Brother IF you want to recite Quran beautyfully you can learn it online from here. www.iqratadreesulquran.com. No problem for hadya just fill up the forum they will automatically start your classes. JazakAllah
I remind you and myself of Imam Shafi'is couplets:
Let not your tongue mention the shame of another
For you yourself are covered in shame and all men have tongues.
If your eye falls upon the sins of your brother
Shield them and say: "O my eye! All men have eyes!"
The Qaari (Rahimahullah) has passed away. He has benefitted more people through his recitation than you and I ever can. Pray to Allah that He accepts his efforts and overlooks any of his mistakes.
This is the manhaj of a muslim.
NB: Almost all the famous Egyptian Qurra (with the exception of Shaykh Khaleel Husary) did not have beards e.g. Shyakh Minshawi, Tablawi, Mustafa Ismail etc.
My favourite is Sheikh Mishary Rashed Alafasy.
Indeed we should ask them.
When I defend Allama Iqbal then I do so because he is no more and we do have words of remorse from him regarding not keeping a beard.
What pains this sinner is that some people do defend the same thing for those people who are around.
What is the level to which we have come?
Now let us read this informal quotation:
The Noble Qur'an was revealed in Arab, scribed in Iraq, recited in Egypt and understood in India.
A very obnoxious quotation in spite of the surface universality. A Shaikh says that we have at least six duties towards the Noble Qur'an.
(1) To learn it
(2) To learn it correctly
(3) To recite it
(4) To recite it correctly
(5) To act upon its injunctions
(6) To act upon its injunctions correctly.
Notice the even number of points. On the face of it these look redundant but there are people who sabotage the whole purpose.
Writing the Noble Qur'an can be reduced to mere art. (I saw a Class 6 theology book published by a non-Muslim publisher. Try to figure out the Reward aspect.)
Reciting the Noble Qur'an can be reduced to mere art form.
I hope understanding the Qur'an has not been reduced to mere academic exercise.
