Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,
I came across this recitation and i've been listening to this over and over again.
MashaÁllah he is beautifully talented and gifted from Allah. A beautiful qiraat is not easy to come by, it requires time and effor, sometimes years for a person to perfect. And some people are just blessed by Allah with beautiful voices when it comes to reciting the Qurán.
Qari Ziyad Patel is from South Africa and has one of the most sweetest voices which does not fail to move the heart.
Here he recites some of my favourite verses from Surat An-Nur [The Ayah of Nur]:
Recitation of the Qurán in a beautiful manner while fulfilling its rights of pronounciation is a comman from Allah both in the Qurán and Sunnah.
In Surah Al Muzammil it says:
..and recite the Quran in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style - [Surah Muzzamil, verse 4:]
