“Then Ubayy burst into tears.”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Narrated Anas bin Malik RA:

Allah’s Prophet salalahu ‘alayhi wasalam said to Ubayy bin Ka’b, “Allah has ordered me to recite Quran to you.”

Ubayy said, “Did Allah mention me by name to you?”

The Prophet said, “Yes.”

Ubayy said, “Have I been mentioned by the Lord of the Worlds?”

The Prophet said, “Yes.”

Then Ubayy burst into tears.

[Sahih al Bukhari, Book #60; Hadith #485]


Narrated Masruq:

‘Abdullah bin Masud was mentioned before Abdullah bin ‘Amr who said, “That is a man I still love, as I heard the Prophet saying ‘Learn the recitation of Quran from four from ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud –he started with him–Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hudaifa, Mu’adh bin Jabal and Ubayy bin Ka’b.”

[Sahih al Bukhari, Book #58; Hadith #153]


Narrated Qatada:

Anas said,”The Quran was collected in the lifetime of the Prophet by four (men), all of whom were from the Ansar: Ubayy, Muadh bin Jabal, Abu Zaid and Zaid bin Thabit.” I asked Anas, “Who is Abu Zaid?” He said, “One of my uncles.”

[Sahih al Bukhari, Book #58; Hadith #155]
