A friend in Alexandria related this to me:
One day while sitting at the school in which I take Islamic studies classes, my teacher introduced me to an Egyptian girl that memorizes Qur’an there. I remember thinking how shy and timid the girl seemed. After the girl left, my teacher revealed that she is both deaf and mute. I was both amazed and puzzled. I asked, “Well then, how does she memorize/recite the Qur’an with tajweed?” My teacher smiled and stated, “By reading lips.”
SubhanAllah walhamdulillah wa laa ilaaha illallaah wallahu Akbar! Glory be to Allah, all praise belongs to Him, He is the One God, and He is Great!
And so the question remains: What’s your excuse?
