Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi, al-Habib Kazim al-Saqqaf and Shaykh Umar Khatib all gave their support and prayed for Kitaba’s first publication, Forty Hadith on the Excellence of the All-Clarifying Illuminating Quran.
The book was launched at The Trodden Path retreat in Wales on Sunday 17th August and at the Conclusion of the Forty Hadith Course in Glasgow on Sunday 24th August.
Abdul Aziz Ahmed represented Kitaba at The Trodden Path – Wales Retreat. He introduced the project to the students of Sacred Knowledge and asked al-Habib Kazim, a visiting lecturer from the prestigious Dar al-Mustafa school in Hadramaut, to pray for the success of the project.
Imran Sabir, Chairman of Kitaba – Islamic Texts for the Blind, explained the project and passionately and vividly described the needs of people with visual impairments. Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi, a famous scholar and expert in Hadith literature, added his support for the project and narrated his own chain of narrators that link him to the text and then prayed for the success of the project.
Copies of the book were on sale at both events. At the Glasgow event copies of the Braille version of the text and The Quran in Braille were also on display.
The book, Forty Hadith on the Excellence of the All-Clarifying Illuminating Quran, will be taught at al-Furqan mosque in Glasgow on the 6th and 7th of September.
