Daily Quran classes will help produce more Hafiz

LUMUT – The Quran memorisation classes should be conducted on a daily basis to produce more hafiz (persons who memorises the Quran).

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri said the daily tahfiz classes could also provide opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of the Quran


“I have proposed that the Quran memorisation classes be diversified to get more participation.

“For example, students can try to memorise a chapter of the Quran at any one time and they may take between two and three years to completely memorise the whole chapters as what tahfiz students do,” he told reporters here today.

Zulkifli said such classes had been implemented in Arab countries and in some areas in the country, in an effort to maximise the community’s access to learning and memorising the Quran.

“Hopefully, this method can be expanded to schools and mosques in the country to provide added value to those who do not have the chance to enrol in tahfiz centres,” he added.
