Quran Recitation: Halal Library

Quran Recitation include differences in stops,vowels, and sometimes letters. Recitation should be in accordance with rules of pronunciation, intonation, and caesuras established by Muhammad and first recorded during the eighth century CE. The maṣḥaf Quran that is in “general use” throughout almost all the Muslim world today, is a 1924 Egyptian edition based on the Qira’at reading of Ḥafṣ (the Rawi, “transmitter”), on the authority of `Asim (the Qari, “reader”).Each melodic passage centers on a single tone level, but the melodic contour and melodic passages are largely shaped by the reading rules (creating passages of different lengths, whose temporal expansion is defined with caesuras). Skilled readers may read professionally for urban mosques.
