A qāriʾ (Arabic: قَارِئ‎, plural قُرَّاء qurrāʾ; English: "reader") is a person who recites the Quran with the proper rules of recitation (tajwid).[1]

Although it is encouraged, a qāriʾ does not necessarily have to memorise the Qur'an, just to recite it according to the rules of tajwid with melodious sound.
