To transmit the knowledge of the Qur'an and Sunnah to future generations.
The American Qur'an Institute was established in Toledo, Ohio in 2014 at Masjid Saad by Sheikh Abu Salman. Our aim is to spread the discipline of proper Qur'anic recitation guided by:
- The Qur'anic verses, “...and recite the Qur'an in slow, measured rhythmic tones” (Qur'an 73:4), and “Those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital” (Qur'an 2:121).
- The Prophetic Hadith “It will be said to the reciter of the Qur'an: Read, and ascend, and recite as you used to recite in the [previous] world, for your status will be according to the last verse that you recite.”
Alhamdulillah, the American Qur'an Institute has graduated over 130 students in the Toledo community with ijaazah, certification that their recitation matches that of the Prophet ﷺ. The Qur'an Institute has also formed programming to benefit the youth in the area. We ask Allah to put barakah in our efforts as we meet the demands of the Toledo community and beyond.
