You've basically answered your own question all I need to do is correct a few transliteration msitakes and put things together and explain. What you've heard before the recitation of al-Fatihah was the du'a (supplication) to take refuge by/in Allah from Satan the expelled which is recommended to do before beginning the recitation of the Qur'an as usually no ...

Having one's aorta cut is an Arabic idiom for dying. In other words, 69:46 is saying that if Muhammad were to make up revelation, Allah would kill him and nothing could stop that. The hadith is merely saying that Muhammad felt like he was dying from poison. Claiming a connection here simply because two sources used similar wording to communicate the same ...

According to Tamer's answer on this related question, the general Sunni opinion is that the three-minimum guideline is particularly for when reciting tiny ayat, and that a single ayah can be recited instead so long as it is of significant length. It doesn't elaborate on what counts as a significant length, but one wouldn't need to stretch when declaring ...

When the Quran is being recited/played, you are required to listen to it attentively. Allah (SWT) says: So, when the Qur’aan is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy -Sura Araf 7:204 This is a very clear command from Allah (SWT) that we should respect, listen and learn from the Quran whenever it is recited, so that we can receive ...

Note: This is a highly controversial topic and hence needs to be dealt carefully. First lets answer the easy part. Can she touch the mushaf while she is in that state and even recite from it? Many scholars unambiguously come to the point based on a hadith which talks about a letter written by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) stating. No one should touch ...

The answer to your question is given in a hadith of the Prophet (saws): Narrated Muhammad bin Ka'b Al-Qurazi: "I heard 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud saying: 'The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "[Whoever recites a letter] from Allah's Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter, but ...

This is called Al-Alif Al-Qaseera (الألف القصيرة) that goes on top of Al-Alif Al-Maqsoora (الألف المقصورة) — which is drawn looking like a ya' (ى) — to show that the pronunciation of the ya' is like that of alif. Traditionally, علىٰ (to mean "on") used to be written as علا (to mean "exalt" as in Qur'an 28:4): This caused confusion in distinguishing the ...

The Qari in the first is: القارئ محمد المنشاوي Qari' Muhammad Al Minshawi In the Second is: القارئ فارس عباد Qari Faris 'Abbad in the third: القارئ عبد الله الجهني Qari' Abdullah Al Juhani I hope this answers your question.

That two verses after the main verse of Ayatul-Kursi (255/2) are not a part of Ayatul-Kursi, but we sometimes read them for more sanctification and reward (thavab). The main verse (of Ayatul-Kursi) is: اللَّـهُ لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ مَن ...

This stop represents a point where there are two acceptable (but mutually exclusive) ways to read a particular line. In this particular example, This is the book without doubt, in it is guidance for those who fear God. This is the book; there is no doubt in it, a guidance for those who fear God.

The issue you are talking about is not related to what is normal... People these days in almost all Muslim countries with the exception of the Maghrib states and Somalia (some local exceptions can be added) are primarily confronted with the so prevalent riwaya' of Hafs 'an 'Asim رواية حفص عن عاصم (also read Why is the Hafs reading of the Qur'an so ...

Allah revealed the Qur'an in Arabic, not English. Translations of the Qur'an are not the Qur'an. At best, they're interpretations. As interpretations, each translator may or may not take different tacks as to how best to interpret the divine words: Some go strictly literal, word for word. Some will attempt to capture the implied meaning, often supplemented ...

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful According to the holy Qur'an: وَ إِذا قُرِئَ الْقُرْآنُ فَاسْتَمِعُوا لَهُ وَ أَنْصِتُوا لَعَلَّکُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ So when the Qur'an is recited, then listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy. (7:204) One of the points which we ought to notice when the Quran is recited, is ...

There are so many misunderstandings with the Qur'an that is spreading everywhere. It's depending on how you see yourself. Knowing yourself is the interesting part. Let's say you have read the Qur'an and its tafsir, and let's say you are wrong to understand it. That's okay as long as you realize yourself as a human who seek the truth, Allah Subhanahuwata'ala ...

Assalaam brother . The answers to your questions are: -- yes , there is no harm in having a copy of the Quran as pdf or audios in your cell phone. -- yes again , when you are reciting the Quran from smartphone , you are actually holding ur cell and not the Mushaf , so there is no harm. -- yes , but remember , the Quran pdf or audio are stored in a binary ...

In general, it is permitted to recite the Qur'an without touching it when you don't have wudhu. It is superior, when reasonably possible, for one to do wudu.

As The Prophet Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam like to hear the Quran, so should we. Ibn Mas'ud (Radiyallahu 'anhu) reported: The Prophet (Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said to me, 'Recite the Qur’an to me.' I said, 'Ya Rasoolallah! Shall I recite it to you when it was revealed to you?' He (Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said, 'I like to hear it from ...

Quran itself describes its purpose it is revealed so that it is a source of guidance and people ponder over it. Reciting it, without understanding defeats the basic purpose of it. We should make Quran a center of our knowledge and actions.

It's ok to do this as it was narrated that there was nothing prevents the prophet from (reciting) Quran except for Janabah: لَمْ يَكُنْ يَحْجُبُهُ عَنِ الْقُرْآنِ شَىْءٌ لَيْسَ الْجَنَابَةَ " Nothing would prevent him from (reciting) Qur'an except Janabah."

(Disclaimer: The Hadith presented below are mostly quoted from Sunni Sources. So, follow them at your own interest.) Apart from virtues of reading Qur'an, which are plenty, there are Hadith which suggest recital of Qur'an as a highly recommended act. E.g. Sunan Ibn Majah Chapter No: 7, 1343 and Chapter No: 1, 217. As, Sayyid said (although his answer looks ...

The surah is a prayer. Had there been a 'قُلْ' (Say) in the beginning, just like the last two surahs, the objection wouldn't have arisen at the very first place. It would have meant that God took the initiative to teach mankind how to pray for guidance. However, a different style has been adopted here by dropping it. Why? Javed Ahmad Ghamidi offers an ...

My answer on Can we recite two or more surahs in one rakat when praying? is more general but you can recite what you want. You even can repeat in each rak'a the same verse or surah, it is up to you and what is easier for you. Of course there are some limitation for example in the fatwa I linked as a reference at the bottom of this answer somebody asked ...

This is a mix of two things: A transliteration of an Arabic text: as there are no fixed rules or at least those people whom transliterate don't use the exact rule or at least don't explain wich of the common rules they use.

I asked about this when I was learning to pray: Going from "never prayed in my life" to my first prayer? Nowadays, learning to pray is usually a matter of following whatever YouTube video you find helpful. There's many videos on YouTube giving instructions on how to pray---pick one you like. When people told me to "learn from YouTube", it felt ...

That is called hamzat al-wasl, which means that in normal cases the alif is, as you were told, silent. Some styles will write the symbol above the alif, but others will just leave the alif unmarked: It is the same either way. However, if it's at the beginning of speech, you can't just leave it silent. How it's pronounced in those cases is a bit tricky, ...

They are identical. When you have the letter waw (و) following a tanween (تنوين), the rule is to apply idgham (إدغام). Idgham in recitation means pronunciation of both that tanween with a nasal n sound and the waw as separate letters. In the first form ('Uthmani), the tanween marks are not vertically aligned (there is a slight angle), which denotes idgham. ...

In his tafsir of verse (73:20) imam al-Qurtobi has quoted some fiqh views on the necessary amount to recite (My own translation take it carefully): ... فاقرؤوا ما تيسر من القرآن ، فاقرؤوا ما تيسر منه محمول على ظاهره من القراءة في الصلاة فاختلف العلماء في قدر ما يلزمه أن يقرأ به في الصلاة ; فقال مالك والشافعي : فاتحة الكتاب لا يجزئ العدول عنها ، ولا ...

I am a native arabic speaker. No, there is no difference in the pronounciation of them. you can listen to an automatic voice using the voice icon in google translator: test it here. if you use the Arabic diacritics, you will get a good automatic pronociation.

It is an irregular (شاذة) qira'a. It is to be interpreted as an explanatory addition (tafsir) by a sahabi, not part of the Quran itself. Reference: وقراءة بن عباس في مواسم الحج معدودة من الشاذ الذي صح إسناده وهو حجة وليس بقرآن فهي على هذا من القراءة الشاذة وحكمها عند الأئمة حكم التفسير — Fath al-Bari 4\290 , 3\595
