INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN SSI INTER-SCHOOL QURAN MEMORISATION COMPETITION 2023

The Arabic and Islamic Studies Department of Seven Skies Islamic International School wishes to invite you to participate in the 2ND SSI Inter-school Quran Memorisation Competition, which is scheduled to be held on Saturday, 25 February 2023.

Our objective is to help the reader connect strongly with Allah’s word (Al-Qur’an). As Quran teachers, we are all aware that revision and retention of the Quran play a vital and essential role in the journey to memorising the entire Quran.

Thus, let us come together to increase in attachment and promotion of the word of Allah. By doing this, we will be doing a great service for Islam, ourselves, and the Ummah at large.
