  1. Ma Sha Allah!!! Marhaba!!! What a sight!!! Silvery Gift of Allah in the Ka’bah!!!
    At first I watched Makkah Taraweeh in the Ramadan 1432/2011. I became wondered at Sheikh’s variety of recitation in different Surahs and signs. Allah the merciful glorified him by an electrifying voice. Sheikh ‘Abdullah Al-Juhany is a picture creating reciter.
    Various moments like stream flow [Nahr] or drizzling; sometimes like flying bird or stormy; quickly, slowly, lovely; occasionally emotional and too frightened tune in the signs of Akhirah. As well we see different histories at his voicing. Watching the sights I thought I may try to express feelings in paper. Then I wrote an article that is being continued to update as well added more reciters with their Qira’ah.
    I am a Bangladeshi. Previously I never thought about writing in English. It was very difficult to me. Even I did not/could not read English book or newspaper. So I think Allah made me to start English by voice of Sheikh Juhany. As well Al-Quran is the centre and heart of all kinds of art, literature and culture.
    To enjoy Sheikh’s absolute brilliance and radiance we may observe Kaba Taraweeh and Salaat. Sheikh transmits by different alters in Taraweeh and regular Salaat. Just an example: Sheikh’s addressing of the Surah Fatiha is exceptionally glorious and by diverse of tunes. May Allah grant Sheikh & others Imams also us best gifts in the earthen life also in hereafter.

  2. Masha Allah. I am from Pakistan. My city is Quetta. I like each Imam of Haramain sharifain. Actually they are the king of the world. I proud on them. They are the lucky persons through all over the world. Why? Because ALLAH AZZA WA JEJJ gave him Imamet of Masjid e Haram & Masjid e Nabvi. I have got the chance to perform Hajj twice in my life, in 2008 & 2010. I am still remembering these great personalities of world. It is my great wish in life to meet face to face with them with my family members. I pray to ALLAH AZZA WA JELL to give a chance to me and my family members to come to KSA to perform Hajj & meet with the said personalities.
