Surah ash-Shura has 53 ayaat and it was revealed in Makkah.
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said that the one who recites this surah will be from among those people on whom the angels send salutations and pray for their forgiveness.
It is narrated from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that whoever recites this surah will be raised on the Day of Reckoning with a face as bright as the full moon and he will be told: ‘You are from those who used to recite ash-Shura. If you knew the reward for this, you would never have felt tired of reciting it.’ The angels will then be ordered to take him to Jannah where he will find a palace made of red rubies. There will be two huries and a thousand slaves in that palace.
