All India Braille Qur’an Conference

All Praise to Allah (SWT) the Lord of the Worlds and Peace and Salutations be upon our beloved Prophet Nabi Muhammed (S.A.W).

Alhumdullilah, Madrassa An-Noor for the Blind was invited to attend the First All India Braille Qur'an conference that took place on the 25th and 26th of December 2016 in Melvisharam which is situated near the city of Chennai in India. Our principal Moulana Hassan Murchie was invited to attend.

Over 200 blind people from all parts of India including Kashmir, Maharashtra, U.P and Hyderabad etc attended this historical conference. Some of the chief guests who attended this conference were Moulana Rehmatullah of Srinagar, Moulana Mohamed Tayeb who is the Khalifa of Moulana Hussain Ahmad Madni R.A.

The world famous Naat reciter, Moulana Ehsan Mohsin had the audience captivated. Many young blind Naat reciters as young as 5 years old displayed tremendous talent through their beautiful voices in their recitation of the Holy Qur'an and Naats which left us in tears.
Moulana Muzammilludeen Nadwi who is the main Braille Qur'an Workshop coordinator for India also addressed the gathering. Some of the deliberations at this conference included empowering the blind after learning the Qur'an to respective jobs so that they can be empowered economically.

The Braille Qur'an that has been printed in India was exhibited and sets were distributed for free to many participants. Alhumdulil Allah, the Qur'an is now easily available in India.
May Allah (S.W.T) accept all the efforts of those that contributed to this conference especially our hosts, Moulana Mohammed Usman and Moulana Ebrahim of Melvisharam. Ameen.
