It was very nice to see recites the quran completely in one rakath (taraveeh prayer) for more than 8 hrs was conducted by young Hafiz Mohammed Noohu in Arampally. May ALLAH give him a good health and long happy life and for akhira.And we have also to appreciate three persons who stand for 8 hrs continously. Nowadays even for one salah we feel difficult to stand and i think Savanna Shahul Hameed Alim Mufti conducted 2 times full quran in one salah and Shaik Abdul Kader Misbahi Alim, Noohu Hafiz and Azwad Hafiz in Srilanka.

This event is familiar to our Kayalites, here Saudis have surprised the event particularly about the reciting speed how one could finish a juzu within 16.66 minutes / full Quran in about 500 Minutes.
