Nahed, who is 68 years old, says she started learning the Quran by taking classes at the city’s Dar-ul-Huda Institute.
She says at first she learned a few verses by heart every day but after some time sped up the pace of memorization.
Nahed says memorizing the Quran has changed her life for the better and it is now easier for her to tolerate life’s difficulties and challenges.
She says she is going to continue on the Quranic path by learning Tafseer (Quran interpretation).
The Holy Quran is the only religious Scripture that is memorized by its followers.
Innumerable persons in every Muslim community have memorized the Quran since the first day it was revealed.
The Quran has 30 Juzes (parts), 114 Surahs (chapters) and 6,236 verses.
