VISUALLY IMPAIRED STUDENT MEMORISES QUR’ĀN THROUGH BRAILLE

Inside India

It is indeed a remarkable feat. A visually challenged student in an Islamic studies centre at Mallapuram, Kerela has memorised the Holy Qur’ān entirely using the Braille script. Twaha Mahboob, a 21-year-old student of the College of Tahfeelul Qur’ān under Ma’din Academy, came in for praise from a gathering of scholars and students when he recited verses from the Qur’ān at a conference at the campus recently. Though it is not rare for blind people to memorise the Qur’ān, learning the holy text through Braille script is rare, according to some scholars at the conference.

Mahboob took three years to memorise the Quran with all its 114 Surahs (chapters) and 6,666 verses and he can now recall and explain any verse from any Surah at any part of the holy book. Mahboob, who hails from a family of Islamic scholars, has been pursuing a seven-year course at Ma’din Blind School, Swalath Nagar. “I can now read Quran just as any of the sighted persons. I praise the Almighty for fulfilling my ambition of entirely memorising the holy Quran by this Ramadan,” Mahboob said.
