Qaisar al-Dujaili, head of the Astan’s Quran Center, said the course has been held in coordination with the PMU’s ideological department, Qafqn.org website reported.
He said the teaching staff of the PMU ideological department have taken the course.
It is aimed at enhancing their Quranic skills and knowledge and exchange Quranic experiences, al-Dujaili stated.
The 7-day course features lessons on Tajweed, Sawt (melodious voice) and Lahn (rhythm), he noted.
He went on to say that top qaris of the Astan supervise the Quranic course.
The PMU is a government-sponsored umbrella organization composed of around 40 factions of volunteer counter-terrorism forces, including mostly Shia Muslim groups like Asa’ib, besides Sunni Muslims, Christians and Kurds.
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.
