Fremont Library Displays Collection of the Holy Qur’an
By Abdus Sattar Ghazali

Fremont Library is displaying a collection of the Qur’an during the fasting month of Ramadan.

Reza Sadiq, a community activist, has initiated this exhibition that began on July 5. It will continue till August 10.

A collection of the Qur’an with English translations is being displayed at two prime locations of the Fremont Library.

Visitors find the first exhibit in the wall-mounted big show case just before the entrance to the Library. The second display is at the entrance of the Library main hall.

According to Reza Sadiq, the idea to initiate the Qur’an’s display was to expose Islam's holy book to fellow Americans that may help in removing misgivings and misunderstandings about the Islamic faith that remains under attack by certain quarters in the post-9/11 America.

Reza Sadiq said that the Library management appreciated  the idea of displaying the Holy Qur’an during the fasting month of Ramadan. "The management also appreciated that I volunteered to provide my personal collection for the display," he added.

The English translations of the Qur’an on display include translations by Abdullah Yousuf, Sheikh Sarwar of New Jersey, Prof. Wiqar Ahmed and Yasin Al Jibouri.
