An organization called, The South African National Quraan Council, is organizing a Quran ‘memorization competition’. Are such competitions permissible?


“…We have sent to you the Rasool from amongst you to recite to you Our Aayaat (of the Qur’aan), and to purify you, and to teach you the Kitaab (the Qur’aan) and Hikmah (the Sunnah), and to teach you what you knew not.”

(Baqarah, Aayat 151)

The Maqsood (the divinely ordained objective) of the Qur’aan Majeed is to provide, Ta’leem and Tazkiyah (teachings of the Shariah and purification of the nafs). There is absolutely no other purpose. The attainment of this Maqsood is by means of ta’leem, tilaawat and tazkiyah.

This divinely ordained Objective cannot be achieved by means of the Satanism of ‘competitions’. The Qur’aan Majeed is a Hidaayat for those who employ it in the manner shown to us by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah. Tilaawat of the Qur’aan Majeed is an Ibaadat of the highest merit while these competitions related to it are evil inspirations of Iblees described in the Qur’aan Majeed as ‘zukhrufuk qawl’- satanically adorned words and ideas whispered into the brains of miscreants by shaitaan.

The Qur’aan competition is a shaitaani, deceptive gimmick. These haraam shaitaani competitions eliminate the reverence, dignity and holiness of the Qur’aan Majeed from the hearts of the morons who participate in these acts of Satanism. It is haraam to participate in this mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed. This type of haraam mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed is among the Signs of Qiyaamah. The Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Verily this nation of mine took the Qur’aan as an object for buffeting.”

This will be the complaint of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyaamah. Competitions of this nature make the Qur’aan Majeed into a toy for stupid and haraam entertainment. The Objective of the Qur’aan Majeed is the guidance of mankind. It is a capital crime to use and misuse the Qur’aan Majeed for merrymaking and stupid competitions where haraam prizes akin to gambling, will be doled out. Such mockeries of the Qur’aan Majeed are among the Signs of Qiyaamah.

Shaitaan has urinated the idea of Qur’aan competitions into the brains of the organizers of this haraam mockery. Since Muslims all over the world are making a mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed in various shaitaani ways, Allah Ta’ala, in order to punish us, causes defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed at the hands of kuffaar. Since Muslims themselves defile and desanctify the Qur’aan Majeed, in different ways – one way being these satanic competitions – Allah Ta’ala permits the kuffaar to defile the Qur’aan Majeed in various ways, e.g. burning the Qur’aan Majeed.

While defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed and of the Musaajid by kuffaar has no effect for Allah Ta’ala, it is a form of punishment for Muslims who are grieved by such defilement. During its history, Allah Ta’ala had handed Musjidul Aqsa six times to the kuffaar for defilement and pollution to punish Muslims. The same is happening today. Musjidul Aqsa has been handed to the Yahood for defilement, and the Kuffaar are allowed by Allah Azza Wa Jal to burn and defile the Qur’aan.

All of this is merely a reflection of the villainy, treachery, fisq and fujoor of Muslims. The kuffaar are not blameworthy. Muslims are the vile and treacherous criminals who are the cause of such defilement at the hands of the kuffaar. Qur’aan competitions are one form of Qur’aanic defilement.

It is haraam to participate in any way whatever in the stupid ‘memorization’ competition of this miscreant body called SANQC. The Opening verse of Surah Baqarah states:

“This Kitaab (the Qur’aan), there is no doubt in it, is a guide for the Muttaqeen.”

Hidaayat is the Maqsood (Objective) for the revelation of the Qur’aan. It is pure shaitaaniyat and treachery to use the Qur’aan Majeed as a toy and football for merrymaking and enjoyment at the behest of shaitaan and the nafs.

The so-called ‘al-falaah college’ where the Qur’aan Majeed will be subjected to shaitaani mockery is a college of Iblees. The Deen is manipulated for achieving corrupt nafsaani objectives.
