Class Description


This class will meet every day to work on an entire reading of the Holy Quran together by the end of Ramadan. Volunteers will take turns reading one page each aloud, while teens in the audience can read along quietly. By reading 20 pages a day in the 30 days of Ramadan, we will be able to achieve our goal of reading the whole Quran by the end of Ramadan! Let’s take an hour a day in this blessed month to allow the words of Allah (swt) to wash over us and envelop us in light!
