The tight memorisation and tuneful recitation have attracted large crowds from different nationalities to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry where the contest sessions are held at 10pm every night, and until Ramadan 20.

Present at the night, co-sponsored by Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, Dubai Media Inc. and Union Cooperation, were the DIHQA chairman, deputy chairman, and members of the organising committee, along with senior members of the Thukhr community club, contestants and their assistants, and the public.

The second batch of competitors examined on Saturday night included Youcef Hamame, Algeria, Abdurahiman Zakirov, Kyrgyzstan, Abdulhamid Masoud, Tanzania, Jehad Younis, Jordan, Abdulla Husen, Nepal, Djamadine Mohamed, Union des Comores, Modou Jobe, Gambia, and Abdullah Hayri, Bulgaria.

“We exert our utmost to professionally and extensively telecast all the activities of the award to the entire world, and keep in touch with the organising committee to help make a success of its diverse programme.”

Naming the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud the Islamic personality of the year is a well-deserved honouring. “He spared no effort to serve the two holy mosques and facilitate the Haj and Umrah affairs for Muslims from across the globe.”

The Award organising committee, to attract more participants, has remarkably launched the Sheikha Fatima International Holy Quran Award for Quran female memorisers, he added.

“Both global competitions have been founded, supported and generously sponsored by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”
