There seems to be a feeling that saying Sadaqallahul Azeem is a Biddah.

There are many Fatwa's and many discussions regarding this and the simple answer is "No, its not a Biddah unless you consider it to be a Sunnah"

 

Question

I often hear that saying “Sadaqa Allaah al-‘Azeem (Allaah Almighty has spoken the truth)” after reading Qur’aan is bid’ah. Some people told me that it is permissible and they quoted as evidence the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):
“Say (O Muhammad): “Allaah has spoken the truth; follow the religion of Ibraaheem (Abraham) Haneefa (Islamic Monotheism, i.e. he used to worship Allaah Alone)” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:95]
Some educated people told me that when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) wanted to stop someone who was reading Qur’aan he said, “Enough” and he did not say “Sadaqa Allaahu al-‘Azeem.” My question is: is it permissible to say “Sadaqa Allaahu al-‘Azeem” when one stops reading Qur’aan? Could you please explain this to me?


 

 Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

I do not know of any basis for the people’s habit of saying “Sadaqa Allaahu al-‘Azeem” when they finish reading Qur’aan, so it should not be taken as a habit. Indeed, according to the principles of sharee’ah it is more like bid’ah, if anyone believes that it is Sunnah. So this should not be done and should not be taken as a habit.

With regard to the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say (O Muhammad): ‘Allaah has spoken the truth…’”[Aal ‘Imraan 3:95] –

This is not speaking about this matter. Rather Allaah was commanding him to explain to the people that Allaah had spoken the truth in what He had said in His Books, the Tawraat, etc., and that He had spoken the Truth in all that He had said to His slaves in the Tawraat, the Injeel and all other revealed Books.

And He was speaking the truth in all that He said to His slaves in His Book the Qur’aan. But this is not evidence that it is mustahabb to say “Sadaqa Allaah al-‘Azeem” after reading the Qur’aan or after reading some aayahs or a soorah. This was not reported or known from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them). When Ibn Mas’ood recited to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) from the beginning of Soorat al-Nisaa’ until he reached the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“How (will it be) then, when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these people?”[al-Nisaa’ 4:41] –

the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to him, “Enough.” Ibn Mas’ood said: “I turned to him and saw that his eyes were filled with tears”, i.e., he was weeping because of the mention of this great status on the Day of Resurrection which is mentioned in this aayah, where Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “How (will it be) then, when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you” – O Muhammad – “as a witness against these people?” – i.e., against his ummah.

The point is that there is no basis in sharee’ah for adding these words – “sadaqa Allaah al-‘Azeem” – when finishing reading Qur’aan. What is prescribed is not to do this, in accordance with the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them). But if a person does that sometimes, without intending to, it doesn’t matter, for Allaah speaks the truth in all matters, may He be glorified and exalted. But making that a habit every time one reads Qur’aan, as many people do nowadays, has no basis, as stated above.

Kitaab Majmoo’ Fataawa wa Maqaalaat Mutanawwi’ah li Samaahat al-Shaykh al-‘Allaamah ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), vol. 9, p. 342 .
 
 
 
HOWEVER
 
 
 
Question
 
Is saying Sadaqaallahu Al Azim after reciting or quoting from the Qur'an an innovation, and if it is, how was it introduced?


Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

Many people have the habit of ending a recitation from the Qur’aan with the words “Sadaqa Allaahu al-‘Azeem (Almighty Allaah has spoken the truth),” but this has no basis in Islam because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not do it, nor was it the custom of the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them), and it was unknown among the Taabi’een (the generation after the Sahaabah). This custom arose in later times because some reciters would say these words, on the basis of the aayah: “Say: Allaah has spoken the truth” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:95 – interpretation of the meaning], and people liked this. But this istihsaan (being liked) should be rejected, because if this was really something good, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the Sahaabah and the Taabi’een – the salaf or first and best generations of the ummah – would not have neglected to do it.

The aayah “Say: Allaah has spoken the truth” (Aal ‘Imraan 3:95 – interpretation of the meaning) does not mean that these words should be said at the end of any reading or recitation. If that were the case, He would have said, “When you finish reading, say ‘Allaah has spoken the truth,’” just as He said (interpretation of the meaning): “So when you want to recite the Qur’aan, seek refuge with Allaah from Shaytaan (Satan), the outcast (the cursed one).”

al-Nahl 16:98

The aayah which the innovators use to support their practice of saying “Sadaqa Allaah” after reciting Qur’aan was actually revealed in the context of confirming what was said about how all food had been lawful to Bani Isra’eel except what Isra’eel had made unlawful for himself. Allaah said (interpretation of the meaning): “… Say (O Muhammad): ‘Bring here the Tawraat (Torah) and recite it, if you are truthful.’ Then, after that, whosoever shall invent a lie against Allaah, such shall indeed be the zaalimoon (disbelievers). Say (O Muhammad), ‘Allaah has spoken the truth; follow the religion of Ibraaheem (Islamic monotheism, i.e., he used to worship Allaah alone), and he was not of al-mushrikeen (polytheists).”

Aal ‘Imraan 3:93-95

If this aayah meant that these words should be said after reciting from the Qur’aan, the first one to know and do this would have been the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Because this is not the case, we know that this is not what was meant.

In conclusion, therefore, saying “Sadaqa Allaahu al-‘Azeem” after reciting Qur’aan is an innovation, and the Muslim should not say it.

But believing that Allaah has spoken the truth is obligatory, and whoever disbelieves or doubts the truth of what Allaah has said is a kaafir who is outside of the pale of Islam. We seek refuge with Allaah from that.

If a person says “Allaah has spoken the truth” on certain occasions, such as when something He has foretold comes to pass, affirming the truth of what He has said, then this is permissible, because something similar has been reported in the Sunnah. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was giving a speech, and al-Hasan and al-Husayn came along, so he came down from the minbar, picked them up and put them in from of him, then he said: “Indeed Allaah has spoken the truth: ‘Your wealth and your children are only a trial…’

al-Taghaabun 64:15 – interpretation of the meaning
.”

(Izaalat al-sitaar ‘an al-jawaab al-mukhtaar by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 79-80).

Question

Can u give me the law on saying sadaq Allah Adheim after the recitation of quran .And if i say it (tasdeeqan ) is it a bidah because the rasool saws did not do it can u please provide the daleel .Jazak Allah khair.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh  

The words Sadaqallahul Azim mean “Allah The Great has spoken the truth”. In essence this is an affirmation to the verses of the Qur’an which has been recited. It is also recited as etiquette and to make the listeners aware that the recitation has now terminated.

It may not be expressly mentioned in the Ahadeeth that it was the habit of the prophet (sallalahu alaihi wasallam) or the Sahabah (radiyallahu anhum) to read Saadqallahul Azim after reciting Qur’an, but it had been the practice of many pious predecessors to use such words after quoting a verse of the Qur’an. None of them has condemned this or termed it as a Bida’h.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Wassalamu Alaykum

SAYING SADAQALLAHUL ‘AZIM AFTER QURAN RECITAL

Question

Is there any proof for reciting ‘Sadaqallahul Azim’ after reciting the Quran?

 

 

Answer

I have not come across any such clear proof. Despite this, there will be no harm in reciting it as long as one does not regard it to be binding or Sunnah.

This is actually a response and expression of one’s belief in the Quran being the true word of Allah. There is undoubtedly no harm in such expressions.

 

Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) while reciting Quran in [nafl] salah even, would utter words in response to the words being recited:

Sayyiduna Hudhayfah (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that he offered tahajjud salah behind Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) one night. He says: ‘…Whenever Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)  passed a verse that mentioned a tasbih, he (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) would recite a tasbih. When he (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) passed a spot that required one to beg from Allah, he begged, and when he passed a verse that required one to seek protection [of Allah] he would do so.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1811)

 

In this narration we are thought to respond to the verses that we recite, based on their specific meaning during the recital.

Thus, for one to respond to the recital in general after the recital should not be considered any different.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
