All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds

By Abu Amina Elias / 28 Dec 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

An-Nawawi records in his book Riyad us-Saliheen:

Abu Sa’eed Al-Mu’alla (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

أَلَاأُعَلِّمُكَأَعْظَمَسُورَةٍفِيالْقُرْآنِقَبْلَأَنْتَخْرُجَمِنْالْمَسْجِدِ

I will teach you the greatest chapter in the Quran before you leave the mosque. He took hold of my hand and when he intended to leave, I said to him,

“Did you not say that you would teach me the greatest chapter in the Quran?”

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

الْحَمْدُلِلَّهِرَبِّالْعَالَمِينَهِيَالسَّبْعُالْمَثَانِيوَالْقُرْآنُالْعَظِيمُالَّذِيأُوتِيتُهُ

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds (1:1), which are the seven oft-repeated verses and the great recitation which has been given to me.

Is it difficult for one of you to recite a third of the Quran in a single night? That was difficult for them, so they said, “Which one of us can do that, O Messenger of Allah?”
