Submission Guidelines:

  1. Your video must not be longer than 20 minutes.
  2. Observe appropriate Islamic attire.
  3. Record your submission in good lighting with your face and mouth clearly visible, for judging purposes.
  4. Your voice must be clearly heard with no background noise.
  5. Microphones may be used but voices may not be modified using computer software.

Helpful Hints:

Judges in these competition formats typically look for the following:

  1. Where a reciter starts a recitation and where they end it.
  2. The attention given to Tajwid rules such as Tanwin, Idghaam, Idhhaar, Ghunna, Ikhfaat, Qalqala, and so on.
  3. The rhythm and manner of a recitation and how it impacts the listener. Does the listener take it as it should be or does he/she get the wrong concept. For example,  imagine there is a phrase that suggests a question is being asked, but you read it like a simple sentence instead. This may give a listener the wrong impression.
  4. How each Arabic letter is pronounced and how it is voiced.
  5. Additionally, please note that this competition will focus on the tarteel method with emphasis on correct pronunciation, such as in the following example.
