TEHRAN (IQNA) – On the occasion of the Holy Prophet’s (PBUH) birthday and the Islamic Unity Week, the International Quran News Agency held an initiative in which qaris send recordings of their recitation of verses from the Quran about the Prophet (PBUH).
IQNA has launched a program named “Badr al-Doja” [meaning full moon which is one of the descriptions used in Arab world for Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)], inviting international qaris to recite verses about the Holy Prophet (PBUH) or the unity of the Islamic Ummah.
One of the qaris taking part in the plan is Zakariya Attieh, a visually-impaired qari and memorizer from Algeria.
He sent IQNA a recording containing his recitation of verses 39-48 of Surah Al-Ahzab:
Those who preach the message of God and are humble before Him should not be afraid of anyone besides God. God is Sufficient in keeping the account. (39)
Muhammad is not the father of any of your males. He is the Messenger of God and the last Prophet. God has the knowledge of all things. (40)
Believers, remember God very often (41)
and glorify Him both in the mornings and in the evenings. (42)
It is He who forgives you and His angels pray for you so that He will take you out of darkness into light. God is All-merciful to the believers. (43)
On the day when they will be brought into the presence of their Lord, their greeting to each other will be, “Peace be with you.” God has prepared an honorable reward for them. (44)
Prophet, We have sent you as a witness, a bearer of glad news, a warner, (45)
a preacher for God by His permission and as a shining torch. (46)
Give glad news to the believers of their receiving great favor from God. (47)
Do not yield to the disbelievers or the hypocrites. Ignore their annoying you. Trust in God. God is your all Sufficient Protector. (48)
