Al-Fajr in Fajr, An-Naba in ‘Asr, Ar-Rahman and Yaseen daily

Fatwaa ID: 795


Assalaamu alaykum wrwb respected mufti saahib,

Someone asked me the following:

Is there any basis to recite Surah Fajr at Fajr, Surah Naba at ‘Asr and reciting Surah Rahmaan daily? Obviously, they are soorahs of the Qur’aan so you get reward upon reciting them but do they have any special virtue at specific times of the day? What about Surah YaaSeen?

Please kindly excuse for multiple questions in one query. I thought that perhaps it better to group them in one.

Jazakumullaahu khayran

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. There is no specific virtue in reciting Surah Al-Fajr in Fajr Salaah and An-Naba in ‘Asr Salaah.
  2. There is no specific virtue in reciting Surah Ar-Rahman daily.
  3. It is advisable to recite Surah Yaseen daily. See the following,

Sayyiduna Jundub ibn ‘Abdillaah (R) narrates that Rasulullaah ﷺ said, “Whoever recites Surah Yaseen at night seeking the pleasure of Allaah, His sins will be forgiven.” [Muwatta, Ibn Hibbaan]

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbaas (R) says: “Whoever recites Yaseen in the morning, his work for that entire day will be made easy. And whoever recites it at the end of the day, his tasks till the next morning will be made easy.” [Daarimi]

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
