"he best reciters"of the Koran in Russia are not so good, according ro world standards

In last November the radio programme «The voice of Islam» announced the competition among the reciters of the Koran. As a results of that competition, the production of a compact disk with the Suras of the Koran, declaimed by the best reciters of the world and by the winners of the competition was planned. Although the competitors were informed, that the disk would not be issued, if the level of their recite skill did not conform to world standards. The judges defined the best reciters and rewarded them with money. Citizen of Kazan A.Nabiyulloev took the first prize (15,000 rubles), the second place and 10,000 rubles was taken by the resident of the Dagestanian village Dorgeli and the third place was shared by three competitors: from Kazan, Ulyanovsk and the village Karligan in Penza Region. Unfortunately, nobody out of competitors, according to the judges, conforms the world level.
