On 12 June 2017, the Student Council members at the Deanship of Student Affairs organized a Quran Kareem Recitation Competition under the Patronage of Dr. Fareed Yaqoob AlMuftah, Deputy Minister of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments. Fourteen students out of 7 Bahraini Universities participated in the competition. The judging panel constituted from Dr Murad Al Janabi, Dr Ahmed Atallah, Dr Mwafaq Al Dalimi and Shaikh Khalil Bnshi who indeed did a great job in judging the participants.
Two students from ASU won the first and third place and the second place went to a student from Bahrain Polytechnic. The first prize is a trip to Makkah Al Mukramah awarded by Suhaib AlRumi Campaign, the second prize was 100 BD awarded by ASU and the third prize was BD 50 cash awarded by Al Salahi Real Estate. The event was extremely successful and everyone enjoyed the inspiring recitation from the students and guests. A massive “THANK YOU” message goes to Dr Murad and Dr Ahmed for running the competition so successfully and faultless and for Mr Mohammed Najjar and Hadeel for their great supervision.
