Many parents are keen to have their children memorise the Quran. But most of us don’t really understand Arabic, making it extremely challenging for young Muslims to connect with the Quran and understand its message.

Recently, we came across a copy of the Quran made specifically for young people with the Arabic text on one side and the English translation opposite. To our utter shock and surprise, the English translation used was from 1934, written in a dense, archaic style, which is difficult for even university graduates to understand, let alone young people!

By the grace of Allah, our translation, The Majestic Quran, has been very well-received, and many Schools and Madrassahs are using it in their lessons. Now is the time to produce an even simplified translation specifically for young people.

 

We began this journey when we noticed that even 13-year-old children were enjoying reading ‘The Majestic Quran’. So, we initiated this project to promote how the Quran is taught in Madrassahs and Muslim Schools. By combining the experience and expertise of Qualified school teachers and Scholars, this has resulted in a proposal to develop a suite of resources, which promote active learning, embed Quran study across the curriculum and encourage children to discover Islamic beliefs through the Quran.

At Invitation Publishing, we’re working hard on developing a range of resources including; a Textbook, accompanied by Presentations, sound clips that can be downloaded containing Quranic stories, beautiful recitation and resources for storytelling and story writing. These resources will comply with the DFE’s (Department for Education) requirements for RE (Religious Education) and guidance from SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education).

 

This is a project of Invitation Publishing based on ‘The Majestic Quran‘, which is the brainchild of Dr Musharraf Hussain Al-Azhari, Director of the Karimia Institute in Nottingham. As a prolific author of over 30 books, this has been a labour of love for over 4 years.

 

  1. To give young people an understanding of Islamic beliefs.
  2. To involve young people as active learners who can thoughtfully explore ‘big questions’ in the light of the Quran.
  3. To learn how their faith affects the world they live in.
  4. To engage young people in a personal search for meaning and purpose of life.
  5. To develop moral values that will make young people good citizens.
  6. To help teachers embed the study of the Quran across the curriculum.

Teachers are always looking for effective and inspirational ways to teach the Quran, they’re keen to use Quranic stories in class.

We aim to offer:

  • Training sessions for Madrassahs, full-time Muslim schools and state schools with a majority of Muslim pupils.
  • These training sessions will increase teachers’ knowledge and understanding of the Quran and develop their confidence in helping children to understand the message of the Quran.

Our teacher training will provide:

  • Effective storytelling sessions: Focussing on stories of the Quran in plain English.
  • Encouraging pupils to discuss how to use the Quran for developing strong character.
  • Tips for promoting moral, spiritual and social values from the Quran.

 

Since this book and the accompanying resources are aimed at young people, good design is key, the resources will contain:

  1. High-quality visuals: Our resources will contain outstanding visuals, including a range of maps, graphs, charts, infographics and images.
  2. Age-appropriate material: We will endeavour to develop material that is age-appropriate to maximise the impact of the resource.
  3. Well-balanced design: We will recruit a high-calibre designer who will develop our plans. We will ensure the textbook is aesthetically pleasing for young people by using appropriate colours, styling, fonts etc.
  4. Textbook storyline: Everybody loves a good story. But it needs to be well-written. In other words, it must have a setting, characters, a plot, a climax, and a resolution. In ten years’ time, your children won’t remember the title of the textbooks they studied at school, but they will remember the names of the main characters.

 

All backers (see rewards for full details) will get a copy of our beautifully crafted ‘The Majestic Quran’, designed to enhance your experience of the Divine communication. You will also get a bookmark (to save your place) with your reward.

Your generous donation will go towards producing and distributing these resources, which will act as a Sadaqah Jariah of making the Majestic Quran available to the masses and to non-Muslims as Dawah.

Imagine backing once and getting the ongoing reward, every time someone reads one of your backed resources? The unbelievable amount of ongoing reward that is available for your one-time investment into the production of these materials makes this a perfect, unique and not-to-be-missed Sadaqah Jariah opportunity.

More than anything, we want all our backers (especially our young people) to truly experience the feeling of falling in love with the Quran.

 

Your contributions will go directly towards launching these resources, particularly producing a ‘Teenagers Edition‘ that will be used in Schools and Madrassahs for young people to experience the Divine and glorious message of Allah’s words. There will also be some costs of promotion and administration, which we also hope to cover through your kind support.

It is our vision to see a world where the Quran is truly experienced, implemented and lived by. To do this, we need your help this Ramadan, The month of the Quran.

  • Please back us on FundAmal, so we can print and distribute these resources for young people.
  • Please spread this message and share this campaign with your friends and loved ones.
  • Please read the Quran, immerse yourself and reflect on the meaning and allow it to transform you.
  • Please remember us in your Duas.
