No fewer that 10 Quranic reciters will represent Edo State in the forthcoming National Quranic Competition slated for December 28 to January 5 in Gombe State.

The Coordinator Edo State Quoranic Competition ( Musabagah), sheik Ibrahim Oyarekhua, said this Sunaday at the Otaru Palace in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government of the state while speaking with Journalist shortly after the state Quoranic competition.


He said 104 reciters participated in the competition while 60 emerged winners in six categories, but that 10 reciters will represent the state at the National Quoranic Competition.


“The essence of the camp is to lecture them seriously on the categories they are going to feature in the competition. We will invite the national judges from the North to help us train them. The reason for this is to allow better hands to have one on one touch with them. This has always given us improvement on the level of our performance and we have been winning prices since we came on board,” he said.


Also speaking ,the Otaru of Auchi said ” Recitation of the Quran is an entertainment, if you have in your heart when it is being read whether you understand the language or not, it give you the good pleasure of Almighty Allah when you heard it being recited and it goes to the root of the  heart”.

He expressed hope  that the participant will come with laurels from the competition.

On his part, an Islamic scholar, Abdulfatai Enabulele, said the competition  is aimed at maintaining the standard of Islam in the state so that  children would be able to memorise and understand the message of Allah as contained in the Holy Quoran.
