What Should You Say After Reciting the Qurʾān?

What Should You Say After Reciting the Qurʾān?

An Abandoned Sunnah

In the Name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, praise and security be upon the Messenger of Allāh.

To proceed:

In the hope of reviving an abandoned Sunnah and extinguishing an innovation which replaced that beloved Sunnah, we present to our readers the only authentic supplication to be said after reciting Qurʾān.

It is recommended to say the following supplication after reciting any portion of the Qurʾān:

 

سُبْحَانَكَ اللّٰهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، لا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

Evidence:

ʿĀʾishah [may Allāh be pleased with her] said:

“The Messenger of Allāh would not sit in a sitting, nor recite Qurʾān nor pray a prayer except that he would end it with certain words.” She said: “So I said: O Messenger of Allāh, I see that you do not sit in a sitting nor recite Qurʾān nor pray a prayer except that you end it with these words?”

He [praise and security of Allāh be upon him] said:

“Yes, whoever said anything good, a seal is placed upon that good for him and whoever said any evil it is expiation for him:

سُبْحَانَكَ اللّٰهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، لا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

{O Allāh, far removed are You from any imperfection and praise to You, there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek Your forgiveness and repent to You}.”

Grading: Ṣaḥīḥ

Al-Ḥāfiẓ b. Ḥajr said in al-Nukat [2/733]:

 “Its isnād is ṣaḥīḥ.”

Al-Albānī said in al-Ṣaḥīḥah [7/495] regarding al-Nasā’ī’s narration:

“This is also a ṣaḥīḥ isnād on the condition of Muslim.”

Sources: al-Nasāʿī in al-Sunan al-Kubrā [9/123/10067], al-Samʿānī in Adab al-Imlāʾ wa al-Istimlāʾ [p.75] and Ibn Nāṣir al-Dīn in Khātimat Tawḍīḥ al-Mushtabih [9/282]

Note: So do not say ṣadaqAllāhul-ʿAẓīm after reciting the Qurʾān as it is not authentically reported from the Prophet [may Allāh’s praise and security be upon him].
