Dubai Customs has announced sponsorship for ‘Sanabel Al Khaeer 2005’ project which is currently being held till the 11th of August 2005. The project, held at Al Sedeq centre for Quran memorisation in Rashidiya, will involve participant children of all ages.
Dubai Customs' sponsorship for the project is in line with its commitment towards developing and improving religious awareness in children. The memorizing programmes for the Holy Quran held at the Al Sedeq centre are part of Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Minister of Defence H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s aim to make the Quran an integral part of the lives of the youth. Sheikh Mohammad offers awards such as the International Holy Quran Award and the local Holy Quran Award to encourage young people to participate actively in learning and reciting the Quran.
The ‘Sanabel Al Khaeer’ project includes several programmes centred on memorising the Holy Quran and understanding its meanings and rules. The project also encourages students to participate in the National Holy Quran Award that will also be held during the summer for National children.
Maryam Al Shamsi, Coordinator of the Society and Government Relations, PCFC, said: “Dubai Customs’ sponsorship for the Sanabel al Khaeer project is in keeping with our resolve to develop cultural and religious knowledge in the children of PCFC personnel and the UAE society as a whole. Dubai Customs seeks to promote memorization of Quran among children. The Sanabel al Khaeer project ensures that children’s leisure time is used constructively, and underlines PCFC’s commitment to societal awareness and education.”
Al Sedeq centre is one of the leading centres for recitation and memorization of the Quran in Dubai, and several of its students have won the Local Award for the Holy Quran since the award’s inception five years ago.
PCFC, one of the biggest government departments in Dubai and employing a large number of UAE Nationals, is also actively participating in events for DSS 2005 this summer in addition to sponsoring the Sanabel Al Khaeer.
