Moroccan singer Saad Lamjarred in seclusion in Paris to study Holy Qur’an

PARIS: It seems that Moroccan pop singer Saad Lamjarrad challenged himself to memorize the Holy Qur’an, as was reported by the Sayidaty website, after he recently said this in Paris to Moroccan reciter Mouad Ait Elaine.

Lamjarrad told Elaine that he is reading over the Holy Qur’an, studying the rules of its recitation. The Moroccan reciter said that his eyes were filled with tears, according to what he posted on Twitter, as he was delighted by the news.

He may have been surprised by Lamjarrad’s allocation of time to learn the rules of recitation.

Mohammed Youssef, a well-known Moroccan reciter, earlier praised Lamjarrad’s morals, and his love for the reciter and scientists whom he much admires and appreciates.

Two Chinese dragon boats capsize in river, 17 killed

  • The boat capsized when it entered an area of water where two rivers converge creating dangerously strong currents
  • A second boat arrived at the scene which also capsized in the dangerous waters

BEIJING: Two dragon boats practicing to race on a river in China have overturned and 17 people drowned, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.
Television pictures showed one of the long, narrow boats packed with paddlers going over on Saturday on a stretch of a river near the city of Guilin where the current appeared to be strong.
Another dragon boat arrived at the scene, also full of paddlers, and it too capsized, the pictures showed.
Xinhua said 57 people had gone into the water and 200 rescuers were sent to help. The rescue effort went on late into the night.
The accident happened where two flows of the river converge causing a powerful current, the CCTV broadcaster said. Most of those who went into the river were not wearing life jackets, media reported.
Two people had been detained in connection with the accident, Xinhua said.
Drag boat racing is popular in various parts of Asia and the Dragon Boat Festival is a traditional holiday in China, this year on June 18.
