No fewer than 130 students of Markaz AbdulLateef Centre for Quranic Memorisation and Arabic Studies have memorised the complete Qur’an in Lagos.

Speaking at the graduation in Lagos, the founder, Dr AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef, said the students were admitted into the centre after completing their primary education and camped in a boarding for three years within which they memorized the complete Qur’an.

“When they finish the Memorisation of the Qur’an and become very fluent in speaking Arabic as a language, which is one of the three major languages in the world, they would have learnt Islamic tenets at a young age to live a decent life,” he said.

Dr AbdulLateef, a former Commissioner for Home Affairs in Lagos State said, “We want people to eschew violence, imbibe righteousness, decency, charity and do away with man’s inhumanity to man and give the right interpretation to the verses of the Qur’an and ensure that these young ones commit the Qur’an to memory at this age when they aren’t distracted about the happenings in the society.”

The National Missioner of Ansar-ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Sheikh AbdurRahman Ahmad, stressed the benefit of memorizing the Qur’an by children, saying: “The discipline that goes into the memorisation of the Qur’an will go a long way in ensuring the entrenchment of discipline in their lives.”
