Islam By Touch: A Case Worth Our Attention

Published

on

Did you know that are no proper English translation of the Quran in Braille? And that there are a number of Muslims struggling everyday to learn about their religion?

The ‘Islam by touch’ organization is the first Muslim organization in North America, that has dedicated its efforts to the blind community. They produce braille copies of Islamic literature in English, and then distribute it to the blind community, free of charge.

Their ultimate goal is reaching out to all blind Muslims across the globe, but their initial one right now is to provide copies in North America. As there are no braille translations of the Quran, available in this part of the world.

The organization, however, is facing challenges that are threatening their continuous existence. All due to lack of money, and this is when their case started going viral on social media.

Foreign bling Muslims complain that they are not seen, even though they’re the blind, it seems to them that sometimes others are the ones who are blind to their case.

A couple were explaining that they are facing trouble in learning about Islam, and that there has to be a way, for them to gain support.

Influencers on social media started to take an action by sharing their stories online, and we must as well take an action, either through sharing their stories as well, or donating a fair amount to their organization.

If you want to support their case or donate, visit their website for all their latest updates as well: https://islambytouch.com/

Saudi Arabia Corona Virus

It is no news now that the Coronavirus ( COVID – 19) is on the rise globally and is widely spreading at an alarming rate. Sadly enough, it’s beginning to reach the Arab world and is now considered a major threat, as Arab officials are trying to limit and contain the spread of the virus.
In Saudi Arabia, pharmacies have been struggling to meet the demands on face masks, as more and more people are buying them to protect themselves from the disease. The face masks stocks have been decreasing in a rapid way across the country , with some pharmacies even limiting the amount of face masks sold to people to 5 boxes each, as a way to keep their stock and give it to other people who are in need of them as well.

Although the Saudi ministry of health stated that there are no cases of corona reported. People are buying face masks in huge quantities and hoarding as much as they can, fearing that soon they would disappear from pharmacies; which is apparently happening , due to the large demand on them especially because of the Hajj and Umrah season, where the kingdom is filled with people from all around the globe; As people will be in close contact to one another and going to crowded areas ,which increases the risk of someone catching the virus and threatens the well- being of the country since the disease can spread easily.
The ministry of health also stated that there are various measures that are taken continuously in order to ensure that there are no cases of the virus in the kingdom, with them checking on every individual that is coming from a country that had an outbreak, and thoroughly taking the right actions to limit the amount of people who enter the kingdom whether it is for Hajj, Umrah or other reasons.

KSA gifts Egypt with piece of Kaaba

Great news has hit Egypt yesterday evening. The Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Egypt has handed a beautiful piece of the Kaaba Kiswah to the Egyptian tourism minister as a present that is yet to be added in as a part of display in the new museum that will open pretty soon.

The Kiswah means it is something we use to cover an item, which in this case, is the Kaaba. Which is why we are extremely proud to have a unique addition to our new museum. Osama Al-Nugali, the Saudi Ambassador stated that granting a piece of the Kiswah is a delightful way to contribute in enhancing the historical relations as well as foster religious ties between both countries.

Since Egypt has been developing and restoring various archaeological areas as well as establishing museums throughout Egypt, Nugali believes that this is a well deserved present for their efforts hence praising them and their hard work.

So far, what we know for a fact is that the New Administrative Capital museum consists of two floors and is located on a land of 8500 square meters. Also, it consists of a main exhibition hall that includes sub galleries as well.

“The Museum of Antiquities in the City of Arts and Culture will feature a thousand artifacts that tell the history of Egypt through different historical eras. Its entrance is decorated with two Egyptian obelisks, which were brought from the eastern San Hajar area in Sharqiya. It will also house the newly discovered Toto cemetery, which was recently dismantled and relocated from Sohag to the Administrative Capital Museum,” Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri revealed in August.

We are proud to add that the New Administrative Capital’s City of Arts and Culture will include an Opera House built on a land of 86,000 square meters. It is said that the number of individuals that can be accommodated in the new Opera Theater are up to 2,200 people. Pretty cool!

Also, other additions to the city are various buildings for Cinema, Music, and Sculpture as well as a wide range of restaurants and services that could be granted for the beloved visitors. It is obvious that all the time and money invested in this project is worthwhile and well spent.

“The establishment of the City of Arts and Culture in the New Administrative Capital came at the request of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, where the establishment of the city started more than a year ago. Fifteen thousand workers participated in the construction operations. The timetable for the establishment of the city was 7 years, and it was pressed to 2 years as directed by the president,” said Walid Samy, the general manager of Almasa Group.

After filling you in on all the details, you yourself will find that we as a country do deserve the Kaaba’s Kiswah as a present of victory for all the accomplishments that Egypt has been achieving.
