March 21, 2013

مَنْ قَرَأَحَرْفًامِنْ كِتَابِ اللهِ فَلَهُ بِهِ حَسَنَةٌ ،

وَالحَسَنَةُبِعَشْرِأَمْثَالِهَا ،

لا أَقُوْلُ{ ألم} حَرْفٌ ،

وَلَكِنْ أَلِفٌ حَرْفٌ ، ولَامٌ حَرْفٌ ، وَمِيْمٌ حَرْفٌ

Abdullah ibn Mas’ood – radiallahu anhu –  narrated that the Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – said (translated):

Whoever recites a word1 from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward, and the likes of ten rewards with it.  I don’t say that “Alif Laam Meem” is a word. Rather, Alif is a word, Laam is a word, and Meem is a word.”

Declared authentic by Shaikh Albanee in Saheeh at Targheeb
