Answered by Ustadha Zaynab Ansari, SunniPath Academy Teacher
In the Name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
I pray this message finds you in good health and ever-increasing iman.
Shaykh Abd al-Basit Abd al-Samad is one of the most famous Qur'an reciters of our time. The recognized qurra', like Shaykh Abd al-Basit, stay within the rules of tajwid. If you have any doubts about a particular reciter, I suggest you refer your questions to a scholar of tajwid. I am only a student; however, I can tell you that all of my tajwid teachers in Syria had nothing but praise for the recitation of Qari Abd al-Basit. Keep in mind, however, that the style of Egyptian reciters varies from that of Syrian reciters, or those in Pakistan, or Indonesia, for example. However, these variations are generally permitted as long as the reciter adheres to the basic guidelines of tajwid.
And Allah knows best.

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, "Knowledge is only through study." While some knowledge can be gained from reading or casually listening to lectures, the best means to gain knowledge is through finding a qualified teacher and then setting up a systematic program of learning. Picking up a book or reading an article and trying to figure things out on our own is no substitute for learning from someone who has a direct link to our living tradition.
