Dua done by one of our teachers on a weekly basis after the completion of the recitation of the Qur’an. This is a free event for all to participate in the dua.
The Blessing of Attending the Completion of the Reading of the Qur’an
The Companions gave a high importance to completing the reading of the Qur’an. They also, in particular, would pay attention to the end of the reading and the recommended act of supplication made thereafter.
This is authentically narrated regarding Anas ibn Malik [may Allah be pleased with him], the illustrious Companion of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him).
Imam al-Darimi narrates that, “Anas ibn Malik, when he would complete a reading of the Qu’ran, would gather his family and his children and supplicate for them.” [al-Darimi, al-Sunan]
Imam al-Darimi also relates that Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with father and son) used to appoint a man to watch over everyone reciting the Qur’an in the masjid, so that if someone was near completion, the man would inform Ibn Abbas, and Ibn Abbas and those in his company would go to attend the completion. [ibid]
Prayers Are Accepted at the Completion of a Reading of the Qur’an
Imam al-Tabarani narrates that the Prophet [Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him] is reported to have said, “Whosoever prays an obligatory prayer, has an accepted supplication. And whosoever completes a reading of the Quran, has an accepted supplication.” [ibid]
Imam al-Darimi also authentically relates that Mujahid, an Imam in the Qur’anic sciences amongst the Followers (Tabi’een) of the Companions, once sent for someone, and when they arrived, he told them, “I only called you because we wanted to complete a reading of the Qur’an, and it has reached us that the supplication is accepted after a completed reading of the Quran.” Then he said, “So supplicate, all of you, with [many] supplications.” [al-Darimi, al-Sunan]
Hence, this shows how much importance our righteous predecessors placed on gathering people to listen to the Qur’an, even just to be present for the end of the recital. Also, how not just the reciter’s supplication, but even the listeners’ supplications, were also held to be accepted.
