In the Hadith, which Verse of the Quran has been mentioned as the Verse of ‘Izz (عزّ)?
Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded the following Hadith:
Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Anas Al Juhani (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Verse of strength is:
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيُّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًا
‘Say, all praise belongs to Allah, Who has not taken a child, has no partner in kingdom, nor is He helpless to need a protector and Declare His greatness in abundance.’ (Surah Bani Israil, Verse: 111)
(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 439/440. Refer: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 1192 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 52 and vol. 10 pg. 96)
‘Izz or strength in this Hadith means: ‘The Verse that displays Allah’s strength’. Some commentators have also mentioned that whomsoever recites this Verse daily, will gain strength and courage.
(Refer: At Taysir of ‘Allamah Munawi, vol. 1 pg. 11 and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 23)
