Late Iranian Quran Master to Be Commemorated

The renowned Quran reciter and instructor died on March 8, 2006, after a long illness.

He had traveled to Egypt and received recitation permissions from such great masters as Mostafa Ismail and Minshawi.

Born in 1939 in Tehran, Arbabi began learning the Quran at the age of ten.

He learned the nuances and skills of Quran recitation with masters like Khalil Rahman and Ebrahim Pourfarzib, known as Molayi.
