The Sheikh al-Hussary Religious and Social Services Charity Society will organize the event on the 41st anniversary of the eminent qari’s demise, according to doctor.org website.
The ceremony will include a religious seminar and will be attended by the qari’s family members, friends and those who love his recitation.
Born on September 17, 1917, al-Husary was among the most prominent Quran reciters in Egypt.
He was the first Qari to release his Tarteel recitation of the entire Quran in cassettes.
Al-Hussary was elected the head of the Muslim World’s Union of Quran Reciters in 1968.
He was also the Sheikh al-Qurra (top qari) of Egypt and headed an Al-Azhar committee for proofreading Quran copies before printing.
He died on November 24, 1980, during a trip to Kuwait.
In his will, Al-Hussary left one-third of his properties for charity and thus, one of his sons founded the Sheikh al-Hussary Religious and Social Services Charity Society.
