Four illiterate Saudi women memorize the entire Quran simply by listening


Makkah – Breaking the barriers and leaping beyond the norms, four illiterate Saudi women between the ages of 46 and 74 memorized the complete Quran simply by listening to female teachers daily.

According to Sabq News, the women belonging to the western town of Laith have spent several hours daily for six years listening to the female teachers reading verses from the Quran.

Eventually, they memorized “every single word of the miraculous book”, said center’s director, Sheikh Ibrahim al-Barakati.

Quran has 114 chapters and more than 6000 verses, originally known as Surahs and Ayats respectively.

Quran is believed to be the verbatim word of God—revealed 1400 years ago to the final Messenger of God – Prophet Mohammed in Makkah.

Quran remains constant throughout the globe without a minute change in its wordings. So, the challenge to reproduce a book like Quran remains unattended till date.
