  1. Assalaamu-Alaikum to my many Muslim sisters and brothers. I am writing from Guyana on the continent of South America. I am very mesmerised by the lovely voice and Qiraah style of our beloved Qari Al Shaikh Shaikh Abu Bakr Ash-Shatri.Ever since my husband had introduced me to Al Shaikh's beautiful recitations, seven years ago,by Allah's swt Grace and Mercy,I have been able to increase my knowledge in The Glorious Qur'an. I totally enjoy Al Shaikh Shatri's relaxed and calm manner of reciting. It is very soothing to the soul. I hope that our beloved Al Shaikh will be able to visit us in beautiful Guyana where he can mix his beautiful voice rendering the pure words of Allah swt with our clean, fresh air...ameen. May Allah swt continue to bless our dear Al Shaikh and and his dear ones and grant them the bounties of this world and the bounties of the Here-after...ameen. May Allah swt also have mercy on all the Muslims and grant us goodness in this world and in the Here-after. Ameen.

  4. Abu Bakar Shastri is best reciter in my view. Especially when he recites Surah Naba (Ch : 78). I am fond of his voice. His sweetness and elequoence mesmerises me. His recitation of Quran takes one into the deepness of the words. May Allah give him mercy and every comfort.
    All Muslim brothers and sisters are requested to listen to the Quran carefully. Do make the habit of recitation of Quran. Everyone should recite some portion of the Quran everyday. And try to learn Arabic language so that it is easy to comprehend the meaning of the words.

    And I testify that Allah, I love him for the sake of Allah the Exalted !
    Your brother.

  12. May peace and blessings of Allah subhanaho wa taallah be upon all the Muslim ummah. I first listen sheikh abubakar's voice on Islam channel and after I bought some recordings.

I pray for his long life and may Allah accept his service to the ummah. Ameen.

    Allah has gifted me Hazrat Abu Bakr Al Shatri and my local Alim into my life. I've never been so content in my life. I'm 46! It's never too late Brothers and Sisters.

  14. I am truly inspired with the way Aboubakar shatri recites the holy Quran and any time I listen to his audio cassettes I always have the zeal to go and memorize the Quran...eventually I am now in a Quranic memorization school .. I am an English graduate student. I thank you a lot aboubakar shatri for giving me the courage and zeal to go and struggle in the part of Allah. May Allah guide all of us.

  15. Assalamu Alaikum,
    Abu Bakr Al Shatri is the best, i am now 10 year old and I'm memorizing Surah Yasin. I am grateful that Abu Bakr Al Shatri is helping me with his Quran recitation on surah Yasin i memorized Surah Ar Rahman. That time i didn't know Abu Bakr Al Shatri but he is better i think Mishary and Abu Bakr Al Shatri are the bests including Saad El Ghamidi

  16. Greetings from Columbus, Ohio USA - I have enjoyed this Brothers unique expression in the recitation of the Majestic Qur'an via computer many times. For my American ears his voice is something I understand - I find peace in listening to his gentle and eloquent voice making the Qur'an accessible in this day and age in this far away place. Thanks from my heart!

  17. Assalam u alaikum....Masha Allah what beautiful voice and calm manner in which Sheikh prays.....All praises to Almight Allah....last night Sheikh ws in Mozambique and performed Isha Salaah...as soon as he said Alhamdu lillah....tears started rolling....thinking who beautifully he recites and with so much devotion...Allah reward him abundantly ameen...wslms

  18. Salaama Alaikum,
    I have been going through some wordly-tough-times few weeks ago, and nothing warmth my heart than a beautiful recitation of Al-Kahf with a combo of QuranFlash to read as the Sheikh, may Allah reward him, recited. May Allah make him as pure as his exquisite voice, may he be rewarded all the Khushoo(humility in heart) he brought us.

  19. mashaalah allah has blessed him with a marvelous voice and in what better way should he use it other than reciting the glorious quran. may allah give you your family and all your loved ones jannah. i would really appreciate it if one of you my muslim brothers and sisters could kindly tell me where i can learn qira online i live in kenya jazakalah.

  20. Assalamu alaikum brothers in Islam... I am ansumana from the Gambia and I was an English student but I do listen to the powerful reciter shatri and his recitation really inspired me into learning the noble quran by going to a boarding school where quran is memorized... So I thank him a lot and wish him long life and success in all his endeavours.
