Reality of the statement about when a person completes the Quran…


Wanted to know regarding this saying of Sufyan Thawri (rahimahullah)

إذا ختم الرجل القرآن قبل الملك بين عينيه

‘When a man completes the Quran, an angel kisses him between his eyes.’

The kissing of the angel is a thing which cannot be perceived through understanding, but it has not been attributed to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

  1. Can this be regarded as a mursal of a Tabi’?
  2. If so, can it be regarded Hukman marfu’?
  3. If not, can it be regarded as a kashf of Sufyan Thawri? As it has been termed as ‘min mukhabbati Sufyan’ by Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah).
  4. Is it suitable to quote?
