  1. Salam...
    I have no words to thank ALLAH for granting me a chance to be a Muslim...basically Quran and Islam are the naturally attracting powers for a person of good manner...
    May ALLAH Bless all of HIS Mercies and forgiveness on Ahmad Al Ajmi...once when i was in UK i found his recitation on Islam Channel in Uk...I Listen to him from morning till evening during my whole stay in UK...every time the cursed devil come near to me the recitaion grab me from him (the crused) and taken me closer and closer to the real and only Merciful Creator of the everything...
    No words to praise as the recitation of the words is praiseless but i would say that my closeness to ALLAH is because of the recitation of AL Ajmi.....i really pray for his forgiveness and wish that i could recite like him and i personally wish to meet him...nowadays i m in Riyadh...+966 564 434 809 is my cell number....
    i would add here a personal experience that show much touching and natural way of Ajmi's recitation is: once while i was in an Isalmic Book Shop in UK, an aged lady in jeans and half slevees entered the shop...Ajmi's recitation was playing in background... Sura Hasher Last Rakoo...really she cried a lot and was very ashamed because she was Muslim and was astrayed...Ahmad recitation takes your soul back to its reality and let you think of your actual life....really ALLAH Bless Ajmi and Guide him as well as us to be the real followers of Quran and Sunnah..Amin!
    Muhammad Haris Noman....Pakistani...working in KSA, Riyadh...May ALLAH Bless us all and let us to listen and obey the Quran as its really a Remedy for all the diseases and tensions of this world...

  2. Salam All,
    I totally agree with Sheikh Javed. His voice is sooo beautiful that it really touches your heart and soul and indeed it makes you cry. The first time I listened to him was in 2001 when I was in Hostel studying Masters.
    I decided to pick up a few audio cassettes from my home before leaving and this was one of them besides a set of Sudais-Shuraim.
    Believe me brothers, every time I listened to Sura Maaidah recited by Ahmed Al-Ajmi in Taraveeh Prayers during Ramzan, I found myself sobbing like a child. His recitation makes you forget all the worldly desires and happenings and makes you introspect and reflect.
    You will actually feel like you are standing in-front of Allah and you feel like begging for forgiveness and nothing else. You will feel like lying down in Sajda posture and keep seeking forgiveness from Allah. Such is his magical voice!
    When Al-Ajmi recites the verses, you actually feel like there IS a message in the Quran and Allah IS commanding you to do certain things. You feel like opening up the Quran and following the verses and read the Tarjuma (Translation). Atleast I get into trance and in melancholy.
    You feel that life is so worthless if one is not preparing good for the after-life. Please do listen to Surah Maaidah by him. I am downloading the entire Quran recited by Al-Ajmi.
    May Allah bless him and all the Muslims around the world and help us tread the right path. ...Ameen.

  3. ASA to all my Muslim Brothers & Sisters.
    May ALLAH bless Sheikh Ahmed Al Ajmi. First time I heard his amazing voice was 2005 when my first son was born. He has the most soothing, most beautiful voice I've ever heard. To me, he is the best Quran reciter.
    Friend gave us tape with collection of Sura's from the Holy Quran recited by Sheikh Ahmed Al Ajmi. I started playing the tape to my new born son in his bed time. The amazing thing is that my son started to make noise when ever Surat Al Iqlas started to play, at first we couldn't figure it out what was the problem, but soon we found out that our son was telling us that the tape is about to finish and we had to change to the other side (Masha Allah). I downloaded Sheikh Al-Ajmi's recitation from Surat Naba' to Surat Al-Iqlas and we have played to our son every night while sleeping.
    Now my son is 4 years old (May ALLAH Bless him), he can recite all the Sura's from Naba to Al-Iqlas, not so clear but with Sheikh Al-Ajmi style.
    Every time my son recites the Quran, I get tears in my eyes and I pray ALLAH bless Sheikh Ahmed Al Ajmi,
    ALLAH bless Sheikh Ahmed Al Ajmi,
    ALLAH Bless Sheikh Ahmed Al Ajmi.
    P.S. Brothers and Sisters of Islam, if you have kids, please play for them the Quran during their bed time because:
    1- They'll remember the Quran
    2- Quran will protected them
    3- Quran playing inside your home is beautiful thing

  10. I first listen to Ahmed Al Ajmi in 2007 when I was going to Gunjur. I then tried to find His CD. Definitely Imam Ajmi is one of the greatest reciters of The Holy Qu'ran. The manner in which He recites the Holy Qu'ran makes you fear God and makes you remember the existence of The TRUTH and only the TRUTH that is Islam as the true RELIGION.
    May The blessings of God be upon Him and all those who listen to His recitation and The Holy Qu'ran in general. Asalam Alaikum Warahmatullah.

  11. Assalamualaikum. I'm from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    I recommend to you muslim brothers and muslimah sisters, please listen recitation of Surah Saad by al Ajmi. Mashaa Allah, TabaraqAllah.

    I have no words to praise your beautiful voice. What a style allah has blessed you with to recite the holy Quran. For several years I heard 1 surah (Surah Zilzalah) in a voice that really touched you, but I didn't know the qari who was reciting it. Today , after several years, I came to know that he is "Ahmad al Ajmi", and I swear I am downloading your recitation. You have got heart throbbing voice. May allah bless you.
