Question

I have to get one clarification regarding the authenticity one Hadeeth which is as follows:
If a person learn one verse of Quran (with understanding) it is better than offering 100 Raka'h Salah - Ibn Maajah Chapter 16:219. Expecting an early response from your end.

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 is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

 

Abu-Tharr  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him narrated that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "O Abu-Tharr, if you go to the mosque and learn a verse from the Book of Allaah, it would be better for you than performing one hundred Rak’as [units of prayer]."  [Ibn Maajah] This narration is considered by Al-Albaani may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him as weak as he mentioned in many of his books. Moreover, Al-Bawsiri may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said: 'The chain of narrators in this narration is weak.'

Allaah Knows best.
