This year, there are 16 contests in Marotil Qur’an such as Choir, Hadroh, Wall Chart, Fashion Show, Tahfidz, Tartil etc. The competitions ran well. Choirs and Hadroh which were performed at the main stage were stunning with a wide array of creativity and innovations. One of the new contests in this year Marotil Qur’an was Fashion Show Competition in which the contestants who are sholehah girls aged 5-7 years did not only have to do make up by themselves but also to speak in front of an adjudicator under the theme “Father and Mother”.
