The singer, who converted to Islam in 2013, is married to a Moroccan man.
Grout recited the verse of Al Kursi, known as the Throne verse in English. The verse is the 255th verse of the second surah of the Quran, Al-Baqarah.
In the footage, Jennifer Grout shows passion as she recites the verse. The video has already gone viral on social media.
The singer’s followers interacted with her post positively, generating hundreds of Facebook reactions.
Some of her fans advised her to wear Hijab while she is reciting Quranic verses. Jennifer Grout has responded to commentators, saying: “So I know my last post sparked some discussion about the #hijab, as I knew it would.”
She added that she decided to post her first recitation “without it for a few reasons… firstly, I don’t want to mislead people about myself, as I have not personally committed myself to wearing it at this point in my spiritual journey (though yes, I am Muslim for those of you who have asked…).”
She argued that she wanted to show people that “the Quran is accessible for anyone who wishes to explore it or listen.”
The singer is a fan of Morocco’s diversity and music. She has sung many Andalusi, Amazigh, and Arabic renowned songs.
She is also married to a Moroccan man. In August, Grout shared a post on Facebook to express her pride for representing Morocco’s culture at the Orientalys Festival in Montreal, Canada. She said she sang songs for the late Hamid El Zahir, a Moroccan renowned singer, and different other songs with Morocco’s Gnawa.
The singer is also fond of Moroccan traditional dresses, known as the Kaftan.
In October, she shared a video wearing a beautifully made kaftan with pearls and a throne.
“This was the most royal Moroccan dress I have ever worn!” she commented.
Grout amazed her followers first in the Arabs Got Talent competition, when she appeared singing for legendary Egyptian singer, Oum Kalthoum. She also plays the Oud instrument since her childhood.
