A pilgrim from Kaduna state, Malam AbdurRahman Ahmad Salis, has won a Qur’anic recitation competition organised at the Grand Mosque in Makka, Saudi Arabia.
Malam AbdurRahman had earlier won the Maltina National Qur’anic Recitation Competition.
Speaking to journalists in Saudi Arabia, the Chairman of Kaduna State Standing Committee on Qur’anic Recitation, Dr. Bello AbdulKadir, said that the 24 year old AbduRrahman has done the nation proud in the Holy Land.
According to him, AbduRrahman was sponsored for Hajj because he came tops during the last Maltina National Qur’anic Recitation Competition but enrolled for a special programme at the Grand Mosque after the pilgrimage.
Dr. Abdulkadir said that the programme included reciting the Qur’an in the correct phonology and studying the science of the Holy Book.
