To participate just use the following 4 simple steps:

  1. Register Online
  2. Record your recitation on a video tape (NTSC, PAL, SECAM are acceptable formats)
  3. Mail your video with a US$10 processing fee and the registration key to IslamiCity, Attn: Qiraah Competition, P. O. Box 3030, Culver City, CA 90231, USA.
  4. The US$10 processing fee is required to process your entry for the competition.
    Without the processing fee your video will not be digitized.


  1. Please submit only ONE entry on one video tape.  Make sure that the Registration Key is written on a piece of paper and is scotch taped to the video tape or write with un inerasable marker on the video tape itself.
  2. When you are done recording your entry, please rewind the tape before shipping it to us. Most preferably, use a new video tape. But if you do believe in recycling, it is perfectly fine with us as long as you do it right. Begin recording your entry from the beginning of the tape rather than from anywhere. Last time we ended up watching films, simply to locate your entry. Remember, we receive hundreds of entries!
  3. Please do not wait until close to the deadline and submit your entry as early as possible. We receive an overwhelming majority of entries in the last 48 hours of the deadline. This results in a major workload on the 'digitizing volunteers' and also on 'judges' who had to view all the entries in a short period of time. Remember, each entry is viewed by all our judges.
