The Angel kisses one who completes a recital of the Quran

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

 Is the following a statement of Sufyan Thawri (rahimahullah) or a Hadith?

اذا ختم الرجل القرآن قبل الملك بين عينيه

When one completes the recital of the Quran, an Angel kisses him between his eyes.


1. This has been recorded as the statement of the pious predecessor:

Imam Habib ibn Abi ‘Amrah – demise: 142 A.H.

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 1910)

After quoting this, Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) writes that when this was related to Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal (rahimahullah) he liked it very much.

Sufyan Thawri is the one who reported this from Habib (rahimahumallah).

2. Imam Abu Bakr Al-Ajurry (rahimahullah) has cited this statement from Imam ‘Isa ibn Yunus (rahimahullah)

(Akhlaqu Ahlil Quran, pg.36)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
