Preparing for the Let’s Read The Quran Campaign 2015

Hi guys! Peace be with you all.

As per the earlier campaign, we are starting the Let’s Read The Quran campaign this upcoming fasting month – Ramadhan 2015. The campaign will be from 18th June until 17th July 2015. Click here

How can you start reading the Quran?

You can start by reading the translations of the Quran. I like Muhammad Asad’s The Message of the Quran, Ahmad Zidan’s Translation of the Glorious Quran and Abdullah Yusuf Ali’s The Meaning of the Holy Quran.

I also recommend people to read Mawlana Abdul Kalam Azad’s The Opening Chapter of the Qur’an (Surah Al-Fatihah) which gives a philosophical look of the Quran and Fazlur Rahman’s Major Themes of the Qur’an which gives a holistic view of the Book. You can get these books from The Other Press Sdn Bhd, 607 Mutiara Majestic, Jalan Othman, 46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Person in charge: Yusoff Tel: 603-77813197 Website:

You (especially Non-Muslims) can also watch Lesley Hazleton’s video, Lesley Hazleton: A “Tourist” Reads the Quran where Lesley Hazleton, a non-Muslim shares the grace, flexibility and mystery she found while reading the Quran. You can watch the interesting video here

For the Malay and Mandarin translations, I recommend you go to JAKIM’s website:

There are many websites where you can get translations in various languages. Here’s two.

Happy reading!
