Virtues of Certain Surahs- 1

Virtues of Certain Surahs- 1

Hafiz Aziz

Every word revealed in the holy Quran is important to read in order to purify our souls and strengthen our faiths. Indeed this great revelation has many depths and mysteries that have yet to be discovered. Those who frequently read Quran can attest to the fact that it is an unending source of information and a bottomless well of knowledge and guidance. It should be noted, that aside from the benefits of guidance towards divine truth, some verses and chapters of the holy Quran also have hidden benefits.

Surah al-Fatihah (#1): Without this surah even the daily prayers are incomplete. It is indeed a great treasure that has been given to us by Allah SWT. It is narrated that, “While Angel Jibril was with the Prophet PBUH he heard a noise from above. Jibril lifted his sight to the sky and said: ‘This is a door in the Heavens being opened, and it has never been opened before now.’ An Angel descended from that door and came to the Prophet PBUH and said: “Receive the glad tidings of two lights that you have been given, which no other Prophet before you was given: the Opening of the Book (Al Fatiha), and the last verses of ‘surah al-Baqarah.’ You will not read a letter of them except that you will gain its benefit.” [Muslim]. This Surah is also recited to cure one from illness.

Surah al-Ikhlas (#112): It is a short surah with a very powerful message; it proclaims the Oneness (Tawhid) and Absolute nature of Divine Essence. Increase in the recitation of this surah is a means of attaining the love of Allah SWT and entering paradise. The constant recitation of this surah increases the presence of the angels at the time of death. Whoever recites this surah on the graves of believing men\women earns great rewards. Reciting this Surah has the merit equal to reciting one-third of the Quran. Reciting this surah 3 times is like having recited the whole Quran once in its entirety. Prophet PBUH said: “Whoever recites this Surah 10 times a day, Allah SWT will build for him\her a house in Paradise.” [Bukhari]. - A man said to the Prophet PBUH, “I really love this surah”. He PBUH replied, ‘And your love for it will enable you to enter paradise.” [Bukhari] - Aishah RA narrated, “Whenever Prophet PBUH went to bed, he used to recite surah Ikhlas, along with surah ‘Falaq’ and surah ‘An Nas’, and then blow on his palms and pass them over his face and those body parts that his hands could reach. And when he used to fall ill, he used to order me to do like that for him.” [Bukhari]

Surah al-Falaq and al-Naas (#113-114): It is reported that these surah's were revealed when Prophet PBUH had black magic casted upon him by a Kafer in Madinah. These two surahs are one of the most powerful tools to combat and prevent evil eye, black magic and similar harms. Prophet PBUH said "Recite Surah al-Ikhlas, al-Falaq and an-Naas three times in the morning and evening. They will suffice you from everything” [Tirmidi].

    أَقُول قَوْلِي هَذَا ،  وَأَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ لِيَ وَلَكُمْ ولِسَائِر الْمُسْلِمِي ، فَاسْتَغْفِرُوه ،  إِنَهُ هُوَ الْغَفُور الرّحِيمُ.

Please sit down for a moment

بِسْمِ اللّهِ ،  والْحَمْدُ ِلّهِ ،  والصّلَاةُ والسّلَامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللّهِ ،  صَلّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَم

The importance of reciting and contemplating on every verse of the Holy Quran cannot be stressed enough. We pray to Allah SWT to make our hearts attached to the Holy Quran and enable us to understand its teachings and guidance and enlist us from those who always recite it – Ameen.

عِبَادَ اللّهِ ،   إنّ اللّهَ يَأْمُر بِالْعَدْلِ والْإِحْسَانِ وإيْتَاءِ ذِي الْقُرْبَى ويَنْهَى عَنِ الفَحْشَاءِ والْمُنْكَرِ والْبَغِي  ،  يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلّكُمْ تَذَكّرُونَ  .   اُذْكُرُوا الَ الْعَظِيمَ  يَذْكُرْكُمْ واشْكُروهُ  يَزِدْكُمْ واسْتَغْفِرُوه يَغْفِرْ لكُمْ واتّقُوهُ  يَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ مِنْ أَمْرِكُمْ مَخْرَجًا.         وَأَقِم الصّلَاة

إنَّ الْحَمْدَ لِلهِ نَحْمَدُهُ وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ  ،   وَنَعُوذُ بِاللهِ مِنْ شُرُورِ أَنْفُسِنَا وَمِنْ سَيِّئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنَا ،  مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللهُ فَلاَ مُضِلَّ لَهُ ،  وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلاَ هَادِىَ لَهُ،وَأَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ 

اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ ،  وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنْتُمْ



يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ نَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا


يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُو اللَّهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلاً سَدِيدًا  *  يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَنْ يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا

                اما بعد:
                         إنَّ أَصْدَقَ اْلحَدْيثِ كِتَابُ اللّهِ وَأَحْسَنَ الْهَدْيِ هَدْيُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَشَرُّ الْأُمُوْرِ مُحدَثَاتُها وَكُلُّ مُحْدَثَةٍ بِدْعَةٌ وكُلُّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلَالَةٌ وكُلُّ ضَلَالَةٍ    فِي النَّار
