Virtues of Quraan
If a woman dies during Hajj, is she a martyr?In the hadith of ‘A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), she said to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): O Messenger of Allah, do women have to do jihad? He said: “Yes, they have to do a jihad in which there is no fighting: Hajj and ‘umrah.” If a woman’s jihad is Hajj, does this mean that if a woman dies during her Hajj she is a martyr who died in Allah’s cause?
He memorised the Qur’an and forgot some verses of it; will he attain the reward of the one who memorised the Qur’an?If I have memorised the Qur’an and forget a few verses, and I die, what will be the outcome of the verses that I forgot? Will my father and mother wear the crown of dignity if I die having forgotten some verses?
Sleeper holding the Mushaf to ward off insomniaHolding the Mushaf to one’s chest in order to ward off harm from one’s body and soul is the same as wearing an amulet containing verses of the Qur’an. There is a considerable difference of opinion among the scholars as to whether that is permissible.
Recitation of Soorat al-Baqarah and the qareenDoes playing Soorat al-Baqarah out loud in the house on a recorder, computer or other player prevent the devils from entering the house for three days, or is it essential for one of the members of the household to read it from the Mushaf? Do the qareens or shayaateen who constantly remain with the members of the household not enter the house with them in which Soorat al-Baqarah is recited, or does reciting Soorat al-Baqarah not prevent the qareen from entering the house, because he is always with the person?
Ruling on counting hasanaat and telling others that whoever reads the entire Qur’an will have such and such of hasanaat, as many as the number of huroof [letters or words] in the Qur’anWhat is the ruling on counting hasanaat (rewards for good deeds), such as saying that the number of huroof [sing. harf] in the Qur’an, for example, is such and such, and there are ten hasanaat for each harf, and if a person reads the entire Qur’an, he will attain such and such – meaning 10 hasanaat x the number of verses in the Qur’an; or, for example, a shaykh recites a soorah of the Qur’an, and he has with him a hasanaat counter for the number of hasanaat for each harf that he recites?
An innovated way of reciting the first verses of the soorahs that begin with Haa’-MeemI have a question regarding the surahs that start with Ha-Mim... I have seen some Sufi people recite the first two ayat of each of these surahs and then move on to next Ha-Mim and then recite the first two ayat again and then moves on to next Ha-Mim and then first two ayat again etc. They say its some kind of protection from hellfire and they recite it every morning before fajr. Is there any proof? I don't find any evidences for this.
False messages about the special characteristics of some soorahs of the Qur’anI received the following message: Qur’anic benefits: for marital problems, Soorat al-Muzzamil; to have children, Soorat al-Anbiya’; for debt, Soorat al-‘Aadiyaat; for rizq (provision), Soorat al-Waaqi‘ah; to get married, Soorat al-Hajj; to rid oneself of waswaas, Soorat an-Naas; for one in prison and to find relief, Soorat Yoosuf; to protect a pregnancy, Soorat Maryam; to make childbirth easier, Soorat al-Inshiqaaq; to get a child to sleep, Soorat al-Ghaashiyah; for the evil eye, Soorat al-Falaq; for forgetfulness, Soorat ad-Duha. Is this true?
If someone listens to Soorat al-Mulk before going to sleep, will he receive the same reward as one who recites the soorah?What is the ruling on listening to Soorat al-Mulk, which will save one from the punishment of the grave, before going to sleep, for one who does not know how to read Qur’an? Will the reward for that be equal to the reward of one who recites it?
Warning about da‘eef hadiths that speak of the virtues of some soorahs of the Qur’anAre the virtues of soorahs mentioned on this website true? Does reciting Soorat ar-Rahmaan, Soorat al-Waaqi‘ah and Soorat al-Hadeed one after another guarantee a place for a person in Jannat al-Firdaws? Where can I find a sound, trustworthy source that mentions the virtues of the soorahs of the Qur’an? The website in question is (************).
Hadiths which speak of the virtues of Soorat Qaaf and Soorat al-Jumu‘ahAre there any particular virtues in reciting Soorat Qaaf and Soorat al-Jumu‘ah?
Could the religious texts which say that the parents of the one who memorises the Qur’an will be given a crown of dignity to wear include his grandfather too?Will the grandparents of the one who memorises the Qur’an be given a crown to wear along with his parents?
Is it proven that Allah, may He be exalted, and His Messengers will recite the Qur’an to the people of Paradise in Paradise?According to different scholars, Allah and the Prophets will recite the Qur’an in a melodious voice (i.e., they will recite the Qur’an in a very beautiful voice) in Paradise. Is there any proven report or any hadeeth that speaks of this?
If a person listens to Soorat al-Kahf on Friday, will he have the same reward as the one who reads the soorah?Does listening to Soorat al-Kahf on Friday bring the same reward as that of the one who reads it?
Ruling on learning the Qur’an without teaching itI memorised the Qur’an eight years ago, but I have not taught it to people, because I did not find anyone who called me to teach the Qur’an. Am I sinning because of that? What are the duties of the hafiz who has memorised the Qur’an?
What Surah Protects You from the Punishment of the Grave?It is said that reading Surat al-Mulk at night protects a person from the punishment of the grave. Can that be achieved if one recites it by day? Will it save us from the punishment of the grave even if we read it by day?
Is it permissible to have a favourite soorah of the Qur’aan that one recites and listens to a great deal because it has an impact on the heart?My question is whether it is okay for a person to have a favourite surah that they like to read/listen to and think about all the time? From a young age I have always loved Surah Al-Waqiah. I try to read the Quran as much as I can on a daily basis but am always drawn to Surah Al-Waqiah. It brings about all sorts of wonderful emotions such as love, hope and gratitude, but also extreme fear and terror of ending up in the fire. Whenever I am faced with a problem/stressful situation, the verses just automatically pop into my head and make me feel better. But I sometimes feel that maybe I am doing wrong by focusing on it and loving it more than other surahs.
Will the one who had memorised the Qur’aan remember on the Day of Resurrection the verses he had forgotten?ALlah said: يَوْمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ الإِنسَـنُ مَا سَعَى I believes that in the day of judgement we will remember our all deeds when we were living in this dunya so what if theres a HAFIDH/HAFIDHA who memorized the HOLY QUR'AN but he/she die in a state that he/she forgot the some or more words of ALLAH,what i mean is not forgot of acting the good deed and forbids the forbidden but what she memorized in holy qur'an some or more of ayah have not reviewed. And there's a hadith "Abdullah ibn Amr ibn Al-As may Allah bless him reported: The Prophet peace be upon him said, "The one who was devoted to the Qur'an will be told on the Day of Resurrection: `Recite and ascend (in ranks) as you used to recite when you were in the world. Your rank will be at the last Ayah you recite.''' [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi]. SO my Question is " IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAFIDH/ HAFIDHA to remember ALL the AYAH in the HOLY QUR'AN while ascending when in fact she/he died without fully reviewing the HOLY Qur'an. Allah said: " يَوْمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ الإِنسَـنُ مَا سَعَى " my second question is "what is the deepest meaning of this hadith " Narated By Anas ibn Malik Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu: Sayyidinah Rasoolullah Sallal Laahu Ta'ala Alayhi Wa Sallam said: The rewards of my people were presented before me, so much so that even the reward for removing a mote by a person from the mosque was presented to me. The sins of my people were also presented before me. I did not find a sin greater than that of a person forgetting the Qur'anic chapter or verse memorised by him.".
Reciting Surah al-Qadr After Finishing WudooI just got told by a friend that by reciting Surah al-Qadr the sins of 40 years will be forgiven? Also it should be read after the completion of Wudu (ablution)? I am aware that we should recite bismillah before starting Wudu and after finishing it we should recite the kalimah shahadat (testimony of faith). Please clear away this doubt for me since I am not sure if any of this is backed by authentic hadith or not.
Who are the people of the Qur’an who are the people of Allah and the closest to Him?My question is: what is the daily amount that the Muslim must commit to read of the Qur’an so that he may be among the people of Allah and the closest to Him? If he stops reading for a while, does that cancel out this virtue?
Reward for Reciting the Last 10 Verses of Surah Al ‘Imran: Authentic?One of my friends gave me a book in which I have found that anyone who recites the last ten verses of surah Al-‘Imran will get the same reward as a person who did worship all night. Is there any authentic hadith (prophetic report) to support this?
