Regarding the famous Hadith wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) taught Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) about Iman and other aspects, The Hadith ends with the words: Jaffatis Suhuf. Is it pronounced Jaffat or Juffat? I have heard some recite it both ways.



Jaffat (جَفَّتْ) is the correct way. I have not come across any commentator stating that both ways are correct.

(Refer: Hashiyatus Sindhi ‘Ala Musnadil Imam Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 508)


See the reference and other parts of the Hadith here.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
