I am very mesmerised by the lovely voice and Qiraah style of our beloved Qari Al Shaikh Shaikh Abu Bakr Ash-Shatri.Ever since my husband had introduced me to Al Shaikh's beautiful recitations, seven years ago,by Allah's swt Grace and Mercy,I have been able to increase my knowledge in The Glorious Qur'an. I totally enjoy Al Shaikh Shatri's relaxed and calm manner of reciting. It is very soothing to the soul. I hope that our beloved Al Shaikh will be able to visit us in beautiful Guyana where he can mix his beautiful voice rendering the pure words of Allah swt with our clean, fresh air...ameen. May Allah swt continue to bless our dear Al Shaikh and and his dear ones and grant them the bounties of this world and the bounties of the Here-after...ameen. May Allah swt also have mercy on all the Muslims and grant us goodness in this world and in the Here-after. Ameen.

Ever since, i always listen his recitation and allow my soul the joy of its serene soothing feeling> Its amazing what gift he has. May Allah bless my son with the deep knowledge of the Quran and an amazing voice such as that of As-Shatri.. May Allah make our children leaders of Muslims in sha Allah. May Allah reward him greatly.

  3. Assalam ualaikum ummatul Rassulullah. My name is Muhamad Saliu Seidy, am from Guinea Bissau. I just wanna use this opportunity to thank Allahu subhana wu tala for blessing mankind with such a man with a beautiful voice and for using it on the straight path (Islam).
    Words are not enough to explain how i feel when i listen to Abu Bakr All Shatri melancholic and touching voice especially when he recites suratul Ya-Sin and Fatiha.
    O Allah guide Abu Bakr Al Shatri and all the umma of Rassulullah to the straight path and grant me long life and the facility to meet him before i join the dead and take my life in mecca immediately after performing hajj and after expiating my sin. Ameen yarabb.

  4. Asalamu Alaikum rahmatulah wo barakatuhu, my fellow brother's and sister's in Islam. I greet you all in the Islamic greeting....I am here by talking about one of the most beautiful and lovely voice that has ever amazed me and contributed to the development of my knowledge especially in the side of Quran is no other person but Sheikh Abu Bakr Al Shatri. I definitely love all the reciter's and am praying for all of them that the Almighty grant each an everyone of them including each and every one of us jannah and enable us to see the right and fellow it. When ever I listen to Sheikh Abu Bakr Al Shatri, I feel joy even when am sad. Am praying for him long life and prosperity in life Am.een

    And recite Al qran with rhythmic and melodious tone, Words of effect mention in al quran, so be fitting to Brother Abu Bakar al shatri. His recitation has touched the hearts of millions around the world, his voice was blessed to recite Al qrran, we couldn't ask for better. After listening to his immaculate voice echoing the words of Allah, one wants to get closer to ASWA. I pray that Aswa grant him Jannahtul fir douse (ameen)iNSHALLAH. May Allah reward all those who help to achieve this greatness. Keep listening muslims, Al quran with this voice will inspire us all and inshallah take us closer to Allah swa.

  6. Assalamu alaikum. I must say that this is on of the smooth and inspiring voices I have had reciting the Holy Qur'an. May Allah bless the Sheikh and his family and preserve his voice knowledge and increase him in the work of Allah for the deen.
    Listening to this wonderful melodious recitation, one cannot but feel the presence of Allah in his heart and the desire to remain that close forever. Masha Allah! For sure As-sheikh is but an ayah from Allah to us all. May Allah guide and bless us to emulate the good work of the Sheikh. May Allah uplift Islam and Muslims everywhere in the wide World. AMEEN!

  7. Subhanallah.I have finally come to know truly who my Qur'anic recitation legend is. I myself is popularly called Shatri among my fellow Qur'anic study friends. Simply because of all the reciters of Quran is only Shatri's voice I can imitate without feeling I'm somebody else but me. This has made me retain this voice and most of my memorized chapters of the Quran only feel natural when using this golden voice. May Allah make us to be His family in Jannah as He promised that Ahlul Quran are His family. Ameen. I still do hope that one day we'll meet here before meeting in the hereafter.

  8. Abu Bakar Shastri is best reciter in my view. Especially when he recites Surah Naba (Ch : 78). I am fond of his voice. His sweetness and elequoence mesmerises me. His recitation of Quran takes one into the deepness of the words. May Allah give him mercy and every comfort.
    All Muslim brothers and sisters are requested to listen to the Quran carefully. Do make the habit of recitation of Quran. Everyone should recite some portion of the Quran everyday. And try to learn Arabic language so that it is easy to comprehend the meaning of the words.

  9. Greetings from Belgium - On November 5th 2009 I left a comment here on how much I enjoy Abu Bakr al Shatri's recitation - and I can still say that this many years later I regularly find his recitation online - Sometimes just to quiet the mind, other times because his style is somehow accessible to my Western ears. It would be a privilege to one day hear this in person, however, I am grateful for whatever means electronic or not to be able to listen and thus respond to the Message from his unique style of delivery.

  17. Assalamualaikum all. Just returned from Sheikh's beautiful recitation as ever as he led Salah taraweeh at Masjid Ramadhan in London. He was so humble and polite, friendly, well mannered and smiled abundantly.
    It was a dream come true as I used to try and copy his style of recitation whilst growing up, but obviously couldn't!
    Thanks Sheikh for taking time out to talk to me, I will never forget this day!

  18. Salama alaikum. Words cannot describe how much I love and appreciate this brother. Alhamdulillah, with his voice and beautiful recitation I have been able to memorize parts of the Quran. 9 years ago when I knew so little of the Quran and had equally meager in it, Allah guided me to love his voice and recitation, I thank Allah for that and this is the greatest gift of all. I pray to Allah to guide and protect him.

  19. May peace and blessings of Allah subhanaho wa taallah be upon all the Muslim ummah. I first listen sheikh abubakar's voice on Islam channel and after I bought some recordings. Sheikh's recitation of Quran al kareem touches the heart of a person who has the belief of youm ul akhirah. He is truly my hero and I want to see him insha Allah. I pray for his long life and may Allah accept his service to the ummah. Ameen.

  20. Mashallah I am mesmerised by this talented man's voice. He has helped completely replace music in my car with his recitation. I don't understand Arabic, but some verses he prays in Ya-Sin make my eyes well up and the hairs on my neck stand up.
    Allah has gifted me Hazrat Abu Bakr Al Shatri and my local Alim into my life. I've never been so content in my life. I'm 46! It's never too late Brothers and Sisters.
