Human begun to form completely different when he/she read Qur'an, very excited, freshen. When a person feels in vain, he/she freshen when read the Qur’an. I believe that determined make you win everything.

I came here when I heard that the Qur’an course has opened. I was very happy when I started the Qur'an. I am very excited about reading the Qur'an, and it seems to me that I want to read more. At first, I was only memorizing when I came to the course. I feel very sorry for other people who are not disabled because we read with braille with the fingers and read it while other people do not read it. Hopefully they will recite Holy Qur’an." (ILKHA)
