3 surahs to read at night featured

Al-Rahman is one of the 99 names of Allah. The surah starts with the word Rahman and then shows us the countless blessings that Allah gave us, and how heaven will be. It’s the surah number 55 with 78 verses.

Allah said in the holy Quran: “The Most Merciful taught the Quran, created man, [and] taught him eloquence.”

In this verse, Allah tells us how the Quran in itself is a guidance and blessing to us. It is one of the best surahs to read for anxiety. As it will ease your heart and give you peace of mind, making you feel better.

Surah Ar-Rahman shows us how many blessings we have in our lives. It talks about the rewards of the believers. What will happen to the disbelievers? Additionally the day of judgment. 

In this surah, there’s a verse that is repeated 31 times. The verse says:

“then which of the bounties of your Lord do you both (man and jinn) deny”.

This verse shows us that no one on earth whether humans or Jinn can deny the many blessings we were given.

Here’s a hadith that shows the significance of surah al-Rahman.

It was narrated that: 

“The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) went to the companions and recited Surah Rahman but they were all quiet. He told them that he went to the Jinn and recited it to them and they were responsive. And when he would recite the verses ‘And which of the favors of the Lord will you deny’ the jinn would respond ‘There is nothing among your bounties that we can deny, all praises belong to Allah”.

Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: 

“Everything has an adornment, and the adornment of the Quran is Surah Ar Rahman.”

Reading this surah and learning about the many blessings Allah gave us makes us thankful. That’s why surah Rahman is one of the surahs to read at night.

The name of the surah comes from Allah’s name, the merciful. Surah Rahman talks about the many blessings that Allah gave to us. It opens the eyes of the reader to the truth that many people choose to deny. 

Reading with care and an honest heart brings us closer to Allah and makes us thank him for everything we have in life.

1.     Protection.

Reciting surah Rahman brings us closer to Allah and opens our eyes to the truth. It acknowledges the many blessings that we have in life. Therefore, reading it removes all the questions that keep going in your mind with no answer and it heals your soul.

 It is said that when reading surah Rahman in the morning Allah will send the angels to look after you the whole day. And when reading it at night, the angels will protect you until you wake up.

Importance of reading surah Waqiah before sleeping.

Surah al-Waqiah is well-known for being the Surah of wealth. It’s one of the surahs to read at night as the prophet instructed us to do.

Abdullah ibn Masud reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) said:

 “Whoever recites Surah al-Waqiah every night, will never be afflicted by poverty.” And Ibn Masud used to order his daughters to recite it every night.

The Prophet also said, “Surah al Waqiah is the Surah of Wealth. So recite it and teach it to your children”

Importance of reading Surah Mulk.

The surah discusses Allah’s greatness. And how he created the heavens, earth, humans, and creatures in the best forms. Giving us all the blessings we have and therefore we should be thankful for everything.

Abu Hurairah Narrated that, the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said about the benefits of reading surah al Mulk:

 “Indeed there is a Surah in the Qur’an of thirty Ayat, which intercedes for a man until he is forgiven. It is [Surah] Tabarak Alladhi Biyadihil-Mulk.”

From this hadith, we understand that reading surah Al Mulk will intercede for its reciter until Allah forgives all his/her sins.

Understanding the many blessings that Allah gave us and how he created the heavens and earth shows us the truth behind everything. Therefore, this surah is a great surah to read at night.
