Meaning of Al-Otrojah

حَدَّثَنَا هُدْبَةُ بْنُ خَالِدٍ أَبُو خَالِدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا هَمَّامٌ، حَدَّثَنَا قَتَادَةُ، حَدَّثَنَا أَنَسٌ، عَنْ أَبِي مُوسَى، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ مَثَلُ الَّذِي يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَالأُتْرُجَّةِ طَعْمُهَا طَيِّبٌ وَرِيحُهَا طَيِّبٌ وَالَّذِي لاَ يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَالتَّمْرَةِ طَعْمُهَا طَيِّبٌ وَلاَ رِيحَ لَهَا، وَمَثَلُ الْفَاجِرِ الَّذِي يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَمَثَلِ الرَّيْحَانَةِ رِيحُهَا طَيِّبٌ وَطَعْمُهَا مُرٌّ، وَمَثَلُ الْفَاجِرِ الَّذِي لاَ يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَمَثَلِ الْحَنْظَلَةِ طَعْمُهَا مُرٌّ وَلاَ رِيحَ لَهَا‏"‏‏  (صحيح البخاري)

The Prophet () said, "The example of him (a believer) who recites the Qur'an is like that of a citron which tastes good and smells good. And he (a believer) who does not recite the Qur'an is like a date which is good in taste but has no smell. And the example of a dissolute wicked person who recites the Qur'an is like the Raihana (sweet basil) which smells good but tastes bitter. And the example of a dissolute wicked person who does not recite the Qur'an is like the colocynth which tastes bitter and has no smell."


Al-Otrojah project started in the early eighties in collaboration with the Association of Muslim Youth in Al-Menya, Egypt.  Al-Otrojah School utilizes a well-structured program that adopts an efficient, easy-to-follow method which helped thousands of students and scholars achieve solid memorization of the Holy Quran, and get their "Sanad Ejaza" of the Holy Quran of Hafs from Asem from the way of Shatebya.  

The huge success of the school in Egypt enabled the spreading of these centres in Kuwait, as 25 branches are fully operating today all across Kuwait. We are proud to be part of Muslim Association of Canada and share our success story with the Canadian Muslim Community.  


A specialized Quranic center for excellent and easy memorizing of the Holy Quran and learning the rules of Tajweed and a simplified understanding of meanings, available and widespread among all Muslim communities in Canada. 


To facilitate solid& easy memorizing of the Holy Quran, learn Tajweed comprehensively and deeply, and facilitate a simplified understanding of the Quranic meanings, for all Muslim Canadians.
