7 Year Old Palestinian Child Memorised the Whole Quran
Rashad Nimr Abu Ras is only 7 years old and has just completed the first grade in his elementary school in Gaza City. But there is something particularly special about this little child that made him an immediate celebrity in Gaza. He has fully memorized the Holy Quran.
His father told that he encouraged his son by rewarding him for every few pages of the Quran he memorized. Initially, this meant that Rashad acquired a new soccer ball and other toys. Ultimately, he became the proud owner of a brand new bike.
Eventually, however, Rashad became keen on learning the Quran on his own. He was encouraged by his parents, neighbors and teachers. At the event, attended by a large number of Gaza dignitaries and scholars, Rashad was certified as a Hafiz, receiving a special present and his own special copy of the Quran.
Recognition event of the 7 Year Old Child Memorised the Whole Quran
The recognition event, which was attended by a large number of Gaza dignitaries and scholars, was just the cherry on top of such an amazing achievement and really just shows us that age is but a number when it comes to success. For his efforts he received his own personalised Quran as well as other gifts from his loved ones.
Rashad’s sister holds a sign that reads: ‘Rashad is the most beautiful Hafiz’. Hafiz is the name given to a Muslim who memorizes the whole Quran.
