  1. Assalamu alaikum brother mishary.I live in Canada.I dont know how many people in canada are listening and memorizing your morning evening duas.We spread so many CDs. May they become sadaqa e jariyah for you.We are some mothers who learned Quraan and Hadith of RasulAllah SAW and now to spread the authentic knowledge of Quran in new generation we are struggling.I dont know why but since we were talking about a little school I thought we might try to find your contact info .We know that we cant even afford its rent.We are already renting a canadian public schools four rooms for which we pay which is more than the fee that we collect and little goes to the teachers.Its a struggle but since we see unorganized bida, based islamic education we want to bring children to the true lovely religion of Islam.We are in toronto.We pray to Allah swt to send us help .A little school waqf for the understanding of Quraan.InshaAllah Allah swt will fulfill our dream and send help somehow.Wa man yattaqillaha yaj al lahu makhrajawn wa yarzuqhu min haisu laa yahtasib.

We pray to Almighty Allah to give you the ability and strength to keep up the humble attitude throughout till your last breadth, Aamin.
    May Allah (Swt) shower his blessings, Rahmah and Ni'mah on you and your parents and family and on all of us who are following your heartfelt recitation. I and my wife love it very much and I am sure it must be coinciding with the beautiful recitations of Rasoolullah (SAW) himself and the sahabas Allah knows best.

I hope all nonmuslim will realise that Islam is the only true religion if they see, hear and understand the Quran verse and it's meaning. InsyaAllah.. My Allah bless us..

    It is no doubt that the voice of sheikh al mishari is one of the most exceptional ones in the world. I hope to see sheikh al afasy as the imam of AL HARAM AL MAKKI within some years inshALLAH. I wish that I also recite the holy quran the way you do it. YOUR voice renders the heart of each and every muslim and compels the person to weep .
    I pray that you have a very long life and you keep on reciting the holy quran in even much better voice than what you are doing right now... I salute you, may ALLAH ALMIGHTY shower his blessings on you and your family.

  19. I really admire the recitation of Sheikh Mishary Alafasy.I am really speechless about its tone and rhythm. I heard a few other recitations but i never found them so spiritual. After listening to Alafasy's recitation, i got interested in The Holy Quran. I started listening to it in spare time, and after listening to Surah al Naba, I started reading TRANSLATION of Holy Qur'an. In other words, It was his recitation who made me read, listen to, learn, and read the translation of Qura'n. May Allah bless him with the best in this world as well as the world hereafter.

  20. Asslaamu alaikum warhmatulah wabarakaatuhu
    Brother, I listen to your recitations everyday. Unfortunately I cannot understand arabic but I thank Allah and my parents for bringing me up a Muslim. I am striving hard to have Islam and imaan deep in my heart. I had wished I was capable of understanding Arabic and learn about Islam. This continues to be my desire. I ask for your prayers in this. Inshallah I hope to achieve it one day soon.
    May Allah in His bounty grant you, your family and the islamic Umma blessings, long life, and the highest domain in Jannah!
