Biography of Abdulmohsen Al Qasim

Abdulmohsen Al Qasim

His full name is Abdulmohsen Bin Muhammad Bin Abdurahman Al Qasim Al Quhtani; he was born in 1967 in Mecca and currently occupies the post of Imam and Khatib in the mosque Anabawi Al Sharif in parallel with the post of Judge in the Sharia Court in the Medina.

Shaykh Al Qasim grew up among a religious family and started his religious learning at a very young age and at the hands of a number of prominent Shaykhs such as the late Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid, Shaykh Saleh Bin Ali Nasser, Shaykh Abdulaziz Bin Baz and others.

Furthermore, Shaykh Al Qasim received a B.A from the religious University of Al Imam Muhammad Bin Saud, then a Master’s degree in comparative Fiqh from the Higher Institute of Justice from the same university in 1989. The Islamic preacher then concluded his academic course with a PhD from the same institute in Islamic Fiqh in 1992.

In addition to being an imam and judge, Shaykh Al Qasim occupied other important posts such as being a member of the jury of the International Quran competition and member of the jury of King Abdulaziz competition of Quran recitation.

Known for his eloquence, modesty, pleasant voice and his mastery of Quran recitation; a number of audio and video recordings are available containing shaykh Al Qasim Quranic recitations and Khutbah that have taken place at the Masjid Anabawi.

At last, the Islamic preacher published a number of religious books in Fiqh and Islam in general but also gives lessons after the prayer of Isha at the Masjid Anabawi.


  1. His reciting style is really influential, and that makes me ponder about the meaning of the " ayah". May Allah grant me a sweet voice like Mr.Muhsin's.I think everyone who has the ability to read the Glorious Quran should thank Allah for that because many people who have just converted to the Islam are striving to do so. With that purpose in mind,New Muslims sacrifice their time and money to learn reading in Arabic as well as anything about the Islam. So, let us devote a portion of our time to read the Quran and go deeply in seeking to learn more about our religion, Islam.

  2. Masha Allaah....Abdul Muhsin Al-qassim is my favourite recitor, May Allah's be upon him...
    It was April 2009 when i went Umra and joined several prayers leading by Abdul Muhsin...Really he is amazing, because of his long breathing system which enabled him to recite the verses faster than the other reciters....
    Insha Allah I hope I'll pray after him ....
    salam to all Ikhwah..

  3. Assalam!
    Alhamdu li'Lah quand je l’écoute lire le CORAN je suis tout simplement heureux !
