    THE first of the three-day National Adult Al-Quran Reading Competition semi-final began at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Berakas yesterday.

    This year will see 56 participating in the semi-finals. Of that figure, 26 were selected through the Al-Quran Reading Competition (District Level), while the remaining 30 were participants of last year’s Al-Quran Reading Competition (National Adult) semi-final.

    The competition aims to encourage Qari and Qariah to improve their reading of Al-Quran and to gain the public interest in learning the proper techniques of Al-Quran reading.
