We have launched a nonprofit organization called Islam By Touch dedicated to producing and distributing braille copies of the Saheeh International translations of the holy Quran and other Islamic literature free of charge. Initially, we intend to circulate braille copies of these books to mosques, Islamic centers, libraries, and organizations for the blind across the United States. However, our ambition is to eventually make these transcriptions attainable worldwide. Currently, to our knowledge, there are no Braille copies of English translations of Islamic literature available to the public free of charge. We feel there is a tangible need to donate braille copies of these texts.
We want to provide every blind Muslim and every individual searching for information on Islam the choice to be able to read for themselves. We all know that seeking knowledge is a God-given right, and we want to offer blind individuals an option on how they follow their pursuit of enlightenment. Allah blessed all human beings with the right to dignity, respect, equality and validation, and we want to help to ensure that blind individuals feel that the Muslim community fully acknowledges this fact.
We hope you find our mission to be as important as we do. This project is very near to our hearts and we appreciate any support you can give. We truly hope you'll take the time to donate to our cause. Together, we can give blind Muslims a choice. Together, we can stand tall and give our blind brothers and sisters respect and validation.
