Our position at our Institute is heavily influenced by the following hadith:
عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ ، قَال : كُنَّا صَدْرَ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةِ وَكَانَ الرَّجُلُ مِنْ خِيَارِ أَصْحَابِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَا مَعَهُ إِلا السُّورَةُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ أَوْ شِبْهُ ذَلِكَ ، وَكَانَ الْقُرْآنُ ثَقِيلا عَلَيْهِمْ وَرُزِقُوا الْعَمَلَ بِهِ ، وَإِنَّ آخِرَ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةِ يُخَفَّفُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقُرْآنُ حَتَّى يَقْرَأَهُ الصَّبِيُّ
وَالأَعْجَمِيُّ فَلا يَعْمَلُونَ بِه
This is what the imminent companion ibn ‘Umar (Allah be pleased with him) told u:
“We were the foremost of this Ummah and a man from among the best of companions of the Prophet would not have (memorised) of the Quran except one sura or so. The Quran was heavy (difficult) for them (to memorise) but they were granted the practice of the Quran. But the (memorisation) of the Quran will become easier for the last of this Ummah so much so that a child and a non-Arab will be able to read it but not practice it.”
This is further substantiated by the great scholar of the holy Quran, Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Allah be pleased with him) who was the best at reciting the holy Quran among the companions and he understood it better than them all, who said in a Ṣaḥiḥ Ḥadith:
يقول عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه : “كنا إذا تعلمنا من النبي عشر آيات من القرآن لم نتعلم العشر التي أنزلت بعدها حتى نتعلم
ما فيها، قيل لشريك: من العلم؟ قال: نعم ” وأخرجه الحاكم بنفس الإسناد وصححه
Once we learned from the Prophet (peace be upon him) only ten verses from the Quran we would not learn anymore
until we comprehended (and practiced) the ten that we have already learnt.”
