Why Quran Day?

In many western societies there are widespread misconceptions and misunderstandings about the Quran and its Message. At the same time, the demand for a better understanding about the Quran is increasing every day, by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Therefore, it was suggested that a day should be selected as Quran Day. The purpose of Quran Day is to observe and spread the peaceful message of the glorious Quran, and to share it with Muslim and non-Muslim friends and neighbors.

The first Friday of March in every year was chosen to be observed as “Quran Day”. All Muslims are encouraged to play an active role in the observance of Quran Day and spreading the message of Allah to both Muslims and non-Muslims.
