CMCC Quran Competition Ramadan 1444

Jointly funded by: Ahmed Khadadah’s Holy Quran Award and Canterbury Mosque

Ramadan is the month of Allah

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ ۚ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ ۖ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ ۗ يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلَا يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ. سورة البقرة (آية 185)

The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful. (2:185)

  • [General]: Can I participate with the same pages/Surah from my previous participation last year or the year before?
    • If you choose to participate this year with the same Quran pages or surahs from last year, you will lose 10% of your score. This is to ensure fair competition and to encourage you to memorise something new.
  • [General]: Is there a consideration for those who are not fluent in Arabic?
    • Consideration during marking will be given to those who are not fluent in Arabic.
  • [General]: When will the competitions take place?
    • After Ramadan, to be announced.
  • [General]: Can I participate in more than one category/level?
    • No.
  • [General]: Do I have to recite the Quran with Tajweed in the competitions?
    • Tajweed is part of reading the Quran. However, the panel recognises the difference among languages and some tajweed mastering difficulties.
    • Thus, the main factor in the competition is memorisation, as long as there are no major mistakes in reading or changing words. Tajweed may be used as a “Tiebreaker” when two contestants got the same memorisation score.
    • We will be running weekly reading sessions online to help those who want to learn how to recite Quran properly. Please attend and encourage others to do so.
  • [Children]: What are the age groups for children’s competition?
    • We have 4 age groups [5->6] [7->9] [10->12] and [13->15]
  • [Children]: How will the different ages of participants be managed?
    • The participants in each level will be grouped into 4 age brackets. Thus, each child will compete with others of the same age. In case, that was not possible due to practicality, the panel will consider that during marking.
  • [Children]: What are the required 3 short surahs?
    • [112: Al-Ikhlaas], [113: Al-Falaq] and [114: Al-Naas].
  • [Children]: What are the required 6 short surahs?
    • Choose 6 surahs from [103: Al-‘Asr] to [114: Al-Naas].
  • [Children]: What are the required last 5 pages from Juz’ Amma?
    • From page #600 to page #604 i.e. from surah [101: Al-Qaari’ah] to [114: Al-Naas].
