What are the Rewards of Reading Surah Yaseen?
Surah Yaseen is commonly known as "the heart of the Quran."
Why? The heart is considered the most important organ. It supplies the entire body with blood to keep us functioning. Without the heart, the body cannot live. This analogy can be applied to Surah Yaseen. Reading it comes with many benefits which true believers must not miss out on.
In this article, learn some facts about surah yaseen and then we'll take a look at several hadith which mention the benefits of reading surah yaseen.
Facts about Surah Yaseen
It is the 36th Surah of the Quran.
There as 83 verses.
The meaning of the word “Yaseen,” is unknown. Although many meanings have been suggested, it is Allah who knows best.
It warns those who refuse to believe in God and mock God.
It was revealed in Mecca.
The last verse of Surah Yaseen translates as, “So Glorified is He and Exalted above all that they associate with Him, and in Whose Hands is the dominion of all things, and to Him you shall be returned.”
It ends with arguments in favor of the existence of Resurrection and Allah's sovereign power.
It emphasizes the Quran as coming from a divine source.
Benefits of Reading Surah Yaseen
1. Reading it when you wake up may invoke Allah to fulfill all your needs for that day.
Hadhrat ‘Ataa’ bin Abi Ribaah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) says that the Prophet Mohamed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) reportedly has said, “Whoever reads Surah Yaseen at the beginning of the day — all his needs for that day will be fulfilled.”
2. It's the equivalent of reading the whole Quran 10 times.
“Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Glorious Quran is Surah Yaseen. Whoever reads Surah Yaseen, Allah records for them a reward equal to that of reading the whole Quran 10 times.” — Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A and Dhahabi
3. Memorization will invoke the blessings of Allah.
It has been said that Allah recited Surah Yaseen and Surah Taha for a thousand years before the creation of Heaven and Earth. Upon hearing this, the angels said, “Blessing is for the Ummah unto whom the Quran will be sent down. Blessing is for the hearts that will memorize it, and blessing is for the tongues that will recite it.”
4. It invokes the mercy of Allah to forgive your sins.
“Whoever reads Surah Yaseen for the pleasure of Allah only, all his earlier sins are forgiven. Therefore, make a practice of reading this Surah over your dead.”
Read Surah Yaseen at every beginning and end of every day, daily, to have your prayers answered. Make sure you read it with knowledge and understanding. If you do not know Arabic, read a trusted translation of the Surah.
5. It benefits the reader in this life, as well as in the Hereafter.
According to one hadith, Surah Yaseen is named in the Torah as “Mun’imah” in other words: "Giver of Good Things." This is because it contains benefits to both the reader in this world and the next. It removes the afflictions of this world and the next. Surah Yaseen also takes away the dread of the next life. Hashiya of Tafsir Jalalalayn, pg 368.
6. It will exalt the status of the believers, both in this world and the next.
Surah Yaseen is also known as “Raafi’ah Khaafidhah.” In other words, that which exalts the status of the believers and degrades the unbelievers. According to a riwayat, Prophet Mohamed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “My heart desires that Surah Yaseen should be present in the heart of every one of my ummah.” So, make sure you memorize Surah Yaseen in order to reap its benefits.
"Soundness of faith rests on acknowledging resurrection and judgment," said Imam Ghazali. Surah Yaseen contains many virtues — including resurrection and judgement, both of which it speaks on in a detailed manner.
7. It will grant you the status of a shaheed.
According to one hadith, if anyone recites Surah Yaseen every night and then dies, they will die as a shaheed (a martyr).
8. It wipes out your sins, alleviates hunger, and guides the lost.
“Whoever reads Surah Yaseen is forgiven; whoever reads it in hunger is satisfied; whoever reads it having lost their way, finds their way; whoever reads it on losing an animal, finds it. When one reads it while addressing the fact that that their food will run short, that food will then become sufficient. If one reads it while beside someone who is in the throes of death, then that process is made more smoothly for them. If anyone reads it on a woman who is experiencing difficulty in childbirth, her delivery will then become easy. ”
Imam Tibi explains in his commentary on Mishkat al-Masabih why Surah Yaseen is called the Heart of the Quran: "Because of what it contains. Overwhelming proof, decisive signs, subtle spiritual meanings, eloquent admonition, and stern warnings."
9. It abolishes fear from your heart.
Maqri (Rahmatullah Alaihi) said, “If Surah Yaseen is read by one who fears the ruler or an enemy, one gets rid of this fear.”
10. It will lead to your prayers being heard.
According to one hadith, if somebody reads Surah Yaseen and Surah Was-Saaffaat on Friday and begs Allah for something, then their prayer is granted.
11. Reading it at night will forgive your sins.
The Prophet said, "Whoever recited Surah Yasin in the night seeking Allah’s pleasure, Allah would forgive him." Ibn Hibban, Darimi 3283/A, Abu Yala, Tabarani, Baihaqi & Ibn Mardawaih.

Wa Alaikum Salam, Mathew James! You are most welcome. Indeed equal and equivalent are not the same. Come again soon!
Mathew James on August 08, 2013:
assalam alaikum yumn, thank you for the above clarification regarding the the word equivalent. the concept of being equal is totally different. again, thanks for your clarification.
yumn (author) on August 07, 2013:
Thank you everyone, for your beautiful words! Sorry I haven't been active lately - I had to take my Ramadan break! Tomorrow Thu-08-Aug is most probably Eid-ul-Fitr, Muslims brace yourself for a joyful celebration....and watch this space, I plan to write more inspirational hubs.
To the commentor who asked how reading Surah Yaseen can be equal to or better than reading Qur'an: You are right - reading just one Surah cannot possibly be equal to reading the entire Qur'an, right? But the word used in the hadith is 'equivalent', not 'equal'. There is a difference. Besides, it is simply to show the immense benefit, importance and weight of Surah Yaseen that the hadith is worded as such. Furthermore, some people say this particular hadith is a weak one, and therefore not reliable. However - regardless of the above, it is undeniable that the rewards and benefits of reading Surah Yaseen are countless and one should endeavour to memorize and internalize it to earn the Mercy of the Most Merciful One. Don't you agree?
To all those who have memorized Surah Yaseen: Masha Allah!!! You have done such a great thing. I wish to be among those who memorize Surah Yaseen too...I will soon publish tips on how to memorize Surahs fast, In sha Allah.
Assalam Alaikum everyone! May Allah bless you all!
