The virtue of listening attentively to Quran

Question

Can you reference this Hadith?

من استمع آية من كتاب الله كانت له نورا يوم القيامة

 

Answer

Imam ‘Abdur Razzaq (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) with an authentic chain.

(Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 6012)

 

However, the nature of this Hadith is not such that could be made up using logic. It will therefore be understood that Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) heard this from Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.

 

Also see Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 162.

 

Translation

Whoever listens attentively to a verse from the Book of Allah, it will be light for for him on the Day of Qiyamah

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
