  • Reference For Zaid Bin Thabit'S Presence During The Final Recitation Of Quran

    Posted by Aayan Zubairi on April 13, 2023 at 7:39 am


    I heard Ghamidi sahab mentioning how Syedna Zaid ibn Thabit was a witness to The Prophet’s final recension of The Quran with Gabriel which came to be known as the Al Ardah al Akhirah and was written down by Zaid during this recension.

    Could someone please provide me with a reference for this? I believe it was somewhere in Musnad Ahmad.

      Any chance of sharing the text of the narration in Arabic so I can get the systematic numbering for it?

    I thought this is relevant

    عن الأعمش، عن أبي ظبيان، عن ابن عباس [وفي رواية زائدة والتيمي: قال لنا ابن عباس، وتابعهما شريك]؛ قال: أي القراءتين تعدون أول؟ قال: قلنا: قراءة عبد الله، أزاد جرير: قال: قراءتنا القراءة الأولى، وقراءة عبد الله القراءة الأخيرة]؛ فقال: إن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- كان يعرض عليه القرآن في كل رمضان مرة، إلا العام الذي قبض فيه فإنه عرض عليه مرتين، فحضره عبد الله بن مسعود فشهد ما نسخ منه وما بدل.

    From Al-A’mash, from Abu Thabyan, from Ibn Abbas [and in an additional narration by Al-Zaidiyyah and Al-Taymiyyah: Ibn Abbas said to us, and Shurayh followed them], he said: “Which of the two recitations do you consider first?” We said: “Abdullah’s recitation.” Jareer added: “Our recitation is the first recitation, and Abdullah’s recitation is the last recitation.” He then said: “The Messenger of Allah -peace be upon him- used to review the Quran with him once every Ramadan, except in the year he passed away, in which it was reviewed with him twice. Abdullah ibn Mas’ood attended it and witnessed what was abrogated and what was altered.”

    This narration was reported by Sa’id bin Mansur in his Sunan (58), Ibn Sa’d in his Tabaqat (2/342), Ibn Abi Shaybah (6/301/28854), Ahmad (1/362/3422), Al-Bukhari in Khalq Af’ al-Ibad (382), Al-Nasa’i in Al-Kubra (7/247/7940) and (7/353/8201), Abu Ya’la (4/435/2562), Al-Dulabi in Al-Kunna (1/301/527), Al-Tahawi in Sharh al-Ma’ani (1/356), and in Sharh al-Mushkil (1/264/286), (8/138/3120), (3/1131/2439), and (14/229/5590), Ibn al-A’rabi in Al-Mu’jam (3/1131/2439), Ja’far al-Mustaghfiri in Fada’il al-Quran (436), Ibn Hazm in Al-Ihkam (6/113), Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh Dimashq (33/140), and Al-Dayya’ in Al-Mukhtara (9/542/533) and (9/543/534). [Al-Tuhfah (4/279/5854), Al-Ittihaf (7/44/7295) and (7/47/7303), and Al-Musnad Al-Musannaf (13/236/6365)].

    ورواه إسرائيل بن يونس [ثقة]؛ عن إبراهيم بن مهاجر [البجلي: ليس به بأس. تقدمت ترجمته قريبا عند حديث حذيفة، في الشواهد]، عن مجاهد، عن ابن عباس؟ أنه قال لأصحابه: أي القراءتين ترون آخرا؟ قالوا: قراءة زيد، قال: إن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- يعرض القرآن على جبريل في كل سنة، فلما كانت السنة التي قبض فيها عرضه عليه مرتين، فشهده ابن مسعود، فكانت قراءة عبد الله آخرا.

    And it was narrated by Israel ibn Yunus [trustworthy]; from Ibrahim ibn Muhajir [Al-Bajali: there is no harm in him, his biography was mentioned recently in the hadith of Hudhayfah in Al-Shawahid]; from Mujahid, from Ibn Abbas that he said to his companions: “Which of the two recitations do you see as the last?” They said, “The recitation of Zaid.” He said, “Indeed, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to present the Quran to Jibril every year, and when the year in which he passed away came, he presented it to him twice. Ibn Mas’ud witnessed it, so the recitation of Abdullah (Ibn Mas’ud) was the last.”

    It was reported by Ahmad (1/275 and 325), Al-Bazzar (11/181/4923), Al-Tahawi in his explanation of Al-Mushkil (1/264/287) and (8/139/3122), and Al-Hakim (2/230).

    كانت قراءة أبى بكر وَعمر و عثمان و زيد بن ثابت و المهاجرين وَالأنصار وَاحدة كانوا بقرءون القراءة العامة وَهى القراءة التى قرأها رسولالله صلي الله عليه وسلم على جبريل مرتين في العام الذى قبض فيه وكان زيد قد شهد العرْضَة الأخيرة وَكان يقرئ الناس بها حتى مات

    The readings of Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Zaid bin Thabit, the Muhajireen, and the Ansar were all the same. They all used the common reading, which was the one that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) recited to Jibreel twice a year. Zaid witnessed the final presentation and he used to teach people this reading until he died.

    Al Baghawi in Sharh ul Sunnah (4/525) and Al Suyuti in Al Itqan (1/177).
