All 11 members of a Nigerian doctor's family have astoundingly memorised the Holy Quran for happiness in life and the Hereafter as advised by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), a media report said.

Now 19-year-old Nigerian Haruna Mohammed is competing at the 17th Dubai International Holy Quran Award, and was the first to sit for the final tests on July 16.

The student of Law and Shariah (Islamic teachings), who is a participant in the award this session, said he started memorising the Quran at the age of six and finished at 12.

"My father, Mohammed, who is a doctor and has fully memorised the Quran, was a great help to me, and my 10 brothers who all memorise the Quran in full", he is quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.

Though this is the first ever participation for Haruna in a Quran award, he is fully geared up and working hard to come first. "I wish to be an Islamic preacher in the future."

Twenty one-year-old Omani contestant Mohammed bin Khalifa, a student of engineering, memorised the Quran during his primary education (Grade 1 to 6). "I memorised the Quran in just two years."

Showing good performance, Mohammed participated in many local and international Quran contests such as Libya, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. "My father used to encourage me to complete memorisation. However, I am the only member in my family to memorise the Quran in full."

It was a similar story for Bahraini contestant Hamad Saud, 16, who said his family, particularly his father and mother, were very helpful in his five-year journey with the Holy Quran.

"I started memorising the Quran at the age of five at the Shaikh Essa bin Ali Quran Study Centre, and finished at ten."

The grade-11 student used to memorise one page a day until he completed this sacred mission. "Four of my six brothers and sisters have memorised the Quran in full."

Showing good performance, Hamad participated in 14 local Quran contests in Bahrain, and internationally in Kuwait.

"This is my second international participation in Dubai," he said, adding that he wished to be a Quran teacher in the future.
