Within the spiritual atmosphere of the holy month of Ramadhan and in the holy sanctuary of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), the recited Quranic Khatmah was launched on the first day of the holy month of Ramadhan, held by the Institute of the Holy Quran of the Department of Islamic and Human Knowledge Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine with the participation of a group of readers of the Holy Book of the Almighty God, and which will continue until the last days of the holy month.
Sheikh Jawad al-Nasrawi, director of the Institute of the Holy Quran at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has given us details of this Khatmah, saying: "The recited Quranic Khatmah was held inspired from the words of the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household): "He who reads a verse from the Holy Quran in the month of Ramadhan, has the reward of a Quran's Khatmah in the other months." And within the Quranic program prepared by the Institute to commemorate the days and nights of this holy month, the Institute has given great importance to this Khatmah that starts daily at 5 pm to read one Juz'.”
Adding: “A place in the holy sanctuary was allocated to this khatmah and was provided by the holy Quran to enable the participants to follow with the readers while they are reciting the verses, with a sound system of high accuracy in addition to a platform designed to fit this Quranic achievement. And broadcasted live by a group of satellite channels: (the channel of the Holy Quran, the Euphrates channel, the channel of Imam Hussein, Al-Anwar channel, Al-Mahdi channel), noting that the whole broadcasting effort is of the staff of the Division of Photography and Montage in the Department of intellectual and cultural affairs of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine."
It is noteworthy that the Institute of the Holy Quran in the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has prepared a plan and a program to commemorate the days and nights of this holy month through the establishment of the Quranic Khatmah or competitions and others, both in the Institute or in its branches located in most of the provinces of Iraq, in order to participate in the dissemination of the culture of reading the holy Quran in this holy month, and helping in completing the Khatmah in this month.
