Smooth Translation

Reading the Quran can be tedious. Given that, listening to the narration in this podcast is quite the opposite. The verses chosen are quite meaningful and are delivered in a way that facilitates absorption. It is also pleasant to listen to. Finally a relaxing way to increase our knowledge of the Quran.

Exactly what I need!

Perfect for the busy, working, English-speaking Muslim (and non-Muslim). Only 4-5 minutes a day and I can have the entire Qu'ran finished in a year plus actually understand it. Always seemed daunting before but now it's actually attainable!
