On that note, the President of the Supreme Islamic Council Sierra Leone, Alhaji Sheikh Taha Jalloh applauded organizers for such gesture and rewarded participants with scholarships.

“From what we have seen we will find a better venue for this competition next year, we need a very big hall that will accommodate us all.” Alhaji Sheikh Taha Jalloh pointed.

He reiterated that witnessing such competition happened to be a blessing for Islamic believers, as he stated that Muslims should be prudent in the way they celebrate their Eid-al Fitr and confirmed that witnessing Quran competition is an ‘halal’ or appropriate way to celebrate the Islamic holiday. 

President of the Islamic Unit Sierra Leone, Abdulai Bah said the competition aimed at motivating young Islamic scholars as well encouraging them to be focused and dedicated to acquiring Islamic knowledge.  He maintained that the younger people need to entertain themselves around Muslims brothers and sisters and avoid going to the beach.

The Final of the competition was between the Madrasatu African Dawah Agency and the Madrasatu Miftahul Islamic School for which participants were awarded scholarships at the end of the competition.
