Wudu is the cure for the heat of anger, feeling down about yourself, and that funky foot odor from old sandals.

also that it needs much more cream and skin care

Mohammed (pbuh) had 12 wives, including a Christian woman. His first wife was intelligent, educated and owned her own business. His youngest was literate, while he was not.

Can you elaborate on what you mean to say by this?

I mean I have downloaded several versions of Quran recitation.  My Imam Arafi (Surah Yusuf) is peaceful and relaxing.  However, I cannot remember the reciters name, but his voice was irritating and I was unable to enjoy his recitation because of this.

Reciters are people.  Some have good voices, some have bad.  Just like secular singers.  Sometimes, people just sound more like they are strangling a cat than singing.

Its nothing against Quran recitation itself, just the performers.

Yap you right. What other people say good sometimes its bad to me until I tried everyone of them myself by spending of time in it.

The 2nd link used to work in everyone of them but now few of them don't work, it need patience in clicking. The first one work ok but not that many, enjoy.

So you should not call those reciters of the Qur'an who have bad voices as dying cats. The recitation of the Qur'an is so meritorious. The Qur'an is the word of Allah. It does not matter wether one has a good voice or a bad voice. But it is the recitation of the Qur'an which is more important. Be careful of your comments in future.

Muhammed or should I say Salman,

Loosen up.  I said its not the Quranic recitation, its the voice.  And if they sound like a dying cat, it detracts from the beauty of the Quranic verses they are reciting...if you are going to make a CD for people to buy, you should make sure you can do the subject matter justice and all that it deserves.

Who is this Salman? Why am I being called as Salman in this forum? I have seen another member call me by that name. And I warn you all not to do so in future.

Yes, even I am talking about the voice. If you are listening to a song, and if the voice is not good, then if you wish you can say that it sounds like a dying cat. But when you are listening to the recitation of the Holy Qur'an and if some people have bad voices while reciting it, then you should not call it as the voice of dying cat because they are reciting the word of Allah.
