    57m to recite a book that is the foundation for terrorism!! An amount that can lift several dozens out of poverty and provide them with reasonable livelihood. Opium

      @General Sam, point of correction, this Holy Book is not a foundation of terrorism, do not say what you have no knowledge of.

    No body does Quranic recitation competition in Saudi Arabia. But our hopeless and thoughtless boko haramic leaders continue to encourage memorization without understanding of the subject matter. Congratulations for production of potential two hundred and sixteen (216) male and female suicide bombers.
