By Hafizah Saadia Mian, Daybreak Press, paperback 156 pages
If you've ever sighed wistfully upon hearing of someone memorizing the Quran, wishing it was something you could do, too, then prepare to replace that wistfulness with determination!
Filled with inspirational stories for your heart and memorization techniques for your mind, The Crowning Venture reminds us that memorizing the Quran is not an achievement to be conquered, it's a journey to savour. A journey YOU can make.
"The Crowning Venture is a groundbreaking look into the story of women's Quran memorization. We are given a personal glimpse into Dr Mian's own story and then are introduced to a number of women who touch our hearts and inspire us to do better. The reader begins to "see" the presence of Hafizat in her community, and new horizons are opened as "become a Hafiza" is added to her life ambitions." - Tamara Gray, Founder of Rabata
