The international Holy Quran and call to prayer competition, organized by the General Entertainment Authority (GEA), introduced unique stories about the contestants who came from different countries to participate in the competition in its two branches of Holy Quran recitation and call to prayer.
The competition includes different types of contestants distinguished by a variety of talents. The Moroccan contestant Abdallah Barkady is a real estate agent, while the Bahraini contestant Mohammed Mujahid is a physician, and the Algerian Abdulrahman Bouhabila is a teacher of art.
Many muezzins in the competition work also as reciters, such as the Syrian Khalil Benshi, who is a Holy Quran reciter on Bahraini TV, but he participated in the call to prayer branch of the competition. The Libyan muezzin Abdul Fattah Jahider, is a munshid (singer of religious songs) who participated in many festivals.
