Revive a Sunnah: Read Some Ayat Audibly in Dhuhr and Asr Salah

Abdullah ibn Abu Qatada said: “My father told us the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) used to recite Umm Al-Quran and two soorahs in the first two Rak’ah of Dhuhr and Asr. Sometimes he would make us hear a verse and he used to make the first Rak’ah lengthy.”

Collected by Bukhari 759 and Muslim 451

Al-Bara’ said: “We used to pray Dhuhr behind the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and we heard some of the verses from Surah Luqman and Dhariyat.”

Collected by An-Nasa’I 972 . Shaykh Muhammad Adam Al-Ethiopee (may Allah preserve him) graded this Hadeeth as being ” Saheeh Lee Ghayreehee” 


Shaykh Muhammad Adam Al-Ethiopee (may Allah preserve him) said: The hadeeth in this section proves its permissible to read some verses aloud during Dhuhr and Asr ; and it isn’t disliked to read both silently and aloud now and again. Furthermore this hadeeth shows its recommended to read Luqman and Dhariyat in Dhuhr prayer
[Sharh Sunnan An-Nisa’ vol 12 page 234]

 Ibn Hajr Al-Asqalanee (May Allah have mercy on him) said: ” Some ulema hold that if the Imam intentionally or unintentionally reads some verses audibly during Dhuhr and Asr, he should make the prostration for forgetfulness. However we don’t hold this opinion. There is no harm in reciting some verses audibly during those prayers. In fact it’s Sunnah. [ Fathul Bari 3/217]

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih Al-Uthaymeen (may Allah rest him in Jannah) said about the words “Sometimes he would make us hear a verse…” applies to Dhuhr and Asr. Sometimes he would recite a verse or so aloud in the silent prayers. Perhaps he (peace and blessings be upon him) would do this to liven up the people behind him, himself, or inform them that he’s reading Quran and isn’t just standing silently.

Occasionally reading some verses audibly during Dhuhr and Asr is Sunnah [Sharh Saheeh Muslim]

Qadee ‘Iyaad (may Allah have mercy on him) said: ” This hadeeth proves there is no harm in reading some verses aloud in the silent prayers. [Sharh Saheeh Muslim for the above hadeeth]
