Surah Yaseen is one of the surahs that carries many meanings to all Muslims, it is mainly said that reciting it grants wishes in addition to many other benefits that we will discover here.
Surah Yaseen was revealed in mecca, therefore it is called a Makki surah, it only has 83 verses, and it’s the surah number 36 in the Quran. And you will find it in the Juz number 23.
What are the benefits of reading surah Yaseen?
Here are a few of the many benefits that you will get from reading surah Yaseen.
1- The Heart of the Quran.
Our Prophet Muhammad said:
“Without a doubt, everything shows at least a bit of kindness, and the core of the Quran is Yaseen Surah. I might want that it be in the core of each adherent of my ummah.”
This hadith shows the importance of reading surah Yaseen, some of which is the heart of the Quran. And our prophet urges us to read it. Surah Yaseen gives relief and peace of mind to anyone who reads it. You will gain many rewards from reading surah Yaseen. So, from this hadith we get the significance of this surah and that it is the core of the Quran that brings many rewards to us by just reading it.
2- Reading surah Yaseen erases our sins.
Another thing that our prophet taught us about reading surah Yaseen we see in the following hadith:
“Whoever discussed Surah Yaseen in the late evening looking for Allah’s endorsement, Allah would excuse him.”
Reading surah Yaseen in the middle of the night and asking for the help of Allah and wishing for forgiveness and mercy, Allah will reward us by answering our calls. What’s more important is to read surah Yaseen with faith that Allah will help us.
Reading the Quran generally eases the mind and gives us peace. Imagine if you read surah Yaseen with complete confidence that God will forgive us, how will you feel afterward? You will be fully relieved.
So, whatever you do and the mistakes or sins you commit, just be sure to ask God for forgiveness and try your best to stay away from repeating the same mistake again. Allah will forgive, be confident of that.
3- Carries many rewards to us.
There is another hadith telling us about the rewards that reading surah Yaseen brings us, here it is:
“Whoever pursues Surah Yaseen, Allah rewards him that is equivalent to that of perusing the entire Quran.”
The hadith doesn’t require any explanation, reading surah Yaseen is equivalent to reading the entire Quran. This reward gives you more than you can ever imagine. So, make sure to read surah Yaseen daily, and you shall be rewarded.
The benefits of reading surah Yaseen 7 times.
It is said that reciting surah Yaseen seven times every day will erase your debt.
What are the benefits of reading surah Yaseen every day?
There are many benefits of reading the Quran and here are some of the benefits of reading surah Yaseen every day.
1- Eases the Death:
If you lost beloved ones make sure to read surah Yaseen for them, our prophet talked about the benefits of reading Surah Yaseen for the ones we lost and said:
“Recount Yaseen on the individuals who are biting the dust.” — Sunan Abi Dawud
The people we lose need comfort and our help and prayers for them, reading surah Yaseen help them gain the help they need.
2- Solves our life problems:
Reading surah Yaseen constantly helps us and gives us the courage to face our problems and not fear them. We have our faith in Allah that we will overcome this problem we are facing now and that what shall happen as long as we have faith, and understand that this is just a test that we will pass one way or another with the help of Allah.
3- Satisfies the Needs:
According to narrators, our prophet said that reading surah Yaseen grants our wishes, here is the hadith:
“Whoever pursues Surah Yaseen toward the start of the day, every one of his requirements for that day would be satisfied.”
Whenever we need Allah’s help we should turn to the Quran, ask God to help us, and grant our wishes. There is no shame in showing God our weakness. The shame is that we have Allah and we choose to ask for human help. No one can help us achieve our dreams and fulfill our wishes but Allah. And that’s what you should have faith in; even if you think that what you’re wishing for is impossible. Allah will always be here for us and will grant us what we wish for.
4- Grant wishes.
One of the Makki surahs is surah Yaseen, with 83 verses. Surah Yaseen affects the soul strongly, and as Allah says in the holy book of the Quran “We send down (stage by stage) in the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe: to the unjust it causes nothing but loss after loss.”
In the previous ayah, Allah told us that one of the benefits of reading the Quran is that it brings us Allah’s mercy and heals our souls from the sins we commit.
And as the prophet taught us that some of the Quran surahs are for healing our souls and heart from the sins we make. That’s the primary goal of reading those surahs. A great example of these surahs is surah Yaseen.
One of the benefits of reading surah Yaseen every day is for fulfilling our wishes. As the prophet, Muhammad said, “One who recites Surah Yaseen in the morning, Allah Almighty will be responsible for fulfilling all his needs.”
In Surah Al- Balad Allah says: “We have certainly created man into hardship”
Life is not easy and we will always face obstacles and hardships, reciting the Quran and having faith remind us that life is a test. Allah didn’t create us to do nothing but enjoy life, God wants us to ask for help.
We shall get the help we need when we recite surah Yaseen every morning, by always having faith in Allah and not letting anything stop in the way or make us suspicious of whether God will grant our wishes or not. The key to getting your wishes is always to have faith in Allah.
How long does it take to read Surah Yaseen?
Since Surah Yaseen only contains 83 verses it will only take 10 minutes or less to finish it.
Surah Yaseen benefits from Hadeeth.
Here are some of the hadiths about the benefits of reading surah Yasin every day. We will mention them here, however, we warn you from believing anything that you hear. You should always make sure that the hadith is true and supported before you start believing it.
“Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Quran is Ya-Sin; whoever reads it, it is as if he has read the Quran ten times.”
The Prophet (PBUH) also said:
“Whoever reads Surah Ya-Sin in one night will be forgiven in the morning.”
Another Hadith reads:
“Whoever continues to read it every night then dies, will die as a shahid (martyr).”
One more example is a Hadith that says:
“Whoever enters the graveyard and reads Surah Ya-Sin, their (punishment) will be reduced that day, and he will have hasanat (reward) equal to the number of people in the graveyard.”
Benefits of Surah Yaseen for marriage.
We have discussed many benefits of reading surah Yaseen, and another benefit that we will talk about now is its benefits for marriage. So far we have seen that reciting surah Yaseen helps us achieve our goals and needs.
Someone needs might be getting married, which is something essential in life.

Reading Surah Yasin 41 times benefits.
Reading surah Yaseen 41 times was not mentioned in the Quran or sunnah, you can read it as much as you want, but don’t fall for the bedah of reading it 41 times.
Benefits of Reading Surah Yaseen after Fajr.
From all we read so far we know that reading surah Yaseen has many benefits even more than we can count. Reading Surah Yaseen in the fajr or in the morning even has more benefits to us. But what are those benefits of reading surah Yaseen after Fajr or in the morning?
Besides all the benefits that we have seen so far, a hadith mentioned two benefits of reading surah Yaseen after Fajr or morning, which are:
· Allah accepts one’s Dua and fulfills his/ her needs.
As the Prophet Muhammad said, “One who recites Surah Yaseen in the morning, Allah Almighty will be responsible for fulfilling all his needs.”
That’s why you should read surah Yaseen every morning or after praying Fajr, and that’s what all Muslims should do.
· Allah forgives our sins.
When reading surah Yaseen Allah will forgive us for the wrong things we did. Prophet Muhammad said: “One who recites Surah Yaseen in the morning or night, Allah Almighty would remove all his sins.”

What does surah Yaseen talk about?
In surah, Yasin Allah tells us some signs of the judgment day. Also in surah al-Fatir, Allah shows us that people who didn’t believe in Allah’s messengers claim that they would have if Allah had sent them real messengers.
In surah, Yasin Allah addresses this matter saying that the disbelievers lie to themselves about the true reason why they chose to not believe in god’s prophet.
No matter what the reasons they say, they would never believe in Allah and the messengers because they don’t really want to follow the prophet’s guidance. If they did have any sincerity to believe in what they can’t see they would have followed the prophet’s guidance.
One of the examples that we see in surah Yasin is the example of the town where God sent three messengers to guide the townspeople. And even with three messengers, they chose not to believe in them.
Even though they did have one of their own telling them that those messengers are telling the truth and that the message is valid. Despite all of this guidance and reasons for them to believe they chose not to. They refused to open their hearts to the messengers and the man from the town.
In addition to not believing any of that, they killed the man for accepting and believing in Allah’s messengers.
The lesson from the Story
The lesson we learn from this story is that when people choose to not believe in Allah’s message they will simply won’t. Because they choose to cover their ears and look away from the truth, and nothing will change that.
It’s all because of human arrogance, no matter how many messengers Allah sends them and no matter what miracles they have, disbelievers will always choose to not believe. Actually, this only pushes them further in their defiance.
When it comes to believers, they try their best to spread the truth and sacrifice what they have in the way to achieving their goals. Nevertheless, they have no regrets for choosing to believe in Allah, no matter what is the cost they pay.
Allah will reward believers for whatever they sacrifice in the afterlife, and the reward will be much better than they could ever imagine. That is what Yasin surah teaches from the story of the man who was killed for believing in Allah.
Another lesson from the Yasin surah is that Allah created everything around us for our sake. This includes the creation of the water, and how god created everything in pairs to allow for reproduction. In addition to the courses of the Sun and the Moon, and the buoyancy of ships in the water.
The beginning of surah Yasin focuses on the believers and disbelievers with an example of the town to teach us the lesson. But that’s not the only thing the Yaseen surah teaches us. The rest of surah Yaseen reveals Allah’s powers and the ability to create everything.
Also from the surah, we have some insight on the judgment day and what will happen to the believers and disbelievers.
Lessons From Surah Yaseen
What we learn from surah Yaseen is that God created everything around us for our own benefits, to support our needs. That’s why Allah created the earth.
However, people neglect the main reason why God created us, which is worshiping; we should thank Allah for everything we have, like being able to see, speak, and feel. We should thank Allah for everything we have. Ask God for forgiveness and mercy.
We shouldn’t think that what we have means that Allah doesn’t exist; it’s all signs of Allah’s existence. So that we understand our purpose, and not let the live pleasures distract us from the truth and worshiping Allah.
That is what we learn from surah Yaseen, to understand what will happen to the believers and disbelievers in the afterlife.
In the end, the disbelievers will understand that they could never justify the reason behind disbelieving. Even their own limbs will testify against them.
What is the message of Surah Yasin?
Like the other Meccan surahs, yasin focuses on the issue of Tawheed Oneness of God. Additionally our lives after death. And warnings to Meccan’s for not believing Allah prophet and the prophet message to them.
The name of the surah comes from the first two Arabic alphabets which are ya and seen. The letters that come in the beginning of any Quran surah are called Mystery Abbreviated Letters OR Hurrof Al.
According to Abu Hurayrah the Messenger of God said:
مَنْ قَرَأَ يس فِي لَيْلَةٍ أَصْبَحَ مَغْفُورًا لَهُ، وَمَنْ قَرَأَ حم الَّتِي يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا الدُّخَانُ أَصْبَحَ مَغْفُورًا لَه
“Whoever recites Yaseen in the night, will wake up forgiven by the Grace of God, and whoever recites Ha Mim in which Dukhan/Smoke is mentioned, by the Grace of God, will wake up forgiven.”
According to Anas, God’s Messenger said, “Everything has a heart and the heart of the Holy Quran is Yaseen. God will record anyone who recites Yaseen as having recited the Holy Quran ten times.”
Moreover, Maqil ibn Yasaar Muzani reported the Prophet as saying, “If anyone recites Yasin for God’s pleasure, his past sins will be pardoned; so recite it on those who are dying.
Ibn Hibban reported in his Sahih that Jundub bin Abdullah said, “The Messenger of God said:
مَنْ قَرَأَ يس فِي لَيْلَةٍ ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ اللهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ غُفِرَ لَه
“Whoever recites Yaseen in the night, seeking the Face of God, will be forgiven”
Also the prophet teaches us that one of the benefits of reading surah yaseen on Friday in addition to surah Saffat and then begging god to fulfill our wishes, it will be fulfilled.
Surah Yaseen English translation.
Here’s the english translation from verse number 1 to the verse number 35.
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
By the Quran, full of Wisdom,-
Thou art indeed one of the messengers,
On a Straight Way.
It is a Revelation sent down by (Him), the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
In order that thou mayest admonish a people, whose fathers had received no admonition, and who therefore remain heedless (of the Signs of Allah).
The Word is proved true against the greater part of them: for they do not believe.
We have put yokes round their necks right up to their chins so that their heads are forced up (and they cannot see).
And We have put a bar in front of them and a bar behind them, and further, We have covered them up; so that they cannot see.
The same is it to them whether thou admonish them or thou do not admonish them: they will not believe.
Thou canst but admonish such a one as follows the Message and fears the (Lord) Most Gracious, unseen: give such a one, therefore, good tidings, of Forgiveness and a Reward most generous.
Verily We shall give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before and that which they leave behind, and of all things have We taken account in a clear Book (of evidence).
Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came messengers to it.
When We (first) sent to them two messengers, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, “Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you.”
The (people) said: “Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie.”
They said: “Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you:
“And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message.”
The (people) said: “for us, we augur an evil omen from you: if ye desist not, we will certainly stone you. And a grievous punishment indeed will be inflicted on you by us.”
They said: “Your evil omens are with yourselves: (deem ye this an evil omen). If ye are admonished? Nay, but ye are a people transgressing all bounds!”
Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, “O my people! Obey the messengers:
“Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance.
“It would not be reasonable in me if I did not serve Him Who created me, and to Whom ye shall (all) be brought back.
“Shall I take (other) gods besides Him? If (Allah) Most Gracious should intend some adversity for me, of no use whatever will be their intercession for me, nor can they deliver me.
“I would indeed if I were to do so, be in manifest Error.
“For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!”
It was said: “Enter thou the Garden.” He said: “Ah me! Would that my People knew (what I know)!-
“For that, my Lord has granted me Forgiveness and has enrolled me among those held in honour!”
And We sent not down against his People, after him, any hosts from heaven, nor was it needful for Us so to do.
It was no more than a single mighty Blast, and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent.
Ah! Alas for (My) Servants! There comes not a messenger to them but they mock him!
See they not how many generations before them we destroyed? Not to them will they return:
But each one of them all – will be brought before Us (for judgment).
A Sign for them is the earth that is dead: We do give it life and produce grain therefrom, of which ye do eat.
And We produce therein orchard with date-palms and vines, and We cause springs to gush forth therein:
That they may enjoy the fruits of this (artistry): It was not their hands that made this: will they not then give thanks?
