It was held by the women’s committee of Ansarullah Movement in cooperation with Yemen’s Awqaf and Irshad Office ahead of the birthday anniversary of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (SA), the beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The 50 women received certificates of teaching Quran memorization.
Addressing the ceremony, Ibrahim Khatib, director of the Awqaf and Irshad Office, underlined the need for establishing more schools for teaching Quran memorization.
He also stressed the need for promoting the culture of the Holy Quran in society.
Also speaking was Hannan Izzi, head of the women’s committee of Ansarullah Movement, who said the committee is ready to train memorizers of the entire Quran among women.
Quranic activities are common in Yemen despite an ongoing aggression against the country by a Saudi-led coalition.
Since March 2015, the Saudi regime, together with a coalition of its allies, has been striking Yemen.
It has been attempting unsuccessfully to reinstall Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who was a staunch ally of Riyadh until he resigned.
The Saudi campaign has killed at least 13,600 people since its onset. Furthermore, much of the country’s infrastructure, including hospitals, schools, and factories, has been reduced to rubble in the Saudi war.
Famine and outbreaks of cholera and diphtheria are other results of the Saudi-led war.
Besides defending Yemen against the Saudi aggression, the Houthi Ansarullah movement has also been running state affairs in Sana’a.
