The Prophet (صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎) said, “The best among you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it.”

Etiquette of Reciting Qur’an

Some of the etiquettes mention by Ibn Katheer:

  • One should neither recite nor touch the Qur’an except in a state of purification.
  • One should pause his recitation when yawning.
  • One should not interrupt his recitation and speak, except if necessary.
  • One should be attentive to what he is reciting.
  • One should pause at a verse mentioning reward and ask Allah for that reward.
  • One should pause at a verse mentioning punishment and seek refuge in Allah from that punishment.
  • One should not raise his voice when reciting to the extent that he confuses other adjacent reciters.
