3 Year Old Nigeria Boy Memorizes The Whole Quran (Throwback)

Muhammed Shamsudden Aliyu hails from Zaria, Nigeria. He not only finished the whole Qur'an at the age of three but also memorized it, and can also speak both English and Arabic language.

Aliyu reportedly started schooling at the age of 1.5 immediately he stopped breastfeeding.

According to research, Aliyu memorized the whole Qur'an before attaining the age of three, shocking both adults and children. According to a deputy chief Iman of Tudun Jukun, Zaria, Nigeria, in the history of islam, there was no reported case of anyone who memorized the Holy Qur'an at that age. There were times where children of nine and above memorized the whole Qur'an, but not the age of three.

It was researched that Aliyu started attending Qur'an recitation competition from Zaria, Nigeria. After winning in his local community, he represented his school in a national competition. He finally proceeded to Saudi Arabia for an international contest in his age category, and he came second.

His father, Dr Aliyu Shamsudden loved it if his son continued both Qur'an related studies and Western education at the same time.
