Can you recite one third of the Qur’aan in one night?

July 22, 2011

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to his Companions:
‘Could any one of you not recite one third of the Qur’aan in one night?’
They found the idea too difficult, and said, ‘Who among us could do that, O Messenger of Allaah?’
He said, ‘Allaahu’l-ahad, al- samad [i.e., Soorat al-Ikhlaas] is one third of the Qur’aan.’” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4628)

Listen to the Surah : (Arabic/English)
