Listening to Quran

Welcome to this section of the website where you have the chance to listen and experience how the Quran sounds when it is recited. It is recited with Tajweed (Arabic: تجويد‎), which means the pronunciation rules of the Quran. It is also recited with Tarteel (Arabic: ترتيل‎), which means to recite it slowly and beautifully.  This word is used in chapter 73 verse 4 of the Quran: “and recite the Quran in slow measured rhythmic tones.” Muslims believe that this book is the word of God and so Muslims try their best to beautify its recitation.

Al-Fatiha (The Opening)

Sūrat al-Fātiḥah (Arabic: سُّورَةُ الفَاتِحَة‎) is the first chapter (Surah) of the Quran. Its seven verses (ayat) are a prayer for the guidance, lordship and mercy of God. This chapter has an essential role in Islamic prayer (Salāt). The primary literal meaning of the expression “al-Fātiḥah” is “The Opening,” which could refer to this Surah being “the opening of the Book” (Fātiḥat al-kitāb), to its being the first Surah recited in each cycle (rakʿah) of prayer, or to the manner in which it serves as an opening for many functions in everyday Islamic life.

Ayat-ul-Kursi (The Throne Verse) - 10 Different Styles Recitation

by Mishary Al-Afasi | Quran

English Translation

Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. [255]
