Allah (SWA) ordered us in his holy book to recite the Qur'an with tajweed …" recite the Qur'an modulating." the system of tajweed serves as a guide to improving the style of quranic recitation. It was in this way that the Holy Qur'an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and also the manner in which he recited it. Therefore, the reader of the holy Qur'an longs to achieve the promise of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH): "whoever recites the Qur'an correctly and proficiently will be with the bountiful dutiful writers (the angels of the preserved tablet - Al lauh Al Mahfuz).

Every Muslim knows the importance of making regular recitation of the Quran a part of his or her life. But how many of us realize the importance of making our recitations beautiful?

Do you strive to beautify your recitation? Do you know why you should? And do you know how to go about it?

We’ll try to answer these questions in this article Insha’Allah.

“Beautify the Quran with your voices. Verily, a beautiful voice adds to the beauty of the Quran.” (Sunan Abi Dawud)

The Power of Beauty

“Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” – that’s not entirely true. If it were so, then human beings wouldn’t all universally consider roses to be beautiful. We wouldn’t all be mesmerized by the rising sun. Our hearts wouldn’t all ache while listening to a stunning melody.

All the disbelievers of Makkah wouldn’t fall down in sajdah listening to the Prophet (peace be upon him) recite the Quran.

Think about this. The Prophet Muhammad was considered eye-wateringly handsome by everyone who met him.

Why did Allah make His Prophet’s physical appearance so generally beautiful? It’s because it’s in human nature to be attracted by beauty. And it was important for the propagation of the message of Islam for its carrier to be attractive to people.

Not just that. Allah Himself is beautiful, and He likes beauty. (Muslim)

It’s true that sometimes our hearts can become blind to what is truly beautiful, and Shaytan can make what is ugly and sinful appear beautiful in our eyes. But this pseudo-beauty doesn’t hold water when compared to what Allah made truly beautiful.

The Prophet’s voice too was beautiful, and we all know the power of a beautiful voice.

“There is no doubt,” says Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, author of the famous commentary on Sahih al-Bukhari, “that the soul inclines towards listening to a melodious recitation [of the Quran] more than an unmelodious one because melody has the power to sway the heart into softness and make the tears flow.” (690)

The Quran is Beautiful

No. It was because the Quran itself is beautiful. Allah says:

God has sent down the most beautiful of all teachings: a Scripture that is consistent and draws comparisons; that causes the skins of those in awe of their Lord to shiver. Then their skins and their hearts soften at the mention of God: such is God’s guidance. He guides with it whoever He will; no one can guide those God leaves to stray. (39:23)

Notice how Allah describes the effect of the Quran’s beauty on those who fear Allah. First, it makes their skins shiver, and then it softens for their skins and their hearts.

The Quran’s beauty consists of two things – the makeup of the words themselves, and the meaning that those words convey. You can only feel this effect to the full extent if you understand what the words mean.

But if the Quran itself is so beautiful, what’s the need for striving to recite it in a beautiful voice?

Beautify the Quran

The Prophet Muhammad once heard a Companion reciting the Quran beautifully, and he praised him thus:

You have been given a Mizmar (sweet melodious voice) out of the Mazamir of the family of Dawud. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

The Prophet (peace be upon him) himself recited the Quran beautifully, and encouraged us to do so too:

Beautify the Quran with your voices. (Nasa’i 1015)

Notice that he didn’t ask us to beautify our voices, but rather to beautify the Quran. It’s like a precious stone in the middle of an ornate gold setting. The objective is, not to beautify the setting, but rather to beautify the stone.

The stone in itself is incredibly beautiful and precious. Being beautiful itself, it deserves a beautiful setting. The value of the setting in no way compares to the value of the stone; its job is only to enhance the latter’s attractions. It’s an inhuman instinct to beautify the things we value, and value things that look beautiful.

A beautiful voice in reciting the Quran is like a catalyst in a chemical reaction. It stimulates the heart and activates the emotions so that our hearts become more receptive to the Quran’s message.
