 أرحم أمتي بأمتي أبو بكر ، وأشدهم في أمر الله عمر ، وأصدقهم حياء عثمان ، وأقرؤهم لكتاب الله أبي بن كعب ، وأفرضهم زيد بن ثابت ، وأعلمهم بالحلال والحرام معاذ بن جبل ، ولكل أمة أمين ، وأمين هذه الأمة أبو عبيدة بن الجراح

Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “… The most read of the book in my Ummah is Ubay Ibn K’ab (رضي الله عنه)…”

[Sunah Tirmidhi and he classified it hasan sahih]

In another narration, The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said to him (Ubay (رضي الله عنه)), ” Allah has commanded me to recite to you the Qur’ an.”

He (رضي الله عنه) asked,” Did He mention me to you by my name? ” He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “Yes.” So, his (رضي الله عنه) eyes became moist.

[Bukhari and Muslim]
