Darul Islam Masjid was the venue, Ramadhan was the month, the 27th night of Ramadhan was the occasion and the recitation of the entire Quran in salaah was the activity arranged by the Muslim Judicial Council(SA).
The Muslim Judicial Council (SA) was pleased to announce its intention to have a night prayer program (Qiyaamul Layl) in which the entire Quran was to be recited. MJC president, Sh. Irafaan Abrahams in consultation with Surrey Estate youth leader, Br. Arshad Samodien as well as well-known Qari and reciter Sh. Ismail Londt decided to have the historic program and to dedicate it to the entire community as well as all the deceased who contributed to the development of Islam.
The program commenced 20:28 with every detail of the various reciters and their recitations carefully documented by the MJC president himself.
