salaam! :)

Surah al Fatiha (1)

Once the Prophet was traveling when he disembarked and began walking alongside a companion. He asked him, 'Shouldn't I tell you the best part of the Qur'an?' then he recited 'Alhamdu lillahi rabil alameen' (Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds). (First verse in Surrah Al Fatiha (1:1)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
"Whoever mastered the first seven (chapters or verses) from the Qur'an is a pontiff." [Hakim 1/564; Dhahabi]

Also Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
"In the Fatiha of the Qur'an, there is a cure for all maladies (illnesses)"[Darimi 3236]

Surah al Baqara (2)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
"The Qur'an and those who committed themselves to it will be presented on the Day of judgment, preceded by Surrah Al Baqara and Surrah Al Imran."[Muslim 805]

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) also said:
"Learn how to recite Surah Al Baqara for there is a blessing in it, and there is sorrow for abandoning it, and it is unbearable for the idle' and that Al Baqara and Al Imran are like two flowers which will shade their learner on the day of Judgment, as if there were two large clouds or two flocks of birds." [Ahmad 21872 & Buraida al-Aslami Muslim 1/553]

Also Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
"Recite Surrah Al Baqara in your dwellings and do not keep them as tombs. He also said that whoever recited Surrah Al Baqara at night would be crowned with a crown of paradise."[Baihaqi in Al-Shuaib]

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
"Do not make your house as tombs, for Satan averts a dwelling wherein Surrah Al Baqara is recited"[Muslim 780]

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was asked, 'Which part of the Qur'an is the best?'. He replied, 'The Surrah in which the cow is mentioned'. He was then asked 'Which part of that Surrah?'. He replied, 'The verse of the Throne and the last part of Surrah Al Baqara came down from under the Throne' [Darimi 3248]

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'Whoever recites 4 verses from the first part of Surrah Al Baqara, the verse of the Throne, two verses after the verse of the Throne and three verses from the last part of Surrah Al Baqara, Satan would never come near him or the members of his family on that day, and nothing he despises would come near him or the members of his family, and never are these verses recited over a madman without him regaining his consciousness'[Darimi 3249/A in the Book of Excellence of the Quran; an-Nasai in the Deeds during the Day and Night]; Ibn Hibban & Tabrani]

Abdullah ibn Masud (may Allah be please with him) said, 'Whoever recited ten verses from Al-Baqara in the night, Satan shall not have access to that house, during the night till he wakes in the morning. These are: Four from the first part of the Surrah, followed by the verse of the Throne, two verses after the verse of the Throne and three from the last part of the Surrah'.[Darimi 3248/A]

Surah al Imran (3)

Abdullah ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him) said, 'What an excellent treasure Surrah Al Imran is to the pauper when he recites it in prayer during the last part of the night' [Darimi 3264/A]


Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'Allah's most magnificent name, which when used to implore Him, He responds, is found in three Surrahs. Al Baqara, Al Imran and Taha'[Hakim & Ibn Majah 3856]

Surah al An'am (6)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'This Surah was seen off by as many angels as could block the horizon' [Hakim, Dhahabi & Baihaqi]

Surah Yusuf (12)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'Teach your relative the recitation of Surrah Yusuf, for, any Muslim who recites it or teaches it to his family, Allah shall ease for him the agony of death, and give him the strength that will prevent him from envying a fellow Muslim'[Ibn Asakir]

Surah al Kahf (18)

The Prophet (PBUH) said:
'Whoever recited Surrah Al Kahf on a Friday, Allah will kindle for him abundant light to illuminate the period between the two Fridays (the Friday on which he recited the Surrah and the next Friday)'[Hakim 1/564 & Dhahabi]

Surah al Mu'minun (23)

Ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him recited (Surrah Al Mu'minun from verse 115 to 118) in the ear of an afflicted person and the man was cured.

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'What did you recite in his ear?' Ibn Masud told him, and the Prophet (PBUH) said, 'By He in Whose hand lies my soul, Were a believing man to recite it over a mountain, it would have melted'.[Fath al Qadir 3/502]

Surah as Sajda (32)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) would not sleep until he recited Surrah Al Sajda.[Tirmidhi 5/165; Hakim 2/412 & Dhahabi in Sahih al Jamiea (22/789)]


Khalid ibn Ma'dan (may Allah be pleased with him) said, "Recite the Deliverer, which is Alif Laam Tanzeel, for I have heard that a man who had committed many sins used to recite it and nothing else. It spread its wing over him and said, ‘O’ My Lord, forgive him, for he often used to recite me.’ So the Lord Most High made it an intercessor for him and said, ‘Record for him a good deed and raise him a degree in place of every sin."Khalid (radiAllahu anhu) also said, "It will dispute on behalf of the one who recites it when he is in his grave saying, O Allah, if I am part of Thy Book, make me an intercessor for him. But if I am not a part of Thy Book, blot me out of it. It will be like a bird putting its wing on him, it will intercede for him and will protect him from the punishment in the grave." He said the same about Tabaarakalladhi (Surah Mulk). Khalid (radiAllahu anhu) did not go to sleep at night till he had recited them. Taus said that they were given sixty virtues more than any other Surah in the Holy Qur'an. Surah Yasin (36)


Surah Yassin (36)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'Whoever recited Surrah Yassin at night seeking Allah's pleasure, Allah would forgive him' [Ibn Hibban, Darimi 3283/A, Abu Yala, Tabarani, Baihaqi & Ibn Mardawaih]

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
"Whoever recited Surrah Yassin would seem (in terms of reward) as if he had recited the Qur'an ten times."[Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

Surah ad Dukhan (44)

Ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him) said, 'The 'ha-meems' are the embellishment of the Qur'an[Hakim, Dhahabi, Ibn Al Mundhir & Baihaqi]

The 'ha-meems' refer to the seven Surrahs which have ha-meem at the start.

Surah al Fath (48)

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
'A Surrah of the Qur'an was revealed to me tonight, indeed it is the dearest Surrah to my heart, than anything under the sun'. Then the Prophet recited Surrah al Fath verses 1-5[Bukhari 5012]

Surah al Hadid (57)

The Prophet (PBUH) used to recite Surahs of Glorification before returing and he said that there is a verse in them which is better than a thousand verses. [Tirmidhi 5/181] NB These Surahs are: Al-Hadid, Al-Hashr, As-Saf, Al-Juma and At-Tagabun

Surah al Hashr (59)

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'Whoever when he wakes in the morning says 'I seek refuge with Allah against the accursed satan' and then recited three verses from the last part of Surah al Hashr, will be assigned seventy thousand angels to pray for him until the evening, and should he die that day, he would have died a martyr' [Ibn Ahmad, Darimi, Tirmidhi 5/182]

Surah al Mulk (67)

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

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'Surah al Mulk is the protector from the torment of the grave' [Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Hakim 2/498 & Nasai]

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]

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] Surah al Zilzilah (99)

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'Whoever recited Surah Zilzilah would get the reward of reciting half the Qur'an. Whoever recited surah al Kaafiroon would get a reward as if reading a quarter of the Qur'an. Whoever recited Surah al Ikhlas would get a reward as if reading one third of the Qur'an'. [Tirmidhi 2818/A]]

An old man, saying that his heart had difficulty in remembering, and tongue is sluggish asked the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam); "Teach me the reading of a comprehensive surah." So Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) taught him to recite Idha dul dilatil ardhu dhildalaha up to the end. The man said, "I swear by Him who has sent you with the truth that I shall never recite more than that." Surah Aadiyat (100)

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'Whoever recietes Aadiyat his reqard equals one half of the Qur'an' [Hakim 1/566 & Tirmidhi 2894]

Surah at Takathur (102)

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'Whoever recited one thousand verses in one night would meet Allah with a smile on his face'. Someone said, 'O Apostle, who can recite a thousand verses?'. The Prophet then recited Surah and then said, 'By He in Whose hand my soul is, it is equal to a thousand verses' [Al Khatib in Al Muttafaq wal Muftaraq & Dailami in Fath al Qadir 5/487]

Surah al Kafiroon (109)

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'Recite surah al Kafiroon and then go to sleep after coming to its end, for it is a clearance from shirk' [Abu Dawud 4396 & Hakim 1/565]

Surah al Ikhlas (112)

A man said to the Prophet (PBUH), 'I really love this surah'. The Prophet replied, 'And your love for it will enable you to enter paradise' [Tirmidhi 2826/A]

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'By Him in Whose hand my soul is, it is equal to one third of the Qur'an!' [Bukhari 5014]

Anas (radiAllahu anhu) reported the Holy Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) as saying, "If anyone recites two hundred times daily, Qul huwallahu ahad the sins of fifty years will be wiped out, unless he is in debt." [at-Tirmidhi and Darami].

Surah al Falaq (113)

The Prophet (PBUH) said, 'O Uqba, learn to recite Surah al Falaq, for you would never recite a surah more cherished by Allah and more profound in His sight than this surah' [Durais, Ibn al Anbari, Hakim, Dhahabi & Ibn Mardawaih]

The Prophet (PBUH) used to seek refuge from the jinn as well as from the evil eye until Surah al Falaq and An Naas were revealed. Afterwhich he would recite these two for those purposes. [Tirmidhi 1984]
