    I personally know many Muslim men, women, and children who have memorized the Quran.

    To do so is not unusual within the Islamic community.

    They are known as a "hafiz"

    And their occupations range from cabdriver, to house wife, to doctors, and PhD's

    Every mosque that I have been associated with has a weekend Quran memorization classes for children.
