Hawzah News Agency (Mashhad, Iran) - Mohsen Taha Al Ramahi noted that has started reciting the Qur'an from childhood, adding, "I have been engaged in reciting the Holy Qura'n for more than 27 years."
Pointing to difficulties of learning the Holy Qur'an he added, "Unfortunately, during the reign of Saddam in Iraq we did not have much access to the Qur'anic professors and elders so I had to get the information personally from various Qur'anic sessions."
"I love the recitation style of master Abdul Baset and I usually try to imitate this master's style", he added.
Noting that it is the second time he along with other leading reciters has attended the Razavi Holy Shrine, he continued, "I am glad that the success of pilgrimage and recitation of the Qur'an has been granted to me in the Razavi Holy Shrine".
"The Islamic Iran, especially Mashhad, has many Qariars including Hamid Shakrinejad. Mr. Shakrinejad is very popular among Iraqi Qaries and many Iraqi teenage Qaries imitate the style of this great and competent reciter", Iraqi Qari said.
It is notable that a group of 185 leading Qaries of Iraq visited the holy shrine of Ali ibn Musa al-Reza (as) and participated in the program of reciting the Qur'anic verses at Ghadir portico. This group of pilgrims were received in the guest house of Imam Reza (as).
