Sharjah24: His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, has assigned Al Qasimia University to carry out a project to create Quranic schools throughout Africa.
The memorization and teaching of the Quran, together with the care of those who study and memorise it, shall be the primary goals of these institutions. Additionally, these institutions will employ the university's graduates to spread Quranic studies throughout the countries they represent.
His Highness announced the initiative entrusted to Al Qasimia University during his speech this morning, Wednesday, in the presence of Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and Chairman of the Sharjah Media Council, during a ceremony honouring the reciters who completed the exclusive Quranic recitations recorded and produced by Sharjah Quran Radio. Nine renowned reciters from the Islamic world were honoured for their mastery of recitation and the beauty of their voices.
During the ceremony at Dr. Sultan Al Qasimi's Centre, His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah approved the proposal to launch a television channel dedicated to the Holy Quran. This channel will feature all Quran-related studies, interpretations, affairs, scholars, and reciters. This channel will supplement Sharjah's efforts and endeavours to serve the Holy Quran, Islamic affairs, and culture. His Highness highlighted that caring for the Holy Quran, as well as honouring those who care for it, emphasises the Book of Allah's grand stature and the significance placed on its memorizers and reciters.
He stated that caring for the Quran involves not just its physical existence on pages but also maintaining it in hearts and adhering to its noble and moderate teachings, which highlight good manners and adherence to what pleases Almighty Allah. His Highness emphasised the important initiatives carried out by Quranic institutions and bodies in Sharjah, which resulted in a rise in Quran memorizers, mosque upkeep by continual remembering, and the understanding of the Quran and its studies. He lauded the work of individuals in charge of Sharjah's Quranic institutes.
The renowned reciters expressed gratitude for His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi's support, care, and patronage of the Holy Quran, its scholars, and readers. They thanked His Highness for fulfilling their desire to record a complete and well-recited Quran, which took several years to finish before its dissemination, benefiting both the reciters, the workers involved, and the listeners. His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah recognised the honourees, who are well-known among Islamic reciters for their proficient recitation, and awarded them with certificates. He congratulated them for their efforts and wished them prosperity and a generous reward from Allah Almighty.

The recorded Quranic recitations are broadcast on Sharjah Quran Radio. Some reciters required many years to complete their recitations, which went through different levels of verification, evaluation during and after recording, technical editing, and final review by scholars competent in Qira'at and Tajwid. The beneficiaries of these recitations were chosen among the reciters for their outstanding performance and competence in Tajwid standards. Their recitations were recorded according to the Hafs's recitation of Asim.
The following dignitaries joined His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and the Deputy Ruler of Sharjah during the ceremony: Dr Khalifa Al Tunaiji, Chairman of the Holy Quran Academy in Sharjah; Jamal Al Tarifi, President of Al Qasimia University; Abdullah Bin Yarouf Al-Sabousi, Director of the Department of Islamic Affairs; and Sultan Matar bin Dalmouk, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Holy Quran and Sunnah Foundation in Sharjah.
