The Explanation Of Reciting The Quran In A Quiet And Loud Voice

Ash-Shaikh al-Imam al-Muqri ar-Ra’is al-Fadil Kamal Udin Abu Ishaq Ibrahim Ibn Ahmad Ibn Isma’il Ibn Faris at-Tamimi as-Sa’di read it and I heard it in the month of Ramadhan in the year 674 Hijri, informed us that: Abul Yaman Zaid Ibn al-Hasan Ibn Zaid al-Kindi informed us that: al-Qadhi Abu Bakr Muhamad Ibn Abdil Baqi al-Ansari informed us that: Abul Husain Muhamad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Hasnun an-Nursi informed us in the year 455 Hijri that: Abu Tahir Muhamad Ibn Abdurahman al-Mukhalis informed us that: Abul Qasim Abdullah Ibn Muhamad al-Bagawi narrated to us that: Shuraih Ibn Yunus, Muhamad Ibn Yazid al-Adami, Ibn Bazar and Harun Ibn Abdullah narrated to us and all said that: Ma’n narrated to us: from Mu’awiya Ibn Salih: from Bahir Ibn Sa’d: from Khalid Ibn Ma’dan: from Uqba Ibn Amir al-Juhani (Radi Allahu Anhu) he said that the Messenger of Allah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said,

“The one who recites the Qur’an quietly is like one who gives charity in secret. The one who recites the Qur’an loudly is like one who gives charity openly”

Akhbaranahu [1] Ahmad Ibn Abd ad-Da’im: Ibn Kulaib informed us that: Ibn Bayan informed us that: Ibn Makhlad narrated to us that: as-Safar informed us that: Ibn Urfa narrated to us that: Isma’il Ibn Ayash narrated to us from Bahir then he mentioned it.

He was born in the year 592 Hijri and died in the month of Safar in the year of 676 Hijri.


This narration is present in Sunan Nasa’i (no.2562), Musnad Ahmad (4/151 hadith no.17368, and its chain is [Hasan] good), Sahih Ibn Hibban (al-Ihsan: no.731, al-Muwarid: no.658, no.1791) etc. through the chain of Mu’awiya Ibn Salih.

The narration of Isma’il Ibn Ayash is present in Juz al-Hasan Ibn Urfa (no.84), Sunan Tirmidhi (no.2919 and he said: Hasan Garib), and Sunan Abi Dawud (no.1333) etc.

[1] Originally it is akhbarana, whilst in the manuscript it is akhbaranahu.


1. It is more virtuous to recite the Qur’an in a low quiet voice if there is no Sharia compliant excuse or reason.

2. The humankind should do all of their good actions for the sake of Allah’s pleasure only, and should always save oneself from showing off.
