Eager to Recite Qur’an

Narrated ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘As: Yazid ibn ‘Abdullah said that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr asked the Prophet (s.a.w.): In how many days should I complete the recitation of the whole Qur’an, O Apostle of Allah? He replied: In one month. He said: I am more energetic to complete it in a period less than this. He kept on repeating these words and lessening the period until he said: Complete its recitation in seven days. He again said: I am more energetic to complete it in a period less than this. The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: He who finishes the recitation of the Qur’an in less than three days does not understand it. (Abu Dawud, Classified as Saheeh by Al-Albani) Vocabulary of The Hadith

شَهْرٍ – month

أَقْوَى – more energetic, more ability, more strength, more power

يُرَدِّدُ – kept repeating

يَفْقَهُ – understands it

أَقَلَّ – less than

Lessons of The Hadith – We should be eager to do more and more worship of Allah s.w.t. This hadith is an example of how the Sahaabah were among the Saabiqoon – forerunners of good. – We should determine our capacity of doing worship and try to push the limits further.
