Surah Yaseen

Surah Yaseen is one of the most reverend Surah of Qur’an and Muslims all over the world memorize it, recite it, and listen to its recitation with great respect and sanctity.

 Yā Sīn is the 36th chapter of the Qur’an with 83 ayat, and is one of the Meccan suras. The name of the chapter comes from the two letters of the first verse of the chapter, which has caused much scholarly debate, and which Tafsir al-Jalalayn, a Sunni Tafsir, interprets by saying “Allah knows best what He means by these.”

The Heart of Qur’an  

 Surah Yaseen

There is a reason behind the greater prestige of Surah Yaseen as it is mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in His various hadiths entailing numerous benefits of its recitation.

 Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in His Hadith:

“Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Quran is Yaseen. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people.” (Tafsir-al- Sabuni Vol.2)

Hadhrat ‘Ataa’ bin Abi Ribaah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) says that Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said, “ Whoever reads Surah Yaseen in the beginning of the day, all his needs for that day are fulfilled.”

 Recite {Yasin} over those of you who are dying/deceased.” Narrated by Abu Dawud in his Sunan.

“Everything has a heart and the heart of the Glorious Quran is Surah Yaseen. Whoever reads Surah Yaseen, Allah records for them a reward equal to that of reading the whole Quran 10 times.” [Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

“Recite Yaseen on those who are dying.” (Dawud)

 “Whoever recites Surah Yaseen at night seeking the pleasure of Allah, that night he will be forgiven.” (Abu Nuaym)
