It goes to the grace of Allah that He has
provided both Muslims and non-Muslims with
a comprehensive book of guidance.
The path to salvation lies through the Holy
Quran. Although the blessings can be
received just by verbally reciting or listening
to the verses of the Quran, it is imperative on
us, when the Quran has come for our
guidance, to try and understand the context and the meaning of the verses contained in
the Book. It is in this context that this 42 Audio CD set proves to be a priceless addition
to any Muslim household.
The real plus of this 42 CD Quran set besides Qari Shakir Qasmi's recitation and
Pickthall's translation is that every single 'ayat' follows a translation. In some previous
works of this nature, whole 'rukus' were recited before the 'ayats' in that ruku were
translated together. By translating each 'ayat' separately, the listener after repeated
listening of the verses and their individual translations would be able to come to terms
with the word for word meanings of the Arabic words used in the Quran.
Qari Shakir Qasmi once again proves that his voice is best suited for the recitation of the
Holy Quran. Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall's English translation is read in a clear and
crisp manner by Aslam Azhar.
