Russian reciters participate in Kuwait International Award for the Holy Quran The 9th Kuwait International Award for the Holy Quran  was held on 11-18 April under the auspices of His Highness the Emir of Kuwait Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, organized by the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs of Kuwait. This year, 139 readers from 79 countries participated in the contest, where they competed in four nominations: knowledge of the full text of the Holy Quran; knowledge of the full text of the Holy Qur'an by ten readings; skilful sight reading of the Quran; The best technological project in the sphere of the Quranic sciences.

Our country was represented by two reciters of the Holy Quran: Gadzhimurad Magomedov, a graduate of the Centre for the preparation of hafizs  at the Russian Islamic Institute in Kazan, who participated in the nomination "knowledge of the full text of the Holy Quran" and in the nomination "Tilawah "( skillful sight reading of the Quran), and Kudratullo Dodarbeg, a Qur'an teacher in the madrasah of Karabudakhkent village in Dagestan.

Our participants performed well, while competing with the best Qur'an reciters from around the world, and their efforts were highly appreciated by the judges.

It should be mentioned that during the event one of our reciters passed a qualification exam to obtain confirmation of his competence level in Qur’an reciting with one of the judges, a scholar of Qur'anic sciences. Meetings and consultations with prominent scholars in this field represent another opportunity for our reciters who take part in international contests, since such events bring together highly-qualified, world-renowned professionals in the area of Qur'anic sciences.

The Russia Mufties Council has been working with the foreign ministries of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs for many years to send Russian reciters of the Qur'an to international contests of the Holy Quran, which helps to create positive image of the Russian Muslims in the international community .
