In late Dec 2011, I was blessed with the chance to visit Shaykh Ismet Akcin at his masjid in Miami, Florida. For those who don’t know, Shaykh Ismet is a Turkish-born Qari who studied at the prestigious al-Azhar University in Cairo. Some of you may remember that he joined us for a webinar called ‘Tunes for the Soul’ back in Dec 2010. There’s much I can say about my visit and about Qari Ismet, but to keep it short, it would suffice to say that he is from the people of the Quran. Even though he is senior to me both in age and knowledge, through his humility and love I immediately felt when I met him as though I knew him forever … may Allah bless him and preserve him.

We recorded a series of videos where Qari Ismet demonstrated a few of the main maqamat (or tune patterns) for reciting the Quran beautifully … here they are … enjoy!
