Surah al-Waqi’ah was revealed in Makkah and it has 96 ayaat.
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that a person who recites this surah will not be from among the absent-minded ones. Poverty does not come near this person.
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) said that the one who recites surah al-Waqi’ah will have a shining face of the Day of Reckoning.
It is narrated from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that whoever recites this surah on every Friday, will be from those whom Allah (s.w.t.) loves and he will be loved by people also. He will be free from troubles and poverty and will be counted from the loyal companions of Imam Ali (a.s.).
Reciting this surah on a dead person leads to all his sins being forgiven and if the person is on his deathbed then he will die with ease.
Imam Ali Zainul Abideen (a.s.) has narrated that if a person recites this surah (at night) on the first night of the lunar month and then continues to recite the same surah, increasing the number of times to coincide with the date, such that on the tenth night he recites it ten times, until the fourteenth night, then his sustenance will increase greatly.
May Allah make lour lives easier for us all!
