Description Benefits History Testimonials
Every Muslim should strive to follow the footsteps of the Prophet Mohamad and his companions.

Allah said in the Quran:
فَاسْتَبِقُواْ الْخَيْرَاتِ أَيْنَ مَا تَكُونُواْ يَأْتِ بِكُمُ اللّهُ جَمِيعًا إِنَّ اللّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

“So compete with one another in good deeds. Wheresoever you may be, Allah will bring you all together. Indeed Allah is Able to do all things.” [2:148]

The companions of the Prophet always competed with one another in doing good, giving charity, and seeking knowledge.  Moreover, the Prophet encouraged this competition between his companions.

Abu Hurayra, one of the Prophet’s companions, reported that the Messenger of Allah asked, "Which of you is fasting today?"
Abu Bakr said, "I am."
The Prophet asked, "Which of you has visited a sick person today?
"I have," Abu Bakr stated.
Then the Prophet asked, "Who has attended a funeral today?"
"I have," Abu Bakr said.
The Prophet asked, "Who has fed a poor person today?" Abu Bakr said, "I have."

Following in the vain of this spirit, MAC organizes various islamic competitions for children, youth, and adults to motivate them to seek knowledge.  Our competitions include:
●    Quran Memorization
●    Quran Recitation and Tajweed
●    Islamic Knowledge including Hadeeth and Seerah​
Allah says in the Quran:

سَابِقُوٓاْ إِلَىٰ مَغۡفِرَةٍ۬ مِّن رَّبِّكُمۡ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرۡضُہَا كَعَرۡضِ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ أُعِدَّتۡ لِلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِٱللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِۦ‌ۚ ذَٲلِكَ فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ يُؤۡتِيهِ مَن يَشَآءُ‌ۚ وَٱللَّهُ ذُو ٱلۡفَضۡلِ ٱلۡعَظِيمِ

“Race one with another in hastening towards Forgiveness from your Lord, and towards Paradise, the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth, prepared for those who believe in Allah and His Messengers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He pleases. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty.” [57:21]

Islamic competitions are a great way to motivate yourself and your children to study and learn your religion. 
●    Through our competitions, your children will enjoy competing with many peers their age, and will enjoy the awards and prizes for doing so
●    Youth and adults can fit knowledge checkpoints into their busy high school and work schedules to make sure the year doesn’t pass by without gaining new Islamic knowledge or refreshing what they already know

Volunteers Donations Sponsorship
We are always looking for volunteers to help run our Islamic Competitions. If you have any of the following skills and would like to get involved please contact your local chapter:

●    Advanced Tajweed Knowledge
●    Advanced Memorization
●    Marketing
●    Event Planning and Volunteering
MAC believes events such as these should be available to everyone in the community and fees should never be an obstacle to spread knowledge to all Muslims.

We also believe our children should be awarded prizes that represent the achievement of memorizing the Quran or studying the life and history (Seerah) of the Prophet, and so we have always invested in our children and families.

However, we need your donations to support these programs.  Please click on the donation button to support all of our Islamic competitions.
