There are certain reciters who from their long repose in the shade of the Quran, their traveling its depths, and their sipping of the sweetness of its waters deliver to you the Remembrance in a clear, direct, cataclysmic and penetrating way.  When one hears it for the first time they never forget it. What is one left to do other then let the tears roll down the face.

May Allah be pleased with and have mercy on Sh. Muhammad Siddiq Minshawi. When I hear his recitation it is as if I have been transfered from this world to a higher place. What I get most from his recitation is the understanding that their is no doubt in Him. He is Living and He is existing, Glory be to Him who guided us to this.



They said: “O Moses! whether wilt thou that thou throw (first) or that we be the first to throw?”
He said, “Nay, throw ye first!” Then behold their ropes and their rods-so it seemed to him on account of their magic – began to be in lively motion!
And Moses conceived a fear in his mind.
We said: “Fear not! for thou hast indeed the upper hand:”Throw that which is in thy right hand: Quickly will it swallow up that which they have faked what they have faked is but a magician’s trick: and the magician thrives not, (no matter) where he goes.”
So the magicians were thrown down to prostration: they said, “We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses”.
(Pharaoh) said: “Believe ye in Him before I give you permission? Surely this must be your leader, who has taught you magic! be sure I will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, and I will have you crucified on trunks of palm-trees: so shall ye know for certain, which of us can give the more severe and the more lasting punishment!”
They said: “Never shall we regard thee as more than the Clear Signs that have come to us, or than Him Who created us! so decree whatever thou desirest to decree: for thou canst only decree (touching) the life of this world.
“For us, we have believed in our Lord: may He forgive us our faults, and the magic to which thou didst compel us: for Allah is Best and Most Abiding.” (Surah 20:65-73)
