TEHRAN (IQNA) – Deputy head of Iran’s Awqaf and Charity Affairs Organization said past experiences should be tapped into in order for best holding this year’s international Quran competition.

Abdol Reza Abed added that cooperation and contribution to the optimal organization of the competition is serving the Quran and Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS).

Past Experiences Should Be Used for Optimal Organization of Int’l Quran Contest

The 33rd edition of Iran’s International Holy Quran Competition is slated to be held on May 11-17.

Abed said 10 committees have been set up to make the necessary preparations for the contest.

The international Quranic event convenes Quran reciters and memorizers from around the Muslim world every year.

In 2015, 67 Quran reciters and 62 memorizers from 81 countries took part in the 32nd edition of the contest on May 15-22

22 Quran experts from Iran and other countries formed the jury panel of the contest.

This year’s event will be held at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini (RA) Mosalla (prayer hall).

Until last year, the Islamic Summit Hall in northern Tehran hosted the annual competition.
