finishing the Qur’aan in less than three days

source: silsilat ul-ahaadeeth is-saheehathe series of authentic narrationsvol. 5, p. 601


The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites (and finishes) the Qur’aan in less than three days, does not understand it”[1]


Shaykh al-Albaani (rahimahullaah) comments:

“And what has been established from some of the salaf in opposition to this authentic sunnah, does not contradict this, for what is apparent is that it did not reach them.”


[1] Saheeh Abi Daawood #1394

    may Allah reward you for all your effort ukhtee fillah.

    i will be very grateful if you could translate the ahaadeeth on the prohibition of taking payment for the purpose of teaching the Qura’n in as saheehah which start from hadeeth number 256 onwards.

    i was told about these ahaadeeth recently and as i am [aying for my dfaughter to learn the Qura’n,i am trying to find out what correct in regard to this. i am sure there are countless brothers and sisters out there who are unaware of these ahaadeeth and will benefit from them.

    may Allah increase you in the good He has blessed you with.

    umm tameema naz
