Can this narration be quoted?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites ‘Qul Ya Ayyuhal-Kafirun’ [the entire Surah], it equals a quarter (1/4) of the Quran for him.”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has also recorded a similar narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2893- 2894. Also see: Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 147)
The Hadith in question is corroborated and suitable to quote.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
