Al Faatihah

Al Baqarah

Al Imran 


Surat al-Faatihah

 

The Authentic Ahaadeeth:

 

On the authority of ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with them, who said:

“While Jibreel was sitting with the Messenger of Allaah – ??? ???? ????     ????     – he heard a creaking from above, so he raised his head and said: ‘That is a gate in the heavens that opened today, it had never been opened before until today.’ An angel descended from it, he [Jibreel] said: ‘This is an angel that descended to Earth, he never descended before until today.’ He [the angel] extended the Salaam and said: ‘Rejoice for two lights that have been given to you, no Messenger was given them before you; the Faatihah (opening) of the Book, and the concluding verses of Surat al Baqarah, you will not read a word from them, except that you will be given it.’” [Collected by Muslim, Saheeh at Targheeb wat Tarheeb: 1456 – al Albaanee.]

The Messenger of Allaah – ??? ???? ???? ????     – said:

“The likes of it was not revealed in the Tawraat, or the Injeel, or the Zaboor or in the Furqaan. It is ‘the seven oft repeated’ and the Great Qur-aan that I was given.” [Collected by both al Bukhaaree and Muslim.]

The Messenger of Allaah – ??? ???? ???? ????     – stated:

“Allaah the Elevated said: ‘I have split the Salaat between Me and my servant into two parts, and My servant will receive what he asked for.’ When the servant says: {All praise is due to the Lord of the worlds} Allaah would say: ‘My servant has exalted me.’ When he says: {The Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy} Allaah would say: ‘My servant has praised Me.’ When he says: {the Only Owner of the day of Deen} Allaah would say: ‘My servant has glorified Me.’ When he says: {You alone do we worship, and from You alone do we seek aid} Allaah would say: ‘This is between Me and My slave, and for My slave is what he asks.’ When he says: {Guide us to the straight path, The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray.} Allaah would say: ‘That is for My servant and My servant shall get what he asks for.’” [Collected by Muslim ‘Saheeh at Targheeb wat Tarheeb’ :1455 – al Albaanee.]

On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al Khudree who said:

“We were on a journey and dismounted during travel. A girl approached us and said: ‘The leader of this area was stung by a scorpion, is there a Raaqee amongst you [one who reads Qur-aan over others as treatment].

A man from amongst us left with her, we did not know that he knew Ruqyaa, he treated the leader with Ruqyaa and he became well. The leader gave him thirty sheep and gave us all milk to drink. When he [the Raaqee] returned, we said to him: ‘Did you treat him with a specific Ruqyaa or is it that you used to practice it before?’ He responded: ‘I did not practice Ruqyaa except with ‘The Mother of the Book [i.e. al Faatihah].’ We said: ‘No one should do anything until we consult the Messenger of Allaah – ??? ???? ???? ????    .

When we reached Madeenah, we mentioned this to the Prophet – ??? ???? ????     ????     –, he said: ‘How did he know that it [al Faatihah] was [used as] Ruqyah? Divide the sheep amongst you and assign for me a share.’” [Collected by al Bukhaaree]

The Inauthentic Ahaadeeth

The Faatihah of the Book rewards like nothing else from the Qur-aan rewards. If the Faatihah was placed on one side of the scale, and the Qur-aan was put on the other side, the Faatihah would be better than the Qur-aan by seven folds. [Extremely weak – Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah: #3996]

The Faatihah of the Book is a cure from poison. [Extremely weak – Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah: #3997]

If you lay your side on your bed and read the Faatihah and Surat al Ikhlaas, you would be secure from everything except death. [Weak – Da’eef at Targheeb wat Tarheeb #374]

No servant of Allaah would read the Faatihah or Ayatul Kursee in a residence and be afflicted with ‘Ayn from the Jinn or mankind on that day. [Weak – Da’eef al Jaami’ as Sagheer #3952]

The Faatihah is a cure from every ailment. [Weak – Da’eef al Jaami’ as Sagheer #3951]

The Faatihah is equal to two thirds of the Qur-aan. [Weak – Da’eef al Jaami’ as Sagheer #3949]


Surat al-Baqarah

The Authentic Ahaadeeth:

On the Authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah –    ???? ???? ???? ????     – said:

“Do not turn your homes into graves, Indeed the Shaytaan flees from a house that Suratul Baqarah is read in.” [Collected by Muslim]

On the Authority of bu Mas’ood - may Allaah be pleased with him - the Prophet of Allaah –    ???? ???? ???? ????     – said:

“The last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah will suffice whoever reads them in a night.” [Collected by al Bukhaaree. T.N. Starting from Aman ar Rasool…it doesn’t mean the last two Ayaat literally as explained by ibn Hajar and others.]

On the authority of Abu Umaamah – may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah - ??? ???? ???? ????     – said:

“Whoever reads Ayatul Kursee after every obligatory prayer, nothing will prevent this person from entering Jannah except death.” [Collected by an Nasaa-ee and declared authentic by ibn Hibbaan and al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer #6464]

On the authority of an Nu’maan ibn Basheer, the Prophet –    ???? ???? ???? ????     – said:

“Indeed Allaah had written a book before He created the heavens and earth by two thousand years. He revealed two verses from it that with which He concluded Suratul Baqarah. Shaytaan will not draw close to a house in which they are read for three nights.” [Collected by at Tirmidhee and authenticated by al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer # 1799]

On the Authority of ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir:

“Read these last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah, for indeed my Lord has given them to me from underneath the Throne. [Collected by al Imaam Ahmad and at Tabaraanee. Declared authentic by al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ #1172]

On the authority of Abu Umaamah al Baahilee:

“Allaah’s greatest name - with which if He were called by, He would respond - is in three Ayaat in al Baqarah, Aal ‘Imraan and Taha.” [Declared authentic by al Albaanee: Refer to Saheeh al Jaami’ #979, al Jaami’ as Sahgeer: 1/99]

On the authority of Hudhayfah and Abu Dhar:

“I was given these final Ayaat from Suratul Baqarah from a treasure underneath the Throne, no prophet was given them before me.” [Collected by al Imaam Ahmad, at Tabaraanee and ibn Hibbaan, declared authentic by al Albaanee: refer to Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer # 1060]

On the authority of an Nawwaas ibn Sam’aan:

“The Qur-aan and its people, those who used to act upon it in the life of this world will come forth on the Day of Resurrection. At the head would be Suratul Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan, they would come like two shades, and two black clouds [to shade those who acted upon them], and two groups of birds in rows. They would argue on behalf of those who acted upon them.” [Collected by al Imaam Muslim, Ahmad and at Tirmidhee]

On the authority of Hudhayfah – may Allaah be pleased with him:

“We were favored over other people by three things; our rows [in prayer] are like the rows of the angels, all of earth was made as a place of worship for us, and its soil a purification if we cannot find water, and I was given these last Ayaat from Suratul Baqarah from a treasure underneath the Throne, no prophet was given them before me.” [Collected by Muslim, Ahmad and an Nasaa-ee, declared authentic by al Albaanee: Saheeh al Jaam’ as Sagheer #4223]

 The Inauthentic Ahaadeeth

Two Ayaat – they are the Qur-aan, they will intercede, they are from what Allaah loves, the two Ayaat at the end of Suratul Baqarah. [Weak - refer to Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah #154]

Whoever reads Suratul Baqarah will be given a crown to wear on his head in Jannah. [Fabricated - Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah # 4633]

Indeed everything has a high point, and indeed the high point of the Qur-aan is Suratul Baqarah. Whoever reads it in his home at night, the Shaytaan will not enter his home for three nights. And whoever reads it in his home during the day, the Shaytaan will not enter it for three days. [Fabricated - Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah: #1349]

Four were sent down from a treasure underneath the Throne: The mother of the Book [i.e al Faatihah], Ayatul Kursee, the last Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah and al Kawthar. [Inauthentic: Da’eef al Jaami’: #747]

I was given Suratul Baqarah from the first revelation. I was given Taha, at Tawaseen and al Hawameem from the tablets of Musa. I was given al Faatihah and the last Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah from underneath the Throne… [Inauthentic: Da’eef al Jaami: # 950]

The best of the Qur-aan is Suratul Baqarah, and the greatest Ayah in it is Ayatul Kursee, and indeed the Shaytaan exits a house where he hears Suratul Baqarah being recited. [Inauthentic: Al Jaami’ as Sagheer: # 1034]

The best Surah in the Qur-aan is Suratul Baqarah, and the best Ayah in the Qur-aan is Ayatul Kursee. [Inauthentic: Da’eef al Jaami’: # 1045]

Indeed Allaah conluded Suratul Baqarah with two Ayaat that I was given from a treasure beneath the Throne. So learn these Ayaat and teach them to your women and children, for indeed they are a prayer, Qur-aan and Du’aa. [Inauthentic: Da’eef al Jaami’ #1601]

The best of mankind is Adam, and the best of the Arabs is Muhammad, and the best of the Romans is Suhayb, and the best of the Persians is Salmaan, and the best of the Habashees is Bilaal….and the best of speech is the Qur-aan, and the best of the Qur-aan is Suratul Baqarah, and the best of Suratul Baqarah is Ayatul Kursee, indeed it has five words in it, with every word is fifty blessings. [Fabricated: Da’eef al Jaami’ #3326, as Silsilah ad Da’eefah #3728]

When one of you dies, do not presume that he is dead. Rush him to his grave and read the opening of the Book [al Faatihah] on his head and the last verses of Suratul Baqarah on his feet. [Very weak: As Silsilah ad Da’eefah: #4140]


Surat al-Imraan


The Authentic Ahaadeeth:

 

Abu Umaamah al Baahilee stated: I heard the Messenger of Allaah –    ???? ???? ????     ????     – saying:

“Read the Qur-aan, for indeed it will come as an intercessor for those who read it in the Day of Resurrection. Read the two Surahs; Al Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan, for indeed they will both come on the Day of Resurrection as if they were two clouds or two shades or an evidence, arguing for those who memorize them. Read Surat al Baqarah, for indeed reading it is a blessing and leaving it is a loss, and magicians cannot harm those who read them. [Collected by al Imaam Muslim]

 
The Inauthentic Ahaadeeth
 

Whoever reads the Surah in which the family of ‘Imraan is mentioned, Allaah and his angels would mention that person until the sun sets. [Fabricated - Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah # 415]

 

Allaah’s greatest name - the one which if He were called by He would respond – is in this Ayah from Aal ‘Imraan: {Say (O Muhammad): "O Allaah! Possessor of the kingdom, You give the kingdom to whom You will} [Inauthentic - Silsilat al Ahaadeeth ad Da’eefah # 415]

 

Whoever reads the end of Aal ‘Imraan at night would have it written for him that he stood the whole night in prayer. [Inauthentic: Mishkaat al Masaabeeh: #2112]. [Saheeh wa Da’eef al Jaami’ as Sagheer: 1/1245]

 

Whoever reads Aal ‘Imraan on Jum’ah, the angels will pray for him until nightfall. [Inauthentic: Mishkaat al Masaabeeh: #2113]

 

No one riding on a difficult beast and says this in the animals ear : { Do they seek other than the religion of Allaah, while to Him submitted all creatures in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly. And to Him shall they all be returned. } except that it will stop with the permission of Allaah. [Inauthentic: Da’eef al Kalim at Tayyib: #177]

 

Allaah will not make unsuccessful, a servant who gets up in the middle of the night and begins his prayer with al Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan. What a great treasure for a person; al Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan. [Da’eef al Jaami’ as Sagheer: #5063]
