Our Journey as a family towards memorisation of the Qur'aan


Assalaamu alaikum,

Heres a lovely documentary, “Qur’an by Heart” about children from around the world taking part in the annual Cairo International Holy Qur’an Competition.  Its for children that have memorised the entire Qur’aan.  They’re sat in front of a special computer that selects a random portion which they then must recite (with correct tajweed) before a group of scholars from Al-Azhar and an audience.

It  follows three Muslim youths — Nabiollah from Tajikistan, Rifdha from the Maldives, and Djamil from Senegal — as they enter into an annual Koran-reciting competition in Cairo, Egypt. The competition attracts hundreds of Muslims from all over the world, many of whom don’t speak Arabic, but are able to recite the entire 600-page Koran — and beautifully.
