Four thousand angels say amin to the du’a of one who completes the Quran

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is this authentic:

In Sunan Darimi, there is a narration of Humayd Al A’araj (rahimahullah) who states:

“Whoever recites the Quran and then makes du’a, four thousand (4000) angels say amin to his du’a”



Imam Darimi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has declared the chain weak.

(Sunan Darimi: 3524, Nataijul Afkar, vol.3 pg. 177)


The narration is suitable to quote as the statement of Humayd Al A’araj (rahimahullah), to explain the virtue of a Quran completion. ‘Allamah Nawawi (rahimahullah) has also cited this narration in Al Adhkar.

(Al Adhkar: 321. Also see: At Tibyan Fi Adabi Hamalatil Quran, pg. 183)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
