:salam:

This is the original audio recordings in lossless audio format of a complete Hafs Murattal Qur'an recitation set by noble Sheikh Mahmud Khalil al-Husary. Entire set is an accurate rip of 40 CDs into flac (free lossless audio codec) format. The aim is to preserve and guarantee 100% original CD audio quality. Lossless audio compression produces a representation of digital data that can be expanded to an exact digital duplicate of the original audio stream.

This digital copy is about 10GB in size, however, you will be flattered and amazed if you listen to this wonderful recitation set. To play these files on Windows, I would recommend using free player called Foobar2000 (http://www.foobar2000.org/download). With this player you can also convert flac audio to mp3, ogg, and to many more formats.

Here are little technical details:

- Murattal, Hafs an 'Asim min Tariqi Shatibiyyah.
- Lossless edition as mentioned above.
- Original CD's are ripped into flac format.
- Errors are avoided and there weren't any so to speak.
- Missing files are found and replaced.
- Entire tracks compiled into 114 files.
- Properly tagged.
- Uploaded to the following fast server.
- There is no copyrights involved for "non-profit" use.

Following is a single link containing all 114 flac audio files in one zipped file of 10GB in size. You can use mass downloading utilities such as flashget (http://down6.flashget.com/fgf173.exe).

Projects in mind:

- Mujawwad style by Sheikh Mahmud Khalil al-Husary.
- Warsh style by Sheikh Mahmud Khalil al-Husary.

Short biography of Sheikh Mahmud Khalil al-Husary:

Also, check out our www.flawlessquran.com

He memorized the Qur’an when he was eight years of age, and studied in Al-Azhar. Then freed himself to study the Qur’an sciences, with his beautiful voice and excellent skill. He took first in the radio exam in 1944, and was a reciter at the Ahmedee mosque. He then went to Cairo and was at the Husaynee mosque from the year 1955. He was selected as the inspector for the Egyptian reciters, then deputy of them, until he became the head sheikh of the reciters in Egypt in 1961. He was of the first to make an audio recording in Tajweed of the Qur’an in the way of Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim, and his voice remained the sole voice on the Qur’an radio of Egypt for around ten years. He later made a recording of his recitation in the way of Warsh ‘an Naafi’, and then Qaloon, and Ad-Dooree, 1968, and in this same year made a Mu'allim recording of the Qur’an, and was also selected as chairman of the Islamic world reciters union. Sheikh al-Husary is known for the correctness of his recitation and adherence to the Sunnah, his distinctive deep voice and his long breath.

During his lifetime he not only recorded the Qur'ān six times in the transmission of Hafs (three murattal, two mujawwad and one mu'allim), but also recorded it in the transmissions of Qālūn 'an Nāfi', Warsh 'an Nāfi' and ad-Dūri 'an Abī 'Amr.

He traveled and visited many Islamic countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, and many became Muslim through him, by Allah’s Will. He called for the establishment of Glorious Qur’an libraries in all cities and villages. He willed one-third of his wealth to serve the Glorious Qur’an and its memorizers and spending in all kinds of charity.

He died, may Allah be merciful to him and make him of the inhabitants of Paradise, on Monday evening, the 16th of Muharram 1401 h, (24 Nov. 1980).

Alaykum Salam,

I agree. But "seeing" silent interest doesn't give me a motivation to jump to a next project and share it here. :)

Well, it's not that I am getting any encourage from the forums, since any motivation source of a Muslim is and must be his faith.

Anyway, no offense meant but I think such a jewel should be exhibited only at jewelry.

First off, Jazak Allah Khayr, I also look forward to 'al-Quran al-karim bi-tariqat al-ta'lim bi-riwayat Hafs 'an 'Asim'.

But as a side note, 10GB isn't exactly economical is it? That is far too large a file size for Quranic audio which only contains voice frequencies. When comparing that to the available MP3 Murattal recitations online, the MP3 seems the better option. A big file size doesn't necessarily mean the quality is supposedly better than the original sound source. Just a thought of mine, nothing critical (smile).

:ws:

There are plenty of mp3 sets out there online, they are very beneficial to listeners.

But this one is special in its quality. Remember, this is not .mp3 set boosted to .m4a to make the size large, it is a company produced CD's into converted to lossless audio format.

I agree that the file of that size (10gb) is hard to manage. However, there many wisdom behind:
1. These files can be converted to any lossless and audio cd format without quality loss.
2. Can be edited, cut or split for any beneficial Islamic work.
3. Can be converted into other audio formats with minimum loss of quality.
4. Besides all, this is Qur'an recitation by specialist in the field, it needs to be preserved as much as possible.

Non-muslims do it for their music, why should we not do it for Qur'an. Afterall, hard disks are now very cheep, internet is almost free.

As-Salamu 'Alaykum

Yes I already am informed that it is directly converted from the original source. But what my point is is that for example, with things like music, they have loads of frequencies so to preserve the audio data you can encode at extreme high qualities. With Quranic audios and Anasheed the audio data isn't packed with as much information, so to load it onto 10GB isn't the way to go. That's why we have compression, and compression doesn't necessarily mean that the end result will be deterioration in quality. Good compression means maintaining the original source but in the most compact form.

You can utilise compression to reduce the file size but yet maintain the perfect original high quality. Lossless in this case isn't effective as you're using the highest bitrate possible when you can encode at a compressed bitrate but yet still FULLY preserve the original source quality without ANY difference at all.

The example of that is, say you capture some video from the VHS, and the image is at a resolution of 480x320. Saving that video at the highest bitrate at 720x576 is pointless as it'll be using up more image and file size for no reason. Similarly if I had a microphone, for example, that records at a setting of 16KHz mono but yet I save it as a 48KHz Stereo MP3 at the highest quality possible - which subsequently results in a large file size, that similarly is pointless as it serves no purpose. The exact same principle applies to Quranic audio as lossless quite simply isn't required for Quran recitations as more economical means can be used.

Now of course, I understand your point about...
4. Besides all, this is Qur'an recitation by specialist in the field, it needs to be preserved as much as possible.

Non-muslims do it for their music, why should we not do it for Qur'an. Afterall, hard disks are now very cheep, internet is almost free.

...but the fact is saving it as lossless is pointless, period. Saving something that requires a lot of data and bitrate, i.e. a HD video of an Islamic conference (just an example) then something like lossless video will benefit from that greatly as there is a lot of minuscule data and detail that is needed to be preserved. But as for Quranic recitations, then that Alhmadulillah isn't that demanding in terms of data and can be saved perfectly identical to its original sourse and most importantly efficiently without the unnecessary use of lossless.

Extremely sorry for the long post, but I just wanted to clarify about this lossless setting and it's uses. Either way, I don't say this grudgingly against what you're doing but rather think you've done a good thing, just only wanted to clarify something - nothing else (smile).

Was-Salamu 'Alaykum

:salam:

I agree with you to some extent :)

The point is that, here we are talking about very old recordings that if you even preserve the original recordings even then you haven't done much because they are already recorded back before 1969.

Also there are some rare recordings that are already shared online as mp3 files, but with poor quality so much so that a student of qiraat -like myself- would have troubles differentiating the makharij and sifaat of huruf.

I collaborated with versebyversequran dot com. We faced so many technical problems with these mp3's. We found many technical errors, interruptions, cut off's that in the end pushed us to obtain originals where there was no such issues at all. If the CD is scratched then converted mp3 is going to have that cut off somewhere and there is no way around to fix it except if you reconvert it using new CD's and so on.

The point is that, let people convert down to other formats from original recordings such us these provided above and not from technically distorted mp3's. The ftp address I've provided is fisabilliah, the download bandwidth is unlimited.

Now, my main motivation to obtain Mahmud Halil Husari's "al-Muallim Mushaf" is for my students and in general students of Quran -tajweed- qiraat. There is already mp3 set on some websites. But all of them are so low quality that at times it is difficult to differentiate sifaat and makharij of letters. That means the sole purpose of this recordings is lost this way. I asked those brothers many times to provide better quality, but so far I got no respond. I made many inquiries through friends from Egypt, but failed to get result.

Then I ended up deciding to search for the very original recordings. Alhamdulillah, I was able to find them in our libraries here in states. These LP sets brought here about 40 years ago from Egypt.

Today it became challenge to find better quality recitations of murattal style by:

Mustafa Ismail (murattal & mujawwad)
Muhammad Rifat (I doubt if there is any)
Tablawi (al-muallim)
Ahmad Naina (murattal)
and Husari (al-Muallim)

If you show me the address where I can purchase audio CD albums of these I would not go in hassle of converting old LP into CD's, because they already have done so.

:jazak: for listening my grief.

Jazak Allah Khayr, I now seem to understand more where you're coming from. I would say this though, that were I to convert to digital, I would keep my personal archives at lossless perhaps, with that there is some reason and for personal storage/archive that is a good option. But as for online broadcast and distribution, I believe there to be no harm in using some half-decent compression for ease of access. Allahu A'lam. This is not to disparage you from the work you're already doing though.

I completely agree with the quality of the Mu'allim recitations of Husary available online, truely is dreadful. I believe that it'd be a great asset were fresh high quality versions made to be available on the internet, and since I can't find access to any of what you've listed (that's quite a mouth-watering list there), Insha'Allah we look forward to seeing them sometime in the future perhaps.

Anyways, may Allah Subhanahu Wa-Ta'ala place Barakah in your efforts and reward you, Ameen. (smile)

I'm very glad to see us muslims aren't staying behind in the technological aspect of these things : )

I'm very happy to see lossless audio for one of the best Qari's out there, perhaps it is an idea to use flac instead of apple losless next time : )

Also if you can make a torrent out of this we can all contribute to seeding and sharing this, this should take the hosting load off you as well cause 10gb per person is a lot!

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

I wish I had, but I don't. This is 1-to-1 CD copy into lossless audio format, that's why I didn't want to alter anything.

However, one can convert whole set into yet another lossless audio called .flac, then split each audio into surahs, then combine necessary segments to compile surah wise edition. That would be great work in itself. If someone does it, let me know then we can host another +10GB through our unlimited ftp.

The advantage of flac over m4a is that, there are many handy splitting/merging audio tools for flac rather than for m4a. But, ripping CD's with m4a is extremely fast compared to flac!

Please make dua that a librarian sends me 40-year-old al-muallim collection so that I can start a new project that's converting LP vinyls to audio CD's and then to lossless audio.

1. Al-Muallim (Hafs)

2. Murattal (Warsh)

3. Murattal (Hafs)

I made a request for al-Muallim set. Alhamdulillah it is on the way..

However, there is a general restriction for commercial use of these recordings. If anyone plans to produce these audio recitation in any different form and sell them, he needs to get a license from the inheritors of Mahmud Halil Husari.

As for public use, personal use and non-business, non-commercial use these recordings come without any copyrights.

I've never seen any place that would sell 7 different recitations by the same Qari and I doubt that there is any at all. However, Darul Ma'rifah has a very nice package that include 4 different Qiraat (Hafs, Warsh, Qaloun and Al-Douri) by the same reciter Shiekh Muhammed Aref Al Asali. It is a 6-CD set software that plays only on PC (maybe on Mac, too). There is an option to chose between different recitations on the go.

You can buy it here:

Sorry if I misunderstood you, but by "physical copies" do you mean printed books? If that's the case, you can buy one Mushaf that combines all 10 qiraat in margins again from Dar al-Marifah,

http://www.easyquran.com/store/product_details.php?category_id=1&item_id=118

or seperately,

1. Warsh reading (http://www.easyquran.com/store/product_details.php?category_id=1&item_id=31)

2. Qalun reading (http://www.easyquran.com/store/product_details.php?category_id=1&item_id=36)

4. Khalaf reading (http://www.easyquran.com/store/product_details.php?category_id=1&item_id=43)

as for the rest of different readings there are PDF files available online for free. Keep in mind that if anyone is not properly trained in science of Qiraat, he will not be able to read these Mushafs accordingly.

It is of much benefit to have this great collection in .flac audio format which is much more editable and accessible than .m4a. Only the title is incorrect, because this is not "al-Quran al-karim bi-tariqat al-ta'lim bi-riwayat Hafs 'an 'Asim" but, it is "Murattal al-Quran al-karim Murattal bi-riwayat Hafs 'an 'Asim ". Because "bi-tariqat al-ta'lim" version is not yet available in high quality format. Our strive and struggle is to bring this rare "bi-tariqat al-ta'lim" LP vinyl recordings into digital high quality audio format. For this we need your Dua.

as-Salamu Alaikum,

Alhamdulillah!

Couple of updates:
In the above lossless set, CD #23 was redundant and thus was missing (from the publisher). Missing CD was found and replaced from a different publisher.

Some tracks were not accurately ripped due to DVDRom reading errors; those are fixed.

No longer m4a are preferred, instead entire set is re-ripped in flac (free lossless audio codec) format due to versatility of this format.

Most tracks are combined and some are split to make it 114 according to the number of Suwar.

ID Tags are added.

Above links are removed and inshAllah I will provide new download links if you want.


Besides that, we found Audio CD version of al-Muallim recitation style by Mahmud Khalil al-Husary. To your info.

thanks for the thread, but I have a few questions

1. can the original links be re-upped? Or was there a technical reason to remove them (you said some tracks were not accurately ripped). Can the links be redone with accurate tracks?

2. The piratebay (flac) version does not have any seeders, can someone please seed? Perhaps put it on megaupload for permanence?

3. can this original set be purchased?

4. verdana, I think you were referring to two versions - will you put up the other version soon?

thanks again

:salam:

The reason I removed those links is for some tracks were innacurately ripped, and some chapters (entire album 23) were missing. So I had to find album 23 from a different company called Dar Makkah - UFI. Speaking about studio Murattal style recitation by Mahmud Khalil al-Husary, there are two publishers/distributors so far I've seen. One is SIDI and the other is Dar Makkah - UFI. The later one is widely available in US markets such as islamicbookstore (http://www.islamicbookstore.com/a3702.html) and halalco (http://halalco.com/quran_cd.html) for about 89$.

Forget about that torrent as it was a bare conversion of previous m4a set.

Now, we have flawless FLAC rip with all tracks re-named and tagged and uploaded to a fast server with http url. (I've asked the team if they allow sharing url's, if not I will upload to my server inshAllah).

If I understood you correctly you need uncombined track ripped version or is it fine to have 114 audio flac files for 114 chapters of Qur'an? Please let me know your exact need so that I can assist you further.

Two versions of studio Murattal style are almost the same, if not exact. My audio system can't tell the difference between SIDI's edition and Dar Makkah's. So, practically there is no need to upload them both.

As for al-Muallim style recitation, that's totally different story. Because although it is also recited by the same Qari Mahmud Khalil al-Husary, it is instructional/teaching style which is different than Murattal style. This is is also ripped and compiled to 114 flac audio files and will be published soon inshAllah.

Please let me know if you have any other questions and inquiries.

What I am wondering is why not make this into a torrent too. At least 10+ gig is best downloaded via torrent. My main source of internet connection is the office and it can get very slow, using torrents helps me up the ante a bit on my downloads.

Please forgive me if this question has already been asked or you already have it uploaded as a torrent file. The piratebay reply below has only 40 files out of the 114. Thanks a lot again and hoping for you reply asap. Masalaam

:ws:

Thank you for kind words. In light of what you are asking I would say:

Noble Sheikh Mahmud Khalil al-Husary has many recitations, out of them are:


Murattal (Hafs)
al-Muallim (Hafs)
Murattal (Warsh)
Mujawwad (Hafs)


If you are living somewhere in Africa, where Warsh qiraat is widespread, then you were probably rightly recommended to listen to Murattal Wash recitation.

However, if it is your first step studying only Hafs qiraat - the most popular one all over the world- then you should listen to Murattal Hafs or al-Muallim; both are great and extremely beneficial. The only problem is that we couldn't find high quality al-Muallim set, yet. We did buy al-Muallim CD set from a company that claimed that it is original, unfortunately it turned out otherwise. In any case, we have both al-Muallim and Murattal among many others. http://www.flawlessquran.com/

To sum up,
For learning, studying or just listening to Noble Qur'an Murattal recitation is highly recommended.
You can download one by one:
http://flawlessquran.com/flac/husari_murattal/

or entire set in a single link:
http://www.archive.org/download/husari3/husari.zip

to play these files you should install Foobar2000 player.
