Driven by a commitment to the Quran, these individuals are committed to memorising and studying the Quran alongside mastering the rules of Tajweed. The department collaborates with the Sharjah Quran and Sunnah Foundation and the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments to ensure the highest quality of instruction.

In addition to the memorisation sessions, the department has designated 20 mosques throughout Sharjah for Quran recitation correction sessions. This allows participants to refine their pronunciation and recitation techniques.

Imams lead Quran sessions to explain meaning, rulings, and divine messages.

Furthermore, ten mosques have been designated for Quranic interpretation sessions. Led by skilled imams specialising in Quranic sciences, these sessions aim to clarify the meaning of the verses, explaining their rulings, nuances, and divine directives.

The department strives to expand these sessions to other areas of the emirate. Mosque imams affiliated with the department are tasked with conducting memorisation sessions for all segments of society, furthering the accessibility of Quranic education.
