THE BENEFITS OF RECTING SURAH YASIN (CHAPTER 36)


10009287_645326458838466_1819925554_nIt is commonly known that Surah Yaseen is the “heart” of the Quran. Why is it known as the heart of the Quran? In our bodies, the heart is considered to be the most important organ. It supplies the entire body with blood to keep us functioning. Without the heart, the body cannot live. It is to emphasize the great importance of Surah Yaseen that it is called the “heart” of the Quran.

Therefore, reading Surah Yaseen comes with many benefits which true believers must not miss out on.

1. Hazrat Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) as saying, “Everything has a heart and the heart of the Holy Qur’aan is Yaseen. Allah Ta’ala will record anyone who recites Yaseen as having recited the Holy Qur’aan ten times.” (Tirmidhi, Darimee)

2. Hazrat Ata ibn Abu Rabah (may Allah be pleased with him) told of hearing that Allah Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “If anyone recites Yaseen at the beginning of the day, his needs will be fulfilled.” (Darimee)

3. Hazrat Maqil ibn Yasaar Muzani (may Allha be pleased with him) reported the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) as saying, “If anyone recites Yaseen for Allah’s pleasure, his past sins will be forgiven; so recite it on those who are dying.” (Baihaqi)

4. Hazrat Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) as saying, “Whoever goes to the graveyard and reads Surah Yaseen Allah Ta’ala gives them (the grave dwellers) ease that day, and the reciter receives spiritual blessings equivalent to the amount of letters of Surah Yaseen.” (Qurtubi)

5. Hazrat Maqil ibn Yasaar (May Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) has said, “Recite Surah Yaseen on those who are dying.” (Abu Dawood)

6. Hazrat Ummud Darda (may Allah be pleased with him) reports the Noble Prophet (peace be upon him) saying, “Over no person who is about to die and Surah Yaseen is read upon them but Allah Ta’ala lightens the difficulties of death for him.” (Qurtubi)

7. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) says that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) has said, “Whoever recites Surah Yaseen at night seeking the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, that night he will be forgiven.” (Abu Nuaym)

8. Hazrat Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) reports that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying, “Indeed in the Noble Qur’aan there is a Surah, for its reading will intercede and will be a means of forgiveness for its listener. Listen carefully, it is Surah Yaseen, in the Torah it is called Muimmah.”

It was enquired, “O’ Messenger of Allah, what is Muimmah?”

Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam replied, “It contains for its reader the benefits of this world, it removes from him the dread of the next life, and it is called Dafiah and Qadhiyah.”

Again it was enquired, “How is this Surah Dafiah and Qadhiyah?”

Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam replied, “It takes away from its reader all afflictions and fulfills his need. Whoever recites it, it will be made equal to twenty pilgrimages. Whoever shall listen to it, it will be as thousand dinars, which he has given as charity in the path of Allah. And whoever shall write it and then drink it, it will enter into his heart a thousand cures, a thousand radiant lights, a thousand times more increase in belief, a thousand mercies, a thousand blessings, a thousand times more increase in guidance, and will remove from him all gall and disease.” (Al-Tha’labi, Hakeem Tirmidhi in Nawadrul Usoos)

9. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reports the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying, “Whoever recites Surah Yaseen on the eve of Friday he will be forgiven by morning.” (Qurtubi)

10. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reports the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) saying, “Whoever recites Surah Yaseen at night he will be forgiven in the morning, and whoever recites that Surah Haameen in which Dukhaan is mentioned he will be forgiven in the morning.” (Abu Ya’la)

11. Hazrat Jundub ibn Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) has said, “Whoever reads Yaseen at night seeking the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala he is forgiven.” (Ibn Habbaan)

12. Hazrat Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu reports Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam saying, “My heart’s desire is that Surah Yaseen should be present in the heart of every individual of my Ummah.” (Al-Bazzaar)

13. Yaha ibn Abi Kathir says, “This narration has reached me that whoever shall recite Yaseen at night, he remains content till morning and whoever shall recite it in the morning, he remains content till evening. And that person who has related this to me has also experienced this.” Thalabi said, and Ibn Atiyah has mentioned this and Ibn Atiyah says, “Experience confirms this.” (Qurtubi)

Subhan’Allah…

Spread the knowledge so it will be Sadqa-e-Jaaria (everlasting charity) for you and for me… In’Shaa’Allah.
