  1. I used to listen to Minshawee when I was a young student in Cairo, Egypt. Almost 20 years later I came across his recitation again and I can still remember the first time I listened to him. May Allah bless his soul and forgive him his sins. He has touched many hearts by his sweet voice with qirah. I listen to him almost every night before I go to bed and I greatly appreciate those of you who maintain this website and May Allah richly reward you as I greet you in peace Assalam Alaikum

  2. Salam. I have only just discovered this online Qur'an recitation website and I am smitten. I am highly appreciative of the choice of Qaris available along with photos and a brief biography of each one-really unique.

Allah O Akbar...no words for his uniqueness...SubhanAllah...he recites and it strikes the heart....i have been listening to him when i was small boy and our neighbors(from Yemen) used to listen to him day n night. His voice takes me back to my childhood memories and now after going through the translations a few times, it really strikes the heart with all its meanings...Masha Allah...

  4. May Allah bless his soul. His recitation touches my heart and sinks in. It is not him but Allah's blessing through him. Little would he have known that 40 years after his death he would still bring tears to the eyes of those who listen to the Quran through him. May Allah bless him and overlook his mistakes and all the reciters of the Quran who have passed away.Amin
