Rasoul Takbiri’s turn to showcase his Quranic talents at the international event was Friday.
He was asked by the panel of judges to recite from memory verses 21-29 of Surah Al Umran, 81-89 of Surah al-Tawba, 34-56 of Surah Shuara, and 2-8 of Surah Hashr.
Mo'taz Aghaei, the Iranian Quran expert who is accompanying Takbiri in the completion as a guide, told IQNA that the Iranian Quran memorizer’s performance was very good and successful.
He said Takbiri’s performance was lauded by the panel of judges and the audience in the competition hall.
Aghaei said he could not guess who the top winner of the contest will be since the level of performances has been very high.
