What to Recite in Maghrib Prayer? (Ahadith 730-732)


Volume 1, Book 12, Number 730:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

(My mother) Ummul-Fadl heard me reciting “Wal Mursalati `Urfan” (Surah 77) and said, “O my son! By Allah, your recitation made me remember that it was the last Surah I heard from Allah’s Apostle. He recited it in the Maghrib prayer. “

 Volume 1, Book 12, Number 731:

Narrated Marwan bin Al-Hakam:

Zaid bin Thabit said to me, “Why do you recite very short Surahs in the Maghrib prayer while I heard the Prophet reciting the longer of the two long Surahs?”

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 732:

Narrated Jubair bin Mut’im:

My father said, “I heard Allah’s Apostle reciting “At-Tur” (Surah 52) in the Maghrib prayer.”

  • Recite relatively longer Surahs in Maghrib prayer.
  • Surah al-Mursalaat and Surah At-Tur can be recited in Maghrib prayer – because Prophet (SAW) used to do so.
    These Surahs are easy to memorize as well. They have a certain ‘rhythm’, if I may say.

  1. Mashallah

  2. Salam.
    I think you have to now categorise different ahadeeth according to the topic or according to the baab given in Sahih al Bukhari. Otherwise it is very difficult to trace specific hadiths.

    • Ws. I’ve tried to do that to some extent.
      Ahadith that come in Kitaab-us-Salah, for example, have been tagged with words like ‘salah’, ‘prayer’, ‘namaz’ etc. So that it’s easy to search.

      But you’re right, it should be made easy to search specific Ahadith. I’ll try working on it iA.
