Yusuf Aslam, a 7-year-old boy from Luton, England has finished memorising the Qur’an aged 7. He follows in the footsteps of his older sister Maariya who also memorised the Qur’an two years ago at the same age. It took him just over two years to memorise all 114 chapters of the book of Allah.
Brother Sabri in the UK is a sighted Quran teacher but he is keen to learn the Quran in Braille so that he can also teach the blind. We have put him in touch with a blind hafidz who is willing to teach him by phone using the Quraanic Braille primer we posted to him last week. May Allah bless his efforts and make it easy for him.
Maulana Nawaz has successfully been teaching the blind to read the Quran for several years by cell phone. When he receives any request he sends them a Braille Quraanic Primer by post then he starts teaching. (Braille Primers teach the basics like the Arabic alphabet and tajweed) Alhamdulillah AlFitrah Foundation provided him two sets of Braille Qurans and 20 copies of Braille Primers.
We have sent 250 Braille primers and 50 Braille Qurans to India so far. If you'd like to help our efforts in India and other places you can sponsor the cost of a primer( RM50/ USD12) or a Braille Quran ( RM250/ USD60) at www.alfitrah.net MBB 5-64324-604245 AlFitrah Foundation.

When Ustaz Islah Busakorn came to our office in the month of Shawal he told us about the Madrassa he had built in Chiangmai the first one for blind Muslims in Thailand. He asked for a braille type writer , braille Quran and islamic books as well as white canes.
