As the ultimate source of guidance and wisdom, the Qur’an holds a central place in the hearts of all Muslims. It is the revealed word of Allah, and through its teachings, we can uncover the path to righteousness.

On Saturday, February 24, we invite you to join us at Annoor Academy Gym in Knoxville, TN for an enlightening conference on the Qur’an. This one-day event will be an opportunity for us to come together as a community to reflect on the blessings and mercy present in the words of Allah.

Throughout the conference, we will have inspiring talks and beautiful recitations of the Qur’an, as well as workshops on Tajwid and live scholarly reflections. Additionally, we will be offering a series of 40 Hadith that reveal the blessings of the Qur’an.

We also invite you to participate in our 3rd Annual Al-Mizmaar (flute) competition, as we will be hosting our young Qaris of Knoxville on stage!

As we come together to explore the depth of the Qur’an, we hope to strengthen our connection to Allah and unlock the gems of revelation that it holds. May Allah guide us on this journey.
