Qur’an gets celebrated

All praise is due to Allah, The most Gracious, The Most Merciful

We have had the opportunity to conduct our annual Qua’an recitation competition on the 16th and 17th May 2017, Alhamdulillah.

Students from both the Primary and Secondary classes competed in this event. Around 175 students gave confident and beautiful recitations from the many different surahs of the Holy Qur’an.

This year, our students were judged by well renowned scholars in our community, Namely Moulana Muhammad Aslam of Algester Masjid, Mufti Najem of Darra Masjid and Hafiz Yakub of Algester Islamic Society.

Preparations for the annual Qur’’an competition had commenced well before the end of the first term. Eight students from each class were selected on Merit. Surahs were allocated to them based on their level of self –confidence.

Intensive practice was arranged for each student together with the help of their parents and their local madrassas. Class teachers further assisted in providing extra help from the relevant Imams. On the days of competition a good number of parents from our college community attended to witness one of the largest events on our school calendar. The judges acknowledged that the standard of recitation and memorisation , especially that of our lower primary students were amazing & unprecedented. Each participant was awarded a certificate of participation. The winners were awarded with a medal, a trophy and a winning level of certificate.

The whole school experienced a day of joy and enlightenment from this great celebration of the Holy Qur’an. We all look forward to making our next annual Qur’an competition even bigger and better, InshaAllah.
