Surah al-Qasas (Arabic: سورة القصص, “The Stories”) is the 28th sura of the Qur’an with 88 ayat.
According to Ibn Kathir’s commentary, the Surah takes its name from verse 25 in which the word Al-Qasas occurs. Lexically, qasas means to relate events in their proper sequence. Thus, from the view- point of the meaning too, this word can be a suitable title for this Surah, for in it the detailed story of the Prophet Moses has been related.
Benefits of reciting Surah al-Qasas (The Narrative)
It is narrated from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) that whoever recites this surah will get the reward equivalent to the number of people present at the time of Prophet Musa (a.s.) and all the angels will bear witness on his behalf.
If one drinks the water in which this surah has been dissolved, all his problems and worries will, Insha-Allah, be solved.
Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that drinking water in which this surah has been dissolved is a remedy from illness and worrie.
