Braille Quran Classes at Al Fitrah Foundation

After a two-year hiatus, Ustazah Halimah has resumed face-to-face braille Quran classes at Al Fitrah Foundation. Currently, there are three female students attending the twice weekly lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2:30 pm to 4:30pm.  

Al Fitrah Foundation sponsors these classes and engages transport to ferry these ladies to and from their homes for them to attend the classes.  They sell trinkets along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Kuala Lumpur to make ends meet almost daily. It is a tough job, but they persevere and still manages to find time to learn the Quran. Alhamdulillah for all their sacrifices.

In the meantime, we are working to get more students to enrol. We will keep the group to a minimum, to allow enough personal attention for the students. Should the numbers increase, more classes will be added.

Being able to stay connected, share experiences, challenges and learn from each other, has helped in her journey, thus far.

After familiarising herself with Islam, learning the holy Quran, reading the materials, and consulting with her Ustazah (religious teacher), sister BJ requested more books to expand her knowledge.
