Question

Can you provide the reference for this narration?

“Aswad bin Yazid (rahimahullah) would complete the Quran every second night in Ramadan

 

Answer

Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahumallah) have recorded this.

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 2 pg. 103 and Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 4 pg. 51)

 

Aswad bin Yazid (rahimahullah) was a Mukhadram. [i.e. Those who were alive during the time of Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam but did not get the opportunity to meet him].

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
