My name is Yasser Mohammed Ashoriya. I am married with three sons Alhamdulillah.
I began reciting the Quran at the age of 6 and started memorizing quran when I was at the age of 20 under Sheikh Mustafa as-Saghir. I did face many obstacles and difficulties in my journey with the Quran but by the Bounty and Blessing of Allah Almighty, Allah allowed me to complete my memorization.
My father has always encouraged me to recite and memorize Quran. I believe that it is a duty upon each one of us to learn the Quran, because it is the Word of Allah and will InSha Allah be an intercessor for us on the Day of Judgement. I try to recite Quran and make the Quran alive and present in all that I do, and recitation of Quran grants me a sense of peace and contentment.
My favourite Surah is Al-Ikhlaas, as it deals with Tawheed and equates to a third of the Quran.
I became a teacher of the Quran as I feel an obligation to teach this book especially to the non Arabic speaking audience. An important characteristic of a teacher is that we should instill the love of the Quran into the hearts and lives of the students, and inSha Allah I pray that this is a sadaqah jaariyah for me.
Tanzeel has afforded me the oppurtunity of gaining more experience In teaching the Book of Allah especially to non-Arabic speaking students. My goal is to assist as many Muslims in reciting the Quran in the proper and correct way as it was revealed to our Messenger (saw), my goal is also to assist the student in developing a closer relationship and love for the Quran, and be a means of motivation to establish a stronger relationship with Allah Almighty.
