Jordanian teen wins Quran memorization competition

STORY: This is the youngest ever winner of a Quran memorization competition

Location: Amman, Jordan

Mohammad Nouh Al Ananzah met cheers as he landed home in Jordan

after competing in Ethiopia

He says at first he struggled with motivation to memorize the Quran

but that the holy book changed his life and the verses brought him joy

[Omar Al Shuwayyat, Ananzah’s teacher]

“Mohammad has a good memory and is very patient. He spends between four to five hours with the holy Quran... He learned many parts of the Quran in months... He has good determination when it comes to the holy Quran, and this helps. This relieved me as this student is ready for any programme.”
