Kulgam, Mar, 01: A teenage tribal youth from far flung area of South Kashmir’s Kulgam district wrote holy Quran with his hand in merely two months.
Shabir Ahmed Bakerwal (17), a resident of Nigeepora Kund who started writing the Holy Quran by using colored pencils and sketches, finished it in just two months.
Shabir who is studying in class 10th is sole bread earner for his family after his father died four years ago.
Speaking to Asia News Observer (ANO) Shabir said that he has spent almost eight weeks on writing the 6666-verses of Quran, divided into 114 chapters and has 77,430 words written in the Arabic language. He said apart from studies i was also working to earn a livelihood for my family.
“I wrote the Holy Quran in just 60 days and my teacher Molana Sabzar Ahmad Koka and Molana Riyaz Ahmad at the Darsgah supported me to write Quran, he said adding that I used normal paper as I do not have money to buy other kinds of paper. Due to unavailability of electricity at night, I used to write in a day light, he said
Sharing a message, Shabir said, “My message to all those struggling youth is, in life you will go through many ups and downs and to achieve your goal on the path of success, first and foremost you have to work hard, be passionate which will enable you to grow further in your life.”
