TEHRAN (IQNA) – Iran’s representative in Jordan’s 14th international Quran contest for women said she was happy with her performance at the competition.


Fatemeh Shirazi, who arrived in Amman on Thursday, went on the stage to answer 5 questions of the panel of judges on Saturday.

She told IQNA that she has answered all of the questions accurately without any problem.

She added that representatives of Sudan, Iraq, Egypt, Indonesia, Syria, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have also had good performance in the contest and could be among the winners.

As for her familiarity with the regulations of the competition, Shirazi said she had been given explanations by Iran’s Awqaf and Charity Affairs Organization about the regulations and scoring criteria before leaving for Jordan.

She also said good programs have been planned for the contestants on the sidelines of the Quran competition.

The international Quranic event will wrap up in an awarding ceremony on Thursday.

Shirazi is a memorizer of the entire Quran who came second in the country’s national Quran competition last year.

Representatives of 35 countries are competing in Jordan’s 14th international Quran contest for women.

The Quranic event got underway on Saturday.

In 2018, Iran’s Maryam Shafiei, who is visually-impaired, won the third rank in Jordan’s 13th international Quran competition for women.

The Arab country’s international Quran contest for men will be held in the holy month of Ramadan (May-June).
