QUR'AN PROJECT: Shaykh Nooruddeen’s transliteration/translation of the Tajwidi Qur’an
This mesage is sent on behalf of the an-Noor Foundation, at the special request of Sidi al-Jamal.
Shaykh Nooruddeen’s transliteration/translation of the Tajwidi Qur’an has been a blessing for us all. Through it we have been able to begin to learn Arabic, and meanwhile to capture the sound of the Arabic verses in order to purify and perfect our prayers. We have also had the benefit of a generous and beneficent translation free of gender or political bias.
Hundreds of copies are with Sidi Muhammad’s students and at the Sufi Centers, as well as spread throughout the country and the world in homes and masajid. It is almost sold out. We had hoped to finance its reprinting by its sales, but the monies were used instead in supporting our center where the Qur’an is taught and read to refugees and to new Muslim reverts.
So we are now asking all of you who know and love the Qur’an if you can help to make it available to others through your gift. Anything at all will help, but here are some suggestions:
Send $33 as hadiyyah to give a copy of the Qur’an to somebody else in the future; it will be given away after the printing, Insha’Allah.
Donate a significant amount as a sadaqa jariyyiah – ongoing sadaqa – in honor of someone you love, e.g. your mother, your husband, your child, a friend. We will mention the person in a gifts page in the mushaf itself and ask that al-Fatihah be read for them.
Make a beautiful loan – a qarda hassana – to the Qur’an project with no interest. It will be repaid, Insha’Allah, from the future sales.
Become a partner in the project; invest in a number of books which you will then receive to distribute or sell yourself.
