  3. There will also be some questions to recite parts of the Qur’an by heart.
  4. General Information about the Qur’an. An example can be found here.

All students will receive prizes, however, there will be special prizes for the winners. There will also be some questions for the audience and families too to get them engaged. The program will end around 8-8:15 PM Insha’Allah so we can get ready for Iftar and Maghrib prayer.
