This is by far one of the most emotional Qur'an recitations that I have ever found on the internet. The reciter is a 10 year old girl who has memorized the entire Qur'an, both her parents died, and not lately after that she also passed away due to cancer.

This recitation was recorded just before she went into a coma, reciting it in the hospital.

The Holy Qur'aan: Chapter 93, Surat Ad-Duhaa (The Morning Hours) - سورة الضحى

بسم الله الرحمن الرحي

In the name of God, the Most Kind, the Most Merciful. 

وَالضُّحَى

  • By the morning brightness (i.e. forenoon)

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا سَجَى

  • And [by] the night when it covers with darkness,

مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَى

  • Your Lord has not taken leave of you (forsaken you), [O Muhammad], nor has He detested [you].

وَلَلْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَّكَ مِنَ الْأُولَى

  • And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life].

وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَى

  • And your Lord is going to give you, and you will be satisfied.

أَلَمْ يَجِدْكَ يَتِيمًا فَآوَى

  • Did He not find you an orphan and give [you] refuge?

وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَى

  • And He found you lost and guided [you],

وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلًا فَأَغْنَى

  • And He found you poor and made [you] self-sufficient.

فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلَا تَقْهَرْ 

  • So as for the orphan, do not oppress [him].

وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلَا تَنْهَرْ

  • And as for the petitioner, do not repel [him].

وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ

  • But as for the favor of your Lord, report (i.e. proclaim!) [it].
Qur’an recitation/memorization tips

Reading Fluency

  • Practice every day. Keep a Quran beside your bed. 
  • Have a goal. If you wanna read more fluently set yourself a goal like 5 lines in less than 2 minutes. Time yourself. When you achieve your goal multiple times, try with 7 lines. And so on.
  • Dont have time? Yeah you do. Even if you put aside 15mins a day you will get so much accomplished. e.g. After fajr or isha
  • Consistency is key. Do it everyday. 
  • Don’t give up! Aim for a few months goal. Pray that Allah makes it easy for you. 

Memorization

  • Memorizing new surahs are cool because you get to read them in your prayers. Increases your focus in prayers.
  • Learn the meaning of your new surah. Helps with memorization and motivates you.
  • Listen to your surah. It helps you get the pronunciation right. Listen to it everywhere, bus/car/walk/shopping/etc
  • Read it before bed. If its the last thing you think about before sleep, your brain repeats it all night. 
  • Write it down multiple times if you can write in Arabic.
  • Dedicate a specific time of day for memorizing. 
  • Have a friend to memorize new surahs with you. Its so much help trust me.

Allah ta’ala says in the Qur'an (54:17):

ولقد يسرنا القران للذكر فهل من مدكر

And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?

سورة البلد, Surat 90: Al-Balad, (The City)

-

  • لَا أُقْسِمُ بِهَـٰذَا الْبَلَدِ

I swear by this city, Makkah -

  • وَأَنتَ حِلٌّ بِهَـٰذَا الْبَلَدِ 

And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city -

  •  وَوَالِدٍ وَمَا وَلَدَ

And [by] the father and that which was born [of him],

  • لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ فِي كَبَدٍ

We have certainly created man into hardship.

  • أَيَحْسَبُ أَن لَّن يَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ أَحَدٌ 

Does he think that never will anyone overcome him?

  •  يَقُولُ أَهْلَكْتُ مَالًا لُّبَدًا

He says, “I have spent wealth in abundance.”

  •  أَيَحْسَبُ أَن لَّمْ يَرَهُ أَحَدٌ 

Does he think that no one has seen him?

  •  أَلَمْ نَجْعَل لَّهُ عَيْنَيْنِ 

Have We not made for him two eyes?

  •  وَلِسَانًا وَشَفَتَيْنِ

And a tongue and two lips?

  • وَهَدَيْنَاهُ النَّجْدَيْنِ 

And have shown him the two ways?

  • فَلَا اقْتَحَمَ الْعَقَبَةَ

But he has not broken through the difficult pass.

  • وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الْعَقَبَةُ 

And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass?

  • فَكُّ رَقَبَةٍ

It is the freeing of a slave

  • أَوْ إِطْعَامٌ فِي يَوْمٍ ذِي مَسْغَبَةٍ

Or feeding on a day of severe hunger

  • يَتِيمًا ذَا مَقْرَبَةٍ

An orphan of near relationship

  • أَوْ مِسْكِينًا ذَا مَتْرَبَةٍ

Or a needy person in misery

  •  ثُمَّ كَانَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْمَرْحَمَةِ

And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion.

  • أُولَـٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ الْمَيْمَنَةِ

Those are the companions of the right.

  • وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بِآيَاتِنَا هُمْ أَصْحَابُ الْمَشْأَمَةِ

But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left.

  •  عَلَيْهِمْ نَارٌ مُّؤْصَدَةٌ

Over them will be fire closed in.

He who reads Surah al-Nahl every month, Allah [swt] will push away from him the problems [pain] of the Dunyah. As well as push away from him seventy different forms of afflictions, the worst of them being: craziness & leprosy, and he will be of the inhabitants of Paradise in `Adn.
—  Abu Ja`far al-Baqir [as], Tafsir al-`Ayaashi, V.2, Pg.275, H.1 - Translated from my copy of Tafsir (1991 Ed.)

Surat 86: Aţ-Ţāriq (The Night-Comer)-سورة الطارق

وَالسَّمَاءِ وَالطَّارِقِ

  • By the sky and the night comer -

وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الطَّارِقُ

  • And what can make you know what is the night comer?

النَّجْمُ الثَّاقِبُ

  • It is the piercing star -

إِنْ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ

  • There is no soul but that it has over it a protector.

فَلْيَنْظُرِ الْإِنْسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ

  • So let man observe from what he was created.

خُلِقَ مِنْ مَاءٍ دَافِقٍ

  • He was created from a fluid, ejected,

يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بَيْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ

  • Emerging from between the backbone and the ribs.

إِنَّهُ عَلَى رَجْعِهِ لَقَادِرٌ

  • Indeed, Allah , to return him [to life], is Able.

يَوْمَ تُبْلَى السَّرَائِرُ

  • The Day when secrets will be put on trial,

فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ وَلَا نَاصِرٍ

  • Then man will have no power or any helper.

وَالسَّمَاءِ ذَاتِ الرَّجْعِ

  • By the sky which returns [rain]

وَالْأَرْضِ ذَاتِ الصَّدْعِ

  • And [by] the earth which cracks open,

إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلٌ فَصْلٌ

  • Indeed, the Qur'an is a decisive statement,

وَمَا هُوَ بِالْهَزْلِ

  • And it is not amusement.

إِنَّهُمْ يَكِيدُونَ كَيْدًا

  • Indeed, they are planning a plan,

وَأَكِيدُ كَيْدًا

  • But I am planning a plan.

فَمَهِّلِ الْكَافِرِينَ أَمْهِلْهُمْ رُوَيْدًا

  • So allow time for the disbelievers. Leave them awhile.
