- Islam, the Quran & Muhammed
The Quran is the religious book of Islam, also sometimes transliterated as Quran, Kuran, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran or al-Qur’ān. It is regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language and no human being can possibly make a sentence similar to it, this is a challenge in the Quran for mankind and Jinn to try and get together and make one sentence like it, it is a work of art, the poetry is out of this world for those who can understand it. Muslims hold that the Qur’an is the verbal divine guidance and moral direction for mankind. Muslims consider the Holy Quran to be the final revelation of Allah. The text of the Holy Quran hasn't changed since it came into this world, unlike all the other religious books of the previous prophets. This has also been guaranteed by Allah in his book. Read it and you will be amazed.
A list of all the best Quran recitations can be found below. The Holy Quran is meant to be read in a beautiful voice, with Tajweed. Tajweed of the Holy Qur'an is the knowledge and application of the rules of recitation so the reading of the Qur'an is as the Prophet Mohammed (peace and blesings be upon him), recited.
All the Shaikhs below had to spend years perfecting their Quran recitation under the guidance of a qualified teacher. We as Muslims all have to be able to recite the Quran properly with Tajweed, the least we can do is make an effort and try and learn it, even though it may be difficult for some who have reached old age etc.
