England counts a little memorizer of the Qur’an at the age of 7: yes, it’s a girl

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most bountiful


Maariya, who is 7 years old from England has completed memorising the entire Qur’an by spending 5 hours a day and just in 2 years, Allahu Akbar!

This lovely girl started at the age of 5 when she memorised Surah Yasin in a charity challenge in order to raise money for Syria.

Her mother noticed that she was a fast-learner and wanted Maariya to become a hafidhah. To her dissapointment, there were no complete hifdh classes available so she decided to guide her daughter through her hifdh journey herself.

She told IlmFeed that it wasn’t easy and required a lot of patience from both herself and her daughter.

“I was overwhelmed and extremely emotional to think Allaah gave me the patience to see this through. It wasn’t easy!”

They had to follow a strict timetable where Maariya would study 5 hours a day, a session before school where she would learn something new, a session after school where she would read what she had learnt and another session after dinner for revision.

In order to motivate Maariya, her mother told her she could pick any prize she wanted every time she completed a portion of the Qur’an. She would often choose simple prizes such as a cuddly toy, a coloring book or a meal at a restaurant.

Their efforts paid off when in just 2 years when at the age of 7, Maariya completed memorising the entire Qur’an. A hifdh completion ceremony was held to celebrate her achievement.

Maariya’s mother said that her daughter’s achievements has made her “the proudest mother that walks this Earth” and that she prays that she “always lives by what she has learnt.”

We pray that Allah who is the Most Generous, reward her, her parents and teachers in this world and hereafter. We pray that Allah protect little Maariya from any harm in this life and give her success in both lives.
