For a long time, I have been looking for a simple interface to upload the Arabic Recitation of the Holy Quran. Insha’Allah, I hope this attempt will make it easier for us to listen to the recitation of the Quran on the web (you can download this as well – right click and save).
For those new to the Quran, the word Quran (kurr-‘aan) itself means recitation. The Quran is the last revelation to humanity and has been unchanged since it was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, in the 7th century CE. The Quran’s 114 chapters (Surahs) and 6236 verses (Ayahs) are the source of every Muslim’s faith and practice. The Quran is also divided into 30 parts called Juz’, for ease of reading, as some Surahs are long and some short.
The Quran has had such a powerful effect on all those who have read its words; From Umar ibn al-Khattab, one of the greatest enemies and persecutors of Islam, who read the first 14 verses of Surah Ta-Ha and was so struck by them, he not only became Muslim, but also one of Islam’s strongest champions; To German born convert Muhammad Asad who described the Quran as “the ultimate manifestation of God’s grace to man, the ultimate wisdom, and the ultimate beauty of expression: in short, the word of God.”
I hope you find this helpful. More recitations may be added later, insha’Allah.
