One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamu-alaikum Dear Brother,

 

I have heard that each Hafiz of the Holy Qur`an (i.e. those who memorize the whole Qur`an) can take ten people of their choice with them to Jannat. Is it true?

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:


 

Memorize quran hafiz and intercession

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2141 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "If anyone recites the Qur'an, learns it by heart, declares what is lawful in it to be lawful and what is unlawful in it to be unlawful, Allah will bring him into Paradise and make him the intercessor for ten of his family all of whom have deserved Hell."

 

At-Tirmidhi who has recorded the above quoted tradition himself declared that this narration is an absolutely gharib (strange) tradition, and that Hafs ibn Sulayman, one of the chain of transmitters of this narration is not at all reliable, but was known and declared to be a weak transmitter.

 

The absolute majority of the scholars and jurists of ahaadeeth have not accepted the above specific narration quoted in at-Tirmidhi as authentic, and the scholars along with at-Tirmidhi himself have classified the specific narration as gharib or strange, and thus unacceptable. And Allah Alone Knows Best.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
