  1. This is a very good site for the recitations of the Holy Quran. Sheikh Zaki Daghistani is one of the best recitors of the World. I always like to listen to the Holy Quran in his beautiful voice. I also like to ask my muslim brothers about conditions of Muslim Ummah in these days. What do you think is the reason behind this? Has Allah the Almighty left us alone? Why the condition is going to be the worst? I think this is happening because the muslims are not acting upon the teaching of the Holy Quran these days, and Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) has prophecies about this age that :Nothing shall be left of the the Quran bet its writings. May Allah enable All the Muslim Ummah to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran. I will never forget this voice

  3. Beautifull recitation of soerah Bakarah in a very soothing and calming way. Very good to find rest in and very good to listen to late at night. When everything is calm in the house and people gone to bed, then listen to this recitation and you will find yourself in a very spiritual state of mind.
