Qur’an Mondays: Surah Hajj by Muhammad al-Kurdi

I came across this particular recitation when Youtube recommended it on the side bar, since then I have been hooked on his beautiful voice. I especially like this recitation of Surah Hajj from 6.00.

I couldn’t quite place Surah he is recitation (due to lack of being a Hafiz), and a friend told me about this amazing website, where you search for Qur’anic words phonetically, the link is here.


There are 78 ayaat in this Surah and it was revealed in Makkah. The Holy Prophet (S) has said that reciting this Surah carries the reward equal to the number of pilgrims who have been for Hajj and those who will go for Hajj in the future.

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq has said that whoever recites this Surah once in every three days will get the opportunity of going for Hajj in the same year, and if he dies on the way, he will be granted Jannah. Someone asked what would happen if the person performing the Hajj was a sinner, so the Imam (a.s.) replied that his punishment would be reduced.
