    No Haafidh left behind!! Taraweeh Placement Initiative 2017

    The South African Qur’aan Union has launched an initiative titled, “No Haafidh left behind- Taraweeh 2017”, a campaign dedicated to giving every memorizer of the Qur’aan an opportunity to lead Taraweeh Salaah in a Masjid, permanent Musallah or a temporary Musallah established for this purpose.

    Through the online Reciters Database, a list of Huffaadh who are available to lead the Taraaweeh prayers during Ramadhaan 2017 will be established. This will provide venues across the country an opportunity to select Huffaadh, interact with them, and ultimately select who they would like to lead the Taraaweeh prayers at the respective venue.

    The initiative serves as a link- up platform for the benefit of Huffaath and Masjid committees. Any reciter/ Haafidh are welcome to request their details to be added on the list whereupon the Masjid may make direct contact with the respective reciter. The reciter has to be registered on the Reciters Database and supply an audio recording (of at least three minutes) that includes his full name and place of residence, the complete Surah Al Faatiha, as well as a short recitation from anywhere in the Qur’aan. Only reciters who have supplied the relevant details will be added to the list.
