Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Truly, the person having the best voice with the Qur’an is the one whom, when you hear him recite, you think that he fears Allah.”


Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1339)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
