The Qur’an Competition aims to encourage and help Muslims to memorize the Qur’an in shorter periods of time and to pay more attention to the proper ways of pronouncing the words of God.

With this intention, the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh holds a bi-monthly (every two months) competition in reciting or memorizing the Holy Qur’an. The invitation is open to all youth ages 16 and under in the Pittsburgh area.

We are accepting donations for prizes. Please remember that for every letter you encourage someone to read, you will be rewarded for it. Please make checks payable to the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh and in the memo, please indicate Qur’an Competition. Donations can also be made online or in our office.  

The one who recites the Qur’an beautifully, smoothly, and precisely will be in the company of noble angels. But the one who recites it with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, will have twice that reward.
— Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him
