At the beginning of the meeting, Hossein Asadi, Chairman of the Jury of the, said, “The 22 works submitted to the World Prize 114, have reached the final stage after going through various stages of judging, and the selected works will be determined by points of the judges in the final stage. These works will be announced at the closing ceremony of the World Prize 114 soon.”

It should be mentioned that by the initiative of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the call for participate in First World Prize 114 was issued on April 9, 2020 (Coincided with 15 Sha’ban 1441) to select the best media productions and Quranic activities of the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). After receiving more than 500 works and Quranic activities from different countries of the world, and passing the preliminary and semi-final evaluation stages in the secretariat, the festival has approached its final stage.

“For the first time, the World Prize 114 was established by the Deputy for International Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly for the promotion-propagation purposes. The purpose of this award is to pave the way for the production of Quranic works and to encourage missionaries to promote the Quran in all parts of the world. The call for the First World Prize 114 was issued on April 9, 2020 (Coincided with 15 Sha’ban 1441), and so far, 510 works from different countries have been submitted to the World Prize 114 Secretariat in the form of face-to-face and virtual Quranic activities, and production and distribution of Quranic works in areas such as radio production, podcasts, photo-text, and video,” he continued.

“Holding Quranic promotion-propagation activities such as reciting Quran juzʼs and Quranic education class will refresh the atmosphere of Shiite communities,” added the chairman of the jury of the World Prize 114.

“In the Secretariat of the World Prize114, these works were judged in two stages of preliminary and semi-final screening, and 22 works in different categories reached the final stage as candidates. In the final judging session, the selected works will be introduced for a few minutes and then the judges will present their opinions. Then, each judge gives between 0 and 14 points to each work. Finally, by adding these points, the final works will be introduced at the closing ceremony,” Asadi added, announcing that the number of works submitted to the Secretariat of the World Prize 114, is 510.

“In cooperation with other institutions, it is planned that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, will establish Club 114. This club will help increase the knowledge and synergy of those who want to work on the production and promotion of Quranic content,” he mentioned.

Following the meeting, Dr. Edgardo Rubin (Soheil As’ad), one of the World Prize 114 Judges, said, “The holding of such awards by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is effective in reviving the teachings of the Quran, and I was impressed to see the works submitted to the Secretariat of the World Prize 114. Once, the Holy Quran was abandoned in the Islamic world. But after 40 years of the revival of the Holy Quran by the Islamic Republic of Iran, even works from Mexico are submitted to the World Prize 114, or a girl active in the Quranic field, only 12 years old, has 300,000 viewers in social media, which is a source of honor.”

Hojat al-Islam Hossein Soleimani, another judge of the World Prize 114, also stated, “Like other fields and activities, there are unknown Quranic talents and communities among Shiites in the world. In the meantime, we do not even know 10% of them. These communities work in low profile. But the important point is that there should be networking between them, and these communities should be interconnected and provide more comprehensive performance by providing training to them.”

In the final judging session, considering the establishment of this award as a blessed and appropriate action, Hojat al-Islam Mohammad Ali Moeinian, one of the judges of the World Prize 114, stated, “This Prize was started with the efforts of our friends, and in the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, we succeeded in serving to establish the World Prize, and despite the limited time, it was very well received.”

“Some major Quranic communities in various countries were not informed of the World Prize 114. We must work to resolve this shortcoming in the future. This award has blessings that we will see in the years to come,” he continued.

Dr. Rahim Khaki, another judge of the World Prize 114, also said, “This Prize can encourage teenagers and young people for Quranic activities. It is necessary to commemorate those who work in the field of the Quran in the world. The World Prize 114 has the potential to become an international Prize, and I hope that it will be continued in the coming years.”

It should be mentioned that in the section of Quranic institutes, 12 institutes from different countries reached the final competition of World Prize 114 and judging.

Ahl-ul-Bayt World Assembly to hold 114 World Award

Ahl-ul-Bayt World Assembly to hold 114 World Award

The Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS) World Assembly plans to organize a competition featuring Quranic activities.


Titled 114 World Award, its main aim is identifying and appreciating such activities and creating a network of Quranic initiatives of the followers of Ahl-ul-Byat (AS), the Assembly’s international deputy said.


Sheikh Mohammad Javad Zarean said a plot thatched by the enemies of Islam and Muslim unity is to spread the wrong notion that Shia Muslims do not pay attention to Quranic activities.


Fortunately, thanks to the Islamic Revolution of Iran, blood of martyrs and prudence of Imam Khomeini and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, there has been special attention to Quran recitation, Tajweed and Tafseer, he noted.


He said the first edition of the 114 World Award will be held this year in the holy month of Ramadan.


Ramadan is the month of Quran and an opportunity for reading, reciting and contemplating the Holy Book and promoting Quranic activities, he said.


The cleric noted that the difference the award has with other such competitions is that no one is invited to take part in the contest but the organizers identify Quranic activities and select and introduce the best ones.


Sheikh Zarean invited institutions and organizations active in Quranic fields to help the Assembly in holding the event.


In the first edition of the award, the focus is on arts, media and software production activities, he noted.


The cleric also noted that the Quranic activities in Iran will not be included in the selection process for the time being given the broad scope of such activities in the country.


He expected that more than 1,000 Quranic activities will be evaluated to select the best ones.

Message of ABWA’s Secretary-General on 1st Quranic “World Prize 114” internationally

Message of ABWA’s Secretary-General on 1st Quranic “World Prize 114” internationally

In a message on the occasion of holding the first Quranic international “World Prize 114”, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani emphasized, “By participating in this Quranic program, dear preachers, esteemed members of the Assembly, and all esteemed colleagues and companions are expected to pave the way for the increasing development of Quranic culture among the followers of AhlulBayt in the world.”

The message of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly of the is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


الحمدُ للَّه و سُبحانَکَ؛ اللَّهُمَّ صلِّ علی محمدٍ و آلهِ مظاهر جمالِک و جلالِک و خزائنِ اسرارِ کتابِکَ الذی تجلّی فیه الأَحدیّةُ بِجمیعِ أسمائکَ حتّی المُسْتَأْثَرِ منها الّذی لا یَعْلَمُهُ غَیرُک؛


قالَ رسولُ اللَّه صلَّی اللَّه علیه و آله و سلَّم: *انّی تارکٌ فیکُمُ الثّقلَیْنِ کتابَ اللَّهِ و عترتی أهلَ بیتی؛ فإِنَّهُما لَنْ یَفْتَرِقا حَتّی‏ یَرِدَا عَلَیَّ الْحَوضَ.


During his blessed life, especially in the last days of his honorable life, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) ordered the Muslims of the world to make two great and precious deposits, namely, “the Holy Quran” and “Itrat” (AhlulBayt), and he considered the way of salvation, happiness and excellence of the Islamic Ummah in following the two together at the same time.


Today, in the era of the revival of Islam, whose enemies want to separate Muslims from the Quran and Itrat, and intending to destroy the unity of Muslims, they are doing everything to destroy the global discourse of genuine Islam; The way of salvation and happiness and victory is the same as it was: Clinging on the two precious weights that the Prophet deposited and commanded and bequeathed to the entire Muslim Ummah.


The vicissitude history of the Islamic Ummah is proof that whenever the Muslims, by the order of the Prophet, placed these two weights in front of them and clung to them, they witnessed scientific, cultural, social, and economic conquests and prosperities. Whenever they are neglected or one of those two weights is neglected, Islamic Ummah is not entitled to anything but stagnation, domination, tyranny, poverty, and misery in all aspects.


Following the method of the Infallible Imams (a.s.) as translators of revelation and true interpreters of the word of God, who received the entire Quran from the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) and sacrificed their lives to revive and establish the Quran, the World Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is proud to establish and strengthen the movement for the development of Quranic culture among followers and lovers of the AhlulBayt, by emphasizing the excellence and maturity of them, in order to revive their Quranic values and acquaint them more with revelatory teachings.


Therefore, the opportunity of the holy month of Ramadan – which is the spring of Quran, according to one of the Imams – should be, in the true sense of the word, the beginning of a process of prosperity to the spread of Quranic culture among the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) throughout the world. Efforts to design and implement various Quranic programs from teaching and research to promoting Quranic culture in attractive formats for different types of audiences, especially youth and adolescents, such as producing artistic products and influential media, setting up home and community Quranic circles, Quran recitation ceremonies and daily recitations, various competitions, Quran-based pulpits and lectures, etc.; the atmosphere of houses, mosques and husseiniyahs, the virtual space and the gatherings of the followers of God will illuminate and perfume them in this luminous month.


The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly intends to promote this enlightened current, and valuable Quranic movement, which began at the same time with the middle of Shaban, the birth of the fourteenth speaker Quran, the and savior of humanity, Imam Mahdi (a.s.), and will be held on the great feast of Ghadir, by supporting the Quranic activities of Quranic centers, preachers and activists by launching the “World Prize 114”.


By participating in this Quranic program, dear preachers, esteemed members of the Assembly, and all esteemed colleagues and companions are expected to pave the way for the increasing development of Quranic culture among the followers of AhlulBayt in the world, and the result of this blessed effort, would be the pleasure of God Almighty and the blessed Thaqalayn (Quran and AhlulBayt) as the freshness of life in this world and the preservation of the Hereafter for all.


Peace be upon you and God bless you


Reza Ramazani
