QUESTION:

What is the religious merit of memorizing suras of the qur'an?  how does
it compare to other actions such as namaz, etc?


ANSWER:

Memorizing the Holy Quran is a very commendable act. However, one must
realise that nothing is comparable with Namaz - for it is the absolute
basic one must do before any other acts however good they may be. If
prayers (Namaz) is not accepted, then no other deed, however many and good
they may be, is accepted.

Memorization (Hifz) of the Holy Quran is indeed a virtue much sought after.
The rewards are also great. The Holy Prophet(SAW) has said that the number
of levels in Jannah will be equal to the number of verses in the Holy
Quran. For every verse we will be able to recite, we shall be elevated a
level.

Wa Minallaahit Tawfiq,
