Reciting Surah Kafirun four times

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Question

Is this true?

Reciting Surah Kafirun four times is equivalent to reciting one Quran.

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded two narrations on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas and Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhum) which states that reciting Surah Kafirun [once] is equivalent to reciting 1/4 of the Quran.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2893-2894. See the narration here)

Therefore it could be deduced from these narrations that reciting Surah Kafirun four times is equivalent to reciting one Quran.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
