Beautify your voice when reciting the Quran


Can you cite authentic narrations which, encourage us to sweeten our voice when reciting the Quran?



Sayyiduna Bara ibn ‘Azib (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Beautify the Quran [recital] with your voices.’

(Sunan Nasai, Hadith: 1015, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1463,  Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 8829 and many others. Imam Bukhari has referred to it in passing – ta’liqan. Also see Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 3726 & 4576-4577)


Declared authentic (sahih) by Imams: Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah)

(Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 1551, Sahih Ibn Hibban, Hadith: 749)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
