Ramadan Mubarak – #Quran Tweeting

Tonight, Aug. 21, 2009, is the first night of Ramadan 1430. I suggested that we Tweet the Qur’an during this time, with the tag #Quran. Since then, Aziz picked up the idea at City of Brass, Gary Bunt mentioned it on Virtually Islamic, and there was a mention in an article from Canada. There has been huge interest on Twitter, and I hope people will take part. Any event usually begins with the first chapter of the Qur’an, al-Fatiha, in its entirety. Rather than Tweet it, I thought I would put it here.

In the Name of God, The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful
All praise is due to God, Lord of Creation
The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful
The Lord of the Day of Judgment
You alone we worship; You alone we seek for help
Guide us to the right path
The path of the blessed ones
not the cursed ones, nor the lost ones   

More coming on Twitter. You can follow me here, and the #Quran tag here.
