The Musalsal of Surat al-Saff
by S. Fakhruddin Owaisi


As-Salam Alaykum

I had written down the sanad for the Hadith al-Musalsal bi-Qira'at Surat al-Saff, for a friend. I thought I will share it with the brothers on this site as well.

kor8b
It is narrated that the blessed Prophet (S.A.W.) recited the Surah al-Saff immediately after its revelation to those of his noble Companions who were around him at the time.

Later on in life, one of those Companions, Sayyidina Abd-Allah bin Salam, recited the same Surah to his students and they recited it to their students, and this practice continued till our times. The sanad I produce here is that of Muhaddith al-Haramayn al-Sayyid Muhammad Alawi al-Maliki.

Here is the Sanad for that continuous recital from one generation to another:
