THE HOLY QURAN RECITATION COMPETITION 2024
 Sunday, March 3rd | 10 AM - 1 PM
 

The annual Quranic Recitation Competition is a way to encourage our students to not only recite verses from the Quran by memory but be able to understand what they are reciting or reading. This is why along with tajweed (pronunciation), students will be judged on ability to translate.

The competition will be held in two different sessions divided as follows:

Lower Level: Grades 1-6:

MEMORIZATION OF SELECTED SURAHS WITH MEANING


Students should use Juz Amma for Arabic and meanings
