Surah al-Ambiya (Arabic: سورة الأنبياء, “The Prophets”) is the 21st sura (or chapter) of the Qur’an with 112 ayat. It is a Makkan sura. Its principal subject matter is prophets of the past, who also preached the same faith as Muhammad.
Benefits of reciting Surah al-Ambiya
It is narrated that the reward for reciting this surah is that the accounting on the Day of Reckoning becomes easy for the reciter and all the Prophets whose names appear in the Holy Qur’an will come to meet him on this day.
Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) also said that whoever recites surah al-Ambiya frequently, his status in Jannah will be close to the Prophets.
