Reciting the Qur’an melodiously

Reciting the Qur’an melodiously
The Prophet (PBUH) used to recite the Qur’an in slow, measured, rhythmic tones as Allah had instructed him, not hurriedly, but rather “he would recite a surah in such slow rhythmic tones that it would be longer than it would seem possible.”
He would stop at the end of each verse
He commanded people to recite in a beautiful voice.
He said “Beautify the Qur’an with your voices and he said “He who does not recite the Qur’an in a pleasant tone is not of us.”
Unfortunately we find people now reciting the Qur’an quickly , without changing their tone and without any feeling.
We should put all our efforts into reciting the Qur’an with as much feeling as we can!

-Well the Prophet (PBUH) said “Truly the one who has one of the finest voices among the people for reciting the Qur’an is the one whom you think fears Allah when you hear him recite.”

  Once when the Prophet (SAW) complimented Abu Moosaa al-Ash’ari on the beauty of his recitation, Abu Moosaa said “Had I known you were there, I would have made my voice more pleasant and emotional for you.”

Let us remember, that the Qur’an is the word of Allah.
In it we find exhortations, warnings, glad-tidings, parables, stories of the past, commands and prohibitions.
Verses to make us think, reflect, cry, fear, hope, and fall down in prostration!
How can we recite all of 1 67586
   Without feeling!?
When we recite a verse of Qur’an we should imagine that we are trying to feel and convey the full message behind that verse.
Perhaps some of us don’t feel confident.
But this lack of confidence comes partly from not knowing the rules of Tajweed correctly and so fearing that we will make mistakes, and from not understanding the meaning of what we are reciting.
Let us work hard to remove these two obstacles by learning Tajweed and working towards learning Arabic.
