For Muslims, memorizing the text of the Qur’an is among the highest rewarding deeds since it has long been perceived to be the manifestation of the idea of guarding the religion. Persons capable of memorizing the whole thirty chapters of the Qur’an are believed to be spiritually superior and, thus, are rewarded a highly respected position in a Muslim society. However, to do such a herculean task of Memorization, one should start the job as soon as she or he could; as soon as early childhood. This paper, therefore, aims at exploring the dynamic inter-relationship between sacred and profane motives in the process of memorization of Qur’an among hafizes of Qur’an (guardians of the Qur’an) in East Borneo, Indonesia, by answering twofold questions; (1) What are the main determinant factors affecting the decision to memorize the Qur’an? and (2) how full-fledged hafizes of Qur’an see their huge efforts in doing such tasks?
