Purpose of Study: The present research aimed to find out whether memorizing Quran (tahfidz Quran) affected cognitive intelligence in kindergarten students. The research was conducted at Mardisiwi Islamic Kindergarten, Surakarta, Indonesia. The population consisted of a student group at the kindergarten. Ten students of the group were selected as the samples using a saturated sampling technique. The data source consisted of kindergarten students, a recapitulation of evaluation towards students, and data on students.
Methodology: The data was collected through test, observation, documentation, and interviews. The kindergarten students should memorize Al Insyirah surah of Quran using the Tasalsuli method. The observation of cognitive intelligence results was measured before (pre-treatment) and after the treatment (post-treatment). The results revealed that the procedure of memorizing Quran improved children cognitive intelligence.
Results: The research concluded that memorizing Quran in kindergarten might positively improve the children cognitive intelligence.
Implications/Applications: The cognitive intelligence score of children was 25.40 after the treatment. The score had an improvement of 5.00 then the pre-treatment test with a score of 20.40. The pre-treatment test resulted in 63.75% of improvement, while the post-treatment test resulted in 79.38%. The difference was 15.63%.
