Sultan: Holy Quran Academy is not limited to being a museum

His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, affirmed that the Holy Quran Academy in Sharjah is not limited to being a museum that houses pictures and manuscripts, but rather a place that is rich in many activities and programmes that serve the Holy Quran and those interested and working in the Quranic field. 

This came during the speech delivered by His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah, Thursday morning, at the opening of the Holy Quran Academy in Sharjah, in the presence of Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, and Sheikh Abdullah bin Salem bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah.

His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah indicated that 323 male and female students, from 101 countries are enrolled in the global electronic maqra’ in the Academy, supervised by 18 reciters on all the isnads (references), 227 of whom memorised the Quran, and were rewarded. Among these students is one from the North Pole, which reflects the efficacy and wide spread of the Academy.

His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah called on community members to visit the Holy Quran Academy in Sharjah and familiarise themselves with the various stages of the evolution of the writing of the Noble Quran from the dawn of Islam to our current era, and to benefit from its activities and programmes, including the global electronic Maqari’a programme.
