"Convey from me even a single verse."

the explanation of the hadeeth where the prophet , said: "convey from me even a single verse."

this sentence is part of an authentic hadeeth (narration) by al-bukhaari  may allaah have mercy upon him and other narrators. it means that the muslim is required to convey whatever he receives from the quran and sunnah (prophetic tradition) to the people who are not aware of it. al-mubaarakfoori  may allaah have mercy upon him said, "it means: convey from me even if it is a short verse from the quran, and the quran was conveyed through the messenger of allaah , from allaah the almighty. this implies that hadeeths should be conveyed as well."

some scholars said that the word "verse" in the hadeeth refers to meaningful words, such as: "whoever keeps silent will be saved," and "the essence of religion is to offer advice." in that way, it means that "convey from me hadeeths even if they are few."

however, the first opinion is the predominant one, as stated by imaam al-mubaarakfoori  may allaah have mercy upon him.
