Jamaats are being invited to enter a competition to foster knowledge and love of the Holy Qur’an.
On the 14th-16th June 2019, the KSIMC Birmingham will be holding the second Lady Fizza Qur’an Competition (LFQC), and the competition will be open to all Jamaats under CoEJ.
Open to all
LFQC 2019 will take place in Birmingham with an opportunity for everyone aged 5 and over to participate. So far, there have been 200 applicants for the competition, coming from Birmingham, Leicester, London, Leeds, Wessex, Peterborough and Switzerland.
The event is being supported by both the World Federation and CoEJ. This involves financial support, as well as help from a number of donors.
Inspired by AFED, the KSIMC of Birmingham held its first Lady Fizza Qur’an Competition in 2018. It was a huge success, with more than 70 participants. The weekend of the competition was inspirational and brought our whole community together.
Love of the Holy Qur’an
The objective of LFQC competitions is to bring awareness to the treasures of the Holy Qur’an and inculcate the love of the Holy Qur’an in the children, youth and adults of our community. There are categories based on a number of age groups up to 16, and for adults.
Participants will compete in various recitation categories:
- hifz, where participants are given chapters to memorise and will be asked a selection on the day;
- tasfir, where participants are given 10-15 verses months in advance and asked about details of two of those verses; and
- open recitation, where participants will recite either given chapters or passages from anywhere in the Qur’an.
The event will help to facilitate the spread of the knowledge of the Qur’an. This carries worldly benefits and, most importantly, eternal reward for the hereafter.
