As the third leg of commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the Tilawatul Quran Competitions, on the 16th of September 2018, the Girls’ Qirath Team organised Tilaawatul Quran 2018 Students Challenge for Madrasah As-Soabereen’s Bishan Branch children at Masjid An-Nahdhah.
The students were challenged to recite various Surahs from the Quran with their melodious voices, which they were comfortable to recite in the stage. The different levels of categories were as follows:
◊ Kindergarten Category: K1 & K2
◊ Lower Primary Category: P1 & P2
◊ Middle Primary Category: P3 & P4
◊ Upper Primary Category: P5 & P6
◊ Secondary Girls
Each category had reciters who have participated in the previous years and first-timers as well. Therefore, the talented competitors faced a stiff competition. However, all of them confidently recited to the best of their ability.
The participants were assessed on their Pronunciation of the Arabic Letters, their Tajweed application and their Tarannum modification as per to their recitation. After each participant’s recitation, the moderators of the event also stepped in to share more about the Quran verses that were being recited, which enriched the audience. Insha Allah, may we all reflect upon the Quran verses often.
Towards the end of each session, the Bishan Qirath students performed to a meangful nasheed titled, “Salat Al Badriyya” whilst the winners list was being prepared.
Alhamdulillah, the event came to a close with all the participants receiving medals and trophies. In Sha Allah, we hope to inspire many more young talents to become future Qari and Qariah for the sake of Allah!
اَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُوْنَ الْقُرْاٰنَ اَمْ عَلٰى قُلُوْبٍ اَ قْفَالُهَا
Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an, or are there locks upon [their] hearts?
Surah Muhammad : Verse 24
