Download The Holy Qur'an - Recital and Rehearsal MP3 and M3U files
Arabic Recitation with synchronised practise intervals after each verse
Each Ayat of every Surah of the Holy Quran has been individually saved as an MP3 file (Audio) and paired with a silent mp3 file of the same duration. This enables listeners to rehearse reading the arabic text of the aayah or its recitation from memory; digital support for practising Naazirah or Hifz. You can identify any Ayat, Ruku, Quarter, Surah or Juz simply by its filename (see release note below). All mp3 files are saved in a surah folder however since some mp3 players can only recognise a maximum of 99 folders Surahs 98-114 (last quarter of Juz 30) have been collated together.
Release Note: R1.0
updated with link to free download of GSPlayer (supports m3u playlists on mobile devices)
- Some mp3 players have import functions to convert mp3 and m3u files (playlist) to their bespoke format. For example some Mp3 players on mobile phones create m3u files created from all mp3 files found on a data card. They cannot read m3u files created externally.
- Some mp3 players do not recognise mp3 playlists (m3u) or cannot read playlists with more than 99 entries; selecting a Surah folder however will still allow playback of the whole surah in the correct order.
- An mp3 CD is a data cd consisting of mp3 files and/or m3u files.
- We have created a playlist (m3u) for each Surah and each Ruku both within the Surah folders and in separate playlist folders, for example:
- Surah095\EchoS095.m3u (A playlist within the Surah095 folder that plays the whole of Surah 95)
- Surah079\ES079R02.m3u (A playlist within the Surah079 folder that plays just Ruku 2 of Surah 97)
- PlayJuz\Juz03.m3u (A playlist within the separate PlayJuz folder that plays the whole of Juz 3)
- PlayJuzQ\Juz02Q3.m3u (A playlist within the separate PlayJuzQ folder that plays just the 3rd quarter of Juz 3)
- PlayRuku\S002R05.m3u (A playlist within the separate PlayRuku folder that plays just Ruku 5 of Surah 2)
- PlaySurah\Surah014.m3u (A playlist within the separate PlaySurah folder folder that plays the whole of Surah 14)
- Other than the downloadable MP3 files below you can also play the Recital and Rehearsal Audio files on-line in RealAudio format.
- Ensure crossfade/fade/supress zero or any silence removal options are not selected where those options exists in the mp3/m3u player otherwise playback will be truncated and intervals deleted. The mp3/m3u player called GSPlayer is free to download and by default has all the right options selected for mobile devices.
- Each Aayat is named using the notation:
<Para Number><Para Quarter Number><Surah Number><Ruku Number in Surah><Ayat Number in Surah>_<Recitation(C) or Without volume(W)>
P01Q2S002R06A054_C.mp3 is the recitation of an Aayah which happens to be in the 2nd Quarter of the 1st Juz/Para; is 54th Aayat of the Second Surah and which happens to be in the 6th Ruku of that Surah. P01Q2S002R06A054_W.mp3 would be it's matching silent interval of the same duration.
System Requirements: You will need 495MB of free space and a suitable mp3 player (for mobile devices GSPlayer is free to download and by default has all the right options selected).You will not need an Internet connection once installed.
