Children should memorize the Qur’an/Virtues of Hifz e Quran
Memorizing the Holy Qur’an creates strength in the child’s intellectual skills.
The child and it’s parents, moreover the whole lineage is graced by honour and diginity.
Eternal salvation from poorness and hunger gained through the removing the shortness of sustenance. (content of a Hadith)
Parents will be given a crown on the Day of Judgement, whichs light will be more than that of the sun.
Through the blessings of memorizing the Qur’an one is protected from going astray and wrong beliefs.
The whole life will become ‘Ibaadah when one recites in every situation some or other verses, because one has memorized the Holy Qur’an.
Through the blessings of the Holy Qur’an one is to a large extent protected from a life of game and play [Lahw wa La'ab].
By the intercession of a Hafiz 10 persons from his family are granted salvation. (provided that they are Muslims)
Allah Ta’ala appoints angels for the protection of a Hafiz-e-Qur’an.
A Hafiz will be granted the highest place of Jannah which he likes for himself.
Let your children by all means memorize the Holy Qur’an. A Hafiz child easily progresses in worldly education and the exams of the fifth grade become easy, too.
