Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. We seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, the One, having no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His slave and Messenger.
Welcome to my website of the best Recitation of the Noble Quran.
I first listened to the Quran recited by Shaykh Saud Ibraheem Al-Shuraim and Shaykh Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais when I went for my first umrah with my parents at seven years of age. The deep voice of Shaykh Shuraim and the melodious tone of Sudais deeply impacted me and induced in my heart a love for the Quran by the will of Allah. Like every Muslim, I traverse through the highs and lows of faith (eeman), but irrespective of the state of my faith, Allah has sustained the love for His book in my heart. Since that childhood umrah, I have been an avid listener of the Quran.
After years of listening, the idea sprang into my mind that I should compile a Quran such that I will choose the best recitation of each surah per my experience and (humble) judgement. In my selection process, I have primarily listened to the taraweeh recitations of Masjidul Haram from 1414 hijri to 1437 hijri, and the recitations of few other reciters whose recitation I enjoy. By Allah’s grace, I finished my work on the vacation of Eid Al-Adha 1437.
I have spent a lot of hours creating and compiling these audio files. I sincerely hope that Allah will accept this work from me. I hope that my compilation will induce the love for the book of Allah into the heart of many Muslims.
There are many benefits to listening to the Words of Allah. Listening makes your familiar with the Quran. Listening improves your pronunciation. But to me, the greatest benefit is the consolation of Quran. No matter how depressed, sad, or wounded you are, the divine words of Quran will console you like nothing else in this world.
Therefore, I conclude with the following beautiful dua, taught by the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him):
O Allah, I am Your servant, son of Your servant, son of Your maidservant, my forelock is in Your hand (i.e. You have total mastery over), Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Quran the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety.
