Students’ Qur’an Competition 2023


In the Name of Allah, The Compassionate, the Merciful

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the universe, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon our master prophet Muhammad (saww), his pure progeny, and his chosen companions.
The Holy Qur’an plays a great role in setting man and society on the straight path of salvation. There are many Qur’anic verses and blessed narrations that emphasized the importance of studying the Holy Qur’an and grasping the depth of its secrets and of commanding Allah’s servants to adhere to the Qur’an because it is His complete word and His complete will for mankind at all times and places: “And this Book that We have sent down is a blessed one; so, follow it and be Godwary so that you may receive (His) mercy”

So, whoever wants to reach to, and receive Allah’s bounties he/she only has to follow His path and be guided by His guidance, and whoever is guided is guided only by Him, and whoever deviates, goes astray.
The global challenges that the Islamic nation (ummah) is facing today, and the cultural invasion that surrounds it from every direction, makes the Holy Qur’an the best reference and guide, and a source of enlightened thought that saves man’s spirituality, entity and existence, and maintains his spiritual connection with the Almighty Allah; the Exalted Truth. And in the same vein, the Noble Messenger (saww) said: “If you want to enjoy the life of the happy, attain the death of martyrs, survive on the day of worries, have the shade on a hot day, guidance in times of deviation then study the Qur’an, for it is the speech of Allah the Most Merciful, a shield from Satan, and a positive load in the scale”.
And emphasizing the importance of learning and teaching the Qur’an, Al-Mustafa Islamic College has launched, since its establishment, the teaching of the Holy Qur’an, introducing its students to elite professors specialized in the field of teaching the Qur’an, reading and memorizing it besides its various related sciences.

Amidst the current challenge of the pandemic, Al-Mustafa Islamic college, in Ramadan last year 2022, held a major Quranic competition of its kind, with the participation of 120 male and female students from secondary schools and institutions of higher learning.
In these competitions, the college seeks to provide a rich Islamic heritage to students and to encourage them to engage in recitation and memorization of the Noble Qur’an, and to provide the skills of learning how to read the Qur’an to facilitate its sustainability in the Ugandan Muslim community.
The designed categories include Qur’an Research, Memorization of the complete Qur’an, followed by memorization of fifteen parts, ten parts; for males and females, in addition to items of Presentation, Dua Concept explanation, 40 Words of Wisdom and the book Nahj al-Balagha.

The competition will attract a total of 60 secondary schools and institutions of higher learning. This will enhance the effectiveness of Quranic work at all levels and promote its luminous purposes.
We thank Allah for everything.
