Question: “Is it obligatory for the student of knowledge to memorise the Noble Qurʾān?”
Response: “Memorisation of the Qurʾan is from the communal matters which if some undertake the rest are exempt from it. Thus it is not obligatory upon each individual Muslim to memorise the Qurʾān due to the absence of evidence of that.”
