Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite Quran while laying in the lap of ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha)

Question

Is this authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recline in the lap Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) even when she would be menstruating. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite Quran while reclining in her lap.

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, “Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recline on my lap while I was menstruating and recite the Quran.”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 297, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 301)

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
