The Women Quran Reciters App

“Qariah” translates to a woman Quran reciter. While there are many public Qariahs around the globe in countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Morocco, Algeria, Nigeria and Yemen, it is not a well known term in many Muslim communities in the west. Thus, the Qariah app aims to mainstream the term Qariah for women and ease accessing recitations of Qariahs…so that when little girls ask their mothers or aunts or sisters or homegirls, “Why are there no women Quran reciters?” The answer will be a resounding, “There are an uncountable number of them- and God willing, you and I can be them too!”

We feature over 60 women representing cultures all around the world: from Tanzania to Indonesia, Australia to Spain, Morocco to Somalia, Canada to Pakistan, Algeria to Guinea, the Philippines to The Gambia, Singapore to Palestine, Nigeria to Malaysia, the United States to Egypt, Yemen to Mauritania and more.

Each Qariah has memorized the Quran or holds an ijaza (license to teach), or is a national or international Quran competition winner or a qualified Quran teacher. The app showcases women’s scholarship with Quran and aims to inspire women across the globe to pursue Quranic understanding, memorization, and contemplative recitation.

Listen to the Quran in multiple qira’aat (methods of recitation) including Hafs ‘an ‘Asim, Shu'bah 'an 'Aasim, Warsh ‘an Nafi, Al-Doori 'an Abi 'Amr, Khalaf 'an Hamza, Qaloon ‘an Nafi, and Qaloon Biqasr Almunfasil wa Iskaan Meem AlJam.

Mashallah I am so impressed!

I have been waiting for the app to launch and I finally opened it today, like another reviewer…tears came pouring. I’ve never seen Qariahs and therefore myself as a woman fully represented in my religion the way men get to (I didn’t even know Qariahs existed!). To be 35 yrs. old and for the first time seeing and hearing women Qariahs thanks to this app is powerfully healing, but sad to think it’s been hidden from me my whole life bc of the patriarchy. I hope this will allow my 4yr. old niece be able to have a closer relationship to Allah while growing up because of powerfully visible, audible female representation thanks to this app existing. Thank you to the app creators! I am so moved and inspired by your devotion to Allah and desire to uplift women and girls.

Constructive criticism

It’s a great idea and I hope Allah rewards you all for the hard effort and dedication. I don’t think I’ve ever written a review, but I felt this was something that touched me deeply and I really hope to see it flourish in the best way possible.
I admire the diversity and encouragement. I would however like to mention that the Quran should be read in a certain way with very accurate pronunciation and I believe posting certain readers for the sake of diversity although very noble and probably done with pure intentions, does not present the Quran in the way it should be presented. Also I admire the idea of having recordings from old women who have passed away. The quality of these recordings however are very poor and may better serve in a tribute section created for that specific purpose. I am sure there are many talented Female Egyptian readers out there that you can reach out to who would be thrilled to join this project. Last but not least I am not a fan of the recordings for just certain aya’s. I would very much enjoy being able to listen to the whole surah and hopefully one day the whole Quran by a single reader that I connect with if possible.
Again this is meant as constructive criticism and by no means meant to belittle your effort on this very much needed project.

Subhan Allah

Listening to and reciting Quran has been a source of anxiety for me after years of spiritual trauma. Upon opening this app and seeing this seemingly endless list of Qariahs from around the world, I began to cry tears of joy. From the first recitation I heard of Surah Fatiha, I knew that this was the beginning of my journey to healing. Each of the reciters have such beautiful voices Masha Allah. May Allah grant everyone involved in the making of this app happiness and comfort in this life, and the highest level of Jannah, and keep us all on the straight path. ❤️❤️❤️
