Quran Competition for the Hifz group.

There are three categories:

Category 1: the whole Quran. Students will be asked random questions from anywhere in the whole Quran.

Category 2: the last 3 Juz. This category can be for anyone who knows these three Ajzaa. For someone who knows more than these Ajzaa, and less than the whole Quran will be eligible in this Category. It will be hard to have a separate category for anyone who knows 5 juz. Because someone who knows the first five and someone who knows the last five will be hard to judge. Also it will be unfair because they are getting judged on two different sections.

Category 3: select Surahs. This category is for those who know Surahs Yaseen, Rahman, and Surah Mulk. If the student knows only one of these Surahs, then he can’t be eligible for this Category. If they know two, then we can judge them on the Surahs he knows.
