Koran by Heart.

 assalamualaikum :)

here's a great video, created by non-Muslim (if i'm not mistaken) about Muslims.

here's the description ;
There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, many of whom grapple with the role religion should play in their lives, and the lives of their children. Each year during Ramadan, more than a hundred of the best young students from more than 70 countries across the Islamic world converge on Cairo for Egyptʼs International Holy Koran Competition, one of the Islamic worldʼs most prestigious contests. Some of the competitors are as young as seven, and several have memorized the entire 600-page Koran without actually speaking Arabic.
click play, and you'll be amazed.

 Below I provide you with a so-called summary, but just for the first part.


"My parents told me to learn the Koran before anything else
Every Muslim should learn Koran. I like the way the letters look. The way it's written and how my teacher teaches it." 
Djamil , 10 years old
Senegal. West Africa

"You're going to represent Senegal and all of Africa at the Koran competition in Cairo. You'll be all by yourself. But you mustn't be scared. La takaf, wa la tahzan.Arab or not, Egyptian, Kuwait, whatever, everyone memorizes the same Koran. And you know the Koran. You've studied it, memorized it"
Djamil's teacher

"The Koran is the only book that can be completely memorized. It's a miracle - children can memorize it. Even without understanding the meaning. The irresponsible actions you see in some Muslims, are because they are estranged from the Koran, or don't understand the Koran. So stealing, sex outside the marriage, intoxication, injustice, aggression, and terrorism, these are not allowed. The Koran is not just a book of worship for us, it is a guide for life. 
How do I meet my brother ? It's in the Koran. 
How do i interact with you ? It's in the Koran.
How do I set a meeting ? It's in the Koran.
How do I apologize for a mistake ? It's in the Koran.
How to be tolerant ? It's in the Koran."
Dr. Salem Abdel-Galil, Deputy Minister,
Ministry Of Religious Affairs Cairo, Egypt.
