31st Intl. Quran Fair: Visitors Write Quranic Verses in Memory of Gaza People
A booth at the 31st International Holy Quran Fair is encouraging visitors to write down a Quranic verse in memory of the people of Gaza.

The booth of Tehran Municipality’s Supreme Quran and Etrat Council has launched a campaign that calls on people to write down verse 9 of Surah At-Takwir: “For what crime were they murdered.”

Awards are also given to participants through a draw.

The issue of Palestine and the resistance of people in Gaza against Israeli occupiers have been highlighted in different sections of this year’s Quran fair.

In one of the booths, children light candles to sympathize with their peers in the Gaza Strip where Israeli attacks have killed more than 32,000 people.

This year’s exhibition is being held while people in the Gaza Strip are under an unprecedented wave of hostile attacks by Israeli forces. More than 85% of the 2.4 million population of the area have been internally displaced as international organizations and NGOs have warned of an extensive famine.

Earlier, a protest was also held at the fair in support of the Palestinian people in Gaza.

The 31st International Holy Quran Fair commenced at Tehran's Imam Khomeini Mosalla on March 20, coinciding with the Nowruz holidays. This spiritual and cultural event invites visitors on a journey of exploration.

Running until April 2, the exhibition welcomes enthusiasts daily from 5:00 PM to 00:30 AM local time. Notably, the fair fosters a family-friendly atmosphere, providing a warm and inclusive space for all age groups.

Iftar tables have been thoughtfully arranged, allowing visitors to break their fast together in a communal setting. Beyond its local appeal, the fair draws attention to global issues, emphasizing the role of the Quran in inspiring resistance, particularly concerning Gaza and Palestine.

Through artistic, cultural, and theatrical mediums, the fair aims to familiarize attendees with Quranic concepts. Special sections cover topics such as artificial intelligence, Nahj al-Balaghah, Quranic research and consultation, Quran translation, and easy Quran memorization.
