Learn to correct your Recitation of the Qur’an
Almighty Allah says:
…and recite the Qur’an with measured recitation. (Al-Muzzammil 73:4)
In another verse:
Those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital. They [are the ones who] believe in it. (Al-Baqarah 2:121)
Welcome to a new interesting episode of “Correct Your Recitation” series with Sheikh Muhammad Salah and his guests. First Sheikh Isma`il recites the full surahs of At-Takathur (the Rivalry Competition), Al-`Asr (the Declining Day) and Al-Humazah (the Traducer). Surat At-Takathur is the 102nd chapter of the Qur’an with eight verses. It was revealed in Makkah. The surah warns those who spend their lives in acquiring more and more of worldly wealth, pleasures, position, and power till their death. Surat Al-`Asr is the 103rd chapter of the Qur’an with three verses. It is a Makkai surah that explains the way to success and the way to ruin. Imam Ash-Shaf`i said, “If people considered this surah well it will be sufficient in the way of guidance.” This surah advises those who believe to act collectively to strengthen their position in the Hereafter. It implies asking and inviting people to do righteous deeds and stopping them from falling into sin and disbelief.
Surat Al-Humazah is the 104th chapter of the Qur’an with nine verses. It is a Makki surah that sheds some light on the importance of restraining one’s tongue. The surah also explains the evils of preoccupying oneself with worldly wealth.
As usual Dr. Muhammad Salah begins his talk by reflecting on the meanings of the surahs. He narrates the following hadith,
Mutarrif narrated on the authority of his father, I came to Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) as he was reciting:” Abundance diverts you”. He said: The son of Adam claims: My wealth, my wealth. And he (the Prophet) said: O son of Adam is there anything as your belonging except that which you consumed which you utilized, or which you wore and then it was worn out or you gave as charity and sent it forward?
