Relationship: Child of im/migrant

Qur’an - One of the Most Powerful Sources of Knowledge. The Qur’an is the Muslim holy book.We recite the Qur’an every day to guide us along the right path in life.The Qur’an gives us power and protects my family, friends and me. It also helps us solve our problems. For example, a few months ago, I was facing lots of problems that I was afraid of sharing with anyone. My brother asked me if something was wrong. I said yes. He didn’t ask me anything else. He just said to recite the Tahajjud prayer at midnight and every Friday to listen to a recording of the Surah Al Kahf. I read the Qur’an and prayed and it really helped me.  When I’m done reciting the Qur’an, I kiss it and keep it in a safe place. The Qur’an reminds me of Almighty Allah or God. The Qur’an is written in Arabic. Some Qur’ans have been translated into English, Bangla etc. We have to learn the basics from the Kaida (an Arabic primer) before we can terawatt (recite) Qur’an. The Qur’an means a lot to my family and me.
