Day 25: The Greatest Ayaah in the Qur’aa

From Ubayy bin Ka’ab who said the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said:

” يَا أَبَا الْمُنْذِرِ، أَتَدْرِي أَيُّ آيَةٍ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ مَعَكَ أَعْظَمُ ؟ “

‘O Abal Mundhir, do you know which Ayaah in the Book of Allaah is the greatest, according to you?

I answered: Allaah and His Messenger know best.

يَا أَبَا الْمُنْذِرِ، أَتَدْرِي أَيُّ آيَةٍ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ مَعَكَ أَعْظَمُ ؟

‘O Abal Mundhir, do you know which Ayaah in the Book of Allaah is the greatest, according to you’

I said:

{ اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ }

《none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. 》 [2:255]

Abul Mundhir said: The Messenger struck me on my chest and said:

وَاللَّهِ، لِيَهْنِكَ الْعِلْمُ أَبَا الْمُنْذِرِ

‘I swear by Allaah, may knowledge congratulate you Abal Mundhir.

[Saheeh Muslim]
