Sina Tabbakhi from Tabriz ranked first in the 27th International Qur’an Competition held in Zagreb, Croatia on Saturday.
The top rank of Tabbakhi was gained with unanimous votes of the jury members of the competition that had started three days ago including 33 reciters from 26 different countries.
The 2nd best reciter was Hamza Fahzi from Malaysia, while the 3rd place got Ahmed Beshir, from the United States.
The ceremony was attended by the grand mufti of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hussein-ef. Kavazović, Mufti of Zagreb, Aziz-ef. Hasanović, Mufti of Ljubljana and President of the Meshihat of the Islamic Community in Slovenia Nevzet-ef. Porić, and many other imams and distinguished guests.
With this competition, we are following the mission of Islam, the mission of the Qur’an. This is the recognition of the Islamic center in Zagreb on a world level. The benefit of this competition is that one does not see where one comes from and which nation he is from. The commission evaluates how he uttered the Word of God, and not how he looks like – said Mufti Hasanović.
The first two days at the Islamic Center in Zagreb, visitors had the opportunity to enjoy learning the Qur’an from top teachers, including 34 of them from 25 countries, where the competition was also broadcast via the YouTube channel of the Islamic Community in Croatia.
