Lokman Ayva from the Turkish blind association Beyazay

We are happy to share a photo of Lokman Ayva from the Turkish blind association Beyazay and the words from our Turkish friends:

Hagia Sophia is a one thousand five hundred year old building. When muslims conquered İstanbul, it was used as a mosque for 481 years.

Unfortunately, in 1934, it was changed to museum . But alhamdulillah, yesterday, its status as a mosque again was confirmed by president Erdogan. We had been very sad since 1934 and we are very very happy now, brothers and sisters. What Lokman brother is saying is Alhamdulillah, thousands of alhamdulillah.

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.
