The Story of Hifdzil Quran in Indonesia

We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption). The Qur'an was revealed as a holy book for Muslims. The contents of the verses are instructions and guidelines for humans.

Muslims have a duty to preserve and preserve their sanctity in order to preserve the authenticity of the verses of the Qur’an.

Allah says:

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ [١٥:٩]

We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption). 

The PROPHITE Mohamed peace be upon him. He said: Whoever reads a letter from the book of Allah (the Qur'an), then he gets a virtue. One virtue is multiplied 10 times. I'm not saying that Alif Lām Mīm is one letter, but that alif is one letter, lām is one letter, and mīm is one letter.” (Hadist of Al-Tirmidhi)

Definitions of Quran

Various definitions have been put forward by scholars regarding the meaning of the Qur'an. Scholars of the principles of jurisprudence define the Qur’an as: “The miraculous word of God that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in the Mutawatir, and reading it is worship.” (Zarkouni)

There are many methods that Muslims use in preserving and preserving the authenticity of the verses of the Qur’an, and one of these methods is memorizing the Qur’an.

In the early period of Islam, every Prophet Muhammad prayed. The Prophet received the revelation, so the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, did it to his companions and commanded that it be written down and memorized.

Friends were very happy to receive the order. They wrote and memorized the voice of revelation. The tradition of writing and memorizing the Qur'an continued by the followers and then the Muslims.

Indonesia is a country with a majority Muslim population. The tradition of conservation has long been carried out in different regions of the archipelago.

Quran memorization efforts were initially carried out by scholars who studied in the Middle East through their teachers. However, in later developments, the tendency to memorize the Qur'an began to arouse great interest for the Indonesian people.

To meet this desire, Middle Eastern graduates, especially from Hejaz (Mecca), established Quran memorization institutions by establishing private Islamic boarding memorization schools, or conducting Quran memorization education in existing Islamic boarding schools.

Initially, institutions preserving the Qur'an were still limited in some areas. However, after the inclusion of the Qur'an memorization branch of the Talawatl Mushaf (MTQ) in 1981, this model institution was developed in various regions in Indonesia.

This development certainly cannot be separated from the participation of scholars who memorized the Qur'an and who tried to spread and strengthen the teaching of Qur'an memorization. This has been going on until now.
