Also, Mr. Ali from the Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs graced the occasion. Dr. Qadir, congratulated all the winners of Quran Competition who had put in their hard work well supported by their passionate parents and enthusiastic teachers. Those children who could not make it to the mark should not feel disheartened. He advised, winning or losing is part of life. One should not give up but keep trying and trying till they succeed.
The Quran Competition was divided into four segments, The Elocution, Recitation, Calligraphy and written quiz. An additional category of written quiz was for parents.
In Western classical rhetoric, elocution is one of the five core disciplines of pronunciation, which is the art of delivering speeches. Orators are trained not only on proper diction, but on the proper use of gestures, stance, and dress. The following participants were the winners of Elocution contest judged on their proper diction, proper use of gestures, stance, and dress.
The Elocution was based on the following topics:
Group B – Islam : Mercy to mankind
Group C – Muslim Contribution to the world of Science
Group D – Al Quran: the ultimate source of guidance to mankind
Group E – The world religions and path to peace
Another section which drew a large number of students is Calligraphy. Calligraphy means beautiful writing. Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument, brush, or other writing instruments. A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as, "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner"
Keeping in with the importance of Holy Quran for muslims in particular and mankind in general. IMWA for the last several years had been educating our brothers, sisters and children alike,. - of the right path in worshipping Allah, leading a good life, living in harmony and mutual respect with other religions and cultures. Muslims learn from Quran, morals of life. Quran is a guide and command for rituals including prayers, fasting, pilgrimage, rules of marriage, divorce, inheritance, finance, partnerships, you name it and the subject is covered in Quran.
