SHAFAQNA – A competition on recitation of Adhan (call to prayers) was held in the Danish capital of Copenhagen on the weekend.
The Imam Ali (AS) Mosque in the city hosted the contest, whose aim was identifying young talents in recitation of Adhan, Qaaf news agency reported.
As many as 25 young Shias took part in the contest for an hour before Maghrib and Isha prayers.
According to Sayyid Yahya al-Husseini, an organizer, there are more such competitions planned to be held, including a contest on Tarteel and Tajweed recitation of the Quran.
They are aimed at promoting the Quranic and Islamic culture and identifying talented youth, he noted.
