Bu Melha said now youngsters too are showing a talent for outstanding performances and melodious recitations.

“The award is gaining popularity locally, regionally and abroad and it has become a dream for many to chip in,” he said.

The other young participant is Julaybeeb Noman Uddin from Australia. Bu Melha said the 11-year-old with a beautiful voice was tested on Monday night.

Bu Melha said the number of competitors this year — 89 — is the highest in all international Quran awards worldwide.

All contestants need to clear an initial qualifying test. This year, four of the contestants were disqualified.

So far, 27 contestants have sat for the final public examinations being held at the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry every night from 10.30pm. Next year, DIHQA will also organise the first global forum for Quran arbitrators in the region.

Bu Melha said the seminar would bring international Quran judges from all over the world. The event will highlight the accumulative expertise of the veteran scholars.

The Holy Quran contest, the main branch of DIHQA, will see seven more memorisers on Wednesday night. They are from countries as diverse as Libya, Indonesia, Burundi and India.
