An Abandoned Sunnah after Reciting the Quraan

*An Abandoned Sunnah after Reciting the Quraan.*

It is preferred, on finishing the recitation of the Quraan to say:

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، أشهد أن لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

"SunhaanakaLlaahumma wabihamdik ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illaa anta astaghfiruka wa atuubu ilayk".

The evidence for this is as follows:

Aaishah - may Allaah be pleased with her - mentioned that:

The Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhi wasallam) was never in a sitting, never recited the Quraan, nor did he ever offer a prayer, except that he ended them all with certain words.

She added:

''So i said to him, O Messenger of Allaah, I noticed that you never are in a sitting, nor do you ever recite the Quraan, nor observe a Salaat, except that you end off with these words''.

He replied by saying, ''Yes''.

''Whoever has said good (words) would have them placed as a seal over the good he has done and whoever has said evil (words) would have them used as an expiation for the evil he uttered''.

(They are):

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، أشهد أن لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ).

Subhaanakallaahumma wabihamdik ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illaa anta astaghfiruka wa atuubu ilayk.

Unfortunately, these days the majority of the people (except those Allaah blesses) have abandoned this Sunnah (either due to ignorance of it or due to forgetfulness).

After reciting the Quran, they replaced this sunnah with:

Sadaqallaahul adheem or kissing the Quraan.

Thus, it is incumbent upon us to spread this sunnah so it can be established once again.

Imaam An-Nasaa'ee named the chapter of this hadeeth in his book as "What to conclude the recitation of the Quraan with."

Its isnaad is authentic as explained by An-Nasaa'ee in "As-Sunanul kubraa".

Ibn Hajar also mentioned in "An-Nukat" (733/2) that its chain of narration is authentic.

Al-Albaanee equally said in "Silsilatu Saheehah" (495/7) that "this is also an authentic chain that conforms with the conditions of Imaam Muslim"

Shaykh Muqbil Al-Waadi'ee mentioned in "Al-Jaami'u Saheeh Mimmaa Laysa Fee Saheehayn" (128/2) that "this is an authentic narration"
The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
