The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The example of him (a believer) who recites the Qur’an is like that of a citron which tastes good and smells good. And he (a believer) who does not recite the Qur’an is like a date which is good in taste but has no smell. And the example of a dissolute wicked person who recites the Qur’an is like the Raihana (sweet basil) which smells good but tastes bitter. And the example of a dissolute wicked person who does not recite the Qur’an is like the colocynth which tastes bitter and has no smell.”
History of Al-Otrojah
The Al-Otrojah project started in Canada in 2014 . The school utilizes a well-structured program that adopts an efficient, easy-to-follow method which has helped thousands of students and scholars achieve solid memorization of the Holy Quran, and get their “Sanad Ejaza” of the Holy Qur’an of Hafs from Asem from the way of Shatebya.
We are proud to be a part of the Muslim Association of Canada so we may share our success story with the Canadian Muslim community, and keep encouraging the memorization of the Holy Qur’an.
Al-Otrojah’s vision is for a specialized Qur’anic centre for excellent and easy memorization of the Qur’an, learning of the rules of Tajweed and a simplified yet comprehensive understanding of the Qur’an’s meanings, accessible to each Muslim community across Canada.
