About Annual Central Texas Regional Quran Competition

This noble effort started as a means to help the community connect with the Qur’an. Ramadan is the month of Quran and the goal of this competition is to help each member of our community rekindle his or his relationship with the Qur’an. We hope that memorizing various suwar of the Qur’an and correcting our Tajweed will serve as a starting point for this relationship. It is our sincere hope that this competition serves the purpose of motivating our community members to memorize the word of Allah, correct our mistakes in Tajweed and thereby start our relationship with the word of Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala at a different level. Event dates will be announced during the month of Ramadan.
