In the paraphrased words of Qari Saleem Gaibie, anyone who wants to succeed in a field of expertise should study the lives of those who excelled in it. Therefore, those who intend to read the Seven and Ten Qirā-āt should learn about our illustrious scholars of exemplary character, dedication and piety. 

In fact, any and every student of Qur’an should read this book to get a glimpse into the lives of these luminaries. As it’s a short read of only 67 pages, there is no excuse. 

This book includes a brief history of qirā-āt and explains the terms “The Readers (Qurrā’)”, “The Transmitters (Ruwāt)” and “The Ways/Paths (Turuq)”. It also provides diagrams of the scholarly links to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). 

Through reading this book, I was inspired, moved to tears and yearning to meet them. May Allah SWT have mercy on them and grant them Al-Firdous. Āmīn. 

May Allah (SWT) accept the latest book of Qari Saleem Gaibie and all of his works, constantly increase him and reward him well in this world and the next. Āmīn.
