Pronunciation of a word in the Hadith regarding Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advice to ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)


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.
