The Prophet in God's Own Words
Prophet Muhammad in the Qur'an
An exclusive project of Lastprophet.info marking the occasion of the Mawlid –Prophet Muhammad’s birth – three Qaris, or reciters of the Qur’an, Hüseyin Orhan, Halil Necipoğlu, and Ibrahim Helalşah respectively recite in Arabic the Qur’anic verses describing Prophet Muhammad. The English translation of these verses is read by Andy Boyns.
The three different reciters serve to illustrate the diverse ways in which the Holy Book of Islam, the Qur’an, is expressed through recitation, using the marvel of the human voice.
While Halil Necipoğlu, Imam of Istanbul’s historic Dolmabahçe Mosque recites in a way resonant of the distinct Istanbul style, Ibrahim Halalsheh reflects the traditional Arabic elocution, and Hüseyin Orhan is a synthesis of the two.
