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,
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.”
