The Quran

Relationship: Im/migrant

I've grown up with my religion Islam and it represents a part of me. The Quran is the book used by Muslims to read and let their faith grow stronger. I've started to read the Quran when I started my few years of elementary school. The Quran is in a language called Arabic, so first, I started learning that, then started reading. When I first got my own Quran book, I was happy that I finally got my own and could connect with my religion more. Since my mom was religious too, she taught me how to memorize different verses which I could read during prayer. Getting the Quran was exciting for me because it has helped me to grow into the person I am right now. When translated into English, the Quran shows how God is the most important and how we should respect him. Since muslims have 5 prayers in a day, the Quran is full of verses to say in prayer to ask for forgiveness or to honor God. The Quran has helped me to connect with Islam and  follow the God we believe in who is Allah. The Quran represents many ways of how Allah is the most merciful, forgiving, and generous to all muslims.
