Radio Egypt version. Tartil Al Quranul Kareem by Sheikh Mahmud Khalil Al Hussary
[الشيخ محمود خليل الحصري‎]

As a child way back then, I can still remember now the mesmerising strains of Quran emitting softly from the old radio we use to have at home. It was way back in the seventies. Mostly at the break of dawn before the Subuh prayers, the local radio station of RTM would most often than not run the recital by Sheikh Mahmud Khalil Al Hussary. It was exactly this Radio Egypt version playing that eventually found its abode in my mind and in my heart throughout my entire life.
We didn't have fancy digital outputs in those days. There were no audio CDs , no internet and not especially Youtubes.. Every now and then Sheikh Mahmud Khalil Al Hussary's recital would appear in my life out of that almost broken down radio of "home" most of the time. Everything was so difficult to get or come by back then. I made my way to the US for my studies. in the early 80s. It was in the USA that I finally lay my hands on the Sheikh's elusive full collection set of Quranic recital audio tapes otherwise known most commonly as CASSETTE tapes... The Islamic movements were on the rise back then and on the shores of the USA, I would run the tapes over and over again. These particular verses were among those closest to my heart in the days where I first found some light to make sense of this world we live in and the life I had. To this day these heart rending passage recited by the Sheikh makes me look so much deeper into myself in retrospect.

These were the men of God whose voice, recitation, intonations and depth of emotions when reading the verses of the Al Quran were so profound that even in our darkness of zhulumat, we could sometimes vividly imagine the Quranic events that unfolded before the eyes of the Sohabah radhiallahu anhum ajmain in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

Their voices reverberated with conviction to every letter and phrase of the Quran that you could almost imagine and understand how much love the Sohabah must have had for the Prophet and God. Nothing in this world for them was too difficult or unattainable for the love of Allah and RasulluLlaah sallallaahu alaihi wa salam.

Herein lies the fault of the Ummat for either as an individual or group, we have somehow lost that love. The day we find it back in our hearts will be that dawn of a united Muslims in the tradition of the great Sohabah.
