Beautifying one's voice when reciting the Qur'an

Q 3: All praise be to Allah, I am well versed in reciting the Qur'an in compliance with the rules of recitation of the Qur'an so much that people who hear my recitation may say that it is the first time they hear the Qur'an out of admiration of my recitation. Moreover, I am skilled at the different methods of Qur'an recitation. At times, I may recite the Qur'an in a way that is similar to Islamic songs, bearing in mind that the Qur'an has its specific way of recitation. Is it permissible for me to recite the Qur'an in this way taking into account that it does not sound like the forbidden songs at all?

A: It is permissible for a man to beautify his voice when reciting the Qur'an, and likewise a woman as long as she is not heard by Ajanib (men other than a husband or permanently unmarriageable male relatives). It is not permissible to recite the Qur'an the same way as Islamic songs, even if it does not sound like the forbidden songs.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
