QUR'AN RECITAL BEFORE THE SUBUH PRAYER AT THE BLUE MOSQUE

While waiting for people to come to the mosque to perform the "Subuh" (early morning) prayer, the imam (the person who leads the prayer) first read a few verses from from the Holy Qur'an and I think he must be an ALHAFIZ - someone who could memorize the Qur'an. 

Everything was just peaceful. The morning was cold, the mosque beautiful and the voice reciting the holy verses was soothing - it would heal any soul listening to it. I just wish I could lie down, close my eyes and listen and I wonder if I die there, would I wake up in heaven.
