Benefits of Surah Yasin

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I want to write about the benefits of reciting and knowing Surah Yasin.

First of all just reciting and reading Quran has so much benefit in it.

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So with this being mentioned everyone should try to incorporate Quran in their lives and learn from it. Just try it at least once and slowly build upon it. The religion of Islam is powerful so don’t overdo it and burn yourself out, rather take a gradual process to do this.

So here are some hadiths on the benefits of Surah Yasin:

Anas (RA) reported Allah’s Messenger (saw) saying, “Everything has a heart and the heart of the Holy Qur’an is Yasin. Allah I will record anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Holy Qur’an ten times.” (Tirmidhi, Darimi)

The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘Whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur’an ten times.’[Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

Maqal ibn Yasaar Muzani (RA) reported the Holy Prophet (saw) saying, “If anyone recites Yasin for Allah’s  pleasure, his past sins will be forgiven; so recite it on those who are dying.”( Baihaqi)

Aisha (RA) reports Rasulullah (saw) saying, “Indeed in the Noble Qur’an there is a surah which, for its reader will intercede and which will be a means of forgiveness for its listener. Listen carefully, it is Surah Yasin, in the Torah it is called Muimmah.”
It was enquired, “O’ Messenger of Allah r, what is Muimmah?” Rasulullah 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?” Rasulullah 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 I. 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 diseases.” (Tha’labi, Tirmidhi in Nawadirul Usul)

Ummud Darda (RA) reports the Noble Prophet (saw) saying, “Over no person who is about to die and Surah Yasin is read upon them but Allah I lightens the difficulties of death for him.”( Qurtubi)

As you can see that there are many benefits to reciting and knowing this Surah. So to protect ourselves and to prepare ourselves let us try to learn more about Islam and pick up the Quran more often. Below is a link for you to purchase your own Quran and please check out our shopping page.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you some hadiths that convey how sending praises(Durood) to the beloved Prophet Muhammad(SAW) is a great blessing for us. As we all know, Prophet Muhammad(SAW) is a man with the best of character and is the man who will testify for us on the Day of Judgement. So it is beneficial for us to send Durood towards are beloved Prophet Muhammad(SAW).

Here are some hadiths about the benefits of Durood:

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “He who sends a single Durood upon me, Almighty Allah rewards him ten times and ten good deeds are recorded in his book of good deeds”. (Tirmidhi)

Abdullah ibn Masood (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that  Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “On the Day of Qiyamah, the closest to me from among the people will be those that have read the most amount of Durood”. (Tirmidhi: Kanzul Amaal)

Abu Talha (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that he once entered the Court of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and noticed that the Habeeb of Almighty Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was in a state of great joy and happiness. When he inquired as to the reason for this, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) replied that, “Why should I not be happy and joyous? At this very moment Sayyiduna Jibra’el Ameen (alaihis salaam) has brought me a message. Almighty Allah has declared, ‘O Muhammad! Are you not pleased with this, that if any of your followers sends a single Durood upon you, I and My Angels (Malaa’ikah) send ten blessings upon that person, ten of his sins are pardoned and ten good deeds are recorded in his favour. He who sends Salaams upon you, I send Salaams upon him, so therefore, notify your Ummah of this good news and tell them that it is now left to them to either increase or decrease the recital of the Durood Shareef'”. (Nisaai)

Abdullah ibn Masood (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that, “I read my Salaah in the Masjid when Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), Sayyiduna Abu Bakr and Sayyiduna Umar (radi Allahu anhuma) were present. When I had completed the Salaah, I began to praise Almighty Allah. Thereafter, I began to read the Durood Shareef. When I started the Du’a, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) exclaimed, ‘Ask, and you shall receive, you shall receive!'”. (Tirmidhi)

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “On the Pillars of the Arsh of Almighty Allah are written the following words, ‘He who desires to meet Me, I bless him. He who asks from Me, I grant him. He who reads the Durood upon my Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) desiring My closeness, I pardon his sins, even if it be more than the foams of the ocean'”. (Dalaa’ilul Khayraat)

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “There is a purifier and a refinement for everything. For the heart of a Muslim, a means of purification and refinement is through the recital of the Durood Shareef”. (Al Qolul Badi)

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “O my followers! Your recital of the Durood Shareef is a protector for your Du’as. It also achieves for you the Pleasure of Almighty Allah and it purifies your actions”. (Sadaatud Daarain)

There are many different Durood’s, but I linked one. Find out online about the other Durood’s.

There are many more hadiths on the benefits of Durood, but even with this much we can see how beneficial for us in this dunya(world) and in the Ahkirah(Hereafter) reciting the Durood is.

Insha’Allah that we turn to Allah(SWT) and ask for his forgiveness, guidance, protection, and to enter us all into Junnah al Firdaus.

Benefits of Ayatul Kursi

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I want to write about the benefits of reciting and knowing Ayatul Kursi.

First of all just reciting and reading quran has so much benefit in it.

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So with this being mentioned everyone should try to incorporate Quran in their lives and learn from it. Just try it at least once and slowly build upon it. The religion of Islam is powerful so don’t overdo it and burn yourself out, rather take a gradual process to do this.

So here are some hadiths on the benefits of Ayatul Kursi:

Rasool Allah peace be upon him said, “Whoever recites Aayatul Kursi after every Fard (Fard Salat). Only death is keeping him/her from entering Jannah. (As soon as he/she dies, will enter Jannah)
(Nisa’i, Ibne Habban, Ibnelsani A’n Abi Amatah Albahili Radiallah Anhu)

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
“Everything has a hump and the hump of the Quran is surah al-Baqarah. There is a verse in it that is the
chief of all verses of the Qur’an, the ayat ul-Kursi.”
(Tirmidhi 2887)

Abu Hurairah reports:
“Whenever you go to bed, recite “Ayat-al-Kursi”– ‘Allaahu laa ilaaha illaa huwal-Hayyul Qayyuum’ till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and no satan will come near you till morning. “
(Bukhari Book #38, Hadith #505)

Wathala (ALLAH be well pleased with him) reported that one day a man came to the Prophet (ALLAH bless him and give him peace) and asked, “What is the most excellent verse of the Quran?” The Prophet (ALLAH bless him and give him peace) replied, “Ayat al-Kursi.”
[Sunan Abi Dawud: Fada’il al-Qur’an. Imam Abu Dawud]

Anas (ALLAH be well pleased with him) reports that the Prophet (ALLAH bless him and give him peace) said that Ayat al-Kursi is equal to a quarter of the Quran.[Tafsir al-Mazhari: Under Ayat al-Kursi. Qadi Thana’ullah Pani-pathi]

As you can see that there are many benefits to reciting and knowing this Ayat. So to protect ourselves and to prepare ourselves let us try to learn more about Islam and pick up the Quran more often. Below is a link for you to purchase your own Quran and please check out our shopping page.

The Holy Qur’an: English Translation, Commentary and Notes with Full Arabic Text (English and Arabic Edition)

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to say that if you have done terrible things in your life that you should be patient and turn to Allah(SWT) because it is unfathomable how merciful Allah(SWT) is.  Below are two hadiths that explain the mercy of Allah(SWT).

Abu Huraira (radi allahu anhu) reported: I heard Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as saying: Allah created mercy in one hundred parts and He retained with Him ninety-nine parts, and He has sent down upon the earth one part, and it is because of this one part that there is mutual love among the creation so much so that the animal lifts up its hoof from its young, one, fearing that it might harm it.  (Muslim)

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (radi allahu anhu): The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Amongst the men of Bani Israel there was a man who had murdered ninety-nine persons. Then he set out asking (whether his repentance could be accepted or not). He came upon a monk and asked him if his repentance could be accepted. The monk replied in the negative and so the man killed him. He kept on asking till a man advised to go to such and such village.(So he left for it) but death overtook him on the way. While dying, he turned his chest towards that village (where he had hoped his repentance would be accepted), and so the angels of mercy and the angels of punishment quarreled amongst themselves regarding him. Allah ordered the village (towards which he was going) to come closer to him, and ordered the village (whence he had come), to go far away, and then He ordered the angels to measure the distances between his body and the two villages. So he was found to be one span closer to the village (he was going to). So he was forgiven.” (Bukari)

Now imagine how merciful and forgiving Allah(SWT) is. A man killed 100 people and he pushed away and brought closer certain towns to fill the requirements for this man to be forgiving. Allah(SWT) wants to forgive mankind. He wants to send mankind to paradise. That’s why he divided his mercy into 100 parts, in which he held 99 for himself to be merciful for mankind. This why as we must always turn back to Allah(SWT) for repentance, forgiveness, guidance, and strength.

Quran: “Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”” (Surah Az-Zumar, 39:53).

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to tell everyone that every single person has his past. Every single person has done something stupid in their lives. All one must do is strengthen their faith and hope in Allah (SWT) because Allah(SWT) is Ar-Rahim, the all merciful, Ar-Gaffar, the forgiver, and Al-Wadud, the loving one.

I would like to share with you two hadiths about how forgiving and merciful Allah(SWT) is:

Narrated by Abu Huraira(radiyallahu anhu) : The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “While a dog was going round a well and was about to die of thirst, an Israeli prostitute saw it and took off her shoe and watered it. So Allah forgave her because of that good deed.” (Volume 4, Book 56, Number 673, Bukhari)

Narrated by Abu Sa’id(radiyallahu anhu): The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Amongst the people preceding your age, there was a man whom Allah had given a lot of money. While he was in his death-bed, he called his sons and said, ‘What type of father have I been to you? They replied, ‘You have been a good father.’ He said, ‘I have never done a single good deed; so when I die, burn me, crush my body, and scatter the resulting ashes on a windy day.’ His sons did accordingly, but Allah gathered his particles and asked (him), ‘What made you do so?’ He replied, “Fear of you.’ So Allah bestowed His Mercy upon him. (forgave him).” (Volume 4, Book 56, Number 684, Bukhari)

Now can you even imagine the forgiving nature of Allah(SWT). It is incomparable. Allah(SWT) forgave a prostitute for just giving a dying dog water. Also Allah(SWT) bestowed His mercy upon a man who claims to have not done any good deeds. Who on this earth can be that forgiving. No one at all.

So I would like to leave off by saying no matter what your past is, you should push forward, go to Allah(SWT), and repent to him with sincerity because Allah(SWT) is At-Tawwab, the granter and accepter of repentance.
