  1. I & my mother was at Saudi Arabia from Durgapur/WestBengal/India in the year 2007 December for performing Hajj and we have heard recitation of Holy Quran in the voice of Shaikh Salih al Talib and Shaikh Maher al Muaeqily and since then we are very much fond of their voices as we performed salah behind them at Masjid -Al-Haram during this period. Since then we are very interestingly used to watch all three records of salah i.e. Fajr Maghrib and Isha to let us satisfy with the sight of Holy Ka'aba, Masjid -Al-Haraam and to hear the wonderful voices of all Imams particularly Shaikh Maher al Muaeqily and Shaikh Saleh al Talib. I wished to have another chance to perform salah following to these imams and wish strongly to see them once personally. May Allah bestow me this chance to perform Hajj again and to offer prayers in the imamat of these imams. May Allah prosper them and all the imams of Masjid Al Haraam and Masjid-E-Nabavi i.e. Shaikh al huthaify, shaikh al budair, shaikh abdul qasim and all those whom I could not recall here.

  3. ASSALAMALAYKUM WA-RAHMATULLAH-E-WA-BARKATU.
    First I like to praise Allah, that Allah Subhan-N-Tala had created the human being on earth, amongst us he had created the Imam of Haram sharif. SubhanAllah, Quran is the beautiful book in the galaxy, and the Best Quran Recites are very few, amongst that one is Sheikh Maher al Mueaqly. Mashaallah! Allah has given him very beautiful sweet voice. I heard him First when I was in Kuwait, and then I heard him Live when I enter Kabba (Makah), his voice had made my eyes filled with tear, my soul & my body was listening to him very deeply. Alhamdulillah I also had an opportunity to pray salah behind him. May Allah give me more opportunity to listen him live. Insha’Allah.

  7. AoA! I performed Umrah back in Aug 2007 with my wife after 3 months of my marriage and the first salat in Masjid Al Haram was Maghrib Prayers. It was lead by Sheikh Mahir and I found people crying. Being a Pakistani, Arabic is not our first language but I had read Arabic at school. When I tried to listen it carefully I also found tears on my cheeks. Indeed it is sheikhs vision that he propagates through his voice and the verses were Sura Zamar's last ayaats. May Allah give me more opportunity to listen him live. Insha’Allah. and May Allah give Sheikh Maher long life with health and prosperity and with devotion to recite in Kaaba till death. AAmeen

    I love Sh Maher's recitation. I always listen to it in my car and mashallah, he is unbelievable. I only found out about him during my hajj trip this year and so bought his CD.He just touches my heart with his recitation. He is one of my favorite reciters and I pray that Allah (swt) gives me a similar voice and allows me to recite the Qur'an like all of the reciters on this beautiful website. May Allah (swt) reward the brothers and sisters that put this website together, because now we can put a face to a voice. I have sent this link to all my Muslim friends so they too can benefit from this amazing website inshallah.
    Jazak AllahuWa Khayrum

  9. Allah has indeed blessed us with a person like Imam Maher whose soulful rendition of the holy Quran invokes our inner beings. May Allah bless him with a healthy long life and us with the pleasure of hearing him often. I write in from Bangalore, India where I watch the channels Saudi Quran and Sunnah besides Iqraa via a C band dish and receiver. This enables us watch the proceedings in the Haram anytime of the day and is another blessing indeed. The Iqraa channel features Imam Maher's rendition of Surat Kahaf every Friday which I try not to miss. We miss Imam Abdur Rahman as Sudais these days. Allah bring him back in Haram for us soon please. Aameen.

  10. My Aunt and I are very fond of his sweet, amazing voice. We have never heard another man recite the Quran the way he does. His voice is a miracle and It RACES you toward ISLAM. And you would not want to ever miss the chance of listening to his voice. We are eager to see him perform his salah live every day. Mahir al mueaqly rocks Islam all the way to HEAVEN!!! We are becoming better readers of the quran because of him. We learned many surahs because of him as well. We are going Inshallah to Saudia Arbia to see him in july and are very excited to pray after him and sad if we don't get a chance to hear his lovely voice.

  11. Assallam u aliakum my muslim brothers & sisters. Since I was in at MAKKA this year i-e 2009-2010 shaikh al maher has lift his great love in my heart soon after his prayers I came back to peshawar pakistan but to this time the prayer prayed in his leadership is reminding 24hours in my mind. I can certainly say that is a great and all time my favorite imam. May Allah maintained his voice as beautifully and as sweat as it is.
    Remember me and my all muslims brothers and sisters in prayers.

    I Live in Pakistan. I am Civil Engineer and is working as Additional Director in WAPDA for construction Projects. I have visited Saudi Arabia for Hajj in 2008 and for Umrah in Ramdan Mubarak.

I pray for the betterment all the Muslims living in different parts of the World. May ALLAH Almighty defeat the Non Muslims with all their bad intention against Muslims. Aameen

  13. I have always enjoyed and appreciated the Quran recitation of Shaikh Maher el Muaeqily. When I started my very recent trip to Umrah I invoked Allah to grant me prayers behing Shaikh Maher and to see him. Elhamdulillah during my stay in Makkah all the Maghreb prayers were led by him and during my last evening I saw the police escorting him out of the Masjid al Haram. My love in Islam for him has only grew and I am thanking Allah for giving him the lovely voice that makes us enjoy Quran even more.


  14. I have never heard so far in my life the Imam reciting Al Quran as good as Sheik Maher AlMueagily. When I performed Umrah recently I prayed many times Sheik Maher became the Imam (leading prayer) . His voice was w very soft and wonderful and I kept on asking myself who was the imam which was endowed with such good voice which encouraged me strongly to perform the prayer at Masjid Al Haraam. I wish I can come again to pray in this wonderful Masjid AlHaram.
    Allah is great!

  16. Shaikh Maher al Mueaqly is one of the Best Quran Reciters whom Allah has granted a sweet voice and has ability to control the listeners' spiritual emotions.

I loved his recitation of Quran and pray for his everlasting successes here and Hereafter. I wish if I do have another chance to offer prayers in his leading. Allahumma Aameen.

    Inshallah, I'll get to go Makkah and Madinah again and Inshallah i'll be able to pray as fantastic as Sheikh Muueaqly.
