From its position as the Iranian state television channel, IRIB Quran is a major leader among television providers in the Arab world and is dedicated to promoting the values of the Quran. Following on from the provision of its predecessor Quran TV, IRIB Quran offers viewers live broadcasting of the five daily prayer sessions that are recommended in the Holy Book. In the intervals between these prayer broadcasts this satellite TV station shows images of live recordings taken from Koranic readings. These recitations are delivered by some of the best speakers in the Islamic world and are broadcast from different countries, such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Iraq among many others. For those wanting to gain knowledge or improve their existing knowledge of the Quran, this is one of the best channels available. Launched during the 1379th year of the Hegira calendar, this channel defines itself as the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB Quran). Programme scheduling on the IRIB Quran TV channel also includes coverage of major religious events, such as the month of Ramadan prayers, as well as the celebrations of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha. Of course, every stage of the route pilgrims undertake to reach the Sacred Mosque is broadcast during this holy period with especial coverage dedicated to the pilgrimage route leading to Mount Arafat.
