As-Salaam alaikum,
Tawus related that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was asked : "Who has the best voice and best recitation of the Qur'an?" He replied : "The person whose recitation makes you feel he fears Allah." Tawus said : "Talq, may Allah be pleased with him, was a person who recited in this way." (Darimi:3489).
Since humility is not experienced without imagining that one is presenting oneself before Allah Ta'ala, this hadith makes reference to the fact that when one is reciting the Qur'an, one should imagine that one is sitting before Him... reciting to Him, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala and that Allah is listening. This is a very good way of reciting the Qur'an and is recommended by Spiritual Masters.
