SHAFAQNA – The Iranian Cultural Center in the Philippines organized a Quran memorization competition at the Blue Mosque in Manila, the capital city.
According to the center, the “Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)” Dar-ol-Quran at the blue mosque hosted the Quranic event on October 21.
The Friendship Association of Iran and the Philippines cooperated in organizing the competition.
More than 50 students of the Dar-ol-Quran, aged 12 to 18, competed in the memorization of one, two and three Juzes (parts) of Quran.
