Muscat: The Sultan Qaboos competition for the Holy Quran will be resumed after it was stopped for two consecutive years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The Sultan Qaboos Higher Center for Culture and Science announced today the resumption of its competition in its thirtieth session at its seven levels, after a two-year hiatus for two consecutive sessions, due to the Covid-19 pandemic," Oman News Agency (ONA), said in a statement.

The center stated that the announcement of registration date will be issued through the website during the current month. The preliminary qualifiers will begin during the month of August, followed by the final qualifiers in the month of November 2022.

The announcement of the winners of the competition and their honoring ceremony will be during the month of December 2022.

Among the most important objectives of the competition are urging Omanis to memorise and assimilate the Qur’an, raising a Quranic generation, finding glorified reciters of the Qur’an who are perfect for its performance and strengthening the Sultanate’s presence in international Quranic competitions.
