Well-known Iraqi Quran reciter dies at 78

SHAFAQNA- Iqna: On Sunday, the prominent Quranic figure of Iraq, Sheikh Walid Ibrahim al-Abduli al-Daylami, died in a hospital in the northern city of Erbil after a long illness.

His body has been taken to the city of Ramadi in central Iraq for burial, according to Qaaf news agency.

Born in 1941, al-Daylami started learning the Quran by heart at an early age and managed to become a memorizer in two years.

He then began to learn Quran recitation and soon become a famous Qari.

Quranic activities are very common in the Arab country and have been growing since the 2003 overthrow of former dictator Saddam Hussein.
