Khatm Quran


Assalaamu ‘alaikum respected Shaykh,

Can you please tell me if the following is a Hadith sahih and if so would you know the chain of transmission or in which book it may be found:

“When a Muslim completes a khatim of the Holy Qur’an, an Angel kisses them on the forehead.”

I found some reports that it is da’eef and others that it is not a Hadith at all.

Jazak Allah khair,

Kindest salams,


Alaykum Salam,

I could not find it.

There is the Prophetic report from `Abd Allah b. `Amr b. al-`As in Daylami’s Musnad al-Firdaws,

إذا ختم العبد القرآن، صلى عليه عند ختمه، ستون ألف ملك

“When the servant makes a khatm of the Qur’an, 60,000 angels invoke blessings on them at the time of the khatm.”

There is also, in al-Darimi’s Sunan,

من قرأ القرآن ثم دعا أمَّن على دعائه أربعة آلاف ملك.

“Whoever reads the Qur’an then supplicates, 4,000 angels say Amin to their du`a.”
