Brother Askar is back in Kazakhstan
Alhamdulillah. I can't say how pleased I am to see my friend Askar Kz Sakhirov teaching the blind in Kazakhstan. We worked with him at the Braille Association of Malaysia , and he learnt braille from scratch, thereafter Quraanic braille, and put together a Kazakh version of our braille Quran primer, with the help of Ustaz Sumairi.
Now Askar has gone back to Kazakhstan and started the first classes in reading the Quran in braille for the blind. May Allah bless him and his mother for their efforts.
The following is his comment from his facebook page.
Assalamu aleikum for everyone! Alhamdulillah, I safely came back to my hometown, and today we started our braille classes with my blind brothers and sisters, they were very happy, because it was first class for them. I want to say thank to my teachers and friends, especialy for my mother and to the Braille Associatin of Malaysia, also to the sister Norma Hashim who support during my study time. I hope insha Allah we will met again in our university soon. Have a nice holiday for all!
