Question: (1) Which is the greatest yah of the Qurn? (2) Which srah will protect one from the Dajjl? (3) Which srah is equivalent to one-third of the Qurn? (4) What is the heart of the Qurn?

 

Answer: (1) Hadrat Ubay ibn Kab said: The Messenger of Allh said (to me), Oh Abul-Mundhir! Do you know which yah of the Book of Allh is the greatest according to you? I said, Allh and His Apostle know best. He said, Oh Abul-Mundhir! Do you know which yah of the Book of Allh is the greatest according to you? I said, Allh: There is no deity except Him, the Ever-living, the Ever-subsisting. Then he struck my chest with his hand and said, Oh Abul-Mundhir, may learning welcome thee with cheers! [Muslim, Mishkt (Al-Hadis, III:675)] (The greatest yah of Qurn is yat-ul-Kursi, the Verse of the Throne, 2:255.)

(2) Hadrat Abu ad-Dard reported that the Messenger of Allh said: Whoever commits to memory ten verses from the beginning of Srah al-Kahf (18) will be protected from Dajjl. [Muslim, Mishkt (Al-Hadis, III:677)]

(3) Same reported that the Messenger of Allh asked: Will not any of you be able to read one-third of the Qurn in one night? They replied, And how can he read one-third of the Qurn? He said: Say: He is Allh the One (Srah Ikhls- 112): it will be equivalent to one-third of the Qurn. [Muslim, Bukhari from Abu Sad, Mishkt (Al-Hadis, III:678)]

(4) Hadrat Anas reported that the Messenger of Allh said: There is certainly a heart for everything and the heart of the Qurn is Y Sn (Srah 36); and whoso reads Y Sn, Allh writes for him in exchange of its reading (the rewards of) the reading of the (whole) Qurn ten times. [Tirmidhi, Drimi, Mishkt (Al-Hadis, III:684)]
