Concept of God in Hinduism

Hotel Qur’an Project: How You Can Help Us

November 20th, 2004 by admin

As part of the Hotel Qur’an Project, we recently sent 320 copies of the Holy Qur’an (example here) to Hilton Hotel, located at KL Sentral, to be placed in their rooms. Alhamdulillah, it was a success.

Since this Project was started in 1998, there has been many new requests/replenishment requests from hotels all around Malaysia for free copies of the Qur’an. However, we do need donations to meet the demands of these requests.

We would like to see more participation from Muslims to get involved in this Project, in which we sent out free copies of the Qur’an to selected 5-star and 4-star hotels to be placed in their rooms. The intention is to clearly give an opportunity for visitors to these hotels to read the Qur’an for themselves and see that Islam is a religion of peace and terrorism is not part of true Qur’anic teachings. Contributions in form of monetary or volunteerism is certainly most welcome.Please download our Contribution Sheet [.pdf format, requires Adobe Acrobat Reader] for more details on how you can participate in the Project.
