The Prophet Muhammad,  sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, received the revelation of the Quran from Jibreel (Gabriel), may Allah exalt his mention, and conveyed it to people as it was revealed to him from His Lord. He urged his companions, may Allah be pleased with them, to learn and memorize it. A number of companions competed in memorizing and learning it, such as Ubayy Ibn K`ab, `Abdullaah Ibn Mas`ood, Zayd Ibn Thaabit and Mu'aath Ibn Jabal, may Allah be pleased with them. The Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, was proud of them and said:

“Learn the recitation of Qur'an from four: `Abdullaah Ibn Mas`ood, Saalim, the freed slave of Abu Huthayfah, Mu`aath Ibn Jabal and Ubayy Ibn Ka`b.”  [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]
