The National Identity Team, Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) launched “Read and Elevate,” program to help male and female employees become proficient in reciting, memorizing and modulating (tajweed) of the Holy Quran.
This step comes as part of the “Good Eloquence” initiative adopted by the Team in a bid to maintain the UAE‘s national identity by advocating the use of Arabic language, avoiding common mistakes, and raising the religious awareness and culture.
Dr. Aysha Al Busmait, Director of Marketing and Corporate Communication, Head of the National Identity Team at RTA Administrative Support Services Sector, said, “Preservation of our national identity is a religious, national and moral duty.”
She added that “As Islam is one of the most important components of our national identity, the team is prompted to embed it as a core component of its programs, as the religious faith in human beings contributes to their advancement, development, and nobility, and makes them helpful and distinguished, and benefiting all people around.”
“The program, which is overseen by a panel of Holy Quran reciting and modulation scholars, and certified by the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai, hosts the participating employees at men prayer hall, at RTA Head Office, while women prayer hall hosts the female employees. It starts daily at 07:30 am and continues up to 09:00 am. During the session, participants receive practical training on reciting a medium-sized Sura of the Holy Quran, with focus on modulation and memorization. More info
