Sudan’s Quran Reciter Shaykh Nurayn Muhammad Siddique Dies In Car Accident

Shaykh Nurayn Muhammad Siddique passed away in a car accident in the Omdurman area of his native Sudan. Omdurman is the most populated city in Sudan and Khartoum State, lying on the western banks of the River Nile, opposite the capital, Khartoum.  Shaykh Nurayn is one of the most accomplished reciters of Quran.  He is very popular for his distinctive way of reciting in the Al Duri qira’at. He has a worldwide following whom he inspired. Shaykh Nurayn and his three hafiz companions met with a tragic fatal accident on their way back from a missionary trip in the city of Halfa, Northern Sudan. The funeral prayers of Shaykh Nurayn were offered on November 7, 2020, in Khartoum, Sudan.

Abu ‘Amr Hafs Ibn ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz al-Baghdadi, better known as Al-Duri (150-246AH), was a significant figure in the transmission of the Qira’at, or methods of reciting the Qur’an. Of the seven canonical reciters, al-Duri was a transmitter for two entirely separate methods: that of Abu ‘Amr ibn al-‘Ala’ and that of Al-Kisa’i.
