Hifz of the last harakah

Fatwaa ID: 266

‎اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللّٰـهِ وَبَرَكاتُهُ‎

When memorizing to become a hafiz do we have to remember the ends of every verse, as in Surah Fatiha

Do we have to remember “ar rahman ir raheem i maaliki youm id deen?

Or just ar Rahman ar raheeem. Maliki youm…?

Is our memorization complete if we did not memorize this?

جزاك الله خيرا

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is of utmost importance that one learns the harakah of the last letter of each verse. Without that, he would not be able to join the verses correctly. In such a case, the meaning could be distorted. A haafizh is one who has memorized the Qur’aan in its entirety, every letter and every harakah of it.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
