Blind Muslims in Kazakhstan who have just started to learn to read the Quran in Braille. The teacher is Askar Shakirov who took the initiative to learn Quraanic Braille with us when he was studying at the International Islamic University here. Askar wants to come back to Malaysia to do his Masters degree in Fiqh. Inshaa Allah we will be sponsoring his studies as many Kazakh Muslims are only learning about Islam now after decades of living under Communism. Askar is possibly the only one in his country who can teach the Quran in Braille. He is sighted but growing up he had a close friend who was deaf, which made him aware of the needs of the disabled.
