Surah al-Inshirah (Arabic: سورة الإنشراح‎, “Solace” or “Comfort”) is the ninety-fourth sura of the Qur’an with eight ayat and is a Meccan sura.

The passage asks the reader, who is Muhammad specifically, if God has been a comfort and a remover of obstacles. In fact, whatever personal sorrows this may bring to mind, “Surely, with each difficulty there is ease”. This may indeed be the key phrase of this sura; it is repeated in lines 5 and 6. Conversely, the reader is asked to continue their work diligently, even when it grows simple again – for God Himself is what you are working for.

  • The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said that Allah (s.w.t.) grants good fortune and Yaqeen (certitude) in religion, to the person who recites this surah.
  • Recitation of this surah is also good for relieving chest pains.
  • Drinking water in which this surah has been dissolved is a cure for problems while urination and heart ailments.
