40 Compete in Qur’an knowledge in Tema

More than 40 students from four Islamic schools in the Tema West Municipality in the Greater Accra Region have participated in this year’s Qur’an knowledge competition.


They were selected from Baatsona, Al-Salaam, Nuurul Islam and Ibadur Rahman Islamic schools.

The participants, who were divided into five categories, answered questions on memorisation of the Qur’an, its teachings and moral values.

The competition, the second in a series, was organised by the Foundation of Tema West Islamic Schools, an NGO.

It formed part of the organisation’s effort to foster Quranic knowledge and moral values in young muslims.

Prizes worth GH¢12,700 and certificates were presented to the winners by the organisation.


Musah Mohammed, a programmes officer of the organisation, further explained that the quiz programme was to showcase students’ commitment to memorise and recite Quranic verses.

He said despite the Quran's 114 chapters, the organisation was impressed that the participants could memorise nearly 30 per cent of its content.

The event, Mr Mohammed added, did not only highlight achievements of the students but also the importance of Quranic education in nurturing moral values and spiritual growth among the youth.

“Through such initiatives our organisation is making significant strides in promoting Islamic teaching and also fostering a sense of community belonging among students.


The participants expressed gratitude to their teachers, parents and the organisers for the opportunity offered them.

One of the winners, Mamuna Hamis Usif, said the recognition she had received would motivate her to deepen her knowledge of the Quran.

For her part, Khadija Mohammed Musah also thanked the foundation for making it possible for her and her mates to participate in the competition.
