Recitation Menu

You can listen to beautiful recitation of various famous reciters from the Recitation menu on the left of the page. Recitations are synchronized with the Quran text: whenever the reciter moves to the next aya, the new aya is highlighted in the Quran page, and the translation of the new aya is displayed in the translation box (if it is activated). The page is also automatically scrolled, if needed, to make sure that the recited aya is properly viewed in the browser's window.

Note that some browsers need flash player for playing recitations. So, if you do not see the player in the recitation menu, try installing Flash Player on your browser first.

Several options are provided in the Recitation menu:

  • Repeat Times: You can specify how many times each aya should be repeated by clicking on the number right after the reciter name.
  • Play Scope: You can select whether recitations go continuously, or stop at the end of each aya, sura, page, or juz.
  • Delay Time: You can specify the delay between each two consecutive ayas.
  • Add Reciter: You can select two or more recitations to be played alternately. This is in particular useful if you want to hear "translation audio" after the recitation of each aya.
