What Are The Best Ways Of Reciting Qur'an?




Qur'an recitation is an act of worship and whosoever wish to recite Al-Qur'an must fulfill the below obligations before he can have a full reward from Allah Azawajal.

  1. To ensure that one's body and clothes are pâk (clean).  
  2. To ensure that the place where the Qur'ân is to be recited, together with its surroundings are clean. 
  3. To use the miswâk before reciting the Qur'ân. 
  4. To make wudu before the recitation. 
  5. To sit facing the Qiblah. 
  6. To place the Qur'ân in a slightly elevated position. 
  7. To refrain from haste and urges to complete the recitation quickly. 
  8. To weep when reading verses of fear and Jahannam and to  express joy when reading verses of Jannat and glad tidings. 
  9. To read with tajweed (correct pronunciation). 
  10. To read A 'ûdhu and Bismillâh at the beginning. 
  11. To read with a sweet (distinct and pleasing) voice and not in a 'singing' tone.
  12. To read in a loud voice if one does not apprehend insincerity (on his own part) or cause a disturbance to others. One should be especially cautious not to read even the Qur'ân loudly if it (such reading) shall cause a disturbance to any person reading salâh. 
  13. To refrain from talk of any sort whilst reading the Qur'ân. However, if one is compelled by circumstances to talk, even if it is to answer the Islâmic greeting, then one should resume one's recitation with 'A'ûdhu'. 
  14. Our Nabi would not make 'khatm' of the Qur'ân (complete recitation of the Qur'ân) before 3 days. (Ibn Sa'd)

Allah عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ says,

مَنْ يُّطِعِ الرَّسُوْلَ فَقَدْ اَطَاعَ اللّٰهَ ۚ

"He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah;

(4: Verse 80)

 Nabi ﷺ says, 

One who loves my Sunnah loves me  and the person who loves me, will be with me in Jannah.’ [Tirmidhi]


All praise is due to Allah,may He bless the Prophet Sallah Llah Alei Wasalam and his companion and let's die in the path of Qur'an and Sunnah.
