Take Barakah from the Quran

Question

Is the following narration authentic? (It has been attributed to Nabi -sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam-)

تبرك بالقران فانه كلام الله

 

Answer

‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has referenced this to Tabarani.

(Kanzul ‘Ummal, Hadith: 2326 and 2364. Also see Al-Fathul Kabir, Hadith: 5292)

 

I could not locate the chain for it.

 

Translation

Take blessing (Barakah) from the Quran, as it is the word of Allah

 

However, the broader meaning of this is indeed proven beyond doubt.

Allah Ta’ala has labelled the Holy Quran as being a source of Barakah (Mubarak) in several verses.

Allah Ta’ala says:

‘And this is a Mubarak (blessed/full of blessings) book that we have revealed…’

(Surah An’am, Ayah: 92)

 

‘A book we have revealed to you which is full of blessings (Mubarak).’

(Surah Sad, Ayah: 29)

Other similar verses appear in Surah An’am, Ayah: 155 and Surah Ambiya, Ayah: 50.

 

Surah Baqarah has also been termed as a source of Barakah. See here.

 

Therefore, we are all encouraged to take the Barakah of the Quran, by keeping it in our homes, and more importantly, by reciting it and practicing upon it!

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
