A ten-year-old Palestinian boy from Gaza, despite suffering from autism - a disorder of brain development, experience difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors, has memorized the Holy Quran in just one year.

Khalid Abu Musa

An educational expert, Nedve Abdulal, from the private school where children with autism undergo rehabilitation, has said that the Gazan child, Khalid Abu Musa memorized the whole Holy Quran by listening to the verses being read to him repeatedly.

Abu Musa has also learned to read and write, despite these things being extremely difficult for children with autism. In addition, he has been able to communicate with other children and play games, according to Daily Sabah.

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior. Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child's life.

The signs typically develop gradually, but some children with autism will reach their developmental milestones at a normal pace and then regress.

Autism is highly heritable, but the cause includes both environmental factors and genetic susceptibility. In rare cases, autism is strongly associated with agents that cause birth defects.

Holy Quran memorizing is considered as the most revered act by Muslims. It is extra ordinary if someone with disability completes the task.
