His father told that he encouraged his son by rewarding him for every few pages of the Quran he memorized. Initially, this meant that Rashad acquired a new soccer ball and other toys. Ultimately, he became the proud owner of a brand new bike.

Eventually, however, Rashad became keen on learning the Quran on his own. He was encouraged by his parents, neighbors and teachers. At the event, attended by a large number of Gaza dignitaries and scholars, Rashad was certified as a Hafiz, receiving a special present and his own special copy of the Quran.
