Al-Quran literacy effort is not solely on the part of the Department of Islamic Studies and the Ministry of Religious Affairs, but parents also play an important role in providing early exposure to the reading of Al-Quran to their children. The Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs highlighted the matter at the Prize Presentation Ceremony of the under 10 Khatam Al-Quran Incentive Scheme for Religious and Arabic Schools at Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha's Girls Secondary Arabic Religious School, Kampong Katok.
