Jeddah Gov. Prince Mishaal bin Majed will open an exhibition on the Holy Qur’an studies on Sunday.
The 12 pavilions in the exhibition being organized by the College of Education in the King Abdul Aziz University in Jeddah will showcase 30,000 items including books, publications, copies of the Holy Qur’an and flyers that are directly related to the study of the holiest book for Muslims. The exhibitors in the event include the King Fahd Holy Qur’an Printing Complex, the International Commission for Memorization of the Holy Qur’an, the Saudi Scientific Society for the Holy Qur’an, and Scientific Wonders in the Holy Qur’an and the Imam Al-Shatibi Institute of the Jeddah Charity Society for the Memorization of the Holy Qur’an.
A major attraction of the expo will be The Holy Qur’an Readings Tree, which is a chronological list of the narrators of different approved Qur’an readings presented in the form of a ‘tree.’
Head of the Holy Qur’an Studies Department at the College of Education Salah Baothman said the exhibition’s organizers have been striving to get exhibits from different parts of the Kingdom to make the event most comprehensive.
He also stressed the importance of the event since it is a specialized exhibition exclusively on the studies, writings and scientifically established facts related to the Holy Qur’an.
Supervisor of the expo Fahd Al-Atari said the displayed items include 22 pictures including photographs under the title ‘pictures and signs portraying the power of the Creator’ in addition to the plates showing the miraculous statements of the Holy Qur’an regarding a number of scientific inventions that took place centuries after the revelation of the Book. Some talented students drew the pictures and diagrams.
The participating establishments and items in the expo include the King Abdullah Chair for the Holy Qur’an and various study programs for the study of the holy book.
