or anytime really!!
Our chemistrystarted from the second that I met her.
The elderly lady in the picture is Umm as-Sa’ad. She was born 1925 and memorised the Quran at the age of 15. By the age of 25 she had the shortest chains of recitation (Ijzazh) to the Prophet sala Allahu Alihi wasSalam in the 10 modes of recitation.
She is a PIVOTAL point in Quranic instruction in Egypt and Alexandria in particular. From AbdulBasit abdulSamad to Mishary al-Afaasi…all have recited the Quran upon her seeking approval to teach and recite.Allah have mercy on her, she recently past away at close to 90 years old. May Allah reward her for her service to the Quran.
Since 1950 she has taught and licensed in memorization of the quran over 100,000 students.She married one of her students. She was not blessed with any children through her nearly 50 years of marriage. She would say, “Allah barred me from children andtheir responsibility, so that I can teach his Word to the children of others.”
She also said:
“I feel that my memorization of the Quran is as complete has my knowledge of my own name. I cannot imagine that I can forget a single letter from it or even make a single mistake in its reading from memory. I do not know anything else in life like I do the Quran and its modes of recitation. I did not master any other Science or attend lectures or commit anything to memory except the Noble Quran, the texts related to its modes of recitation.”
She is in my prayers. Ya Allah raise her a level in Jannah for every ayat she recites!(via Yahya Ibrahim)
Well here you go for all those that are looking for “missing” Female Scholars that don’t exist.
This literally made me tear.
She didn’t just memorise the entire book, she memorised it in ten different styles of recitation. That’s like memorising 9 more books on top of it.
Do you know how hard that is?!!!? Actually think about how hard that is for a moment. Look at the people she taught! al Afasy, Abdul basit, this is a legend. This woman is a legend.
