03 Jun 2500 Quran Memorizers Receive Certificates in Turkey Annually
Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah,
Alhamdulillah, today I’d love to share this beneficial article that a number of sisters forwarded to me during the past few days.
An official with Turkey’s Religious Affairs Department said that every year some 2500 individuals receive Quran memorization certificates after attending the country’s summer Quran classes.
Ekrem Keles said that some 270000 individuals participate in the annual Quran classes held in mosques across Turkey, 2500 of whom receive memorization certificates.
In order to raise the number of Quran memorizers of the country, the department makes every effort to improve the quality of the summer classes, he noted.
The Quran classes are annually held by the Religious Affairs Department for kids and teenagers.
