia participated in the Indonesian Hafizh program, which is one of the private television programs. This is certainly an achievement as well as their own pride.
Not only is it an achievement in itself, it seems that people who are able to memorize the Qur'an will get various kinds of virtues from Allah. These virtues certainly can be a motivation for Muslims to compete to understand and memorize the Qur'an. Then what virtues does God give to the memorizers of the Qur'an?
First, Allah turns out to align the memorizers of the Qur'an with the prophets. However, they did not get the revelation as experienced by the prophets. As mentioned in a hadith, “Whoever reads (memorizes) the Qur'an, then indeed he has equaled the prophetic degree, only there is no revelation for him (the memorizer). It is inappropriate for the reciters of the Qur'an to be with anyone he finds and does not fool the people who do ignorance (selectively in associating) while in him there is the word of God. “ (HR Judge)
Second, the memorizing the Qur'an will be considered as the family of God on earth. In a hadith Rasulullah SAW said, “Surely Allah has a family consisting of humans …” Then Anas said again, “Who are they, O Messenger of Allah?” His Majesty answered, “namely the Qu'ran expert (people who read or memorize The Qur'an and practice it). They are the family of God and those who are special to God. “ (Narrated by Ahmad)
Third, later in heaven will be given a higher degree. They will be placed in heaven based on how much memorization they have. In fact, it is also illustrated that even in heaven they will regret if the memorization of the Qur'an is not so perfect. So that the more perfect the memorization, the higher the degree that the memorizer of the Qur'an will receive in the future. In a hadith mentioned, “ Will be said to the Sahib of the Quran, 'Read and climb and tartilkan as you declare the Qur'an in the world your position at the end of the verse you read.'” (Narrated by Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)
Whereas in another hadith it is stated, “Recitation of the Qur'an will come on the Day of Judgment and the Qur'an says:” O my Lord, deliver him. Then the man was put on the crown of karamah (honor). Al Quran again asks: O my Lord, be pleased with him, then Allah bless him. And commanded that person, read and continue to climb (the degrees of heaven). And Allah adds from each verse that he reads additional favor and kindness. “ (Tirmidhi)
Fourth, the parents of the memorizer of the Qur'an will also get glory from Allah. The glory in the form of being given a crown in the form of light for the parents of the memorizer of the Qur'an. Then the parents will also get a robe of glory for giving birth and raising children who are pious and pious.
In a hadith mentioned that from Buraidah al-Aslami ra, he said that he heard the Prophet. said “Whoever reads the Qur'an, learns it and practices it, then is crowned with light on the Day of Judgment, the light is like the sun, both parents are clothed with two robes (glory), which have never been found in the world, both ask: why are we wearing this robe? Answered “Because you two ordered your children to study the Qur'an”. (Narrated by Al Hakim)
Such are the virtues that Allah will give to the memorizers of the Qur'an. Among them is the position equal to the prophet, being the family of God on earth, getting a high degree in heaven, and his parents also get glory from God.
