The other categories were on fadhail of the Ahlul Bayt (a.s) and advice from the Holy Quran. For fadhail, a set of 20 verses were given to the competitors from which they were to highlight the connection with the Ahlul Bayt (a.s) and, reason for their revelation, lessons derived from the verses and their application in our day to day lives.
