The idea of donating Quran Speakers to hospitals came to me when my father was admitted to hospital not long ago.
As you are not allowed visitors after specific hours at certain hospitals, I left my father my Quran Cube to listen to Quran recitation. From listening to the recitation of the Quran, he advised me that he felt at ease during his recovery. After this, I wanted others at the Hospital to feel at ease too. This is when I started fundraising to donate Quran Cubes to Oldham Hospital.
Initially, I had started a fundraiser on JustGiving to raise £500 just so I can donate to the Royal Oldham Hospital but on the 12th of January a mother messaged me on Instagram.
She said (about the Quran Cubes being donated) "SubhanAllah this is something me and my Son would have benefited from." She said her son loved to listen to the recitation of the Quran and wouldn't sleep during his time at the Hospital without it. I then asked her whether I could send her son a Quran Cube (from me) as he liked listening to Quran, but to this she replied, "My son passed away on February 2019."
It was at this moment I decided that I wanted everyone to be able to listen to the recitation of the during their difficult times in hospitals. Many muslim patients want to listen to the recitation of the Quran but cannot because they do not have access to the internet or the reception isn't good in their ward. Having a Quran Cube is simple for everyone to use and allows that patient to listen to the recitation of the Quran.
Since then I have started to raise money and have managed to purchase over 150 Quran Cubes, most of which have been distributed to hospitals. I have since received a lot of emails from various hospitals and am in the process of donating cubes to them. I am continuing to raise funds so that I can purchase more Quran Cubes to provide all the hospitals that are requesting them.
I pray Allah swt accepts all of our efforts and brings mercy and healing to those who are suffering in hospitals through the recitation of the Quran and may he allows us to come together to provide more hospitals with this facility.
A donation of £10 will cover the cost of at least one Quran Speaker. May Allah swt accept your donations as Sadaqah Jaariyah.
