Islamic Text

Yes, it is soundly narrated in Tabarani and other Hadith collections that Sayidina Anas bin Malik used to gather his family and make Dua upon Khatam of the Holy Quran.

عَنْ ثَابِتٍ، أَنَّ أَنَسَ بْنَ مَالِكٍ، كَانَ إِذَا خَتَمَ الْقُرْآنَ جَمَعَ أَهْلَهُ وَوَلَدَهُ، فَدَعَا لَهُمْ

Thabit narrated that Anas bin Malik (May Allah Most High be pleased with him) used to gather his family and children upon completing (the recitation of) the Quran and make Dua for them. (al-Tabarani, al-Mo’jam al-Kabeer, 674).

In the narration above we see that Sayidina Anas bin Malik used to gather his family and make Dua upon Khatam of the Holy Quran. This narration has sound narrators according to Imam al-Haythami.

وَعَنْ ثَابِتٍ أَنَّ أَنَسَ بْنَ مَالِكٍ كَانَ إِذَا خَتَمَ الْقُرْآنَ جَمَعَ أَهْلَهُ وَوَلَدَهُ فَدَعَا لَهُمْ. رَوَاهُ الطَّبَرَانِيُّ، وَرِجَالُهُ ثِقَاتٌ. (مجمع الزوائد ومنبع الفوائد)

From Thabit that Anas bin Malik (May Allah Most High be pleased with him) used to gather his family and children upon completing (the recitation of) the Quran and make Dua for them. (Imam) al-Tabarani narrated it, and the narrators in the chain are sound. (Imam al-Haythami, Majma al-Zawaid).

This Hadith is also narrated by Imam al-Darimi (3517) with slightly variant wording. Also by Imam al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Iman (1907), although it is abridged.

It is important to recognise that the onus is upon people narrating Hadith to reference them correctly. Some ignorant people respond to questions regarding Hadith they narrate by putting the onus on the questioner to prove that it is not a sound Hadith. This contradicts the way of the Sahabah (May Allah Most High be pleased with them), who used to ask people to prove anything they said about the Deen.

And Allah (Most High) Knows Best.
