THE MERIT OF RECITATION OF THE NOBLE QUR’AN IN A PLEASANT VOICE
Abu Lubabah Bashir bin Abdul-Mundhir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (Sala-l-lahu alayhim wa salam) said, “He who does not recite the Qur’an in a pleasant tone is not of us.” [Abu Dawud Riyaadu-s-Saliheen Hadith no: 1007].
The words “is not of us” mean that he is not following the way of the Prophet (Sala-l-lahu alayhim wa salam) with regard to the recitation of the Qur’an. This Hadith also induces us to recite the Qur’an with a sweet and touching voice because the recitation of the Qur’an in this manner enhances its effect.
Asking others for dua is praiseworthy, however, we shouldn’t be dependent &reliant on the duas of others whilst we don’t do dua for ourself.
