Surah an-Naml is a ‘makki’ surah and has 93 verses.
In the commentary of Majma’ul Bayan, it is written that the reward for reciting this surah is compared to ten times the number of people alive during the time of Prophet Suleiman (a.s.), Hud (a.s.), Shu’aib (a.s.), Saalih (a.s.) and Ibrahim (a.s.).
In the commentary of Burhan it is written that if this surah is written on deerskin and kept in the house, then no dangerous creature (e.g. snake) will come near the house. This has been narrated by Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.)
