The 21st International Holy Qur’an Exhibition has kicked off in Tehran during a ceremony held at the Imam Khomeini Grand Prayer Grounds.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini along with several other officials attended the opening ceremony held on June 5, 2013.
Many memorizers, researchers and those ones who had made efforts for Qur’an were honored during the opening gala.
“Qur’an is the book of mankind’s movement from earth toward God. It is the plan for movement. It is the direction toward perfection. Without the book, without a law, without a plan, it is impossible for mankind to reach its peak,”
Including over 40 sections, the event is to host numerous exquisite Qur’anic works from 30 countries that have been presented by the individuals or offered by the organizations from the applicant countries.
