TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Al-Zahra (SA) Center of Quranic Sciences affiliated to the Astan (custodianship) of Imam Hussein’s (AS) holy shrine in Karbala, Iraq, honored a number of top Quranic members of the center.


According to the information office of the Astan, Sarwar Mahdi Abdullah, director of the center, said that the women were this year’s top Quran students of the center.

They successfully passed the courses of the center in the categories of Quran memorization, recitation and interpretation.

More than 20 students from different provinces of Iraq, as well as Nigeria and Saudi Arabia participate at the Quranic courses of the center, which was opened two years ago.

Quranic activities have significantly developed in Iraq since the 2003 overthrow of former dictator Saddam Hussein.

There has been a growing trend of Quranic programs such as competitions, recitation sessions and educational programs held in the country in recent years.
