For those interested in the Seven Qira’aat, here’s a treat for you: Qari Suhaib Ahmed Meer Muhammadi’s recitation of ayah 9 of Surah Ibraheem in different qira’aat.
Listen and identify the differences. Enjoy! :)
Narrated Anas bin Sirin:
I asked Ibn ‘Umar, “What is your opinion about the two Rakat before the Fajr (compulsory) prayer, as to prolonging the recitation in them?” He said, “The Prophet (p.b.u.h) used to pray at night two Rakat followed by two and so on, and end the prayer by one Raka Witr. He used to offer two Rakat before the Fajr prayer immediately after the Adhan.” (Hammad, the sub-narrator said, “That meant (that he prayed) quickly.)”
Similar Hadith here.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) recited in the two supererogatory Rak`ah of the Fajr prayer Surat Al-Kafirun (No. 109) [in the first Rak`ah], and Surat Al-Ikhlas (No. 112) [in the second rak`ah].
He [SAWS] heard a man reciting the former soorah in the first rak’ah (Surah Kafiroon), so he said, “This is a slave who believes in his Lord.” Then the man recited the latter soorah in the second rak’ah (Surah Ikhlas), so he said, “This is a slave who knows his Lord.”
[Al-Albani in “The Prophet’s Prayer Described”]
And here’s a nice relative blog post I came across. :)
This is all I want to share today:
Lesson: keep out of those discussions where people argue without knowledge.
P.S. this ayah is from one of the most personal favorite passages in the Qur’an. <3
Narrated Abu Rafi:
I offered the ‘Isha’ prayer behind Abu Huraira and he recited, “Idha-s-Sama’u-n-Shaqqat” (84) and prostrated. On my inquiring, he said, “I prostrated behind Abu-l-Qasim (the Prophet) (when he recited that Sura) and I will go on doing it till I meet him.”
The Prophet was on a journey and recited in one of the first two Rakat of the ‘Isha’ prayer “Wat-tini waz-zaituni.” (95)
Narrated Abu Rafi’:
Once I prayed the ‘Isha’ prayer with Abu Huraira and he recited, “Idha-s-Sama’ u-nShaqqat” (84) and prostrated. I said, “What is that?” He said, “I prostrated behind Abu-l-Qasim, (the Prophet) (when he recited that Sura) and I will go on doing it till I meet him.”
I heard the Prophet reciting wat-tini wazzaituni” (95) in the ‘Isha’ prayer, and I never heard a sweeter voice or a better way of recitation than that of the Prophet.
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. “
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?”
Narrated Jubair bin Mut’im:
My father said, “I heard Allah’s Apostle reciting “At-Tur” (Surah 52) in the Maghrib prayer.”
