Question

Which Surah is Called (sanam al-Quran )?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

Ibn Hibbaan reported from Sahl ibn Sa’d that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "Everything has a peak (Sanam) and the peak (Summit) of the Quran is Chapter Al Baqarah [Quran 2]"

The same Hadeeth was also reported by At-Tirmithi, Ad-Daarimi, Al-Haakim, At-Tabaraani and Al-Bayhaqi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them.

Allaah Knows best.
