South African National Qiraa’atul Qur’aan Competition 2016

The South African Qur’aan Union has once again teamed up with AWQAF SA and Madrasah Tarteelul Qur’aan to host the annual South African National Qiraa’atul Qur’aan Competition. Entries are now open for this prestigious event, which will take place at the Bosmont Masjid (Gauteng) on 14 May 2016 and Madrasah Tarteelul Qur’aan (Pietermaritzburg) on 28 May, respectively.


The Gauteng leg of the competition (which includes all provinces except KZN and WC) is open to all willing male and female participants of any nationality whilst the KZN edition is open to males only.

Contestants will be evaluated on their ability to present and recite the Qur’aan beautifully, and not on their memorization skills alone, hence participants need not have memorised the Qur’aan in order to compete. There is no entry fee and all are welcome to attend and participate.
