Memorisation of Holy Quran Centres in Abu Dhabi

The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments runs and supervises a number of Quran Memorisation Centres across the UAE.

Students at these centres learn Quran sciences, the rules of holy Quran recitation, the Prophet’s traditions, and the Islamic etiquette which contribute in strengthening the love of God, and His Messenger. The centres offer students with outstanding performance awards to encourage them to study and memorise the holy Quran.

Zayed Quran Memorisation Project

First launched in 1974 by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan across the cities and regions of the UAE, the project is overseen by the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments focusing its efforts on attracting students from all grade levels, as well as their parents to memorise portions from the holy Quran and attend religious lessons during summer holidays.

Regulation of Holy Quran Centres

Awqaf regulates the establishment of the holy Qur'an Memorisation Centres in the Emirate through the Religious Centres and Institutes Department which issues legal licences for those who want to set-up memorisation centres.
