AGU President Honours Quran Memorisation Contest Participants

Arabian Gulf University (AGU) President Dr. Khalid bin Abdulrahman Al Ohaly has recently honoured the participating students in the contest for the memoriation of the Holy Quran and the Prophet’s Hadith.

The contest was organised by the Students Affairs Deanship in the university with the aim of encouraging the youth to recite and memorise the Holy Quran and the Prophet’s Hadith.

Students Affairs Dean Dr. Abdulrahman Yousif explained that the university is seeking, through organising such activities, cementing the teachings of Islam among students, based on the Holy Quran and Sunnah.

Dr. Yousif said: “The Holy Quran is a reference in all matters of life and provides a spiritual culture that enhances the ability of our students to understand the principles of our religion, such as fair legislations that provide a reference on how to deal with life.”

“AGU’s strategies, which are based on social responsibility, include students’ spiritual development and to provide all means of support to them, guaranteeing them a comfortable environment to receive knowledge. We consider students as the backbone of the successes achieved by the university, which will spare no efforts in organising religious events and activities that are based on the teachings of Islam,” Dr. Yousif added.

On his part, Social Supervisor at the Students Affairs Deanship Ahmed Al Sa’ee, who also supervised the contest, stated that a total of 48 male and female students took part in the contest, clarifying that 12 male students and 36 female students participated. Male students were topped by Bader Naji Al Hussain, while the second place was equally won by Abdulrahman Ismail Janahi and Omar Redah Al Saeed, and the third place went to Safuldeen Al Jowder.

As for female students, the contest included teams of three students, as the first place went to Mariam Abdullah Al Ma’awdah, Ammira Ashraf Ahmed and Al Zaina Mohammed Al Binali, while the second place went to Shaima Shaker Salama, Fatima Abdulkareem Al Hayki and Asmaa Husam Abu Alainain, and Nayla Isa Al Khater, Aisha Khalid Ali and Razan Adnan Al Ibrahim won the third place.
