Is this famous Hadith on the virtue of learning and teaching the Quran authentic?
The best among you is he who learns the Quran and teaches it
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Sahih. The Hadith is therefore authentic.
Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The best of you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it.”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5027-5028)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
