Quranic Circles for Women Launched in Egypt

 Egypt’s Awqaf ministry has launched Quranic circles for women in four governorates of the country for the first time.



Awqaf Minister Mohammed Mukhtar Gomaa said the Quranic programs are held in the governorates of Al-Sharqia, Alexandria, Manoufia and Gharbia, Al-Ahram daily reported.

They are organized every week on Saturday at the women’s sections of mosques and prayer rooms.

Quran exerts, teachers and memorizers as well as religious preachers take part in the Quranic events.

Gomaa said it is part of the ministry’s efforts to promote the Quran, encourage Quran activists and enhance the role of women in society.

The ministry said it plans to launch similar Quranic programs for women in Cairo and a number of other governorates as well.

With the easing of the coronavirus restrictions in Egypt a few months ago, the Awqaf ministry has resumed Quranic activities and programs in mosques and religious centers across the country.

Egypt is a country in North Africa with a population of around 100 million. Muslims account for around 90 percent of the country’s total population and Quranic activities are very common there.
