Majid and Mike will be participating in the National Braille Quran Recitation Competition (MTQB) 2023 from 30 November – 3 December 2023 organised by PERTIS (Malaysian Islamic Association of the Visually Impaired) at Hotel Zecon in Kuala Lumpur.
Both Majid and Mike have registered for the Recitation of Al-Quran Braille in Tarannum category.

- The allotted time is 10 minutes.
Meaning: ‘Tarannum is an art of recitation where the rhythm is varied according to the process of intonation and voice projection for the purpose of harmonising the sound especially in the recitation of al-Quran. It consists of two divisions - Hijaz and Misri. Both are the art of voice projection with the purpose of harmonising the sound.’ Mufti of Federal Territory’s Office, Kuala Lumpur
Majid: ‘I have chosen surah Al-Baqarah, verse 124 to 129. My aim is to further sharpen my talent in Tarannum. Review the melody and rhythm in the Tarannum. Showcase the talents and potentials of the Visually Impaired in the community in this area.’
Mike: ’I will be reading Surah Al An'am, verse 1 to 5. The reason I am joining this event is because I want to improve my Tarannum recitation.‘
