Let the Quran Speak is an installation that speaks about the fundamental of Islam. Quran itself literally means "recitation", thus recitation of the Quran forms an important part of many life rituals, from birth to funerals. Since the prophet was illiterate, he learned, recited and passed down the revelation orally. To this day, the oral tradition of the Quran has always been in place. The sound emphasises on the transition of voices reciting the opening verse of the Quran.

The sand is also an important material in the work. With an installation, the space becomes the material, becomes its center, like a means to another world. Let the Quran Speak invites the viewer to put on the headphone and listen while being carried away into the past history of Islam.
