The International Conference on the Omani Role in the Service of the Holy Quran and its Sciences

For more than fourteen centuries, no book has received more research, study, care and attention than the Noble Qur’an. Muslims have been memorizing, reciting, writing, studying and interpreting it and looking into its vocabulary, meanings, indications and guidelines and they are still doing that. the Islamic library today is full of abundant literature on Quranic sciences. Some of the work and research in this field was written by non-Muslims. Manuscript cabinets around the world also contain ample copies of the Holy Quran.

Omanis have contributed to Qur’anic sciences. However, a considerable part of this contribution has been locked in cabinets and between the covers of books receiving no attention. This conference intends to lift the cover off such contributions, and introduces the Omani efforts in the service of the Qur’an; its teaching and interpretation, translation of its meanings, its compilation in masahif, and the study of its recitations, tajwid and sciences.

Conference Aims and Objectives:

  1. To introduce Omani efforts in the service of the Noble Qur’an and its sciences.
  2. To track the manuscripts of the Omani Masahif and study their terms and technical characteristics.
  3. To set up a database of the main topics that the Omanis studies in the field of Qur’anic sciences.
  4. To study the Omani heritage in the field of Qur’anic sciences and seek to print and publish it.
  5. To revive the traditions of the schools of the Noble Qur’an in Oman and employ modern technologies in their development.
