Memorizing the Quran
Everyone who memorizes something from Quran and continuously listens to it feels a significant change in his or her life. The memorization of the Quran affects physical health as well. It has been proven through experience and observation that memorizing the Quran improves the immune system of a person and helps prevent diseases. Listed below are some of the amazing benefits of memorizing the Quran:
1. Clarity of mind.
2. Memory strength.
3. Reassurance and psychological stability.
4. Joy and happiness.
5. Eliminating fear, sadness, and anxiety.

Therefore, Allah says, “Rather, the Qur’an is distinct verses [preserved] within the breasts of those who have been given knowledge. And none reject Our verses except the wrongdoers.” [Al-Ankabut: 49]

Influence of Memorization of the Quran
The best thing man can do is to read the Quran, apply and implement what Allah has commanded, and to move away from what He forbids. Many studies show that the Quran has a significant impact on human personality.
Of course, books written by humans have an impact, but when the discussion is about Allah’s book who created man, who knows what he is and knows what he is doing, it is natural that in this excellent book, we find all the information that man needs in his life. Quran is the light that heals and guides.
Allah says: “Falsehood cannot approach it from before it or from behind it; [it is] a revelation from a [Lord who is] Wise and Praiseworthy.”[Fussilat: 42]
Any book can make a difference in life, but without doubt, the recitation and listening to the verses of Quran recreates the character of man, since the Quran contains the rules and the solid foundations for the building of personality.
