“These individuals and many others dedicated their lives for the Quran. It was with their hard work and sacrifices that allow us to enjoy the benefits of the Quran today at the tip of Africa,” said Shakyh Abdul Karim, principal of Jam’eyyatul Qurra boy’s campus.

“The students spend many years, reading, and articulating the Quran. This is event is a celebration for their hard work. The students will be tested by memory, by well-known Quran scholars; they have read 4-5 juz per a day,” adds Shakyh Karim.

The Tilaawatul Quran program will be taking place this week. The entire Quran will be read by not just Jam’eyyatul Qurra students but by many others from our community.

“On Friday our young hafitha will continue before and after jumah until about 7pm inshallah. The men will then conclude the Quran recitation the Saturday morning inshallah follow by dhikr inshallah.”
