  • Recitals of the Holy Quran at various timings five times a day to suit all listeners to complete the Holy Quran within a month 
Dubai, May 13, 2018:   Under the directives of Her Highness Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Jumaa Al Maktoum, the wife of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Dubai Holy Quran Radio has announced its new special programmes for Ramadan, which will start on the first day of the holy month of Ramadan 1439. The announcement came at a media roundtable held at the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center (HHC) offices today.
 
The radio station airs across the UAE at a frequency of 91.4FM.  A series of recitals of one chapter of the Holy Quran will happen at various intervals five times a day to give listeners options to complete the Holy Quran within a month. 
 
The new programming session will have the following timings: full section before Suhoor by Abu Bakr Al Shatri at 3:00 am; dawn voice reader Rami Dais at 4:00 am, the morning closing reciter Abdullah Basqar at 7:00 am; the afternoon reading by Suhail Yassin at 3:00 pm, and before the breaking of the fast Quran recitation by Jamaan al-Osaimi, at 6:00 pm. 
 
This year, Dubai Radio for Quran has also added a series of programmes, including the lectures by Abdullah Moosa and Osama Al-Lala and the recitation of the holy Quran by the Imam and lecturer Muhammad Al-Shaarawi.
 
Also discussed at the press briefing was a summary of the achievements of Dubai Holy Quran Radio since its launch on June 6, 2016, including the increase in the hours of production and montage, reciters, and religious programmes that affect the lives of individuals during the holy month and throughout the year. 
 
H.E. Abdullah Hamdan bin Dalmook, CEO of HHC, said: “Since its establishment two years ago, Dubai Holy Quran Radio has come a long way in realising its vision which is to be become a leading radio station solely dedicated to propagate the Holy Quran.”
 
“Dubai Radio for Holy Quran has been broadcasting recitations of the Holy Quran throughout the year, focusing on its true interpretations. It has also helped enhance the role of religion in the society through reliable accredited Imams and has been collecting and archiving recordings of the best reciters of Quran in the Arabic and Islamic world, including UAE nationals,” he added.
 
“Dubai Radio for Quran has also helped preserve the Holy Quran as a reference and source of Arabic language, and empowered national talents to memorise the Holy Quran,” bin Dalmook underlined.
 
Speaking more about the achievements of Dubai Radio for Quran, bin Dalmook added: “In its second year, the radio station has produced and broadcasted 17 programmes compared with a total of 8 programmes in 2016. The radio recording hours were 95 hours in 2017 compared to 40 hours in 2016. The production and montage has more than doubled and this indicates that the station is taking the right path to realize its vision and objectives.”
 
“In the first quarter of 2018, the average number of listeners of Dubai Holy Quran Radio has reached around 209,000 listeners every week,” bin Dalmook noted.
 
'We are currently working on boosting the radio broadcast to other countries Moreover, since the first year, we have launched an app on Android and IOS to make Dubai Radio for Quran accessible to any listener in the world,” bin Dalmook underlined.
 
He also noted that Dubai Holy Quran Radio is currently working on a plan to build a special studio for live broadcast programmes to receive messages and calls from listeners. It is worth mentioning that the new Ramadan programmes will broadcast a large number of interludes and daily adverts to guide the faithful to remain fasting throughout the holy month.
