• for • the • companions • of • the • Qur’aan •

It was narrated that Buraydah (Radi Allaahu ‘anhu) said: I heard the Prophet (Sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) say:

‘The Qur’aan will meet its companion on Yowm Al-Qiyaamah when his grave is opened for him, in the form of a pale man. It will say to him, ‘Do you recognize me?’ He will say: ‘I do not recognize you.’ It will say: ‘I am your companion the Qur’aan, who kept you thirsty on hot days and kept you awake at night. Every merchant benefits from his business and today you will benefit from your good deeds.’ He will be given dominion in his right hand and eternity in his left, and there will be placed on his head a crown of dignity, and his parents will be clothed with priceless garments the like of which have never been seen in this world. They will say: ‘Why have we been clothed with this?’ It will be said: ‘Because your son used to recite Qur’aan.’ Then it will be said to him: Recite and ascend in the degrees of Jannah,’ and he will continue to ascend so long as he recites, either at a fast pace or a slow pace.’

Narrated by Ahmad in Al-Musnad (#394) and Ibn Maajah in As-Sunan (#3781); classed as hasan by Al-Busayri in Az-Zawaa’id and by Al-Albaani in As-Silsilah As-Saheehah (#2829).

As-Suyooti said in his commentary on the hadeeth (2/1242):

In the form of a pale man‘. This is the one whose color has changed. It is as if he comes in this form so as to resemble his companion in this world, or to draw attention to the fact that just as his color changed in this world because of staying up at night to read Qur’aan, the Qur’aan will appear in a similar form because of its striving on Yawm Al-Qiyaamah until its companion attains the ultimate goal in Al- Aakhirah.”
