The Read and Rise
Quran Competition


The National Read & Rise Quran Competition was established in 2010. Sponsored from 2010 to 2017 by the Late Mubarak Abdel Aziz Alsaway and organised by Right Start Foundation International. The competition extends to all regions of the UK and offers a platform for thousands of Muslims in Britain to demonstrate their recitation and receive vital feedback: Cementing their ambition and rewarding their efforts.

Competitors range in age and ability; from 4 to 74 and novice to pro. Each year we welcome back hundreds of competitors all aiming to achieve a higher level than they had the previous year. With the ultimate aim of winning the category they have entered, whether it’s 1, 3, 5, 15, 20 or 30 juzz (the whole quran).

Each year the competition welcomes hundreds of new applicants, from different nationalities and all at different stages of their hifz journey. All who enter are rewarded with gifts and a certificate stating their level of recitation. The winners of each category are invited to attend a prestigious awards ceremony in our capital, London, where they are awarded their prize (from £100 to £30,000).



The Read & Rise Competition 2018 is now complete

‘Many Congratulations’ to all who participated in this years competition.   The judges have noted there were many beautiful recitations and participants standards increase year upon year.
