Shaykh Abdul Rashid Ali Sufi Reciting in Khalaf Reading Style – Complete Qur’an
The Reciter is Shaykh Abdur Rashid Ali Sufi who is reciting in Qirā’atu Khalaf (the reading method) of Khalaf. A Qirā’at is a method of pronunciation used in the recitations of the Qur’an. There ten Qirā’āt methods. Seven qirā’āt (methods of recitations) out of the ten qirā’āt have authentic chains of transmission as outlined by Imam Ash-Shaatibiyy. Each of the seven qirā’āt has two separate modes of reading that were made famous by each of the two main students of the original teachers (imams) of the recitation. The remaining three qirā’āt that have been mentioned by Imam ibn Al-Jazari are also named after the students of the scholars who were the original reciters.
Each qirā’āt has two narrators of the recitation of the first scholar, sometimes the two different narrations they learned from the first scholar are almost identical, other times, there is quite a difference between them. Each qirā’āt (methods of recitations) was either transmitted directly from the Imam himself or transmitted with a shaykh or two in between the student and the main teacher.
What’s really interesting is that each qirā’āt has received its name from the main student who mastered and popularized the reading rather than the master teacher who taught it. Another interesting point is that even though two modes of reading may have been transmitted from the same teacher, they may have very different rules, as each has its own chain of transmission and each has its own identity. The main point is that these are all authentic ways of recitation passed down in chains of transmission from the Messenger of Allah, (S.A.W), person by person until the recitation has reached us today.
In respect to the Khalaf reading method, you’ll notice the high ended pronunciation placed on the Alif Maqsuurah. For example in Surah (93) Suratu-ḍ-Ḍuḥaa the Shaykh reads the verse , wa-ḍ-ḍuḥay, as opposed to wa-ḍ-ḍuḥaa and wa maa qalay as opposed to wa maa qalaa as found in the other readings styles.
Those who are hearing this for the first time; keep an opened mind. Don’t assume the reciter is making mistakes. He’s not.
Another example of the uniqueness of this reading style is found in Suratu-l-Faatiḥah wherein the Shaykh reads verses 6 and 7: ihdina-z-ziraṭa-l-mustaqiima ziraṭa-l-ladhiina an ʿamta ʿalayhum ghayru-l-maghḍuubi ʿalayhum wala-d-daaaaaa liiiiiin,
as opposed to ihdina-ṣ-ṣiraṭa-l-mustaqiima ṣiraṭa-l-ladhiina an ʿamta ʿalayhim ghayru-l-maghḍuubi ʿalayhim wala-d-daaaaaa liiiiiim, as found in the other readings styles.
