I think it gives a taste of something good, but does not follow through, and could have been so much more meaningful and long-lasting in my opinion.

Therefore, I was excited to see what this book had to offer in possibly easing the journey in becoming a hafiza (a Muslim woman who has memorised the entire Quran) and what it had to say especially about a Muslim woman’s journey with the Qur’an.
