The Recitation of the People of Madinah is Sunnah

Sa’id bin Mansur reported to us that he heard Malik ibn Anas say:

“The recitation of the people of Madinah is Sunnah.”

He was asked, “The recitation of {Imam} Nafi’?” He replied, “Yes.”

[The Mufti of Egypt] Al-Layth ibn Sa’id said,

“I went on Hajj in 113 and the Imam of the people in recitation in Madinah was Nafi’.”

‘Abdullah ibn Ahmad ibn Hanbal said, “I asked my father, ‘Which recitation do you prefer?’

He replied, “The recitiation of the people of Madina.'” That is natural, and and highest level is the recitation of Nafi’.

It is not strange that the recitiation of someone who saw the Noble Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in a dream in which he was reciting into his mouth, should be a followed Sunnah.

Abu ‘Amr ad-Dani related to us,

“A man among those who learned recitation with Nafi’ said,

“When Nafi’ spoke, the fragrance of musk could be smelt from his mouth. I said to him, ‘Abu ‘Abdullah! Do you use perfume whenever you sit to recite to the people?’

He replied, ‘I do not touch perfume, but I saw in a dream that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was reciting into my mouth and from that moment I have smelt this fragrance from my mouth.'”

It is also not strange that recitation of the one whom the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, breathed? on should be followed.

Al-Musayyib informed us, “It was said to Nafi’, ‘How resplendent your face is and how handsome your physique!’ He replied, ‘How could it not be when the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, breathed on me and I recited the Qur’an (i.e. in the dream).'”
