    South Africa hosts International Qur’aan Challenge (IQRA) 2016

    Excitement is mounting for the eagerly awaited International Qur’aan Recital Award (IQRA) that is due to take place from 22 to 25 September 2016 in Cape Town.

    The four- day occasion, which will see the participation of more than 60 Qurraa (Qur’aan reciters), is considered the biggest such gathering of its kind in the country. Regional programs were held earlier this year in Gauteng and Kwa- Zulu Natal to ensure that the most proficient of those participants could be earmarked for the Cape Town event.

    Foreign and Western Cape reciters, as well as those from other provinces will participate in their own preliminaries which will take place simultaneously with the main event.

    The program serves as an added encouragement for individuals to improve, and hence the aim of the IQRA is to promote and maintain high levels of Qur’anic learning and service, as well as to train and earmark successful local candidates for international platforms.
