Dr. Faramarzi said the Holy Quran is unique because of its sanctimonious character as it is the same everywhere across the world and that it is difficult to interpolate because of its universality and unique identity. He called on Muslims worldwide to know their religion as a way of knowing Allah.
In his remarks, the Managing Director of the Institute Mr. Alieu Badara Sesay reiterates that the Holy Quran is mysterious as many people around the world have memorized it without having the slightest understanding of the Arabic language.
Mr. Sesay disclosed that the competition is open to the general public and the competition will have three categories, Memorization of the Whole Quran (30 juzu), Half of the Quran (15 Juzu) and the last ten Suras for Children.
