The mother added that her daughter completed memorizing two chapters of the holy Quran when was three years old and won the seventh place the Sheikh Zayed Holy Quran Competition. She was the youngest candidate. All this was before joining the nursery, the mother added.
She continued, “I discovered her talent when she began learning talking. She was always repeating the Quran verses, which she hears in radio stations and television channels.
Then, I started teaching her the short surahs in home and later I took her to a mosque in Khorfakkan, where she learnt the rules of correct reciting and continued memorising the holy Quran.”
She was honoured by the Holy Quran Radio in the emirate of Sharjah, the mother said.
