Vice President Faisal Naseem emphasised on Saturday the significance of researching and understanding the Holy Quran during his address at the "Mahfal al-Qurani 1445" forum organised by the Islamic University of Maldives (IUM). He encouraged everyone to strive to comprehend the meaning of Quranic verses when reciting from the holy book. The event took place this morning in the IUM hall.

During the ceremony, Vice President Naseem underscored the importance of practising the beautiful recitation of the Quran according to Tajweed from an early age. He also stressed the significance of dedicating time every day to studying and comprehending the meaning of Quranic verses. In his speech, he expressed his hope that the "Mahfal al-Qurani" forum would help address some of the challenges associated with teaching the Quran in schools.

The "Mahfal al-Qurani 1445" forum was organised to provide attendees with knowledge and skills in Tajweed and elocution of the Quran. Tajweed refers to the study of the rules governing the correct pronunciation of the Quranic text, while elocution focuses on the art of reciting the Quran in a clear, distinct, and socially acceptable manner. Through this forum, attendees can deepen their understanding and improve their skills in these important aspects of Quranic recitation.

At the event, Vice President presented plaques of appreciation to the forum's sponsors. The forum is the third of its kind to be held this year.
