ACTNews, TANGERANG REGENCY, PRABUMULIH, BEKASI – The Quran is a holy book revealed by Allah to Prophet Muhammad to be used as a guide for Muslims all over the world. People are also encouraged to read the Quran more frequently. The irony is that proper Quran copies are not available for everyone to own.
Students from the Bani Samarinda Islamic Boarding School in Hatieun Village, Mekarsari Village, Jambe, Tangerang Regency, Banten, were among them. According to the Global Wakaf-ACT team's monitoring, the school has been unable to meet the students' needs for Quran copies due to a lack of reliable operational funds.
"This is extremely unfortunate. With the students' strong desire to recite and memorize the Quran, they will undoubtedly require assistance in obtaining the Quran. They no longer need to queue using shabby manuscripts with the new Quran copies," Muhammad Abdul Ghofur from the Tangerang Regency ACT team said on Monday(5/9/2022).
At the end of last Ramadan, the team distributed Quran copies at the Bani Samarinda Islamic Boarding School. They presented the school with 55 Quran copies.
"We give these Quran copies during Ramadan. Hence, students can also maximize their recitations at the end of the holy month. Insha Allah, this high-quality Quran copy will be able to survive its condition and be read until Ramadan next year," Ghofur stated.
Meanwhile, Prabumulih and Bekasi committed similar activities on the same day. Aksi Cepat Tanggap team distributed hundreds of Quran copies at Tijanul Islam Quran Learning Center, Tanjung Telang Village, West Prabumulih and Darul Iman Islamic Boarding School, Sukamakmur Village, Sukakarya District, Bekasi Regency.
ACT team distributed the Quran copies to students and Quran teachers Most of them came from low-income families. They are having difficulty purchasing new Quran copies.
"Alhamdulillah, thank you very much, ACT team. Insha Allah, the students, and the community surrounding the school will benefit from this Quran. May Allah bless ACT and allow it to continue to be a great institution that provides broader benefits," said Ustaz Zaenudin (42), one of the teachers at the Darul Iman Islamic Boarding School, when met by the ACT team.
