The Crowning Venture was the winner of the International Book Awards - Religion, General.
If you've ever sighed wistfully upon hearing of someone memorizing the Qur'aan, 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 Qur'aan is not an achievement to be conquered, it's a journey to savour. A journey YOU can make!
Have a look at the accompanying Crowning Venture Journal!
"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 the Hafizat in her community and new horizons are opened as "become a Hafiza" is added to her life ambitions."
"Like many of the women in The Crowning Venture, memorizing Quran was not something I thought I was capable of. But after reading their stories, I've packed a good bit of reading practice, some supportive friends and lots of du'as and I'm headed out on my own crowning venture."
- Najiah Maxfield, Author of Sophia's Journal
