    The semi-finals of the National Al-Quran Reading Competition for Adults began at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Berakas yesterday.

    The four-day semi-final contest has 41 Qari and 13 Qariah competing to reach the finals.

    Thirty four were selected as participants from the district level Al-Quran reading competition for mosques, suraus and religious halls held at the start of November.

    Ten participants are those who obtained a score of 80 per cent and above for three consecutive years in previous contests at the semi-final level and the remaining participants had previously won or had reached the finals.

    The competition, held by the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA), serves as a platform to encourage Al-Quran literacy and Islamic practice.

    It is also a starting point for national Qari and Qariah to step onto the regional and international level for Al-Quran reading.

    Acting Director of the Administration Department, MoRA Haji Mohd Shamsul Riza bin Haji Sulaiman was present.
