- Hadith of Sahi - Bukhari
The Prophet said to his companions, "Is it difficult for any of you to recite one third of the Qur'an in one night?"

Allah Apostle replied: " Allah (the) One, the Self-Sufficient Master Whom all creatures need.' (Surat Al-Ikhlas 112.1--to the End) is equal to one third of the Qur'an."
