Br. Ahmed Abu Ali


Every so often, I reintroduce myself to this moving recitation of Surah Furqan by Br. Ahmed Abu Ali. The eyes naturally swell with tears.

May Allah release him soon. Just the other day, I passed by the exact place at the masjid where he once recited these ayaat .. how times change ..

Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon. (61)
And it is He who has made the night and the day in succession for whoever desires to remember or desires gratitude. (62)
And the slaves of the Most Beneficent (Allah) are those who walk on the earth in humility and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild words of gentleness. (63)
And those who spend [part of] the night to their Lord prostrating and standing [in prayer] (64)
And those who say, “Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Hell. Indeed, its punishment is ever adhering; (65)
Indeed, it is evil as a settlement and residence.” (66)
And [they are] those who, when they spend, do so not excessively or sparingly but are ever, between that, [justly] moderate (67)
And those who do not invoke with Allah another deity or kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed], except by right, and do not commit unlawful sexual intercourse. And whoever should do that will meet a penalty. (68)
Multiplied for him is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein humiliated – (69)
Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. (70)
And he who repents and does righteousness does indeed turn to Allah with [accepted] repentance. (71)
And [they are] those who do not testify to falsehood, and when they pass near ill speech, they pass by with dignity. (72)
And those who, when reminded of the verses of their Lord, do not fall upon them deaf and blind. (73)
And those who say, “Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.” (74)
Those will be rewarded with the highest place (in Paradise) because of their patience. Therein they shall be met with greetings and the word of peace and respect. (75)
Abiding therein; excellent it is as an abode, and as a place to dwell. (76)
Say, “What would my Lord care for you if not for your supplication?” For you [disbelievers] have denied, so your denial is going to be adherent. (77)
