    True say.

    Hope it's going well for you.

    I think the Duas of my teachers have been accepted alhamdulilah. They often say 'may Allah open your heart to it' and alhamdulilah lately the Quraan has been something new, like a new insight, a new understanding, a new sense of appreciation. It's not so passive as it used to be.

    It's true what Brother Nouman Ali Khan said about everytime you read the quran and the same suwar you will find a new life to it. I think now, finally, Allah has allowed me to get a taste of it as it's meant to be. Still got a long way but it's clear how there is no book or speech or anything like the Quraan. It is in no way from anyone other than the Creator Himself . It is clear to me now why the translations don't do justice and I don't even know much Arabic myself but there's nothing like the Quraan in its original form without a translation.

    Also what do you have to say about teaching/helping others with the Quraan? As in, at what sort of level should an individual be before they help/teach others?

    Lol ^ I applied last year with a friend but couldn't do it due to unforeseen circumstances. As if I'd be able to recite in front of people anyway. I only recite in front of those younger than me or really older than me, not even my mum or older siblings get to hear me recite (willingly) and if they happen to walk in then that's their luck (not that it's anything special like that at all). I'm pretty competitive tho but the shyness/awkwardness would ruin it for me.

    It was/is a thought and I'm considering it but highly doubt it for other reasons.

    Do they all recite in front of men? Aren't there any ladies?


    It's so scary subhanAllah the more you progress by the mercy and permission of Allah and I asked my Pappa to make dua for me. He didn't know and it slipped my mind to tell him and ask for his Duas. His reply made me cry, may Allah have mercy on all of our parents ameen.

    I guess it depends on your personality and where you are in your hifz. I'm way too shy and not competitive at all. lol I'd probably hope to mess up in the first round so I could just sit back and cheer for everyone else. Maybe ask your Sheikha where she thinks you are at and if it would be good for you?

    Also what do you have to say about teaching/helping others with the Quraan? As in, at what sort of level should an individual be before they help/teach others?
    I was told after 5 ajza to start teaching(though I have no one to teach at the moment). You can start anyone with the basic of reading and tajweed. My Sheikha also said that teaching is one of the best ways to solidify what you've learned.

    In my opinion one of the reason why we dont have greats like the big 5 anymore is because people are chasing the voice. When shaykh mustafa ismail sh menshawi sh abdel basit sh mahmoud ali bana and sh husary perfected tajweed. They read the quran in a way that was beautiful and that could not be mistaken for music. Sometimes i honestly dont know the difference between a modern recitor and nasheed artist

    Oh man, this is a problem for many.

    Some people are too into tryna sound like Tawfeeq As-Saaigh rather than perfecting their tajweed. I was just praying at a masjid for taraweeh, and young guys were made to lead. Okay, their voices were pretty nice, but subhanAllah, there were some serious blunders in their tajweed.

    Someone read in surat al kahf, :

    "Ith awwal fityatu illal kahfi

    the improperly placed shaddas took away from the meaning, and just didn't make sense..

    I mean, okay miss a few ikhfaas, that might be m3thoor, but seriously im talking lahn jaliyy. It takes away from your focus during salaah too.

    One said in faatiha, and faatiha should be down with every potential imam mind you..

    :Qayril maqdoobi 3laayhim..

    Where's the ghayn??

    In such cases, such people are not aloud to lead.

    Allahul Must'aan

    :wswrwb:

    If you read one of the interviews posted in this thread, the answer is "Khamsun laa tansaa - Five [ajza a day] and you won't forget." I think that is for those who are really good though. Two to three ajza a day is hopefully enough if we can't get to that level.

    Wondering, how often do Huffadh have to recite the Quran to keep it intact? Or how many Ajza a day?

    The_middle_road already responded, but I agree with him on listening to Husary for tajweed.
    Here are a couple of very nice links that have the "teaching" mualim recordings of him.

    This one is only for listening: http://en.islamway.net/collection/211

    This one has the recordings along with the Arabic and translations. It even has the English transliteration. Once you're on the website you would click the link on the left for "Quran Teacher/Reciter" and look through the reciters for "Hussary Mualim." I really like this website as they also have a memorization tool that you can listen to and repeat after for many reciters. I've found it very helpful.

    http://www.houseofquran.com/qhelp.htm#

    Hope that helps you.

    May Allah grant you ease in memorizing and recalling His Quran and make it blessing for you in this life and the hereafter. Ameen.
    Ameen Ameen to the du'a sis. Jazakillah khair. The links are very helpful Masha Allah.

    Jazakallah khair. Yes, I agree with you. Al Husary is not as melodic as Mishary. Insha Allah will download Husary's recitation.
