MAIWP to launch “Jom Celik Al-Quran” programme on Monday


KUALA LUMPUR The Federal Territories Islamic Religious Council (MAIWP) has introduced the ‘Jom Celik Al-Quran’ programme, aimed at improving Quran reciting skills among Muslims in the Federal Territories.


MAIWP chairman Datuk Seri Syed Hussien Alhabshee in a statement today said the programme which would be launched on July 13 was part of the council’s community obligation and open to participants of all ages.


“As an Islamic management agency, it is MAIWP’s responsibility to ensure Muslims in the Federal Territories are able to read the Quran properly,” he said.





Syed Hussien said one of the programmes that would be held is the ‘Tahsin Al-Quran’ class which would be conducted every Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 1.30pm for three months.


The class is aimed at helping participants to complete the recitation of the whole Quran, he added.


“No charges will be imposed on participants from the asnaf (those who qualify as tithe recipients) group while for those from the B40 group, a fee of as low as RM30 will be charged,” he said.



“Those who are not from the two groups and interested to take part will have to pay RM300,” he said adding that the programme would be held in collaboration with the Institute of Quranic Studies (IPaq).
