A 5-year-old blind Burmese child in Jeddah has memorized the entire Qur’an by listening to the radio, the discovery that came as a surprise to the father.
Hussein Mohammad Tahir, visually impaired since birth, made the achievement three years after his father bought him a radio, knowing that his son would not be able to watch TV.
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 Quran’s teachings.
“I didn’t even imagine that this child would benefit from the radio by memorizing the Quran,” 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 Quran to confirm that the child had completely memorized the holy Quran.
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
The Quran is a revelation from God, the creator of the worlds, so He is the original author.
There is only one Qur’an which is in Arabic and many translations of the Qur’an in several languages.
There could be multiple translations by different authors in the same language such as English.
The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the archangel Gabriel who used to make the Prophet memorize the Quran and made him revise it every year in the month of Ramadan, the fasting month.
