باب استحباب تحسين الصَّوت بالقرآن
وطلب القراءة من حَسَن الصوت والاستماع لها
عَنْ أبي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قال: سمِعتُ رسولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم يقول : « مَا أَذِنَ اللهُ لِشَيْءٍ مَا أَذِنَ لِنَبِيٍّ حَسَنِ الصَّوْتِ يَتَغَنَّى بِالْقُرْآنِ يَجْهَرُ بِهِ » متفقٌ عليه .معنى « أَذِنَ اللهُ »: أي اسْتَمَعَ ، وَهُوَ إشَارَةٌ إلى الرِّضَى وَالقُبُولِ .

The Merit of Recitation of the Noble Qur'an in a Pleasant Voice
AbU Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of AllAh (PBUH) saying, "Allah does not listen so attentively to anything as He listens to the recitation of the Quran by a Prophet who recites well with a melodious and audible voice."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary:
"Allah does not listen so attentively" has two- fold meanings. First, Allah's acceptance and pleasure. Second, His attribute of Hearing. One must have to believe in it although we can neither describe it nor compare it with anything else.
The word "Ghina" is ordinarily used for singing but here it means the recitation which is done in accordance with the principles of Tajwid and in a beautiful voice.
Thus, this Hadith induces us to recite the Qur'an properly with nice feeling and voice.
