Quran schools in Oman start registration

Muscat: At the beginning of the Holy Month of Ramadan, the Holy Quran Schools, which are supervised by the Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs, started to register students of all ages nationwide.
According to officials at the Ministry of Endowment and Religious Affairs, the programme aims to use this holy time to benefit the people of the country according to what is appropriate for each region and village throughout the Sultanate.
Hilal Al Riyami, Director of the Department of Quranic Schools at the ministry, said: “The purpose of the summer programme is to take advantage of the holiday period for school students and women so they may benefit both in this life and the hereafter.”
He added: “It also aims to establish a Quranic generation who apply the book of God and follow the process of memorising the Holy Quran and to encourage them to continue.” Al Riyami pointed out that another two summer programmes with these goals will start after Ramadan. The first period begins from 9 June to 11 July and the second period begins from 14 July to 8 August.
The Quranic schools primarily attract male students from ages 7 to 10 and attract females from 7 to 18 years old. The Quranic programs include memorization, recitation and Tajweed programme.
The electronic programme for teaching the Holy Quran recently won the award of the best electronic program in the world in the State of Kuwait.
