TEHRAN (IQNA) – Efforts are underway to prepare the Imam Khomeini (RA) Mosalla (prayer hall) for hosting the 35th edition of Iran’s International Quran Competition.


Like last year, the Mosalla will be the venue of the international Quranic event this year.

The competition will be held on April 19-26 with the participation of Quran reciters and memorizers from 83 countries.

Earlier this week, Hojat-ol-Islam Ali Mohammadi, Head of the Awqaf and Charity Affairs Organization, which annually holds the contest, told IQNA that four other international Quranic events will also be organized simultaneously.

They include the international Quran competition for seminary students, the cleric noted.

The other three, he said, are the Quran competitions for women, school students and the visually-impaired.

According to the official, a total of 300 foreign Quran activists will attend the international Quranic events.

Another official with the Awqaf Organization said on Thursday that a Quranic and cultural exhibition will be mounted on the sidelines of the contests, offering Quranic products, cultural programs and cultural and religious consultations.
