Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said,
“The likeness of the one who memorizes the Quran is that of the owner of a hobbled camel. If he tends to it regularly, he will keep it, but if he lets it go, he will lose it.”
Quran is the holy book of Allah (SWT) that He in his glory and mercy sent towards mankind through the last messenger, prophet Muhammad (SAW) over 1400 years ago. Though the holy Quran is filled with references with the people and prophets of the past, it is not meant to be a book of history; rather the Last Divine Scripture is a book of guidance on how to live this life and how to find success in the hereafter. The only reason why the Quran holds accounts of the past in it is so that people and especially Muslims today and for generations to come can take heed and not go down the same paths that previous people did and earned the displeasure of Allah (SWT) the Almighty. There are great virtues of learning the Quran and greater virtues for those who take the long hard task to memorize it, either through digital online Quran memorization schools that provide online Quran memorization course and classes or those who take the initiative to learn from an actual institute, that being a mosque. However, there appears to be a problem emerging in the Muslims world today where the people that have learned and memorized the Quran start to forget it soon after. Whether a person has learned from an institute or an online Quran memorization schools that provide online Quran memorization course and classes, it is imperative for them to constantly read it so that it can remain fresh in their memories. According to the hadith mentioned above, it is generally known that if a camel escapes it is very hard to get it back. This beautiful comparison shows Muslims that if a person who learned the Quran and forgot it due to negligence can find it very difficult to regain it, difficult, but not impossible.
