What else did they do to prevent the message being spread? 3. The 3rd thing we’ll mention is that they attempted to ban the recitation of the Qur’an in public areas. When the Qur’an was recited, they would make an effort to drown it out using their voices or stop it from being recited.
Ibn Abbas mentioned whenever the prophet PBUH recited the Qur ‘an before the ka’ bah the Quraysh would start shouting and making noise, and they would curse the one who revealed it, and the one upon whom it was uncovered. Thus, if someone wished to pay attention to the Qur’an he would have to pretend he isn’t listening and listen to it on the noise.

Because of the shouting the prophet PBUH often tried to raise his own voice above theirs. But this is when Allah revealed “Do not say it loudly, nor in a whisper, but say it in a moderate voice”. As soon as the companions arrived together in the house of Al-Alkam, they said “no-one has recited the Qur’an in public areas, except the prophet PBUH, who is going to volunteer?”. Then Abdullah ibn Masud said, “I’ll take action”. But they said “we don’t want you because you don’t have family members to help and protect you. You do not have a tribe”. Ibn Masud was a Yemeni Indeed, he wasn’t a Qurayshi nor a good Meccan.
Recall in those times tribal lineage was everything – if you were aside of the tribe you were covered. But ibn Masud said, “I want to do it – I put my rely upon Allah”. This is ibn Masud who the prophet PBUH said “If you wish to recite the Qur’an properly, go to ibn Masud”.
He was the one who said “I have used more than 70 sprays directly from the prophet PBUH”. So ibn Masud said, “I wish to do that” and he went to the ka’bah the next morning when the people had gathered. Of course the ka’bah was the accepted host to socialization.
When the businesses of your day had been done, everyone would gather in the color of the gossip and ka’bah and relax. So when all gathered, ibn Masud stood at the madam of Ibrahim and started to recite in a loud and beautiful voices. Surah ar-Rehman. It had been so beautiful people gathered around him to pay attention.
One of these asked “what is this he is reciting?” Realize the whole research of tajweed is specific to Qur’an. The artwork and words of the Qur’an is on a different level and its own mesmerizing. So they all start talking and gossiping. Until one of them said “Oh this is what Muhammad claims is from Allah, this is exactly what he is reciting”.
