Is this correct?

“Surah ‘Adiyat two times equals one Quran”



This is probably based on the following narration recorded by Imam Abu ‘Ubayd Al Qasim ibn Sallam (rahimahullah) on the authority of Hasan Al Basri (rahimahullah) –mursalan-:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “[Surah] Al ‘Adiyat is equivalent to half a Quran.”

(Fadailul Quran, pg. 263)


Therefore it could be understood from this narration that reciting Surah ‘Adiyat twice is equivalent to one Quran.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
