  1. Subhana'Allah, this reciter is till today my very best reciters. It's a wonderful gift from Allah to be able to have his entire recitation and being able to listen to it. Because there was a time I could only listen to one Surah of his recitation.
    This was surah Al-Anam back in 1993 at it was on cassette player. And it helped me with the memorization of that surah. But now his entire recitation Alhamduli'Allah. Baaraka'Allahu feekum.
