Book Sixty One – The Book on The Virtues of the Qur'an



Hadith Number 502.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) and Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) remained in Makkah for ten years, during which the Qur'an used to be revealed to him; and he stayed in Al-Madinah for ten years.


Hadith Number 503.

Narrated by Abu 'Uthman: I was informed that Jibril (Alayhi Salam) came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while Um Salama was with him. Jibril (Alayhi Salam) started talking (to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)). Then the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked Um Salama, "Who is this?" She replied, "He is Dihya (al-Kalbi)." When Jibril (Alayhi Salam) had left, Um Salama said, "By Allah, I did not take him for anybody other than him (i.e. Dihya) till I heard the sermon of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) wherein he informed about the news of Jibril (Alayhi Salam)." The sub-narrator asked Abu 'Uthman: From whom have you heard that? Abu 'Uthman said: From Usama bin Zaid (Radhi Allahu Anhu).


Hadith Number 504.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Every Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was given miracles because of which people believed, but what I have been given, is Divine Inspiration which Allah has revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will outnumber the followers of the other Prophets on the Day of Resurrection."


Hadith Number 505.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah sent down His Divine Inspiration to His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)continuo usly and abundantly during the period preceding his death till He took him unto Him. That was the period of the greatest part of revelation; and Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) died after that.


Hadith Number 506.

Narrated by Jundub (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) fell ill and did not offer the night prayer (Tahajjud prayer) for a night or two. A woman (the wife of Abu Lahab) came to him and said, "O Muhammad ! I do not see but that your Satan has left you." Then Allah revealed (Surah-Ad-Duha):

'By the fore-noon, and by the night when it darkens (or is still); Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor hated you.' (Surah Ad-Duha 93)


Hadith Number 507.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik: (The Caliph) 'Uthman ordered Zaid bin Thabit, Said bin Al-As, 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair and 'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Harith bin Hisham to write the Qur’an in the form of a book (Mushafs) and said to them. "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit (Al-Ansari) regarding any dialectic Arabic utterance of the Qur’an, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, for the Qur’an was revealed in this dialect." So they did it.


Hadith Number 508.

Narrated by Safwan bin Ya'la bin Umaiya: Ya'la (Radhi Allahu Anhu) used to say, "I wish I could see Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) at the time he is being inspired Divinely." When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was at Al-Ja'rana and was shaded by a garment hanging over him and some of his companions were with him, a man perfumed with scent came and said, "O Allah's Messenger! What is your opinion regarding a man who assumes Ihram and puts on a cloak after perfuming his body with scent?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) waited for a while, and then the Divine Inspiration descended upon him. 'Umar pointed out to Ya'la, telling him to come. Ya'la came and pushed his head (underneath the screen which was covering the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) and behold! The Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) face was red and he kept on breathing heavily for a while and then he was relieved. Thereupon he said, "Where is the questioner who asked me about 'Umrah a while ago?" The man was sought and then was brought before the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who said (to him), "As regards the scent which you perfumed your body with, you must wash it off thrice, and as for your cloak, you must take it off; and then perform in your 'Umrah all those things which you perform in Hajj."


Hadith Number 509.

Narrated by Zaid bin Thabit (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (Radhi Allahu Anhu) sent for me when the people of Yamama had been killed (i.e., a number of the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) Companions who fought against Musailama). (I went to him) and found 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu) sitting with him. Abu Bakr then said (to me), "Umar has come to me and said: "Casualties were heavy among the Qurra' of the! Qur'an (i.e. those who knew the Qur’an by heart) on the day of the Battle of Yamama, and I am afraid that more heavy casualties may take place among the Qurra' on other battlefields, whereby a large part of the Qur'an may be lost. Therefore I suggest, you (Abu Bakr) order that the Qur'an be collected." I said to 'Umar, "How can you do something which Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not do?" 'Umar said, "By Allah, that is a good project."Umar kept on urging me to accept his proposal till Allah opened my chest for it and I began to realize the good in the idea which 'Umar had realized." Then Abu Bakr said (to me). 'You are a wise young man and we do not have any suspicion about you, and you used to write the Divine Inspiration for Allah's Messenger. So you should search for (the fragmentary scripts of) the Qur'an and collect it in one book)." By Allah if they had ordered me to shift one of the mountains, it would not have been heavier for me than this ordering me to collect the Qur'an. Then I said to Abu Bakr, "How will you do something which Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not do?" Abu Bakr replied, "By Allah, it is a good project." Abu Bakr kept on urging me to accept his idea until Allah opened my chest for what He had opened the chests of Abu Bakr and 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) . So I started looking for the Qur'an and collecting it from (what was written on) palmed stalks, thin white stones and also from the men who knew it by heart, till I found the last Verse of Surah At-Taubah (Repentance) with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari, and I did not find it with anybody other than him. The Verse is:

'Verily there has come unto you an Messenger (Muhammad) (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty... (till the end of Surah-Baraa' (At-Taubah) (Surah At-Taubah 9: 128-129)

Then the complete manuscripts (copy) of the Qur'an remained with Abu Bakr till he died, then with 'Umar till the end of his life, and then with Hafsa, the daughter of 'Umar.

Hadith Number 510.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman came to Uthman (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) at the time when the people of Sham and the people of Iraq were Waging war to conquer Arminya and Adharbijan. Hudhaifa was afraid of their (the people of Sham and Iraq) differences in the recitation of the Qur'an, so he said to 'Uthman (Radhi Allahu Anhu), "O chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book (Qur’an) as Jews and the Christians did before." So 'Uthman sent a message to Hafsa saying, "Send us the manuscripts of the Qur'an so that we may compile the Qur'anic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you." Hafsa sent it to 'Uthman. 'Uthman then ordered Zaid bin Thabit, 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, Said bin Al-As and 'AbdurRahman bin Harith bin Hisham to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies. 'Uthman said to the three Quraishi men, "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit on any point in the Qur'an, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, the Qur'an was revealed in their tongue." They did so, and when they had written many copies, 'Uthman returned the original manuscripts to Hafsa. 'Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Qur'anic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt. Said bin Thabit added, "A Verse from Surah Ahzab was missed by me when we copied the Qur'an and I used to hear Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) reciting it. So we searched for it and found it with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari. (That Verse was):

'Among the Believers are men who have been true in their covenant with Allah.' (Surah Al-Ahzab 33: 23)


Hadith Number 511.

Narrated by Zaid bin Thabit (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) sent for me and said, "You used to write the Divine Revelations for Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam): So you should search for (the Qur'an and collect) it." I started searching for the Qur'an till I found the last two Verses of Surah At-Taubah with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari and I could not find these Verses with anybody other than him. (They were):

'Verily there has come unto you an Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)(Muhammad) from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty...' (Surah At-Taubah 9: 128-129)


Hadith Number 512.

Narrated by Al-Bara (Radhi Allahu Anhu): There was revealed: 'Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and those who strive and fight in the Cause of Allah.' (Surah An-Nisa' 4: 95)

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Call Zaid for me and let him bring the board, the inkpot and the scapula bone (or the scapula bone and the ink pot)."' Then he said, "Write: 'Not equal are those Believers who sit...", and at that time 'Amr bin Um Maktum, the blind man was sitting behind the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). He said, "O Allah's Messenger! What is your order for me (as regards the above Verse) as I am a blind man?" So, instead of the above Verse, the following Verse was revealed:

'Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame etc.) and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah.' (Surah An-Nisa' 4: 95)


Hadith Number 513.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Jibril (Alayhi Salam) recited the Qur'an to me in one way. Then I requested him (to read it in another way), and continued asking him to recite it in other ways, and he recited it in several ways till he ultimately recited it in seven different ways."


Hadith Number 514.

Narrated by 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I heard Hisham bin Hakim reciting Surah Al-Furqan during the lifetime of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and I listened to his recitation and noticed that he recited in several different ways which Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had not taught me. I was about to jump over him during his prayer, but I controlled my temper, and when he had completed his prayer, I put his upper garment around his neck and seized him by it and said, "Who taught you this Surah which I heard you reciting?" He replied, "Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) taught it to me." I said, "You have told a lie, for Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has taught it to me in a different way from yours." So I dragged him to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said (to Allah's Messenger):

"I heard this person reciting Surah Al-Furqan in a way which you haven't taught me!" On that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Release him, (O 'Umar!) Recite, O Hisham!" Then he recited in the same way as I heard him reciting. Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "It was revealed in this way," and added, "Recite, O 'Umar!" I recited it as he had taught me. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then said, "It was revealed in this way. This Qur'an has been revealed to be recited in seven different ways, so recite of it whichever (way) is easier for you (or read as much of it as may be easy for you)."


Hadith Number 515.

Narrated by Yusuf bin Mahk : While I was with 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha), the mother of the Believers, a person from Iraq came and asked, "What type of shroud is the best?" 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "May Allah be merciful to you! What does it matter?" He said, "O mother of the Believers! Show me (the copy of) your Qur'an," She said, "Why?" He said, "In order to compile and arrange the Qur'an according to it, for people recite it with its Surahs not in proper order." 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "What does it matter which part of it you read first? (Be informed) that the first thing that was revealed thereof was a Surah from Al-Mufassal, and in it was mentioned Paradise and the Fire. When the people embraced Islam, the Verses regarding legal and illegal things were revealed. If the first thing to be revealed was: 'Do not drink alcoholic drinks.' people would have said, 'We will never leave alcoholic drinks,' and if there had been revealed, 'Do not commit illegal sexual intercourse,' they would have said, 'We will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.' While I was a young girl of playing age, the following Verse was revealed in Makkah to Muhammad: 'Nay! But the Hour is their appointed time (for their full recompense), and the Hour will be more grievous and more bitter.' (Surah Al-Qamar 54: 46) Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) and Surah An-Nisa (The Women) were revealed while I was with him." Then 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) took out the copy of the Qur'an for the man and dictated to him the Verses of the Surahs (in their proper order).


Hadith Number 516.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Surah Bani-lsrael (Al-Isra’), Al-Kahf (The Cave), Maryam, Taha, Al-Anbiya' (The Prophets) are amongst my first earnings and my old property, and (in fact) they are my old property.


Hadith Number 517.

Narrated by Al-Bara' (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I learnt, 'Glorify the Name of your Lord the Most High' (Surah Al-A'la No 87), before the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came (to Al-Madinah).

Hadith Number 518.

Narrated by Shaqiq: Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "I learnt An-Naza’ir(*) which the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to recite in pairs in each Rak'ah." Then Abdullah got up and Alqama accompanied him to his house, and when Alqama came out, we asked him (about those Surahs). He said, "They are twenty Surahs that start from the beginning of Al-Mufassal, according to the arrangement done be Ibn Mas'ud, (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and end with the Surahs starting with Ha Mim, e.g. Ha Mim (the Smoke) and "About what they question one another?" (Surah An-Naba’78: 1)

* An-Naza’ir is the Surahs that deal with the same topic or that are equal in length.


Hadith Number 519.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan because Jibril (Alayhi Salam) used to meet him every night of the month of Ramadan till it elapsed. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to recite the Qur'an for him. When Jibril (Alayhi Salam) met him, he used to become more generous than the fast wind in doing good.


Hadith Number 520.


Narrated by Abu-Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Jibril (Alayhi Salam) used to repeat the recitation of the Qur'an with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) once a year, but he repeated it twice with him in the year he died. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to stay in I'tikaf for ten days every year (in the month of Ramadan), but in the year of his death, he stayed in I'tikaf for twenty days.


Hadith Number 521.

Narrated by Masriq: 'Abdullah bin 'Amr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) mentioned 'Abdullah bin Masud (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and said, "I shall ever love that man, for I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, 'Take (learn) the Qur'an from four: 'Abdullah bin Masud, Salim, Mu'adh and Ubai bin Ka'b. (Radhi Allahu Anhum)'"


Hadith Number 522.

Narrated by Shaqiq bin Salama: Once 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu) delivered a sermon before us and said, "By Allah, I learnt over seventy Surahs direct from Allah's Messenger. By Allah, the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to know that I am one of those who know Allah's Book best of all of them, yet I am not the best of them." Shaqiq added: I sat in his religious gathering and I did not hear anybody opposing him (in his speech).


Hadith Number 523.

Narrated by 'Alqama: While we were in the city of Hims (in Syria), Ibn Mas'ud recited Surah Yusuf. A man said to him), "It was not revealed in this way." Then Ibn Mas'ud said, "I recited it in this way before Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)and he confirmed my recitation by saying, 'Well done!' " Ibn Mas'ud detected the smell of wine from the man's mouth, so he said to him, "Aren't you ashamed of telling a lie about Allah's Book and (along with this) you drink alcoholic liquors too?" Then he lashed him according to the law.


Hadith Number 524.

Narrated by 'Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) (Radhi Allahu Anhu): By Allah other than Whom none has the right to be worshipped! There is no Surah revealed in Allah's Book but I know at what place it was revealed; and there is no Verse revealed in Allah's Book but I know about whom it was revealed. And if I know that there is somebody who knows Allah's Book better than I, and he is at a place that camels can reach, I would go to him.


Hadith Number 525.

Narrated by Qatada: I asked Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): "Who collected the Qur'an at the time of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?" He replied, "Four, all of whom were from the Ansar: Ubai bin Ka'b, Mu'adh bin Jabal, Zaid bin Thabit and Abu Zaid."

Hadith Number 527.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Umar said, "Ubai was the best of us in the recitation (of the Qur'an) yet we leave some of what he recites." Ubai says, "I have taken it from the mouth of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and will not leave for anything whatever." But Allah said, "None of Our Revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten but We substitute something better or similar." (Surah Al-Baqarah 2: 106)


Hadith Number 528.

Narrated by Abu Sa'id Al-Mu'alla (Radhi Allahu Anhu): While I was praying, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) called me but I did not respond to his call. Later I said, "O Allah's Messenger! I was praying." He said, "Didn't Allah say: 'O you who believe! Give your response to Allah (by obeying Him) and to His Messenger when he calls you'?" (Surah Al-Anfal 8: 24)

He then said, "Shall I not teach you the most superior Surah in the Qur'an?" He said, '(It is), 'Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. ' (i.e., Surah Al-Fatihah) which consists of seven repeatedly recited Verses and the Magnificent Qur'an which was given to me."


Hadith Number 529.

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): While we were on one of our journeys, we dismounted at a place where a slave girl came and said, "The chief of this tribe has been stung by a scorpion and our men are not present; is there anybody among you who can treat him (by reciting something)?" Then one of our men went along with her though we did not think that he knew any such treatment. But he treated the chief by reciting something, and the sick man recovered whereupon he gave him thirty sheep and gave us milk to drink (as a reward). When he returned, we asked our friend, "Did you know how to treat with the recitation of something?" He said, "No, but I treated him only with the recitation of the Mother of the Book (i.e., Al-Fatihah)." We said, "Do not say anything (about it) till we reach or ask the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) so when we reached Al-Madinah, we mentioned that to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (in order to know whether the sheep which we had taken were lawful to take or not). The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "How did he come to know that it (Al-Fatihah) could be used for treatment? Distribute your reward and assign for me one share thereof as well."


Hadith Number 530.

Narrated by Abu Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "If somebody recited the last two Verses of Surah Al-Baqarah at night, that will be sufficient for him."

Narrated Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered me to guard the Zakat revenue of Ramadan. Then somebody came to me and started stealing of the foodstuff. I caught him and said, "I will take you to Allah's Messenger!" Then Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) described the whole narration and said:) That person said (to me), "Please don't take me to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and I will tell you a few words by which Allah will benefit you.When you go to your bed, recite Ayat-Al-Kursi, (Surah Al-Baqarah 2: 255) for then there will be a guard from Allah who will protect you all night long, and Shaitan will not be able to come near you till dawn." (When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) heard the story) he said (to me), "He (who came to you at night) told you the truth although he is a liar; and it was Shaitan."


Hadith Number 531.

Narrated by Al-Bara' (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A man was reciting Surah Al-Kahf and his horse was tied with two ropes beside him. A cloud came down and spread over that man, and it kept on coming closer and closer to him till his horse started jumping (as if afraid of something). When it was morning, the man came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), and told him of that experience. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "That was As-Sakina (tranquility) which descended because of (the recitation of) the Qur'an."

Hadith Number 532.

Narrated by Aslam (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was traveling on one of his journeys, and 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was traveling along with him at night. 'Umar asked him about something, but Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) I did not answer him. He asked again, but he did not answer. He asked for the third time!, but he did not answer. On that, 'Umar said to himself, "May your mother lose you! You have asked Allah's Messenger three times, but he did not answer at all!" Umar said, "So I made my camel go fast till I was ahead of the people, and I was afraid that something might be revealed about me. After a little while I heard a call maker calling me, I said, 'I was afraid that some Qur'anic Verse might be revealed about me.' So I went to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and greeted him. He said, 'Tonight there has been revealed to me a Surah which is dearer to me than that on which the sun shines (i.e. the world).' Then he recited: 'Verily! We have given you (O Muhammad I, a manifest victory.' "(Surah al-Fath 48:1).


Hadith Number 533.

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A man heard another man reciting (Surah-Al-Ikhlas) 'Say He is Allah, (the) One.' (112. 1) repeatedly. The next morning he came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and informed him about it as if he thought that it was not enough to recite. On that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "By Him in Whose Hand my life is, this Surah is equal to one-third of the Qur'an!"

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My brother, Qatada bin An-Nau'man said, "A man performed the night prayer late at night in the lifetime of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and he read: 'Say: He is Allah, (the) One,' (112.1) and read nothing besides that. The next morning a man went to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and told him about that. (The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) replied the same as (in Hadith 532) above.)


Hadith Number 534.

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to his companions, "Is it difficult for any of you to recite one third of the Qur'an in one night?" This suggestion was difficult for them so they said, "Who among us has the power to do so, O Allah's Messenger?" Allah Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) replied: " Allah (the) One, the Self-Sufficient Master Whom all creatures need.' (Surah Al-Ikhlas 112.1 to the End) is equal to one third of the Qur'an."


Hadith Number 535.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Whenever Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) became sick, he would recite Mu'awwidhat (Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Nas) and then blow his breath over his body.

Narrated by Usaid bin Hudair: That while he was reciting Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) at night, and his horse was tied beside him, the horse was suddenly startled and troubled. When he stopped reciting, the horse became quiet, and when he started again, the horse was startled again. Then he stopped reciting and the horse became quiet too. He started reciting again and the horse was startled and troubled once again. Then he stopped reciting and his son, Yahya was beside the horse. He was afraid that the horse might trample on him. When he took the boy away and looked towards the sky, he could not see it. The next morning he informed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who said, "Recite, O Ibn Hudair! Recite, O Ibn Hudair!" Ibn Hudair replied, "O Allah's Messenger! My son, Yahya was near the horse and I was afraid that it might trample on him, so I looked towards the sky, and went to him. When I looked at the sky, I saw something like a cloud containing what looked like lamps, so I went out in order not to see it." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Do you know what that was?" Ibn Hudair replied, "No." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Those were Angels who came near to you for your voice and if you had kept on reciting till dawn, it would have remained there till morning when people would have seen it as it would not have disappear."

Shaddad bin Ma'qil asked him, "Did the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) leave anything (besides the Qur'an)?" He replied. "He did not leave anything except what is between the two bindings (of the Qur'an)." Then we visited Muhammad bin Al-Hanafiyya and asked him (the same question).

The Jews did. He then said, "Who will work for me from the middle of the day till the 'Asr prayer for one Qirat each?" The Christians worked accordingly. Then you (Muslims) are working from the Asr prayer till the Maghrib prayer for two Qirats each. They (the Jews and the Christians) said, 'We did more labor but took less wages.'

"No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger!" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him, "Go to your family and see if you can find something.' The man went and returned, saying, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger! I have not found anything."

He went again and returned, saying, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger, not even an iron ring, but I have this waist sheet of mine." The man had no upper garment, so he intended to give her, half his waist sheet. So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, ''What would she do with your waist sheet? If you wear it, she will have nothing of it over her body, and if she wears it, you will have nothing over your body." So that man sat for a long period and then got up, and Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saw him going away, so he ordered somebody to call him.

He replied, "I know such Surah and such Surah and such Surah," and went on counting it, The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked him, "Can you recite it by heart?" he replied, "Yes."

So I was on the point of attacking him in the prayer, but I waited till he finished his prayer, and then I seized him by the collar and said, "Who taught you this Surah which I have heard you reciting?" He replied, "Allah's Messenger taught it to me." I said, "You are telling a lie; By Allah! Allah's Messenger taught me (in a different way) this very Surah which I have heard you reciting."

I heard this person reciting Surah Al-Furqan in a way that you did not teach me, and you have taught me Surah Al-Furqan." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Hisham, recite!"

Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Recite, O 'Umar!" So I recited it as he had taught me. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then said, "It was revealed to be recited in this way."

Hadith Number 563.

Narrated by Abu Wail: We went to 'Abdullah in the morning and a man said, "Yesterday I recited all the Mufassal Surahs." On that 'Abdullah said, "That is very quick, and we have the (Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) recitation, and I remember very well the recitation of those Surahs which the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to recite, and they were eighteen Surahs from the Mufassal, and two Surahs from the Surahs that start with Alif Lam Ha Mim.


Hadith Number 564.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Regarding His (Allah's) Statement: 'Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur'an) to make haste therewith.' (Surah Al-Qiyamah 75:16) And whenever Jibril (Alayhi Salam) descended to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) with the Divine Inspiration, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to move his tongue and lips, and that used to be hard for him, and one could easily recognize that he was being inspired Divinely. So Allah revealed the Verse which occurs in the Surah starting with "I do swear by the Day of Resurrection.' (Surah Al-Qiyamah 75: 1) i.e. 'Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur'an) to make haste then with. It is for Us to collect it (in your mind) (O Muhammad) and give you the ability to recite it 'by heart.' (Surah Al-Qiyamah 75: 16-17) which means: It is for us to collect it (in your mind) and give you the ability to recite it by heart. And when We have recited it to you (O Muhammad) through Jibril (Alayhi Salam) then follow you its recital. (Surah Al-Qiyamah 75:18) means: 'When We reveal it (the Qur'an) to you, Listen to it.' for then: It is for Us to explain it and make it clear to you' (Surah Al-Qiyamah Surah Al-Qiyamah 75: 19) i.e. It is up to Us to explain it through your tongue. So, when Jibril (Alayhi Salam) came to him, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would listen to him attentively, and as soon as Jibril (Alayhi Salam) left, he would recite the Revelations, as Allah had promised him.

Narrated by Abu Musa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him' "O Abu Musa! You have been given one of the musical wind-instruments of the family of Dawud." (*)

Narrated by 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him, "Recite the Qur'an to me." 'Abdullah said, "Shall I recite (the Qur'an) to you while it has been revealed to you?" He said, "I like to hear it from others."

'How (will it be) then when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these people.' (Surah An-Nisa' 4: 41) He said, "Enough for the present," I looked at him and behold! His eyes were overflowing with tears.


Hadith Number 571.

Narrated by Sufyan: Ibn Shubruma said, "I wanted to see how much of the Qur'an can be enough (to recite in prayer) and I could not find a Surah containing less than three Verses, therefore I said to myself), "One ought not to recite less than three (Qur’anic) Verses (in prayer)."

Hadith Number 572.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-As (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My father got me married to a lady of a noble family, and often used to ask my wife about me, and she used to reply, "What a wonderful man he is! He never comes to my bed, nor has he approached me since he married me." When this state continued for a long period, my father told the story to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who said to my father, "Let me meet him." Then I met him and he asked me, "How do you fast?" I replied, "I fast daily," He asked, "How long does it take you to finish the recitation of the whole Qur’an?" I replied, "I finish it every night." On that he said, "Fast for three days every month and recite the Qur'an (and finish it) in one month." I said, "But I have power to do more than that." He said, "Then fast for three days per week." I said, "I have the power to do more than that." He said, "Therefore, fast the most superior type of fasting, (that is, the fasting of (Prophet) Dawud who used to fast every alternate day; and finish the recitation of the whole Qur'an In seven days." I wish I had accepted the permission of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) as I have become a weak old man. It is said that 'Abdullah used to recite one-seventh of the Qur'an during the day-time to some of his family members, for he used to check his memorization of what he would recite at night during the daytime so that it would be easier for him to read at night. And whenever he wanted to gain some strength, he used to give up fasting for some days and count those days to fast for a similar period, for he disliked to leave those things which he used to do during the lifetime of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).


Hadith Number 573.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Amr (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked me, "How long does it take you to finish the recitation of the whole Qur'an?"
