  1. Astaghfirullah brother.
    How can you ask if Allah swt has left us alone? This life is a trial, so we all need to guard ourselves and be better muslims. Allah gave is all our own will, we have to fight shaytaans wispers. Many people do not or are to weak to, so they are not acting upon the teachings. If you see a person doing wrong, it is not ALLAH swt that left them alone, it is They who have succum to the wispers of the shaytaan, this could be due to lack of quraan and obedience. But please be careful how you express yourself. Never question Allah swt like that, it is not the way we should think. If we remember Allah swt Allah swt remembers us, if we forget him we forget ourselves. May allah help us all in out worship and obedience dear fellow muslim. Amiin. Asalamu aleykum warahmatullahi wa barakatu

  2. This is a very good site for the recitions of the Holy Quran .Sheikh Salah Al Budauis is one of the best recitors of the World.I always like to listen the Holy Quran in his beutiful voice.I also like to ask my muslim brothers abour conditions of Muslim Ummah in these days.What do you think is the reason behind this? Has Allah the AllMihgty 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 prophicised about this age that :Nothing shall be left of the the Quran bet its writtings .May Allah enable All the Muslim Ummah to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran.

  3. Salamu alaykum. I can't describe the sweetness, the beuatifulness, the khushu, the calmness of the recitation of sheikh Salah Al Biudair, hafidahulah.

He is my all time favorite reciter. I recommend brothers and sisters to listen surah maa'idah till the end. I think he read it PERFECTLY. May allah protect the sheikh, and may allah preserve him and put him in janah al firdous al'alaa and us too insha'allah. Barakalahu fiikum.

  7. Mashallah sheikh Salah Al Budair is the amazing reciter I have ever listened. His manner of reciting is quite unique and beautiful. When he recites the holy Quran it seems as he is reciting directly from his heart. He mostly leads fajr salah in the prophet (saw) mosque which is always awesome! May Allah bless him with his bounties in this world and hereafter. I am the greatest fan of him because of his heart touching recitation and beautiful voice.

  8. i think the way the Saudi Arabian reciters pronounce and recite the Quran the same would have been the friends of the Muhammad. The patterns, sound track and intonations and features and effect their words produce is peerless however in unison with the message. Nothing gives my heart quietitude and serenity save their recitation--- salah al budair, Sudais ( eternal voice), Shuraiam, Humaid, Ghamadi and Bari thubaity.

  9. Masha Allah.. this is my favorite reciter.. i love his voice it's so nice also sheikh Shuraim.. and sheikh Sudais.. alongside sheikh Bukhatir.. masha Allah.. but this sheikh is my favourite....
