Reason of Errors, Changing the Meaning, Memorizing Holy Quran, Student of University of Islam Science Malaysia


This study aims to identify the reasons behind committing errors that change the meaning of the Holy Quran. Various studies revealed that students committed errors that led to changing the intended meaning of holy verse while reciting the Quran orally. Based on this problem, the current study investigates this issue using the descriptive approach. Three hundred fifty-seven questionnaire forms were distributed among students from six colleges out of twelve in the University Sciences Islam Malaysia who have the subject of memorizing the Holy Quran. The questionnaire was divided into four sections. The first three sections included information about students’ levels in memorizing and reciting the Holy Quran in Arabic. At the same time, the fourth section is about the reasons for changing the Holy Quran meaning. SPSS was utilized to analyze the data. The results showed that the students did not appropriately memorize the verses. Furthermore, the students do not master the Arabic alphabetic letters exits.  The results indicated that students do not understand Arabic Language adequately. This issue represents the main reason for changing the meaning during the reciting of the Holy Quran. Thus, the study recommends making a video record to treat such causes.
