Reciting The Qur’aan Like It Is Music

Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

It is not permissible for the believer to recite the Qur’aan in an incorrect manner as if it was music, upon the way of the musicians. Rather it is obligatory that the person recites it just as our Salafus-Saaalih recited it with proper recitation, being sad and with fear (of Allah).

– قال الشَّيخُ عبدُ العَزِيز بن بازٍ – رحمهُ الله

« لايجوز للمؤمن أن يقرأ القرآن بألحان الغناء وطريقة المغنيين بل يجب أن يقرأه كما قرأه سلفنا الصالح مرتلا متحزنا متخشعا »
