    Black lettering is used for letters pronounced on their own — such as the P in Shop — and green for letters whose pronunciation is influenced by the letters that follow — such as the S in Shop. Silent letters are white with a black outline.

    Along the way, Khairulbashar developed a website, instructional CDs and workbooks for students and teachers to help pass along his work.

    The entire Qur'an is available on CD and can be downloaded for free from his website,, though donations are accepted.
