The Media & Islam

Why AlFurqan TV ?

AlFurqan TV is not just another Islamic Online  TV channel. Nor will it promote any particular Islamic sect or dogma.
  AlFurqan TV will, InshaAllah, provide its viewers with state-of-the-art TV programmes. These would be based on authentic teachings of the Qur’an and Hadith.
  AlFurqan TV will, InshaAllah, be backed by the best available media technology, creativity, research and operational management.
  AlFurqan TV would, InshaAllah, be a respected global media outlet presenting Islam and removing misconceptions about Islam.
  AlFurqan TV would also promote inter-faith dialogues, common teachings of scriptures of major religions and world peace.
  AlFurqan TV would, InshaAllah, make both Muslims and Non-Muslims realize the effectiveness of Islam in solving problems of humankind. Solutions, derived from their Creator - the All Aware.
Join us… in our mission for peace – through AlFurqan TV.

UMIO | International Holy Qur'an Award

Annually, the International Holy Quran Award is given to people who memorize and recite the Quran. In addition, an Islamic Personality of the Year Award is presented to an eminent Muslim personality or an outstanding Islamic organisation.

The Award is established in order to encourage young Muslims to memorize and understand the Holy Quran, and to spread the Quranic values of peace and love.

Each edition of the Holy Quran Award is called a 'session'.

There is also a local competition - open only to UA nationals - that concludes in the Islamic month of Moharram.


The Competition
Each session of the International Holy Quran Award commences on the first day of the Holy Month of Ramadan. During the first week, Muslim scholars deliver lectures on a variety of Islamic and ideological issues.

Between the 8th and the 18th of Ramadan, the Holy Quran Recitation and Memorization Contest (Hifz) takes place, with a panel testing six to eight contestants daily. Only one contestant per country can participate in the memorization competition.

Assalam Alaikum.
