An effort in f a c i l i t a t i o n

Reading Initiative

As the UAE is observing 2016 as the Year of Reading, the Islamic Affairs Ministry thought it to be appropriate to inform the Muslim masses through the first Friday of the Year.

Hence Reading, Key to Sciences was the theme of today’s Friday sermon in the UAE.

The initiative in the UAE is appreciable given the fact that reading as a habit has miserably shrunk in the contemporary world. It will also bring about an awareness among the citizens and residents of this plural society that the core content as well as the completeness of Islam is based on knowledge and enlightenment.

As the sermon is of universal relevance, it is given here for the benefit of one and all.

Baarakallaahu Feekum.

  2. I still think we read quite a bit in the contemporary world but more soft copies (online) than actual books. May Allah make it easy to build back this culture.
