195 Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah.

196 i.e. You are the Giver of Light to them, and those in them are guided by You.

198 haqq: truth, reality.

199 Bukhaari , Muslim, Abu 'Awaanah, Abu Daawood, Ibn Nasr & Daarimi.

200 Although that clearly does not rule out using them in the obligatory prayers also, except for the imaam, so that he does not prolong the prayer for the followers.

201 Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah.

202 Ahmad, Ibn Abi Shaibah (12/119/2), Abu Daawood & Tabaraani in Mu'jam al-Awsat (62/2) with one isnaad saheeh, and another hasan.

203 Tayaalisi & Abu Daawood with a saheeh isnaad.

204 The three 'Arabic words hamz, nafkh, and nafth, were interpreted such by the narrator; all three interpretations are also traced back to the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) with a saheeh mursal isnaad. By "poetry" here is meant the vain kind, for the Prophet (on whom be peace and blessings) said: "Truly, some poetry is wisdom" (Bukhaari ).

205 Abu Daawood, Ibn Maajah, Daaraqutni & Haakim who, along with Ibn Hibbaan and Dhahabi, declared it saheeh. It is given along with the next one in Irwaa' al-Ghaleel (342).

206 Abu Daawood & Tirmidhi with a hasan isnaad. Ahmad endorsed it (Masaa'il of Ibn Haani 1/50).

207 Bukhaari , Muslim, Abu 'Awaanah, Tahaawi & Ahmad.

208 Abu Daawood & Sahmi (64 -65); Haakim declared it saheeh and Dhahabi agreed. It is given in Irwaa' (343). Abu 'Amr ad-Daani transmitted it al-Muktafaa (5/2) and said: "This hadeeth has many routes, and it is what is depended upon in this regard, and several of the past imaams and reciters preferred to stop at every verse, even if some were connected (in meaning) to the one after." I say: This is a sunnah which has been neglected by the majority of the reciters of this age, let alone others.

209 Tammaam ar-Raazi in al-Fawaa'id, Ibn Abi Dawood in al-Masaahif (7/2), Abu Nu'aim in Akhbaar Isbahaan (1/104) & Haakim who declared it saheeh and Dhahabi agreed. Both of these recitations are mutawaatir.
