My name is Eman Mustafa Fathy El-Nadar.
This journey with the Qur’an began through my parents, who would often inform me of the prophetic narration:
(خيركم من تعلم القرآن وعلمه)
“The best among you are those that learn the Qur’an and teach it.” [Bukhari]
And subsequently would send me to the Masjid to learn Qur’an from the Sheikh. Alhamdulillah, Allah blessed me to complete the memorization of the Qur’an when I was 12 years old.
Throughout my years of study at Al-Azhar University, I would constantly revise the Book of Allah and I often studied and recited with a Sheikh to review my memorization and recitation. Alhamdulillah I have Ijaazah in memorization of the Qur’an from Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim, from the way of Shatebeya and At-Tayyibah.
My relationship with the Qur’an is such that I ask Allah to grant me death whilst I recite His Book.
I teach Qur’an with the intention of helping others recite the Qur’an with proper Tajweed, especially those who cannot speak or are not fluent in the Arabic language. I pray Allah makes this a Sadaqah Jaariyah for me.
I believe that we, as teachers, should build a relationship of trust and love with our students, motivating and assisting them, so that InShaaAllah, Allah opens our hearts and allows us to learn and teach His Book.
I am blessed to be part of Tanzeel, a program that increases my conviction that Islam will continue to spread by the Will of Allah. This encourages me to increase in doing what pleases Allah and in encouraging others to memorize and implement the Qur’an in their lives as well. My goal is to assist my students so that they too, one day, will be able to go on and teach the word of Allah to their children, family members and friends InShaaAllah.
