Hadeeth on Reciting Surah Ikhlaas Thrice

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

sum1 needs d Hadith about reading sura Ikhlaas 3 times with reference

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Rasullullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:

قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ تَعْدِلُ ثُلُثَ الْقُرْآنِ

“Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad recital is equivalent to one third of the Qur’an”( Musnad Ahmad, Hadeeth # 404, al-Sunan al-Kubra, Hadeeth # 10531, Shu’ab al-Eemaan, Hadeeth # 2545, Tabrani, Hadeeth # 8562)

 

It is evident from the above Hadeeth that the reward[1] of reciting Surah Ikhlaas is equivalent to reciting one third of the Qur’an. However, there is no specific Hadeeth regarding the virtue of reciting Surah Ikhlaas thrice.

Nevertheless, it is very possible that one who recites Surah Ikhlaas thrice will receive the reward of reciting the entire Qur’an.[2]

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
