Aarron Zayd Burgin lost his vision through retinitis pigmentosa

Aarron Zayd Burgin lost his vision through retinitis pigmentosa at the age of 10 but today he is a black belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu and teaches and competes with able bodied people. After he converted to Islam at the age of 18 he started to learn the Quran with a sheikh and Alhamdulillah has memorized almost one third of the Quran.

AlFitrah Foundation was happy to gift him a copy of Imam Nawawi’s collection of 40 Hadith and inshaa Allah will be sending him a Braille Quran very soon.
