Quran Best Recitation Website

Welcome to my website of the best Recitation of the Noble Quran.

bestrecitation

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.

Ameen!

Sincerely,

The Shardul of Allah

Three Favorite Clips of Quran Recitation

Here are my three favorite clips of recitation from the Noble Quran. I have edited them and added English translations:

First Clip: Shaykh Saud Ash Shuraim recited verse 47 to 53 of surah Ash-Shura. The shaykh recited the verses with a deep and slow voice.

Second Clip: Shaykh Salah al-Budayr recited verse 40 to 52 of surah Al-‘Araf. The clip contains one the most beautiful verses of the Quran; the way shaykh recited it was heart melting:

وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِي صُدُورِهِم مِّنْ غِلٍّ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهِمُ الْأَنْهَارُ ۖ وَقَالُوا الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِهَٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِيَ لَوْلَا أَنْ هَدَانَا اللَّهُ ۖ لَقَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُ رَبِّنَا بِالْحَقِّ ۖ وَنُودُوا أَن تِلْكُمُ الْجَنَّةُ أُورِثْتُمُوهَا بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ

And We will have removed whatever is within their breasts of resentment, [while] flowing beneath them are rivers. And they will say, “Praise to Allah , who has guided us to this; and we would never have been guided if Allah had not guided us. Certainly the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth.” And they will be called, “This is Paradise, which you have been made to inherit for what you used to do.” [The Noble Quran 7:43]

The shaykh become very emotional when he recited the following verses:

وَنَادَىٰ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ أَنْ أَفِيضُوا عَلَيْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ أَوْ مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ ۚ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ حَرَّمَهُمَا عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ

الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا دِينَهُمْ لَهْوًا وَلَعِبًا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا ۚ فَالْيَوْمَ نَنسَاهُمْ كَمَا نَسُوا لِقَاءَ يَوْمِهِمْ هَٰذَا وَمَا كَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا يَجْحَدُونَ

وَلَقَدْ جِئْنَاهُم بِكِتَابٍ فَصَّلْنَاهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ هُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

 And the companions of the Fire will call to the companions of Paradise, “Pour upon us some water or from whatever Allah has provided you.” They will say, “Indeed, Allah has forbidden them both to the disbelievers.”Who took their religion as distraction and amusement and whom the worldly life deluded.” So today We will forget them just as they forgot the meeting of this Day of theirs and for having rejected Our verses.And We had certainly brought them a Book which We detailed by knowledge – as guidance and mercy to a people who believe. [The Noble Quran 7:50-52]

Third Clip: Shaykh Abdullah Awwad Al-Juahny recited verse 58 to 84 of surah Al-Isra. The shaykh became slightly emotional when he recited the verse:

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ وَلَا يَزِيدُ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا خَسَارًا

And We send down of the Qur’an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss. [The Noble Quran 17:82]

We are living in a time when we see people left and right interpreting the Quran according to their whims and desire. Whenever I come across interpretations of wishful desire, they remind me of this verse. Shouldn’t our heart tremble when Allah himself said that wrongdoers increase in nothing except for manifest loss from the Quran?
