Rewards and Virtues of Surah Yasin, al-Waqiah and al-Mulk

It has been said by our prominent scholars that one should be especially observant in reciting Surah Ya Sin (36), Surat al Waqia (56) and Surat al  Mulk.(67)

The Virtues and Benefits of Surah Yasin (36)

1. The Prophet  (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘Surely everything has a heart, and the heart  of the Qur’an is Yasin. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of  my people’[Bazzar]. (S.Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Tafsir-al-SabuniVol.2)

2. 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]

3. It has been reported by Aisha (radiAllahu anha)that the  Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that there is a surah in the Qur’an that  intercedes for its reciter and forgive its listener. Know! It is Surah Yasin. It  is called ‘Mu’amma’ in the Torah. It was enquired, what is Mu’amma? The Prophet  (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘it embraces the person with the goodness of  this world and removes the dismay of the Hereafter’[Hashiya of Tafsir Jalalalayn  , pg 368].

4. The Prophet said, ‘Whoever recited Surah Yasin in the night  seeking Allah’s pleasure, Allah would forgive him’[Ibn Hibban, Darimi 3283/A,  Abu Yala, Tabarani, Baihaqi & Ibn Mardawaih]

5. Ma`qil ibn Yasar  (Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah’s  blessings and peace be upon him, his family, companions, and followers) said,”Ya  Sin is the heart of the Qur’an. No one reads it intending thereby Allah and the  Next Abode except that Allah forgives them. Recite it for your deceasedones.”  [Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i (this wording is his), and Hakim, who  deemed it rigorously authenticated (sahih)]

6. Imam Ghazali explained  that this is because soundness of faith rests on acknowledging Resurrection and  Judgment, and Surat Ya Sin details this in the most emphatic of ways. Imam Fakhr  al-Din al-Razi concurred.

7. Imam Tibi explained in his commentary on  Mishkat al-Masabih that Surat Ya Sin was called ‘the Heart of the Qur ‘an ‘  because of what it contains of overwhelming proofs, decisive signs, subtle  spiritual meanings, eloquent admonition, and stern warnings.

The Virtues and Benefits of Surah al Waqiah (56)

8. The  Prophet said, ‘Whoever recites surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter  poverty’ [Ibn Sunni 620]

9. The Prophet said, ‘Surah al Waqiah is the  Surah of Wealth, so recite it and teach it to your children’[Ibn Asakir]

The Virtues and Benefits of Surah al Mulk (67)

10. The  Prophet said, ‘There is a surah in the Qur’an which is only thirty verses. It  defended whoevere\recited it , until it puts him into paradise ‘ i.e.Surah al  Mulk[Fath al Qadir 5/257, Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Tabrani inAl-Awsat & Ibn  Mardawaith]

11. The Prophet said, ‘Surah al Mulk is the protector from  the torment of the grave ‘[Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Hakim 2/498 &  Nasai]

12. Jabir (radiAllahu anhu) said it was the custom of the Holy  Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam not to go to sleep until he had read  Tabarakalladhi Biyadihil Mulk and Alif Laam Meem Tanzeel. [Ahmad, Tirmidhi and  Darami]

13. Anas (radiAllahu anhu) reported Rasulullah (sallallahu  alaiyhi wasalam) as saying, "There is a Surah which will plead for its reciter  till it causes him to enter paradise" (Tabarakalladhi Biyadihil Mulk). [Tabrani]
