Learning and memorizing the Quran

It’s said in every house in Gaza there would be a person who has memorized the Quran. Learning and memorizing the Quran teaches you perseverance and patience and I always felt this was one reason why Palestinians have been so resilient against an occupation supported by the most powerful countries in the world.

To this end we have worked with Dar AlQuran Gaza for many years to run courses to teach the blind to memorize the Quran. Today their new rep Belal alRamli visited alFitrah office and was fascinated to see a Braille Quran for the first time and listened to our staff Abdul Majid read a Braille Quran.

There are 3,000 Quran teachers in Gaza and this year DQWS has started teaching online , and this has proved so helpful when CoVid kept people indoors. They are teaching people all over the world now . Inshaa Allah AlFitrah Foundation Braille Quran Initiative will work together to promote this project with them in English. In the video and photos the students are using our Braille Qurans we sent to Gaza last year.

Online classes students to memorize Quran

People around the world have been under quarantine for the last 3 months but Gaza has been under movement control for the last 13 years. The Israeli blockade since 2007 has severely impacted the economy and now 86% of families rely on aid.

During the time of Covid-19 when masjids and Quran learning centres have closed, the lives of students and teachers at Dar AlQuran in Gaza has been impacted further.

Many teachers have become impoverished so we started a program to pay their salaries and online classes have started so students can continue to memorize the Quran.

We are raising USD10,000 to pay teachers salaries. Each teacher is being paid US$100 per month; able to teach more than 10 students per month.

Al Fitrah Foundation (based in Kuala Lumpur) has been supporting the Quran classes for many years, especially the memorization Quran classes for the blind students. Al Fitrah Foundation has delivered 100 braille Qurans to Gaza too, paid for by donors in Malaysia and Singapore.

Viva Palestina Malaysia has also been coordinating partner with Al Fitrah Foundation for Gaza Quran summer camp project for blind students for 8 years.

AlFitrah Foundation Braille Quran Initiative from Chittagong, Bangladesh

I am always thankful when our Braille Quran reaches a blind person far away because it takes months on a ship to get there, and could so easily be lost. Today I got an email from Noushad who first wrote to AlFitrah Foundation Braille Quran Initiative from Chittagong, Bangladesh, 6 months ago about his relative Mohammad Gofran who was born in 1988,without any physical challenge, “his eyes were OK. When Gorfan was 10 he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and during surgery in 1998, unfortunately he lost his sight . That time Gofran was student of Class Six.

After 3 years of blindness he started education at year 2001 from nursery at an Autism school of Chittagong, Bangladesh; at 2006 he completed primary education from the school. Then he admitted at high school near to his home, he studied at the school for 4 years, due to some challenge he cannot seat for Secondary School examination from the school. Then he was admitted to open university and passed Secondary School examination at year 2012.

At present Gofran spend his time at a small Khankha (where people pray) located at Dohazari, Chittagong,Bangladesh. Gofran’s present family consist of his mother and 3 sisters; His Father who supported him to come so far has died at the year 2017. “@ Chittagong City - চট্টগ্রাম শহর
