Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has told us to:
“Adorn the Qur’an with your voices.” [Abu Daud & Nasai]
A believer may ponder upon how to recite the Quran beautifully? Well, there are many ways that can help you to recite the Quran beautifully and melodiously. Reciting the Quran in a beautiful voice holds a greater importance as it clearly shows the efforts of a believer. Quran recitation should not be treated merely as a task that you have to complete daily. Rather, we should know that the Quran is our ultimate connection with the Almighty and a clear guidance. Hence, we should recite in a beautiful way and also listen to it with full attention. The verse 4 of Surah Al-Muzzammil signifies the importance of reciting the Quran in a precised and measured way.
“Or add to it, and recite the Quran with measured recitation.”
Learn How to Recite the Quran melodiously by Simple Tips
- Learn Tajweed to recite the Quran melodiously.
Tajweed consists of sets of rules that define the pronunciation of each word of the Quran. Simply put- Tajweed tells us about the pronunciation of each word. Its importance can be understood by the fact that different pronunciation can change the whole meaning of an Ayah. So if you will not apply the Tajweed rule, you may change the meaning. Hence, Tajweed is a necessity. And as we apply Tajweed and give due right to the letter, we automatically improve our recitation.
Imaam Muhammad Ibn al-Jazari (R.A.) states that:
“And applying Tajweed is an issue of absolute necessity, whoever doesn’t apply Tajweed to the Qur’an, then a sinner is he.”
- Learn the correct pronunciation, articulation, and intonation to recite the Quran beautifully.
The correct pronunciation along with accurate intonation is necessary during Quran recitation. This can be understood with two different letters such as Qaaf and Kaaf. The difference in “Q” and “K” plays an important role. Hence, it is very important for a believer to understand the delicacy of this matter. So in case of struggle, one should not hesitate to learn Tajweed rules and start applying them from basics. Intonation that is the high and low of your voice should also be measured so as to make your recitation correct and beautiful.
Almuhammadi Academy has highly qualified native Arabic Quran tutors that can help you learn Tajweed and make your Quran recitation beautiful.
- Gain thorough knowledge of rules and regulations to recite the Quran beautifully.
We all know that the Quran has certain rules while its recitation. We cannot go on reading it like any ordinary book. Nor can we just stop or take a break whenever we want. It has a set of rules at each point of the Holy book. Hence, we must be well versed with rules about when to pause, take a breath, and stop.
- Learn Arabic to get a better understanding.
A learner can learn the Quranic Arabic to understand the pronunciation, articulation, and intonation better. Also, it can be helpful in your Quran memorization or Hifz too. A better understanding of the grammar can further consolidate one’s recitation when applied gracefully.
- Recite the Quran with understanding
One of the best ways to beautify your Quran recitation is through understanding the Quran. Do not just recite the Quran for the sake of recitation. Understand each ayah with intensity. Let yourself loose in the Quran recitation completely. Gain knowledge about the Surah that you are reciting and see it add the element of beauty in your recitation.
It was narrated that “Abdur-Rahman bin Sa’ib said:
“Sa’d bin Abu Waqqas came to us when he had become blind. I greeted him with Salam and he said: “Who are you?’ So I told him, and he said: “Welcome, O son of my brother. I have heard that you recite Qur’an in a beautiful voice. I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) say:
“This Qur’an was revealed with sorrow, so when you recite it, then weep. If you cannot weep then pretend to weep, and make your voice melodious in reciting it. Whoever does not make his voice melodious, he is not one of us.” (Sunan Ibn Majah 1398)
