On Friday 14th March 2014, Jamia Masjid Minhaj-ul-Quran held a Husn-e-Qiraat Competition and monthly Giyarvee Sharif Mehfil for young female students who attend the education centre. The students had been preparing for the event for approximately a month, and practiced regularly to perfect their recitations. The event had been organised after the children were shown a clip from the opening ceremony of the Minara tus Salaam. The recitation of the holy Quran from the ceremony was shown, which also included the encouragement and praise that Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri showed towards the reader. So, in honour of the event the Husn-e-Qiraat competition was held at Jamia Masjid Minhaj-ul-Quran. There were three hosts of the event, Alisha Ahmed, Sana Saeed Butt and Nimrah Khan, who are all senior students at the education centre.
