The 42nd King Abdulaziz International Competition for the Memorization, Recitation and Interpretation of the Holy Quran, is scheduled to be launched at the Grand Holy Mosque in Makkah Al- Mukarramah between Safar 14 and 25, 1444 Hijri.

The competition is expected to attract participants from around the world, where the total amount of prizes for the competition's five branches reaches around SAR 3 million.

The award this year is characterized by an increase in the allocation of prizes to SAR 2.7 million, instead of SAR 1.145 million in the previous session, in addition to adding a category of memorizing the entire Holy Quran in the seven readings, in a bid to develop this competition that carries the name of the late founder.

The award will be held according to preventive measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic according to protocols made by specialized authorities, noting that the ministry called on government institutions, ministries, associations and Islamic sheikhdoms in the world to coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through Saudi embassies to participate in the competition in its current session.
