Our next question says too far off from London emails and says that is there any specific etiquettes or customs that one must do when one finishes reciting the Quran?
No, he lay him first.
So this is a simple, beautiful question and she's asking about what are the manners that the Shetty encourages or advises us, when we have recited the Quran, how we've got to the end of the Koran, and of course it is one of the greatest acts of worship to continuously recite the Quran. The blessings of reciting the Quran are something that everybody knows and I've given entire hood buzz and talks about that and there are beyond the scope of our talk today. Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us in the Quran, in Medina at Luna kita la he those who recite the tilava of the book of Allah subhana wa tada and then mentions the prayer and the fasting, those are the people that shall get to reward
that shall never be failing, always going to be successful. And he describes the believers are those who recite the Quran the way that it should be recited, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever recites one word of the book of a lot shall get 10 good deeds. And I'm not saying I don't mean counts as a word rather Elif counts as a word and lamb counts as a word and mean counts as a word. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whoever reads the Quran fluidly, is in the company of the noble angels, and whoever reads the Quran, but with difficulty stumbling. We know there's a difficulty reading the Quran for some people, even that person shall get the double reward
and our Prophet sallallahu. It said him told us that the one who would constantly read the Quran, the Companion of the Quran, that person will be told to rise up on the day of judgment and to continue reciting as he used to recite in this world. So the more one recites the Koran, the more blessed it is, and we are recommended by the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam to recite the Quran continuously and daily. And the famous hadith of Buddha would not the last one that Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah asked, asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how many days Should I finish to hold on in? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in 14 days finished the whole Quran in 40
days. So even Abdullah bin Amma said, I can do more than this. So the Prophet has said in 30 days, that he said, I can do more than this. So he said, in two weeks, I can do more than this in 10 days, then he said, I can do more than this. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, do it in seven, and don't do it in less than that. And in one Hadith, he explicitly said, whoever reads the Koran in less than three days has not understood it properly. So many of the senior Sahaba like, even Masood, and like, Earth might have been found on the lawn, they would recite the Quran Weekly, right? every single week, they would finish the whole or on and the Prophet says an explicitly encouraged all of
us to finish the Quran in around 40 days. And if not, then 30 days and from this 30 days and seven days, our scholars have extracted the markers that we call Jews are observed or Bara in the Indian Pakistani subcontinent, right. And we have also the seven as well as the lenses that are found there. All of this is based on this hadith of Abdullah bin Ahmed. And if we cannot do one full Jews, then to do lesser than this is also fine. And if you cannot even do in 40 days, the point is to do something is better than nothing. And I advise myself in all of you to read the Quran daily, even if it's just one page a day, even if it's just one page a day or two pages or half a page, just read
the Koran continuously. It is something that is very, very beneficial. It feeds the soul and heart It makes your heart pure, it brings you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now all of this was a precursor to the question. The question was what should be done? Or is there anything to be done when one finishes the entire Quran and gets to sue that?
little fella conservativeness What does to be done? When it gets to the end? Well, nothing is obligatory, but a number of things are mentioned in the Arthur of the Sahaba and also in the earlier traditions of them is that when one finishes the Quran, it is recommended via the actions of the Sahaba there is no Hadith particularly, but the Sahaba understood this, it is recommended that you make a special deal at the end of that recitation. And it is authentically reported that NSM mnemonic the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he finished the Koran. He would gather his whole family
His his wife, his children, the whole household, and he would make a special at the end of that recitation. And it is also narrated from Mujahid that whenever the Sahaba would finish Hutton of the Quran, they would make dua and they would say Allah Rama comes down at the recitations ending. And in abus rhodiola, one, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a neighbor who had read the Quran constantly, he told he would tell his servant, one, my neighbor is going to get to the end, the last Jews, he would recite in a loud voice, he told his servant, well, my neighbor is going to get to the end, call me and then he would come and listen and make dua with him because
he knew his neighbors making dua. Right. So all of these demonstrate that there was a culture, there was a culture amongst the Sahaba that when the Quranic recitation finishes, that there is a special blessing, and there's a special that is to be done. And from this, the Omaha's extrapolated the habit, which is not explicitly in the sooner but neither is it a bit it is completely allowed to make a DA Hutton cotton to interact with a normal bond or at any time you make a dua when you finish the recitation of the Quran, because it is something that is beneficial. Now, there is no drama narrated from the Sunnah obviously, because the whole concept is coming from the Sahaba. But any
dollar that you make, and preferably a drama that involves the Quran itself, ie Allah make the Quran, the light of my heart, oh, well I make Koran an intercessor from Allah, use the Quran to guide me, Oh Allah make Quran and evidence for me and not evidence against me. So and you can make any draw that you want, and you can make it in any language, and you can make it with anybody present of your family. And, and, and you know, friends there, or you can do it in private, whatever you want to do. All of this is something that is encouraged from the actions of the Sahaba. And although of course, it's encouraged, it's not logic. The other thing that is encouraged, the other
thing that is encouraged, it is reported in a hadith in Timothy, and the the chain has a weakness in it, but the concept is there and there's no problem acting upon a weak idea that a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or messenger of Allah, what is the best of all good deeds? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'll have one more time. And what this means is that the one who's going on a journey, right, the one who goes on a journey, he stops for a while, and then he continues on. That's the meaning of the phrase. So the man said, What does this mean? And how do you one more time? What do you mean? I don't understand. So the Prophet system said in this
hadith and Timothy, that the person finishes reading the Koran until he comes to the end of it, and then he goes back to the beginning. Okay, and he starts all over again. From this, and now we and a sweetie and others they have extracted from this, as Mr Masuda said, you're suddenly the photo amid a hot sweaty, unusual, a few heraclea well heighten the hydatid tirmidhi that it is something that is good. And something that is recommended that when a person finishes one recitation that he then immediately begins from the beginning the second recitation all over again, so that there is the continuity that is done. So what this means is that when you finish reciting surah, Innes, right,
you may make the dry right then and there. Or you may go back to the beginning of skeletal Baccarat and recite a few verses a page and then make your drop. Because the point is you want to demonstrate to Allah subhana wa Taala that you are going to continuously recite this book. So when you get to the end of certain NASS, you may make a dua, and then before you leave that gathering, go back to the beginning and then recite Fatiha and the beginning of Bukhara even if it's just five verses of Baccarat, but the point is given that I've staked my next journey, and I'm going to continuously go on and on and on, and that's what had lower mortality means that once he gets to one destination, he
then goes on again, never stopping because it demonstrates the continuity of our worship and our the level of the aura. So these are two. These are two general recommendations about about what one should do when one finishes the Quran and the both of them are recommendations. They are not obligations and ally xojo knows best.
