What is the reference for this narration and can it be quoted?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Truly, the person having the best voice with the Qur’an is the one whom, when you hear him recite, you think that he fears Allah.”



Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1339)


The Hadith is corroborated and suitable to quote.

(Refer: Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 439, Kitabuz Zuhd of ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak, Hadith: 113-114, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 30564-30565, Sunan Darimi, Hadith: 3532)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
