Virtues of the Qur'ān

[1] Chapter: How The Divine Revelation Used To Be Revealed And What Was The First Thing Revealed

  • Ḥadīth 1: Narrated 'Ā'isha and Ibn `Abbās: The Prophet () remained in Mecca for ten years, during which the Qur'ān used to be revealed to him; and he stayed in Medina for ten years.
  • Ḥadīth 2: Narrated Abu `Uthmān: I was informed that Gabriel came to the Prophet () while Um Salama was with him. Gabriel started talking (to the Prophet). Then the Prophet () asked Um Salama, "Who is this?" She replied, "He is Dihya (al-Kalbi)." When Gabriel had left, Umm Salama said, "By Allāh, I did not take him for anybody other than him (i.e. Dihya) till I heard the sermon of the Prophet () wherein he informed about the news of Gabriel." The subnarrator asked Abū `Uthmān: From whom have you heard that? Abū `Uthmān said: From Usama bin Zaid.
  • Ḥadīth 3: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet () said, "Every Prophet was given miracles because of which people believed, but what I have been given, is Divine Inspiration which Allāh has revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will outnumber the followers of the other Prophets on the Day of Resurrection."
  • Ḥadīth 4: Narrated Anas bin Mālik: Allāh sent down His Divine Inspiration to His Apostle continuously and abundantly during the period preceding his death till He took him unto Him. That was the period of the greatest part of revelation; and Allāh's Messenger () died after that.
  • Ḥadīth 5: Narrated Jundub: Once the Prophet () fell ill and did not offer the night prayer (Tahajjud prayer) for a night or two. A woman (the wife of Abū Lahab) came to him and said, "O Muḥammad ! I do not see but that your Satan has left you." Then Allāh revealed (Surat-Aḍ-Ḍuḥá): 'By the fore-noon, and by the night when it darkens (or is still); Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor hated you.' (93)

[Text of The Book]

[2] Chapter: The Qur'ān Was Revealed In The Language of Quraish And The Arabs

  • Ḥadīth 1: Narrated Anas bin Mālik: The Caliph `Uthmān ordered Zaid bin Thābit, Sa`īd bin Al-Āṣ, `Abdullāh bin Az-Zubair and `Abdur- Raḥmān bin Al-Ḥārith bin Hishām to write the Qur'ān in the form of a book (Muṣḥafs) and said to them. "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thābit (Al-Anṣārī) regarding any dialectic Arabic utterance of the Qur'ān, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, for the Qur'ān was revealed in this dialect." So they did it.
  • Ḥadīth 2: Narrated Ṣafwān bin Ya`lá Umaiya: Ya`lá used to say, "I wish I could see Allāh's Messenger () at the time he is being inspired Divinely." When the Prophet () was at Al-Ja'rana and was shaded by a garment hanging over him and some of his companions were with him, a man perfumed with scent came and said, "O Allāh's Messenger ()! What is your opinion regarding a man who assumes Iḥram and puts on a cloak after perfuming his body with scent?" The Prophet () waited for a while, and then the Divine Inspiration descended upon him. `Umar pointed out to Ya`lá telling him to come. Ya`lá came and pushed his head (underneath the screen which was covering the Prophet () ) and behold! The Prophet's face was red and he kept on breathing heavily for a while and then he was relieved. Thereupon he said, "Where is the questioner who asked me about `Umra a while ago?" The man was sought and then was brought before the Prophet () who said (to him), "As regards the scent which you perfumed your body with, you must wash it off thrice, and as for your cloak, you must take it off; and then perform in your `Umra all those things which you perform in Ḥajj."

[Text of The Book]

[3] Chapter: The Collection of the Qur'ān

  • Ḥadīth 1: Narrated Zaid bin Thābit: Abū Bakr As--Ṣiddīq sent for me when the people of Yamāma had been killed (i.e., a number of the Prophet's Companions who fought against Musailima). (I went to him) and found ʻUmar ibn al-Khaṭṭāb sitting with him. Abū Bakr then said (to me), "`Umar has come to me and said: "Casualties were heavy among the Qurra' of the Qur'ān (i.e. those who knew the Qur'ān by heart) on the day of the Battle of Yamāma, and I am afraid that more heavy casualties may take place among the Qurra' on other battlefields, whereby a large part of the Qur'ān may be lost. Therefore I suggest, you (Abū Bakr) order that the Qur'ān be collected." I said to `Umar, "How can you do something which Allāh's Apostle did not do?" `Umar said, "By Allāh, that is a good project." `Umar kept on urging me to accept his proposal till Allāh opened my chest for it and I began to realize the good in the idea which `Umar had realized." Then Abū Bakr said (to me). 'You are a wise young man and we do not have any suspicion about you, and you used to write the Divine Inspiration for Allāh's Messenger (). So you should search for (the fragmentary scripts of) the Qur'ān and collect it in one book." By Allāh If they had ordered me to shift one of the mountains, it would not have been heavier for me than this ordering me to collect the Qur'ān. Then I said to Abū Bakr, "How will you do something which Allāh's Messenger () did not do?" Abū Bakr replied, "By Allāh, it is a good project." Abū Bakr kept on urging me to accept his idea until Allah opened my chest for what He had opened the chests of Abū Bakr and `Umar. So I started looking for the Qur'ān and collecting it from (what was written on) palme stalks, thin white stones and also from the men who knew it by heart, till I found the last Verse of Surat at-Tauba (Repentance) with Abī Khuzaima Al-Anṣārī, and I did not find it with anybody other than him. The Verse is: 'Verily there has come unto you an Apostle (Muḥammad) from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty..(till the end of Sūrat-Barāʾah (at-Tauba) (9.128-129). Then the complete manuscripts (copy) of the Qur'ān remained with Abū Bakr till he died, then with `Umar till the end of his life, and then with Ḥafṣah, the daughter of `Umar.

[Text of The Book] 

[3] Chapter: The Collection of the Qur'ān (continued)

  • Ḥadīth 2: Narrated Anas bin Mālik: Ḥudhaifa bin Al-Yamān came to `Uthmān at the time when the people of Shām and the people of Iraq were Waging war to conquer Arminya and Adharbijan. Ḥudhaifa was afraid of their (the people of Shām and Iraq) differences in the recitation of the Qur'ān, so he said to `Uthmān, "O chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book (Qur'ān) as Jews and the Christians did before." So `Uthmān sent a message to Ḥafṣah saying, "Send us the manuscripts of the Qur'ān so that we may compile the Qur'ānic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you." Ḥafṣah sent it to `Uthmān. `Uthmān then ordered Zaid bin Thābit, `Abdullāh bin  Az-Zubair, Sa`īd bin Al-'Āṣ and `AbdurRaḥmān bin Ḥārith bin Hishām to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies. `Uthmān said to the three Quraishī men, "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thābit on any point in the Qur'ān, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, the Qur'an was revealed in their tongue." They did so, and when they had written many copies, `Uthmān returned the original manuscripts to Ḥafṣah. `Uthmān sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Qur'ānic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt.
  • Ḥadīth 3: Zaid bin Thābit added, "A verse from Sūrat Aḥzāb was missed by me when we copied the Qur'ān and I used to hear Allāh's Messenger () reciting it. So we searched for it and found it with Khuza`ima bin Thābit Al-Anṣārī. (That Verse was): 'Among the Believers are men who have been true in their covenant with Allāh.' (33.23)
