The Qur’an is indeed a beautiful thing to listen to. There are several Qur’an reciters around the globe. Each of whom has their own style of reciting the beautiful Qur’an. Is there a line we draw when making the recitation of Qu’ran melodious? Is actually singing the Qur’an permissible?

Can I sing the Quran?
Peace be upon you a lot of people wonder. So what is it that you do so in front of a group of people who haven't heard recited recitation or maybe not Muslim? They'll say, what's that song that you sing? So the plan is not meant to be sung. Because singing follows its own set of rules. The Quran is meant as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam peace be upon him was instructed in the second revelation ozy de la hora de Lille or Anna, dada or D de la, slow calculated rhythm. So no, we don't sing the Quran, we recite it, as opposed to following notes that go da da da da da da da da da. We recite the Quran based on the points of articulation, and based on the rules that are built into the
recitation, not a song but definitely a melodious recitation.
