At Red Kufi Books our mission is to call people back to the first verse revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) with the command of Iqra or Read! The instruction to read is incumbent upon us. To read is to acquire knowledge. To gain knowledge is to learn and without learning, how would we teach? To learn is to free the mind. Read, reason and reflect.
Our campaign #bewellread, calls people back to the first Qur’anic injunction #callto1stverse.
In this section we feature various personalities and their understanding of that very first command to mankind. What does it mean to be well read? Why is reading so fundamental to our existence?
Why do you read? What does it mean to you to #bewellread?
