Praise be to Allaah and blessings of Allaah be upon His Messenger and Chosen Prophet.

The Companions of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) were the most eager of people to do good and the swiftest in doing righteous deeds, and the most able to do such deeds.

One of the greatest of their concerns was memorising the Book of Allaah, learning it and acting upon it, then teaching it to people. 

They used to learn it from the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him), and they would teach it to one another. 

So whoever missed out on learning something from the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him), because they were preoccupied with jihad, would learn it from his companions.

Among the most prominent of these Sahaabah who memorised the the Book of Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with them) are the following:

1. Aboo Bakr As-Siddeeq (may Allaah be pleased with him): He died on a Monday in Jumaadaa Al-Oola 13 AH at the age of sixty-three. 

‘Umar led the funeral prayer for him, and he was buried with the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him). Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb (5/316)

2. ‘Umar bn Al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him): He was killed on a Wednesday 26 Dhu’l-Hijjah 23 AH, at the age of sixty-three; there are other views concerning his age. Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb (7/441)

3. ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan (may Allaah be pleased with him): He was one of those who memorised the Qur’aan at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him). 

He died a martyr, unlawfully killed in his house, on 18 Dhu’l-Hijjah 35 AH, at the age of eighty-two, according to the correct view.

4. ‘Aliyy bn Abee Taalib (may Allah be pleased with him): He was killed in Koofah on the morning of 17 Ramadaan 40 AH. 

He memorised the Qur’aan after the death of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him), and it was said that he memorised it during his lifetime.

5. Ubayy bn Ka‘b (may Allaah be pleased with him): He was the most prominent of the Qur’aan-reciters, the one who had best memorised the Book of Allaah. 

He memorised it at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) he died in Madeenah in 20 AH or 19 AH.

6. Abdullaah bn Mas‘ood bn Ghaafil (may Allaah be pleased with him): He memorised the Qur’aan at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him). He died in Madeenah at the end of 32 AH.

7. Zayd bn Thaabit bn Ad-Dahhaak (may Allaah be pleased with him): He memorised the Qur’aan at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him). 

He died in 45 AH, according to the more correct view.

8. Aboo Moosaa Al-Ash‘ari, Abdullaah bn Qays (may Allaah be pleased with him): He learned the Qur’aan from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him). 

He died in Dhu’l-Hijjah 44 AH according to the correct view.

9. Abu’d-Dardaa’ ‘Uwaymir bn Zayd Al-Ansaari (may Allaah be pleased with him): He learned the Qur’aan at the time of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him). He died in 33 AH.

10. Aboo Hurayrah Ad-Dawsi (may Allaah be pleased with him): He learned the Qur’aan from Ubayy ibn Ka‘b. He died in 57 or 58 or 59 AH.

May Almighty Allaah make the memorization of the Qur'aan easy for everyone one of us.
