Iran to host 35th Intl. Holy Quran Contest in April

TEHRAN, Apr. 18 (MNA) – Head of Endowment and Charity Affairs Organization Ali Mohammadi said that 370 reciters and memorizers from 84 countries will participate in 35th International Holy Quran Competitions on April 19-26 in Tehran.

Speaking in a news conference, Mohammadi pointed to the orders and commands of pure religion of Islam for all Muslims across the world and said, “pure religion of Islam has defined specific instruction for anyone individually, so that these heavenly orders should be acted precisely.”

In addition to the individual orders, subjects have been imposed as a collective and group rules for Muslims, so that obeying these types of rules is necessary for all, he maintained.

He pointed to the slogan of this year’s competition of Holy Quran entitled “One Nation, One Book” and said, ‘unfortunately, enemies of Islam raise the individual rules and regulations, rather, Islamic social rules are much more important.”

In fact, if a person is indifferent to others, he or she is not duly called ‘Muslim’, he reiterated.

Today, the main problem of Islamic Ummah is this that these people do not act based on Quranic instructions, Mohammadi reiterated.

Elsewhere in his remarks, head of Endowment and Charity Affairs Organization pointed to the organizing 35th round of International Holy Quran Competitions and added, “in this edition of the competitions, representatives of 84 countries will take part in five sections of the competitions concurrently.

A Quranic Research Seminar will also be held on the sidelines of this round of competition, he said, adding, “International Quranic Researches Seminar will be held today in the holy city of Qom, so that 1,115 domestic and foreign articles have thus far been sent to the Secretariat of the Seminar at large.”

In conclusion, Mohammadi said that the Holy Quran belongs to the Islamic Establishment and called on all responsible officials to take effective steps for better organizing this round of competitions.
