In order to help you learn maqam saba, I’ve posted here a few short examples of Quran recitations in maqam saba. In addition, there are a few more examples in this previous post, so you can listen to those as well. Like before, I’ve tried to pick out clips where the pattern is simple and easy to identify.

I won’t pretend that just listening to these clips will automatically give you the ability to recite in maqam saba. However, by actively listening to the clips and actively trying to identify and pick out the tune/maqam pattern that is common to all these clips, you will develop a greater sense and feel for the maqam.

So here goes:

Shaykh Muhammad Ayyoob, Surah al-Fatihah & al-Hashr

Shaykh Mishary Rashid al-Afasy, Surah al-Mu’minoon

Shaykh Omar al-Qazabri, Surah al-Fatihah & al-An’aam

Shaykh Muhammad Siddiq al-Minshawi, Surah al-Hashr

Shaykh Khalid al-Qahtani, Surah ar-Rahman

Enjoy! and hope that helps you in learning to identify the pattern of maqam saba. For those who love the mujawwad style, you’ll notice I didn’t post too many mujawwad clips for now, because in the mujawwad recitations the patterns are sometimes harder to hear, especially for those new to the study of maqamat. I have a few mujawwad clips though and perhaps we’ll share them in the future, inshaAllah.
