One piece of advice

Beautiful siteMy daughter is using it to learn her SurahsI would have just one comment to make and I advise you to consider it as it is coming from one who is an experienced Qur’an teacherplease try to change the Qari from Mishari to Husary or someone similar because Mishary is really not adequate for learners as he is at times too melodious and foregoes clear pronounciation of letters and ahkaam in favour of the melodyFor learning beginners you need a slow and clear reciter to help them hear every syllable and every letter being pronouncedI urge you to consider my adviceBarakallahu feekum.


About Surah Al Fatiha

This surah is of Meccan origin. She was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad — may Allah bless him and salute! — to hijra. Sura consists of 7 ayats. It is called the «Opening Book» (al-Fatiha), because it is the first surah in order of location in the Noble Quran and the first surah, sent down completely.

This surah tells about the totality of ideas and the general meaning of the Quran, which confirms monotheism, is good news for believers, warns about the punishment of unbelievers and sinners, indicates the need to worship the Lord, the path to happiness in the present and future life and talks about obeyed Allah and found bliss, and about those who disobeyed Him and were at a loss, and therefore this surah is called the

«Mother of the Book.»


Dear brothers (and sisterss) at mount Hira. When I became a Muslim, your website was my primary source to learn short Surahs. I was very happy with the step by step translation and recitation allowing me to catch my breath and memorize each verse slowly at my own pace.

May Allah bless all your efforts with bounty and blessings and peace. May I ask who is the Sheikh used for recitation in all the lessons? He has a wonderful recitation method and now all my recitations is coming out like his.
