Beautiful tradition of memorizing Quran
During our visit in Mali, Africa, we came to a village and noticed the children carrying small wooden planks--the kind that my mother used to cut vegetables on. Written on each side were some verses out of the Holy Qur'an. I asked them, why do you do this? They replied, this is how we learn, we do not have any other Qur'ans. I was shocked, thinking about the 20 copies laying around in my house collecting dust, while these students were trying to learn off of wood. So, we made them an offer they couldn't refuse. One of these wooden Quran planks in exchange for 500 nicely bound Qur'ans.
We later discovered that this was actually a way passed down from generations to make memorizing easier. Some students benefit more that way, but I’m sure just like most of us, we would rather have the entire compilation if we were planning on just reading the entire Quran.
Alhamdulillah, we were able to distribute thousands of new Quran with Tajweed.
For each letter that gets read, you will earn a reward Insh'Allah. $10 investment.
