In this episode, Sheikh Fahad travels to Mauritania, known in the past the Land of the Chinquett, who in the past has always been known for their tight connection to Islam and for the large amount of scholars produced from it. He visits the Mahdarah of Ridwan where he interviews a 10 year old boy, Al 3Allaama, who started memorizing at age 6/7 and finished at age 8. He has won several competitions in Mauritania.

- One may intend to memorize because he wants to be close to the Quran, so he may have it with him wherever he is, at the masjid, in school, at work etc
- Or one may intend to be of the people of the Quran, for there is a hadith that says that the people of Quran are those who are closest to Allah
- One may intend to teach others the Quran, for there is a hadith that says The best of you are those who learn and teach the Quran
- One may intend to memorize Quran so he can honor his parents with the crown of light on the Day of Judgment
- the significance and emphasis on defining one’s intentions is because during your journey of memorizing, you may feel lazy or become bored with the memorization routine
