Ever felt like you are too sinful to pass the trials and tribulations of this life and the life hereafter? Well, you are not alone. We all feel that at some point in our lives and trust me, having that feeling, that kind of realization in your heart, is also a great blessing. It is like a call from Almighty Allah to wake you up and drive your attention and focus back to the basics of who we are and what we have been sent for into this world.
For all the people who have every felt that way, there is this absolute way out for them- the ultimate solution for all their problems and fears and that is Surah Yaseen. Yes, Surah Yaseen from Quran is literally a gift for those who believe. The recitation of Surah Yaseen has innumerable Fazaayel (benefits/virtues) in both the worlds.
We all know the rewards that have been promised for the recitation of Holy Quran. The one who recites Quran Pak gets 10 virtues against each letter recited. However, among the Holy Quran, there are some Surahs (chapters) that have been classified as superior than others and the recitation of these Surah has far more benefits than the rest of the Quran. Among these is Surah Yaseen. It is said that those who recite Surah Yaseen at the beginning of the day will have a blessed day and all their worldly affairs and worries will be taken care of by Allah Himself. Similarly, those who recite it at night before bed will wake up the next morning as he or she has never committed any sin i.e. all of the sins will be forgiven upon the recitation of Surah Yaseen before going to bed. This confirms from the following Hadees of Hazrat Muhammad SAW.
“Whoever recited Surah Yaseen during the night seeking the approval of Allah, Allah would forgive him.” Ibn Hibban, Darimi 3283 / A, Abu Yala, Tabarani, and Mardawaih.
The recitation of Surah Yaseen is also recommended for the peace of heart, for cure against illnesses and for all kinds of your worries. It also abolishes the fears from your heart and keeps the reciters safe from all kinds of evils. Surah Yaseen is regarded as most recited Surah of Holy Quran. Muslims all over the world recite Surah Yaseen and memorize it with all the faith, respect and belief in their hearts that they will be rewarded for reciting and memorizing it. Our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa SAW has also verified the prestige of Surah Yaseen among other Surahs. We come to know of the rank of Surah Yaseen and the benefits of it from several sayings of the Holy Prophet SAW (i.e. Ahadees).
Our beloved prophet Muhammad PBUH said: “Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yaseen, and I would like it to be in the hearts of all believers in my community.” -Tafsir -al- Sabuni, volume: 2
In this saying of Hazrat Muhammad SAW, he (SAW) has himself expressed his desire that every Muslim memorize Surah Yaseen. That is how important this Surah is and those who will memorize it for the love of the Prophet and to fulfill his desire will be rewarded more than any of us can ever imagine. Moreover, relating Surah Yaseen as the heart of Quran also signals towards its significance. Since heart is the most vital organ of human body that works to supply blood to keep all other organs living, healthy and working. Same is the rank and function of Surah Yaseen. It is the heart of Quran and of our faiths.
Before we end this discussion on Surah Yaseen, let us clarify a very important point. In order to gain all these benefits from Surah Yaseen, the one thing that is essentially needed is the purity of intention and firm faith in the blessing of Allah Almighty. Whenever we recite Surah Yaseen, it should only be done for the sake of Allah Almighty and with the firm belief that the rewards that have been promised against it shall be granted in any case. Those who get impatient are the ones who lack faith in His powers. Make sure not to become one of them. Keep reciting and keep us in your prayers.Read More
