In an Al-Quran memorization competition, a young contestant cried during his recitation. In the beginning he recited the verses fluently and at the final verse, he stopped and wept. Not because he could not remember the last bit of the verse.
One of the judges read the beginning of Surah Jumuah 62 verse 5. And the young boy smoothly picked up from there and continued reciting some more verses. And when he reached at the last part of verse 8, he stopped. Actually before stopping, he tried to control his emotions. Then he burst into tears when he recited the part that said:
إِلَى عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
“…then you will be returned to The Knower of the unseen and the witnessed”.
He cried long enough to make one of the judges get teary eyes too. Then, after gathering his emotions, he finished the verse.
قُلْ إِنَّ الْمَوْتَ الَّذِي تَفِرُّونَ مِنْهُ فَإِنَّهُ مُلَاقِيكُمْ ثُمَّ تُرَدُّونَ إِلَى عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
Say, “Indeed, the death from which you flee – indeed, it will meet you. Then you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you about what you used to do.”
Apparently the young Indonesian boy does not only memorize Al-Quran, but also understands its content and reflects upon it. So when he read a paragraph that explained about death and what happened after death, he could not hold back his tears.
“And when they hear what has been revealed to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth. They say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so register us among the witnesses.”
