Qari Nomani Kalyanvi is from the progeny of Imam Abu Hanifah, one of the prestigious Imams of Muslims’ and is the 26th in the generation. Abu Hanifah R.A.’s real name was Noman (Numan or Nauman); hence the surname of Nomani / Numani.

Just to inform people about the significance of these programs, majority of people are well aware that Qirat is the correct and beautiful manner of reciting Quran; and someone, who is truly a specialist in Qirat is called “Qari (plural is Qaris or Qurra)”. It is further known that Qirat programs are something very special in the Muslims’ traditions and culture; and people always gather in large numbers, to enthusiastically listen to beautiful Qirat.

Such events are part of healthy community activity, where idea is not merely entertainment, but according to our guest Qari Muhammad Saad Nomani Kalyanvi, there is emphasis on Muslims to beautifully read and attentively listen to Quran in the best of manners and styles.

This is where one of the significances of this program; that is Qari Nomani can make presentation of Qirat in 85 Qaris styles and tones, making his programs blessed manifolds.

To see some glimpses of his performances, one can go to Youtube – Especially see this one: In Youtube search, write this: Amazing – Must See As if I was In Mecca from Canada.

This will be Qari Nomani’s first ever tour of USA, making his visit quite historic. Then Qari Nomani’s visit is on the eve of the Blessed Month of Ramadan, which is called the Month of Fasting & Quran; making his visit even more significance, as Muslims have been encouraged to begin preparing for Ramadan ahead of the month.

Since his performance is linked with Quran, which is an unifying book and attentively listening to Qirat itself has many blessings and rewards; as such diverse communities of all nationalities and backgrounds will be in attendance, like African Americans, Caucasian Americans, Malaysians-Indonesians, Pakistanis-Indians-Bangladeshis, Turkish, and Middle Eastern.

Qari Nomani’s program By the Grace of God will inspire Youth among Muslim community to work hard on the art of Qirat, bringing out world renowned Qurra from USA and just like Qari Nomani has become a scholar; our youth will also strive to go beyond just Qirat to become credible scholars of Islam.
