Quran Recitation

How to Read Quran like Professionals ?

As a Muslim, learning how to read the Holy Quran is a must. The Holy Quran is a book of wisdom and guidance. It's like the light Allah has sent for us to follow. In the Holy Quran, you find stories of our Muslim ancestors, the prophets, and the messengers of Allah. You get to learn from their experiences and their struggles. You also get to learn about Allah, his rules, and his words of wisdom. While reading the Holy Quran, you will find what makes peace pervades through your soul, that's why you shouldn't just be reading, you should be reciting the Holy Quran.

Reciting the Holy Quran raises your balance of good deeds, which leads you to the heaven. Our prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him) said: “Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will receive one good deed, and the one good deed grants more ten good deeds like it. I do not say that alif-lam-meem is one letter, but rather alif is a letter, lam is a letter, and meem is a letter.” (Sahih At-Tirmidhi).

To read Quran is different than to recite

Reading means to look at the words and to spell them out, simple as we know, but the act of reciting is different; it is the art of completely being into what you're reading. To recite is about consciously reading every word and grasping the full meaning of each verse, then obey what it says as the Holy Quran is full of instructions that Allah asked us as Muslims to follow.

When Gabriel the archangel first went down to our prophet Muhammad, he narrated to him a verse of the Holy Quran sent from Allah; that verse was "Iqraa" which means recite, "Recite in the name of your Lord who created {1}" Surah Al-Alaq. This Ayah (verse) implied the meaning of recitation, which is, in a nutshell, reading and following Allah's lead in the way Allah has described in the Holy Quran, as Allah has described what is Halal (righteous to do) and what is Haram (forbidden because it’s somewhat harmful).

Allah said: “There shall be no compulsion in the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. {256}” Surah Al- Baqarah.


The word "Qira'at" means '"readings" and in our religion, Islam, it refers to the various recognized schools of the way we recite the Holy Quran, and there are ten of them, each one deriving its name from a noted Quran reciter or "reader" (Qari).

The differences between all the "Qira'at" are trivial, it's about differences in stops, vowels, and sometimes letters. The Quran that almost all the Muslim world use today is a 1924 Egyptian edition based on the Qira'at reading of Hafs (the Rawi, "transmitter").

Some rules of the "Qira'at" are applied to all like:

  1. Conformity to the consonantal skeleton of the Uthmānic codex.
  2. Consistency with Arabic grammar.
  3. Authentic chain of transmission (that goes back to the original reading of our prophet Muhammad).

So thank Allah that one of the most perfect qualities of the Holy Quran is that it's guarded by Allah from being changed or having its verses misread. Allah said: "Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. {9}" Surah Al-Hijr.
