Al-Furqaan Foundation launches door-to-door Qur’an delivery campaign in Naperville
Addison, IL — 1st of Rabi I, 1428 — Al-Furqaan Foundation launches its door-to-door Qur’an delivery campaign to a complete zip code in Naperville, IL. In the next few days about 15,300 copies with a letter in a plastic bag will be hung on each door in the zip code. This is the 1st in a series of distributions to take place across the country as each household in America receives a free English copy.
“This is a historic step for US based Muslims, as we work to bridge the gapin understanding of Islam with our non-Muslim neighbors. Our effort is meant to clarify any prejudices and misconceptions one might have about Islam from the source of inspiration for over a billion Muslims around the world,” said Wajahat Sayeed, Founder and President of Al-Furqaan Foundation.
Al-Furqaan Foundation, having launched its Hotel room distribution a while ago, is now also incorporating the household distribution under its belt, with other efforts under way to place copies of the Qur’an in hospitals and other residential facilities such as retirement homes, nursing homes, etc.
“With these efforts, we look forward to a national dialogue about Islam. Dialogue will help for a better understanding and understanding will lead to trust,” said Omar Baloch, Al-Furqaan Foundation staff.
Al-Furqaan Foundation is a non-profit dawah organization based in Chicago. Al-Furqaan Foundation publishes and prints Islamic material. Its objective is to deliver a copy of the translation of the Qur’an to every household, hotel and hospital room, college dorm, and retirement home in America.
The English only copy (no Arabic) is a modern English translation that has been translated and printed in the US and has been approved by the highest Islamic authorities such as the Al-Azhar University in Egypt. For questions, comments, or concerns please go to our websites www.al-furqaan.org
