Jaber sees Rawwan as a divine gift, bringing her great pride and honor. From a young age, Rawwan displayed remarkable intelligence, quickly memorizing short surahs taught by her mother. She excelled academically, attending school from the age of six and progressing up to the seventh grade.

Although Rawwan faced challenges with pronunciation due to her condition, her mother recounts how she learned through auditory methods.
