"And We (Allah) have made the Holy Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will receive admonition."(The Quran, 54:17)

One of the means through which Allah has assured the protection of the Holy Quran is the fact that He made the memorization of His Book an easy task for the believers. In fact, the Holy Quran is the only religious Scripture that is memorized by its followers. Innumerable persons in every Muslim community have memorized the whole Quran since the first day it was revealed. Children as young as five years old and men and women as old as 50 years memorize the whole Quran as part of their love and devotion to the Book of Allah. The one who memorizes the whole Quran is known as a Hafiz. It is a miracle that the Hafiz not only memorizes the entire text of the Holy Quran, but also the punctuation and diatrical marks of each and every word and verse of the Quran. 

What is more amazing is that Muslims of different languages are able to memorize the whole Quran perfectly even though they do not speak Arabic. The Quran is not a small book containing few verses. Rather, it is a book containing over 6,000 verses! It is a miracle of the Quran that a Hafiz is able to memorize all of these verses in order.
