Learning correct Recitation of the Holy Qur'an
Chino-(Source: Staff Writer) Every evening after congregational prayers, men and women of the Mosque gather and work to perfect their recitation of the Holy Qur'an. It is common practice for Muslims to learn to read and recite the Qur'an in Arabic, as this was the tongue in which it was revealed from God to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). These sessions give people an opportunity to practice reciting. Frequently the recitation is also translated and a short explanation of the verses is given in english. These sessions are open to all who wish to attend and are conducted in english.
