Dubai – MENA Herald: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is sponsoring the 20th International Holy Qur’an Award (DIHQA), on 12 June.

HE Ohoud Khalfan Al Roumi, Minister of State for Happiness, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, and HE Ibrahim Bu Melha, Adviser to the Ruler of Dubai for Cultural and Humanitarian Affairs and Head of the DIHQA organising committee, attended the event, which featured a lecture by Sheikh Saad Al Atiq from Saudi Arabia, on the ‘Secrets of Happiness.’
The 20th DIHQA is held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and takes place from 1-20 Ramadan, and includes lectures for men, women, and foreign communities.
