The Crimean Hafidh Are Closer And Closer To Getting Top Places In International Contests

29.11.2013 / 1084

The practice of learning the Holy Qur’an by heart has been revived on the Crimean peninsula recently, after being abandoned for about a century. Hafidh are beginning to appear among the Crimean Tatars who were deprived of their experts of the Holy Book due to hardships and sacrifices they suffered. Not least of all — because of the help provided by AUASO “Alraid”, that supported funding and functioning of the High School of Hafidh in Simferopol.

Students and graduates of this School try themselves in prestigious international contests again and again year by year, gaining higher and higher scores. It’s because of them Ukraine becomes well-known at such events, and our country’s reputation is positive.
