Blind Muslim students in Malaysia study Quran using Braille
June 12, 2017
A small group of blind students in Malaysia is attempting to learn the entire Quran with the help of Braille. This is a massive task that requires them to read each page of the holy text up to 40 times.
The students, who were all born blind, are among a group of 1,000 at the Darul Quran school who are learning and memorizing Islam's holy text. They depend on made-in-Malaysia copies written in Braille, which come in six thick volumes.
Once they finish their course, they can opt for further Islamic studies at university level. There are many Malaysian institutions offering classes with the Braille Quran. Similar Braille copies can also be found in countries such as Indonesia.
