Iran is set to present the 31st edition of the country’s most important Qur'anic event, International Qur'an Competition, in the capital city of Tehran.
Many reciters and memorizers from over 65 countries have signed up to participate in the upcoming Holy Qur’an competition in Tehran.
Some nine committees have been launched to hold the event. They will also manage various activities scheduled for this year’s competition dubbed “Qur’an and Islamic lifestyle”.
A committee of 15 jurors including 5 Iranian and 10 foreign masters will judge the competition.
The annual competition is held to encourage the public to read the Holy Quran and to act upon the teachings of the Holy Quran.
More than 110 reciters and memorizers from 75 world countries took part in the last year’s Tehran international Quran competitions and displayed their talents.
Organized by Iran’s State Endowment and Charity Affairs Organization, the international event is scheduled to be held from May 26 to June 2.
