Holy Quran has a refreshing, uplifting and revitalizing effect on a person who believes in Allah and wants to become closer to Him.

9 Hadiths on ‘Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad’ [Surah Ikhlaas]

 

  • Hadith 1

From Qutaadah ibn al-Numaan (may Allah be pleased with him) who said that a man stayed up to worship Allah at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) just before dawn and recited Qul huwa Allahu ahad, but did not recite anything else. In the morning, the man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and told him about this, thinking that perhaps he was not doing enough. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: By the One in Whose hand is my soul, it is equivalent to one-third of the Quran. (al-Bukhaari, 4627).

 

  • Hadith 2

Ahmad reported from Abu Saeed al-Khudri that a man said, O Messenger of Allah, I have a neighbor who prays at night and he only ever recites Qul huwa Allahu ahad as if he did not think much of this. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: By the One in Whose hand is my soul, it is equivalent to one-third of the Quraan. (al-Musnad, 10965)

 

  • Hadith 3

Abu Saeed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said to his Companions: Could any one of you not recite one third of the Quran in one night? They found the idea too difficult, and said, Who among us could do that, O Messenger of Allah? He said, Allahul-ahad, al- samad [i.e., Soorat al-Ikhlaas] is one third of the Quran. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4628)

 

  • Hadith 4

Aishah R.A reported that when the Prophet (eace and blessings of Allah be upon him) went to bed, he would cup his hands together, blow into them and recite into them Qul huwa Allahu ahad [Soorat al-Ikhlaas], Qul aoodhu bi Rabbil-falaq [Soorat al-Falaq] and Qul aoodhu bi Rabbil-naas [Soorat al-Naas] (these are the last 3 soorahs of the Quraan Translator). Then he would wipe as much of his body as he could with his hands, starting with his head and face, and the front of his body. He would do this three times. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4630)

 

  • Hadith 5

Aaishah also reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sent a man in charge of a small military campaign, and when he recited Quraan whilst leading his companions in prayer, he would always end with Qul huwa Allahu ahad. When they came back, (his companions) mentioned that to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), who told them to ask him why he did that. So they asked him, and he said, Because it is a description of the Most Merciful, and I love to recite it. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Tell him that Allah loves him. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6827)

 

  • Hadith 6

Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Abzaa reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to recite Sabbih isma Rabbik al-Alaa (Soorat al-Alaa, #87), Qul yaa ayyuhaal-kaafiroon (Soorat al-Kaafiroon, #109) and Qul huwa Allahu ahad (Soorat al-Ikhlaas, #112) in his witr prayer, and when he had finished, he would repeat Subhaan al-Malik al-Quddoos (Glory be to the King, the Holy) three times, making the last vowel long on the third recitation. (Reported by al-Nisaai, 1721)

 

  • Hadith 7

Uqbah ibn Aamir said: I met the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and he said to me, O Uqbah ibn Aamir, shall I not teach you some Soorahs the like of which have not been revealed in the Tawraat (Torah) or the Zaaboor (Psalms) or the Injeel (Gospel) or in the Quran? There is no night comes but you should not recite (i.e., every night you should recite) Qul huwa Allahu ahad [Soorat al-Ikhlaas], Qul aoodhu bi Rabbil-falaq [Soorat al-Falaq] and Qul aoodhu bi Rabbil-naas [Soorat al-Naas]. Uqbah said: So every night I would recite them. It became my duty to recite them, because the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) had commanded me to do so (Musnad Ahmad, 16810)

 

  • Hadith 8

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) heard a man reciting Qul huwa Allahu ahad, and said, It is his right. They asked, O Messenger of Allaah, what is his right? He said, Paradise is his right. (Reported by Imaam Ahmad, 7669)

 

  • Hadith 9

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Whoever recites Qul huwa Allahu ahad ten times, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise. (Saheeh al-Jaami al-Sagheer, 6472).

 

In short, it is essential that every Muslim realizes the importance of Surah Ikhlas, memorize it and recite it on daily basis to receive numerous rewards and benefits. May Allah (SWT) make us read this Surah in excess so that we can earn blessings from our Lord! Ameen
