Register online to join campaign, says foundation head
KUALA LUMPUR: Those who wish to set up venues to join in the World#QuranHour campaign can register online.
Warisan Ummah Ikhlas Foundation chief executive officer, Marhaini Yusoff, yesterday said they could do so with the organisers via the official link at http://bit.ly/worldquranhour1438h,
With 18 days to go to the campaign on Aug 31, an initiative by the foundation, Marhaini said things were running smoothly thus far.
The campaign is set to take place simultaneously at several locations throughout the country and across the globe.
People are invited to join the event which is aimed to encourage Muslims to read, understand and practise the timeless lessons of the Quran.
“Everyone is welcome to participate, regardless of age, gender and profession. No registration is required.
“The main venues for the event include the Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Mosque at the International Islamic University of Malaysia (UIAM), the Sultan Iskandar Mosque in Bandar Dato Onn, Johor Baru, the Crystal Mosque in Taman Tamadun Islam, Kuala Terengganu, as well as Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka in Kuching, Sarawak.”
She said the Merdeka #QuranHour was only introduced this year.
The World #QuranHour campaign is held every year.
While the World #QuranHour is set to take place from 11am to 1pm, the Merdeka #QuranHour, will be held in the evening from 5pm to 11pm at Dataran Merdeka.
Marhaini said the Merdeka Day celebration this year will be different, as it would be filled with spiritual activities, where the people would be reciting the Quran at the same time at the country’s historical landmark.
