2. Surah Al Baqarah
Surah Al Baqarah is the longest Surah in the Quran and discusses many practical issues.
The Prophet (PBUH) has pointed out the many benefits of Surah Al Baqarah such as:
- Reciting it at home keeps the Shaitan away and protects it from spiritual ailments, and helps both in the treatment of such conditions.
- Ayat-ul-Kursi, verse 255 of Surah Al Baqarah, is related to Allah’s throne. It is used for ruqyah treatment, the treatment of evil eye, black magic, and also for general and comprehensive protection.
- The last 2 verses of the Surah have immense benefits as well, as highlighted by the Prophet (PBUH),
“Whoever recites the last two verses of Surat al-Baqarah at night, it will suffice him” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4723; Muslim, 807).
- The Prophet (PBUH) also said the following,
“Allah inscribed a book two thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, from which the last two verses of Surat al-Baqarah were revealed. If they are recited for three nights, no Shaytan (devil) will remain in the house.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2882).
