Ramadan Videos - Sh. Mohmd Jibreel 2007

Salam Alaikum Everyone. I hope all of you are in the best of health and blessings during this amazing month.

Here are some videos that you may not get living in the US but reflect some of the programs muslims are watching in other countries. This may help you get more in the mood of this month and also view some beautiful recitation and supplication.

For those of you that may not know who Mohmd Jibreel, he is the oficially appointed reciter of Amr Ibn al-Aas mosque in Cairo Egypt. He travels extensively worldwide in particular during Ramadan but the rest of the year he is mostly in Egypt. He lives in Muhendiseen and I have had the pleasure of sitting with him at home and learning from him about maqamat and other aspects of recitation.

His website is :

Below are videos of Mohmd Jibreel before coming to the US this month. He is reciting the Qur'an on the "Cairo Today" television program.

Mohmd Jibreel is in my opinion one of the best Murattel reciters living today.
One of the reasons why he is so unique in his recitation is in that he changes his tone and mode with meaning. This does require him to sometimes recite slower than typical Murattel reciters but it creates a much more engaging recitation.

Observe for yourself. Here from Surat Shura:

Here is reciting from Surat Qaf:

Short Dua (supplication):

And here he is again with a very nice dua (supplication)in this blessed month.

I hope you enjoy.

Surat al Kahf with Sumaya

Here is a video of Surat al Kahf recited by 5 young girls on Friday. It also contains many hadith and details that explain the Surah. The video is in Arabic but is enjoyable for even a non Arabic speaker.

This is an excellent video for :

1. Reciting every Friday as there is great reward in it.
2. Using for memorizing the Surah.
3. As motivation for young girls who will be good reciters one day.

This video was given to me by Sumaya's family when I was visiting them recently, May Allah reward her and them greatly.
