Reciting Surah ikhlas ten times

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is there any narration mentioning virtue of reciting Surah ikhlas 10 times, or 20 times or more. I know about the narration mentioning reward of reciting it thrice. Any other narration?



The famous Tabi’i; Sa’id ibnul Musayyab (rahimahullah) reported (without citing his source above him- referred to as mursal) that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Whoever recites surah ikhlas ten times will receive a palace in Jannah in return, and who recites it twenty times will receive two palaces therein. Likewise, whoever recites this surah thirty times will get three palaces in Jannah.’

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) commented: ‘By Allah! In that case we shall have lots of palaces (i.e, since we will recite this a lot).

Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) replied:

‘Allah has abundant treasure.’

(Sunan Darimi, hadith: 3429)

Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has graded this as good (mursalun jayyid)

(Tafsir Ibn Kathir, surah ikhlas)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
