Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

What is the reference for this narration? Can it be quoted?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Anyone who recites the Quran let him ask [all his needs] by it from Allah alone. For soon such people will come who will recite the Qur’an and ask from people”



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Imran ibn Husayn (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2917)


This Hadith either means that a person should ask Allah Ta’ala to fulfil all his needs of this world as well as the Hereafter through the Quran or, When a person recites a verse regarding the mercy of Allah Ta’ala, he should seek Allah’s mercy and when he recites a verse regarding seeking protection he should seek protection.

(Refer: Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 2917)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
