Go Read It!

My mom, Iffath Hasan, has been an Islamic education instructor all my life, starting with teaching my brother and I when we were wee ones, then moving on to other kids who lived in our building in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and eventually teaching both children and adults all over the Chicagoland area for the better part of the past twenty years. In the meantime, she's also written a book aimed at making it easier to understand the style of Arabic used in the Qur'an, and I helped her set up a blog to connect with students across the world. I'm continually amazed and humbled when I meet people even way out here in California who've benefited from her instruction, and who speak of her with such reverence. Thus, I was understandably proud when the Chicago-based Muslim Women's Alliance presented her with an award for her work for the Muslim community two Sundays ago. Check out this article from the local paper detailing the event.
