Is this statement authentically attributed to ibn Masud (radiyallahu ‘anhu)?
Ibrahim Al-Taymi said: ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud said, ‘Whoever completes a full recital of the Quran then his du’aʾ will be accepted’. He (Ibrahim Al-Taymi) said, when ‘Abdullāh (Ibn Mas’ud) used to complete a full recital of the Quran he would gather his family and supplicate, and they would say amin to his supplication.’
This is recorded in the following sources with a slightly weak chain.
Fadailul Quran of Abu ‘Ubayd, pg. 48 and Fadilul Quran of Ibn Durays, Hadith: 76. Also see Sharhul Ihya, vol. 4 pg. 492
In issues like this, weak narrations are unanimously accepted.
Furthermore, the slight weakness in this chain is negligible, especially since there are other such reports from different Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) that support this. See the following:
When Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would complete the Quran, he would gather his family and children and make du’a for them.
(Al Mu’jamul Kabir of Imam Tabarani. Hafiz Haythami has classified the above narration authentic; Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 172)
