Tahfiz education is expanding significantly in tandem with the expansion of Malaysia's education system today. Recently, the community has expressed a strong interest in tahfiz education as a possible option for their children. In the excitement of pursuing the title of al-Hafiz and al-Hafizah, there is irritation when memorising that supposes to be preserved and taken care of vanishes from memory. According to the research findings through the student interviews in the field of Tahfiz and Qiraat conducted at public universities such as Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia, Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, and private universities such as Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Selangor, more than 70% of the candidates who hold the title of al-hafiz and al-hafizah have forgotten the verses that they have memorised. This dissatisfaction is exacerbated when tahfiz institutions emphasise that students can complete the memorization syllabus within the given time frame without focusing on repetition of memory. This problem will persist as long as there is no grassroots initiative to address it. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate intrinsic motivation: issues and challenges in maintaining al-Quran memorization among students enrolled in the Bachelor of Qiraat programme at USIM (SMQ USIM).  This is a case study that is using qualitative approach. The case study was chosen because it allows for a more in-depth examination of a more specific case or topic related to intrinsic motivation: concerns and issues in maintaining Quran memory among USIM students. The sampling technique was used to select study participants to answer the study's questions, and 21 students participated as study participants.  According to the study's findings, intrinsic motivation among Qiraat students from USIM can be divided into two themes based on the research questions. First, the intrinsic motivation of tahfiz students to repeat the Qur'an is separated into four major themes: sincerity, willingness, longing, and admiration. The two intrinsic motivations involved in the process of memorising repetition are further split into three major themes: repetition rate, discipline, and guidance. This study has significant implications, particularly for USIM and Tahfiz institutions in Malaysia, in emphasising the aspect of repetition (muraja’ah) since the stage of memorising the Quran so that all students and those with the titles of al-hafiz and al-hafizah can maintain the Quranic memorisation until the end of their lives.
