Book Name:Tilawat-e-Quran Aur Musalman
Dear Islamic brothers! Let’s have the privilege to listen to a few Madani pearls of recitation of the Holy Quran. First listen to the following two blessed sayings of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم:
1. The Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: Recite the Holy Quran as it will come to intercede for its reciters on the Judgement Day. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 314, Hadees 1874)
2. The Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: The best worship of my Ummah is recitation of the Glorious Quran. (Shu’ab-ul-Iman, vol. 2, pp. 354, Hadees 2022)
3. The Holy Quran should be recited in an exceedingly elegant voice, and if somebody does not possess a pleasant voice, he should try to beautify his voice when reciting. However, it is impermissible to recite in such a tone that causes the improper utterance, missing or adding letters, like the way that singers do. Take utmost care in upholding the rules and regulations of recitation [Tajweed]. (Durr-e-Mukhtar, Rad-dul-Muhtar, vol. 9, pp. 694)
4. It is Mustahab to perform Tilawat in the state of Wudu, facing the Qiblah, and whilst wearing good garment. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, part 3, pp. 550)
Remaining Madani pearls regarding the recitation of the Holy Quran will be mentioned in the Tarbiyyati Halqahs [learning circles]. Therefore, do attend the Tarbiyyati Halqahs in order to learn them.
