I had wanted to get an Islamic writing board to bring home and show American children what is used in Muslim schools in Sierra Leone to teach Arabic and learn passages from the Qur’an. No one was willing to part with theirs so I bought a new one and found someone who would trade their used one for it. After doing so, the father of the students who used the board, took it home and carefully cleaned off all the writing. Since I had wanted the writing on it, I asked if this was possible and he kindly had his children come and write passages from the Qua’an on it for me.
