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)
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.
