Today my family and I watched an amazing documentary called “Koran By Heart”. It premiered on HBO on August 1, 2011, which was also the first day of Ramadan.
A brief storyline: 110 kids from the Islamic world are chosen and arrive in Cairo for the world’s oldest Koran reciting contest. KORAN BY HEART follows two boys from Senegal and Tajikistan, and a little girl from Maldives – who go head-to-head with kids nearly twice their age in the pronunciation, recitation and perfected memorization of the Qur’an.
View the trailer here.
Below is the entire documentary on YouTube. Enjoy!
