The Lawh 

The lawh is a wood board that is used to teach Quran.  This is a very old and traditional method where the student copies from the instructor and practices the passage by reciting until fully memorized.


The students use an ink made from olive pits.  The passages are erased with chalk and water and then placed in the sun to dry.  


The pen is made of bamboo.  

We were very happy to learn about this traditional method of learning Quran and were especially excited to still find the old materials to do so.  

Please submit your traditional family projects so that we can learn from you!
