"In the Name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful

Introduction

The importance of reciting, studying and contemplating on the verses of the Holy Qur’an cannot be stressed enough. Indeed this great revelation has many depths and mysteries that have yet to be discovered. Those who frequently read the Holy Qur’an can attest to the fact that it is an unending source of information and a bottomless well of fresh knowledge and guidance. Reading it repeatedly does not lead to ennui, but rather causes one to open many more avenues of thought.
How unfortunate is the person who forsakes the words of his Creator ? And what excuse would be acceptable for doing so ? If the true value of the Holy Qur’an was understood, the Muslims of the world would not be where they are today. Lifetimes can be spent in research about the meanings of what is contained in this divine book and yet nothing would be exhausted from it.
Yet this great living miracle lies abandoned in our libraries, bookshelves, or even in a beautifully created casing; gathering dust from lack of use. All this while we digress in all spheres of our lives. This is why when we will be brought to account for our deeds and misdeeds on the Day of Judgment, we will have no reason to say that we were not adequately guided, because we are the ones who did not take the readily available guidance.
At this point it should be mentioned that one cannot interpret the verses of the Holy Qur’an using their own logical deductions or reasoning. If we were to do this then we would easily stray from the correct path and would begin to justify our fallacies with our own interpretations of this divine text. Many traditions have been narrated about this and grave punishments have been promised to those who misuse the Holy Qur’an for personal gain.
The tafseer or interpretation of the Holy Qur’an is actually done very carefully by very learned religious scholars who refer to vast amounts of historical texts and traditions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) and the Aimmah (a.s). Fortunately, many tafaseer are readily available today and one can easily find the interpretations of any particular verse of the Holy Qur’an.
It should be noted, however, that aside from the benefits of guidance towards divine truth, the verses and chapters of the Holy Qur’an also have a hidden benefit. In fact, there is so much benefit in the recitation of some portions of this great book, that it would surprise us.
This is the aspect of the Holy Qur’an that we wish to discuss in the following pages. Hopefully, it will be a way of encouraging people to frequently recite the Holy Qur’an and take advantage of its numerous benefits. We pray to Allah (s.w.t.) to enlist us from those who always recite the Holy Qur’an when He raises us on the Day of Judgement – Ameen.













SECTION ONE
Benefits of the recitation of the chapters of the Holy Qur’an


The Verse “Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim”

If we were to give an exhaustive account of the benefits of the recitation of “Bismillah…” we would need more than a single volume to do justice to it. Apart from being part of every chapter in the Holy Qur’an (except the chapter of repentance [surah at-tawba]), it is also the most oft repeated verse in the Holy Qur’an.
It is narrated in Tafseere Burhaan that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that when a person recites “Bismillah...” then five thousand ruby palaces are built for him in Jannah Each palace has a thousand chambers made of pearls and in each chamber has seventy thousand thrones of emerald and each throne has seventy thousand carpets made from special fabrics and upon each carpet is seated a Hur-ul-Ein. A person asked for the condition necessary to get this great reward and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) replied that the person should recite the “Bismillah…” with conviction and understanding.
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has also said that when a believer will have to cross the Pul-e-Siraat on the Day of Judgement, and he will say “Bismillah…” then the flames beneath him will start dying down until Jahannam will cry out, ‘O believer, pass through quickly, your presence is causing my fire to die out !’
When a teacher teaches a child to recite “Bismillah…” the child, his parents and the teacher are all guaranteed freedom from hellfire. It is narrated that Prophet Isa (a.s.) was once passing by a graveyard and he saw a grave upon which the Wrath and Punishment of Allah (s.w.t.) was descending, so he quietly walked past. When he passed the same place after some time, he noticed that the Mercy and Blessings of Allah (s.w.t.) was being showered on the same grave. He was surprised at this and asked Allah (s.w.t.) about what has happened and it was revealed to him that the man inside the grave was a sinner and was thus being punished for his sins. When he died, his wife was pregnant and soon gave birth to a son. When the boy grew older, his mother took him to a teacher who taught him to recite “Bismillah…” and I felt that it would not be justice that this man’s son was calling My Name and I was punishing his father in the grave.
It is also mentioned that recitation of “Bismillah…” with a loud voice is from the signs of a true believer. Imam Ali Ridha (a.s.) said that “Bismillah…” is very close to the chosen name of Allah (s.w.t.) [Isma A’adham].


Surah al-Fatihah (The Opening)

There are seven verses in this surah (chapter) and it is said that this surah is both ‘makki’ and ‘madani’ ie. it was revealed in both Makkah and Madinah.
In the commentary of Majma’ul Bayan it is narrated that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said that whoever recites this surah, he will get the reward for reciting two thirds (2/3) of the whole Qur’an, and will get the reward equivalent to what would be gained by giving charity to all the believing men and women in the world.
One of the companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) narrates that he once recited this surah in the presence of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) and the Prophet said, ‘By Him in whose hand is my soul, a similar revelation to this has not been included in the Taurat (Torah), Injeel (Bible), Zabur (Psalms) or even the Qur’an itself.’
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) once asked Jabir ibn Abdallah Ansari, “Should I teach you a surah that has no other comparison to it in the whole Qur’an ?” Jabir replied, “Yes, and may my parents be ransom upon you O prophet of Allah.” So the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) taught him surah al-Fatihah. Then the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) asked, “Jabir, should I tell you something about this surah ?” Jabir answered, “Yes, and may my parents be ransom upon you O prophet of Allah.” The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “It (surah al-Fatihah) is a cure for every ailment except death.”
Imam AbuAbdillah Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that whoever cannot be cured by surah al-Fatihah, then there is no cure for that person. In the same narration it is written that if this surah is recited 70 times on any part of the body that is paining, the pain will surely go away. In fact, the power of this surah is so great that it is said that if one were to recite it 70 times over a dead body, you should not become surprised if that body starts moving (ie. comes back to life).
Surah al-Fatihah is a cure for physical and also spiritual ailments. Without this surah, even the daily prayers are incomplete. It is indeed a great treasure that has been given to us by Allah (s.w.t.) through the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) and no previous prophet has been given anything like it. This surah is also known as ‘Ummul Kitab’ and ‘Sab’a mathani’.

Surah al-Baqarah (The Cow)

This surah has 286 verses and is a ‘madani’ surah ie. it was revealed in Madinah. It is also the longest surah in the Holy Qur’an.
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that whoever recites the first four verses of surah al-Baqarah, accompanied by the ‘ayatul kursi’ together with the last three verses of this surah - and makes a habit of reciting these verses daily – his life, property and family will be protected and no evil shall come upon them. Shaitan will not come close to him and he will not be from those who forget Allah (s.w.t.).

Surah Ale-Imran (The Family of Imran)

In this surah, there are a total of 200 verses and it was revealed in Madinah. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that whoever recites surah Ale-Imran on Friday, then until the setting of the sun, he will be showered by the Mercy of Allah (s.w.t.) and the angels will beg for his forgiveness.
The Prophet (s.a.w.) has also recommended this surah for those women who are not able to conceive. The surah should be written using saffron and then given to her to wear as a talisman and by the Will of Allah (s.w.t.) she will conceive.
Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that if a person faces hardship in earning his livelihood, he should write this surah and wear it as a talisman and Allah (s.w.t.) will increase his sustenance greatly. The Imam (a.s.) also said that if anyone recites both surah al-Baqarah and Ale-Imran, then these surahs will come in the shape of clouds on the day of judgement to protect him from the scorching heat.

Surah an-Nisa (The Women)

This surah was revealed in Madinah and has a total of 177 verses. In ‘tafseer al-burhan’ it is written that Imam Ali (a.s.) has said that whoever recites this surah on every Friday, he will remain safe from the squeezing in the grave (‘fishare qabr’).

Surah al-Ma’idah (The Table-spread)

There are 120 verses in this surah and it is a ‘makki’ surah ie. it was revealed in Makkah.

Surah al-An’aam (The Cattle)

This surah was revealed in Makkah and contains a total of 165 verses. Imam Ridha (a.s.) has said that this surah was revealed accompanied by the descending of seventy thousand angels. These angels will ask forgiveness from Allah (s.w.t.) for any person who recites this surah, and they will continue doing so until the Day of Judgement.
Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that if a person writes this surah using musk or saffron and then drinks it (ie. puts the written surah in water for its writing to dissolve) for six consecutive days, that person will be blessed abundantly and will be free from all problems and ailments. He will not loose his health or fall sick.
The 6th Holy Imam (a.s.) also said that this surah must be accorded due respect as the name of Allah (s.w.t.) appears 70 times in it. If people knew the benefits of reciting this surah, they would never leave it.


Surah al-A’araaf (The Elevated Places)

There are 206 verses in this ‘makki’ surah. It is reported from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.), that whoever recites this surah once a month, he will have no worry or fear on the Day of Resurrection and if it is recited on a Friday, then the reciter will be from among those who will be exempted from the taking of accounts on the Day of Judgement.
Surah al-A’araaf has the ayaat al-muhkamaat that will give witness on behalf of its reciter on the Day of Reckoning. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that there will be a veil between the reciter of this surah and Iblees on Judgement day and the reciter will be in the company of Prophet Adam (a.s.)
Writing this surah with rose water and saffron and keeping the writing at all times ensures safety from enemies and wild animals.

This surah contains the verse about khums, which is the right of the Ahlul Bayt. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) said that he will, on the Day of Judgement, intercede for the person who recites this surah and will bear witness that the reciter of this surah was free from hypocrisy. Keeping surah al-Anfaal in your possession at all times ensures that you get your rights that have been taken from you and your legitimate desires are fulfilled.

It is also narrated that if a person recites surah Yunus, he will get the reward equal to the number of people who were present in the community of Prophet Yunus (a.s.).
This surah can be used as a means of identifying thieves from among your workers.

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that writing this surah on a sheepskin and keeping it in one’s possession at all times makes one so courageous and bold that nobody can defeat him in combat. Whoever sees him will be filled with fear.

Surah Yusuf

It has been narrated from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq that whoever recited this surah daily, he will be raised on the day of Qiyamah with the handsomeness of Prophet Yusuf (a.s.) and he will be protected from the fear and discomfort of this day.

There are 43 ayaat in this surah and it is ‘makki’ though some Mufassireen (those who have written commentaries of the Holy Qur’an) say that the last verse of this surah was revealed in Madinah. In fact, some even go as far as saying that the whole of this surah is ‘madani’ except for two verses.

If this surah is written at night, after the time for Isha prayers, under a candlelight, and then hung outside the door of a tyrant ruler’s palace, then the ruler will perish and so will his control over the people. His army and his supporters will betray him and nobody will listen to him.

This surah should be recited before war, going before a tyrant ruler and trying to guide a community towards the path of Allah (s.w.t.).

Verses to be recited after prayers

Some actions are to be performed after the completion of every compulsory prayer and these are called Ta’qibaat. Out of the numerous actions that have been recommended, there are a few verses of the Holy Qur’an that have also been prescribed and carry much reward if recited after the daily prayers.
The following is a list of the verses that should be recited and a note of the reward gained for the recitation of each one.

1. Ayah ash-Shahada (Surah Ale Imran : 18-19)
In the commentary of Majma’ul Bayaan, it is narrated from the Holy Prophet that those who recite this ayah make a covenant with Allah (s.w.t.) and Allah always fulfils His covenants. If this ayah is recited after every prayer, then Jannah is guaranteed to the reciter.

2. Ayah al-Mulk (Surah Ale Imran : 26-27)
It is narrated that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) once advised one of his companions, who was in debt, to recite this ayah after every prayer and then supplicate to Allah (s.w.t.) for the repayment of his debts saying that even if the debts are equal to the entire land on Earth, they will be repaid.

Verses to be recited before sleeping

It is narrated that whoever recites [surah al-Fatir : 41] before going to sleep is kept safe from the collapse of his home on top of him. Imam Ali (a.s.) has said that if a person recites [surah al-A’araaf : 196] and [surah az-Zumar : 67] before going to sleep, he will be safe from drowning (if he is sleeping on a ship) or burning (in his home).
Recitation of [surah al-Kahf : 110] is good for making a person wake up at a particular time. All that has to be done is to make an intention of the exact time you wish to wake up and then recite this ayah before sleeping. Surah at-Takathur is also recommended and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said that whoever recites it before sleeping will be saved from the horrors of the grave.

Recitations specifically for Thursday nights and Fridays

It is recorded that if a person recites surah Bani-Isra’il on Thursday night, he will meet the 12th Imam (a.t.f.) and will be among his companions. The one who recites surah al-Kahf will die a martyr and will be raised with the martyrs on the Day of Judgement.
Whoever recites surah Saad on Thursday night will be blessed with good in this world and good in the hereafter to such an extent that nobody except the prophets and those who are very close to Allah (s.w.t.) will get a similar reward.

He will get the reward equivalent to that of freeing a thousand slaves for each letter he recites and seventy thousand angels will pray for his sins to be forgiven.

All these carry great reward and should be recited if possible. Imam Ali (a.s.) has said that whoever recites surah an-Nisaa on Fridays will be protected from the torments of the grave. The one who recites surah Hud will be counted with the prophets and messengers and his sins will be forgiven.
The benefit of reciting surah al-Kahf is that all sins of the past week are forgiven.

Recitations for increase in sustenance

It is narrated that writing surah al-Mu’min at night and then keeping it in one’s place of business increases sustenance. Keeping surah al-Hijr in one’s pocket or tied to the arm is also a means of increase in livelihood. Surah al-Qaari’ah should be worn around the neck and surah al-Waaqi’ah should be recited every night to stay independent in terms of earning an income. Reciting surah adh-Dhariyaat every day also increases sustenance.
Writing [al-Fatir : 29-30] and keeping it at the place of trade also acts as a means of increase in income. Keeping [al-Jumu’ah : 4] together with your goods for sale brings blessing and keeps the goods safe from damage. Drinking water in which surah Yusuf has been dissolved (after writing) also increases sustenance.

Verses that help to quickly repay debts

As mentioned earlier, ayah al-Mulk [Ale Imran : 26-27] should be recited for those who wish to repay their debts. One should recite this ayah and then supplicate to Allah (s.w.t.) that he wishes to repay his debts and seeks help for doing so. For the same purpose, the last two verses of surah al-Baqarah should also be recited after every ‘Isha prayer.
The recitation of ayah al-Kursi after every prayer and reciting surah al-Waaqi’ah 41 times are other means of getting divine assistance in the repaying of debts.



In Conclusion…

It would be right to argue that the material presented in this book is in no way exhaustive. There is much more benefit in the recitation of the Holy Qur’an than can be imagined or perceived. What you have read is just a drop in the ocean, but it should be enough to convince anyone to read Qur’an more regularly and try to ponder over it.
In conclusion, we all pray to Allah (s.w.t.) to make our hearts attached to the Holy Qur’an and make us able to understand its teachings and guidance. "
