The Great Benefits, Rewards and Virtues of Surah Al-Fatiha
The Holy Quran is the 4th and final Sacred Book of Allah SWT, which He revealed on His Last Messenger, Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ. It is ultimate source of guidance for believers in the Religion of Islam. It consists of many sections which address religious and secular issues concerning life. Although, all the revelations of this Blessed Manuscript serve as a means of enlightenment, but some of its chapters are considered more significant than others because of some particular reasons. Surah Al-Fatiha is one of those few episodes of Quran, which holds special status, and is even recalled by Allah Almighty in these words:
Chapter of Quran
“And We have certainly given you, [O Muhammad], seven of the often repeated [verses] and the great Qur’an.” [Quran, 15: 87]
The above mentioned Ayah shows that God, the Exalted has regarded this Surah so high that it is mentioned along with the rest of the entire Quranic revelations. The phrase “Seven of the often repeated verses” also describes the great importance of this chapter, as it is the essential part of Daily Prayers and has to be recited every day.
Surah Fatiha Chapter of Quran
In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. [All] praise is [due] to Allah , Lord of the worlds. The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. It is You we worship and You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path .The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.
Background And Meaning
It is the Makki Surah of the Holy Quran, which means that it was discovered on the Apostle ﷺ of God while He was in Makkah, i.e. before migration to Madina. It was initially the 5th chapter to be disclosed but after Furqan e Hameed was assembled together, it was put at the beginning. Al-Fatiha itself means “The Opening” as this chapter comes right at the start of the Holy Book and serves as a Gateway to read Quran Majeed further. Moreover, it also serves as the starting of Salah. It also has the honor of being the very first Surah that is made known completely. Although it consists of 7 Ayats only, but it still explains the Veneration of the Almighty in a very comprehensive fashion and also is a great means of supplication of asking Allah for keeping one on the right path.
Different Names of Surah Al-Fatiha
This chapter of Furqan e Hameed has so many great implications accumulated in it that it is known by more than one or two names. Some of the secondary identities of Surah Fatiha are:
1. Umm ul-Quran/Kitab (Mother of the Quran/Book): Abu Hurairah (R.A) narrated the Messenger ﷺ of Allah saying as:
“The chapter commencing with “All praises and thanks are due to Allah the Lord of the Worlds” is the Mother of the Quran, the Mother of the Book, the Seven Oft Repeated Verses and the Great Quran.” (Tirmidhi)
Hence, it indeed is the Mother of Quran as Rasulullah ﷺ Himself has given it that name. Moreover, the Arabs used to name anything that summarizes anything well or consists of the most important part of some matter as Umm or Mother.
2. Sab’ul-Mathani (The Seven Oft Repeated Verses): It is also named so because its seven verses are regularly recited at the start of every rakaah of the prayer.
3. Al-Hamd (Praises to Allah): It is also named Al-Hamd, the Commendation, as it contains the Adoration of the Almighty Lord.
4. As-Salah (The Prayer): It is named as the Entreaty because its reading is a requirement for the legality of the daily prayers.
5. Ash-Shifa (The Cure): Abu Sa’id reported that the Messenger ﷺ of Allah said:
“The Opening of the Book is a cure to every poison.” (Ad-Darimi)
6. Ar-Ruqyah (the Spiritual Cure): Abu Sa’id reported that after he had recited it to cure a person who had been bitten by a scorpion, the Apostle ﷺ of God asked him,
“…And what made you to know that it was a ruqya.” (Bukhari)
That is why it is highly advised to recite Surah Fatiha and for the sick ones.
7. Asas al-Quran (the Basis of Quran): It is known by this name as Surah Fatiha contains the most essential fundamental teachings of Islam, i.e. Admiration of One Allah SWT.
Reciting Surah Al-Fatiha in Daily Prayers
It is the only Chapter of the Holy Quran that has got the reputation of being an indispensable part of Namaz, which is to be recited regularly in every Rakah of Salah.
Ubadah bin As-Samit reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ saying as:
“Whoever does not recite Surat Al-Fatihah in his prayer, his prayer is invalid. (Bukhari)
It means that without reading these seven verses of the Sacred Scripture, one`s prayer is considered void, and it does not count.
Virtues of Surah Al-Fatiha
Some of the greatest qualities that this chapter of Furqan e Hameed contains are:
i) Being The Greatest Surah of The Holy Quran
It is considered as the most influential chapter of the Hallowed Volume of God Almighty, as it consists of the almost the complete essence of the Islamic faith, i.e. Believing and Admiring the Exalted One, and asking Him only for gaining rectitude in life.
Abu Sa’ad ibn Al-Mu’alla narrated the Apostle ﷺ of Allah saying as:
“…I will teach a Surah which is the greatest Surah in the Quran before you leave the Masjid.’ Then he took hold of my hand and when he intended to leave [the Masjid], I asked him, “Did you not say that you would teach me a Surah which is the greatest Surah in the Qur’an?” He replied, ‘Yes. It is [the Surah commencing with], “All praise and thanks are due to Allah.” It is the Seven Oft-Repeated verses and the Great Qur’an that has been given to me.’ “(Ahmad)
The above stated Hadith shows that the Holy Prophet ﷺ has called this Surah as the Utmost section of the Holy Quran.
ii) Resulting in Answering Of One`s Prayer By Allah SWT
Surah Al-Fatiha is a great form of supplication to the Almighty God. There are some recitations like sending Durood e Pak on Rasulullah ﷺ, which result in acceptance of entreaty at once. Umm ul-Quran is also such narration that leads towards getting the attention of Allah SWT while praying to Him:
Abu Hurairah (R.A) reported that the Holy Prophet ﷺ once said:
“Allah, the Glorious and Exalted said, “I have divided the prayer between Myself and my servant equally and My servant shall be granted what he asked for.” Therefore, when the servant says, ‘All praises and thanks are due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds’, Allah says, ‘My servant has praised Me.’ When he says, ’The All-Merciful, the Most Merciful, ‘Allah says, ‘My servant has extolled Me.’ When he says, ‘Master of the Day of Judgment,’ Allah says, ‘My servant has glorified Me.’ When he says, ‘You Alone we worship and Your aid Alone do we seek,’ Allah says, ‘this is between Me and My servant and My servant shall have what he requested.’ When he says, ‘Guide us to the Straight Path, the Path of those whom You have favored, not [the path] of those who have earned [Your] anger, nor of those who have gone astray,’ Allah says, ‘this is for My servant and My servant shall have what he asked for.’ “(Muslim)
It means that Surah Al-Fatiha is a very special kind of appeal to the Gracious God, which causes Him to answer His servant on every step of this recital.
iii) Being Part Of Two Lights Given to the Holy Prophet ﷺ
Ibn Abbas (R.A) narrated the Messenger ﷺ of Allah saying as:
“While the Messenger ﷺ of Allah was sitting with Jibril he heard a creaking sound above him. Jibril looked up and said, “This is [the sound of] a gate that has been opened in heaven today and has never been previously opened.” Then an Angel descended through it and came to the Prophet ﷺ and said, ‘Rejoice in the good news of two lights that have been given to you such as no Prophet before you has been given. [They are] Surah Al-Fatihah and the concluding [two] verses of Surah Al-Baqarah. You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings they contain.’ “
It shows that Surah Al-Fatiha, among the last two Ayats of Surah Baqarah is the great source of enlightenment that Allah SWT has only given to the Ummah (Followers) of Rasulullah ﷺ, which has the greatest effect in the attainment of Allah`s favors.
iv) Being the Most Noble Part of Quran
Anas (R.A) reported the Holy Prophet ﷺ saying as:
“Should I not inform you of the most noble and excellent part of the Quran?” He then recited “All praise and thanks are due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds” (An Nisai)
It means that Surah Al-Fatiha is the most outstanding section of Furqan e Hameed, which contains the best form of Islamic teachings in concise form.
In short, Surah Al-Fatiha is not any normal chapter of the Holy Quran, rather it is the fundamental part of the Religion of Peace, being essential segment of Salah, without which it is not acceptable, containing the Veneration of God in most desirable manner, and last but not least, it serves as a great purpose of asking the Almighty for granting one attainment of the right path.

In the name of Allah (God), the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
1. Ya Sin.
By the Qur’an, full of Wisdom,
Thou art indeed one of the apostles,
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 apostles to it.
When We (first) sent to them two apostles, 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 apostles:
“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 an apostle 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?
Glory to Allah, Who created in pairs all things that the earth produces, as well as their own (human) kind and (other) things of which they have no knowledge.
And a Sign for them is the Night: We withdraw therefrom the Day, and behold they are plunged in darkness;
And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.
And the Moon,- We have measured for her mansions (to traverse) till she returns like the old (and withered) lower part of a date-stalk.
It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law).
And a Sign for them is that We bore their race (through the Flood) in the loaded Ark;
And We have created for them similar (vessels) on which they ride.
If it were Our Will, We could drown them: then would there be no helper (to hear their cry), nor could they be delivered,
Except by way of Mercy from Us, and by way of (world) convenience (to serve them) for a time.
When they are told, “Fear ye that which is before you and that which will be after you, in order that ye may receive Mercy,” (they turn back).
Not a Sign comes to them from among the Signs of their Lord, but they turn away therefrom.
And when they are told, “Spend ye of (the bounties) with which Allah has provided you,” the Unbelievers say to those who believe: “Shall we then feed those whom, if Allah had so willed, He would have fed, (Himself)?- Ye are in nothing but manifest error.”
Further, they say, “When will this promise (come to pass), if what ye say is true?”
They will not (have to) wait for aught but a single Blast: it will seize them while they are yet disputing among themselves!
No (chance) will they then have, by will, to dispose (of their affairs), nor to return to their own people!
The trumpet shall be sounded, when behold! from the sepulchres (men) will rush forth to their Lord!
They will say: “Ah! Woe unto us! Who hath raised us up from our beds of repose?”… (A voice will say:) “This is what ((Allah)) Most Gracious had promised. And true was the word of the apostles!”
It will be no more than a single Blast, when lo! they will all be brought up before Us!
Then, on that Day, not a soul will be wronged in the least, and ye shall but be repaid the meeds of your past Deeds.
Verily the Companions of the Garden shall that Day have joy in all that they do;
They and their associates will be in groves of (cool) shade, reclining on Thrones (of dignity);
(Every) fruit (enjoyment) will be there for them; they shall have whatever they call for;
“Peace!” – a word (of salutation) from a Lord Most Merciful!
“And O ye in sin! Get ye apart this Day!
“Did I not enjoin on you, O ye Children of Adam, that ye should not worship Satan; for that he was to you an enemy avowed?
“And that ye should worship Me, (for that) this was the Straight Way?
“But he did lead astray a great multitude of you. Did ye not, then, understand?
“This is the Hell of which ye were (repeatedly) warned!
“Embrace ye the (fire) this Day, for that ye (persistently) rejected (Truth).”
That Day shall We set a seal on their mouths. But their hands will speak to us, and their feet bear witness, to all that they did.
If it had been our Will, We could surely have blotted out their eyes; then should they have run about groping for the Path, but how could they have seen?
And if it had been Our Will, We could have transformed them (to remain) in their places; then should they have been unable to move about, nor could they have returned (after error).
If We grant long life to any, We cause him to be reversed in nature: Will they not then understand?
We have not instructed the (Prophet) in Poetry, nor is it meet for him: this is no less than a Message and a Qur’an making things clear:
That it may give admonition to any (who are) alive, and that the charge may be proved against those who reject (Truth).
See they not that it is We Who have created for them – among the things which Our hands have fashioned – cattle, which are under their dominion?
And that We have subjected them to their (use)? of them some do carry them and some they eat:
And they have (other) profits from them (besides), and they get (milk) to drink. Will they not then be grateful?
Yet they take (for worship) gods other than Allah, (hoping) that they might be helped!
They have not the power to help them: but they will be brought up (before Our Judgment-seat) as a troop (to be condemned).
Let not their speech, then, grieve thee. Verily We know what they hide as well as what they disclose.
Doth not man see that it is We Who created him from sperm? yet behold! he (stands forth) as an open adversary!
And he makes comparisons for Us, and forgets his own (origin and) Creation: He says, “Who can give life to (dry) bones and decomposed ones (at that)?”
Say, “He will give them life Who created them for the first time! for He is Well-versed in every kind of creation!
“The same Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, when behold! ye kindle therewith (your own fires)!
“Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like thereof?” – Yea, indeed! for He is the Creator Supreme, of skill and knowledge (infinite)!
Verily, when He intends a thing, His Command is, “be”, and it is!
So glory to Him in Whose hands is the dominion of all things: and to Him will ye be all brought back.
Dua After Recite Surah Yaseen
Quran is the greatest marvel and blessing of Allah Almighty, which He has bestowed upon mankind. In this Book, a person can find solution to any problem and answer to all the questions provided that a person views and analyzes it objectively. It carries numerous intellectual, political, social, moral and guidelines related to every aspect of life for a non-believer, however, for a believer it contains greater promises.
For a believer there is reward against each word of Quran that is recited. This recitation of The Holy Quran in addition to adding religious reward also influences on the life of a person in numerous ways. Moreover, besides the general text of Quran, there are special and more reverend chapters compared to others. One of such parts of Quran is the Surah Yaseen.
Daily Recite Surah e Yaseen
Surah Yaseen is one of the most reverend Surah of Quran and Muslims all over the world memorize it, recite it, and listen to its recitation with great respect and sanctity. There is a reason behind the greater prestige of Surah Yaseen as it is mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in His various hadiths entailing numerous benefits of its recitation. The lines below discuss the major benefits of reciting Surah Yaseen.
1. The Heart Of Quran:
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in one of His hadiths in the following way:
“Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Quran is Yaseen. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people.” (Tafsir-al- Sabuni Vol.2)
From this hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) it becomes clear that like all other things that have a heart, Quran also has a heart and it is Sura Yasin. From this a person can only guess the importance of Yaseen, as if a single word from Quran carries great reward then the heart is surely to reward more and greater than that. Moreover, the other thing that becomes clear from this hadith is the fact that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) showed His likeness for the memorization or remembrance of Yaseen by His followers.
2. Grand Reward:
Another great advantage or benefit of reciting Sura Yaseen is mentioned in the following hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):
“Whoever recites Yaseen once, Allah will record the reward of reciting the Quran ten times.” (Tirmidhi 2812/A)
This hadith does not require any explanation as it is clear from it that reading Yaseen once is equivalent to reciting of Quran ten times. Therefore, all the more reasons for a Muslim to memorize Surah Yaseen so that it can be read couple of times in a day to get grand rewards the worth of which is even beyond human comprehension.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:
“Indeed in the Noble Quran there is a Surah, for its reading will intercede and will be a means of forgiveness for listener. Listen carefully, it is Surah Yaseen, in the Torah it is called Muimmah.”
It was enquired, “O’ Messenger of Allah, what is Muimmah?”
Prophet (PBUH) replied:
“It contains for its reader the benefits of this world, it removes from him the dread of the next life, and it is called Dafiah and Qadhiyah.”
It was asked again, “How is this Surah Dafiah and Qadiyah?”
Prophet (PBUH) replied:
“It takes away from its reader all afflictions and fulfills his need. Whoever recites it, it will be made equal to twenty pilgrimages. Whoever shall listen to it, it will be as thousand dinars, which he has given as charity in the path of Allah. And whoever shall write it and then drink it, it will enter into his heart a thousand cures, a thousand radiant lights, a thousand times more increase in belief, a thousand mercies, a thousand blessings, a thousand times more increase in guidance, and will remove from him all gall and disease.” (Tirmidhi)
This hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) explains the magnanimous and diverse range of benefits it carries. Moreover, the intercessional benefits of it are not limited to the person who recites it only, rather the benefits also take into consideration the person who listens to it and who uses Surah Yaseen in the unconventional way of writing it and drinking it. Therefore, no matter in whichever way Surah Yaseen is interacted with, it results in opening the doors of countless blessings and benefits for a believer.
4. For The Dying Person:
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in one of His hadiths:
“Recite Yaseen on those who are dying.” (Dawud)
From this hadith it becomes clear that Surah Yaseen is a recommendation pertaining to attending of a dying person. A person who is dying needs comfort and some kind of spiritual help to pass on to the next world with ease, therefore, at such a time if there is the Heart of Quran being recited, it surely helps the dying person and brings ease and peace to the excruciating process.
Regarding the forgiveness benefits of Surah Yaseen, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said the following:
“Whoever recites Surah Yaseen at night seeking the pleasure of Allah, that night he will be forgiven.” (Abu Nuaym)
This hadith also makes it clear that if Surah Yaseen is recited with true and pure intentions of pleasing Allah Almighty, then the ultimate result is the person who recites it during the night will wake up free of sin the next morning. Therefore, if a believer ensures reciting Surah Yaseen before going to sleep and thinks in his heart and mind that it is done for the pleasure of Allah Almighty, then he or she should remain confident that their sins will be forgiven while they are asleep.
In a nutshell, Surah Yaseen is undoubtedly one of the most reverend, prestigious and benefits bringing Surahs of Quran. Therefore, if a Muslim wishes to attain benefits of all kinds from Quran recitation, then it is imperative that he or she makes recitation of Surah Yaseen a part of everyday life. In this regard memorization of Surah Yaeen can help a great deal with regards to its recitation.
