History of Kuran Competition

The KURAN COMPETITION began in 1977. The primary objective of the competition was and still is to encourage everyone to read , understand and practice AL-ISLAM. The participants during the early years were my three sons and seven daughters;they were some members of Masjid Khalifah and some other Masjids. Over the years, as things began to develop, many Masjids sent theirs members. We have had participants from immigrants and indigenous communities. The competition was advertised by letters to various Masjids . These Masjids made weekly announcements, and kept informing its members about the upcoming event and its importance with such emphasis being presented to the communities over the years, the Competition has grown by leaps and bounds. The last five years , the competition has had school buses , and Vans transporting participants. With the influx of various communities ; the prizes have now been moved to financial incentives ; for example the grand prize for over 5 years $1000.00 open category, plus trophies, AZAN clocks, medals and many more encouraging rewards .
