What is the ruling on the reader of the Qur’an at the end of his recitation saying: “sodaqo llohul adheem”?
Question Number: 2163

I often hear that saying the word “sodaqo llohul adheem” at the end of recitation of the Qur’an is Bid’ah, and some people told me that it is permissible and cited as evidence the saying of Allah the almighty:
“Say ‘sodaqo llohul adheem’ (Allah has spoken the truth) so, follow the upright cult of Ibraheem…”
[Imran aayah 95]
And I was told by some intellectuals that: The Prophet peace be upon him if he wanted to stop the reader he says “hasbuk” (Sufficient) and does not say: “sodaqo llohul adheem”.
My question is: is the statement “sodaqo llohul adheem” permissible when you finish reading the Quran? I kindly request that you answer this in detail.
Questioner: abu_darda2e

My brother the questioner: The words: “sodaqo llohul adheem”, or: “sodaqo lloh” in general are permissible as Dhikr or praising Allah, and there is nothing wrong in it Allah says:
“Say ‘sodaqo llohul adheem’ (Allah has spoken the truth) so, follow the upright cult of Ibraheem…”
[Imran aayah 95]
He also said: (who is more truthful in words than Allah?) this is an issue, commitment to it and maintaining that after you finish reading the Quran is another issue, sticking to the words: “sodaqo llohul adheem” is an innovation.
It is not authentically reported from the Prophet peace be upon him that he understood these aayaat and others as understood by some contemporaries in their citing of it as evidence for the commitment to saying the words: ‘sodaqo llohul adheem’ When they finish from reading the Qur’an.
And Sheikh Bakr Abu Zaid has listed it among innovations in his book: “Bid’atul Quraai, alqadeemah wal muaasirah”, he said about it:
“yet there is not a single traceable evidence for this Dhikr, and what was mentioned by some contemporaries that there is in “aljaamiu li shuabil eemaan ” by Bayhaqi [ 5/ 31, 45, 49] what can serve as evidence for it is pure imagination, we did not and we have not seen anyone who mentioned it as legislated from among the reputable scholars or the well known Imams, therefore, sticking to the words ‘sodaqo llohul adheem’ after reading the Qur’an was innovated and has no evidence, it is a newly invented issue, and all inventions are Bid’ah…”
[p.10].

And Allah knows best.
