Chapter No: 1

Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ went out to Ubayy bin Ka'b (RA), and the Apostle of Allah ﷺ called out: "O Ubayy!" And he was offering Salah, so Ubayy turned around but he did not answer to him, so Ubayy shortened his Salah and then he turned to the Apostle of Allah ﷺ and said: 'As-Salamu 'Alaikum, O Apostle of Allah!' The Apostle of Allah ﷺ said: 'Wa 'Alaikum As-Salam - what prevented you from answering me when I called you Ubayy?' He said: 'O Apostle of Allah ﷺ! I was offering Salah.' So he said: 'Do you not find among what Allah revealed to me: Respond to Allah and to the Apostle when they call you to what gives you life?' He said: 'Yes indeed, I shall not do it again, if Allah wills.' He said: 'Would you like for me to teach you a Surah the likes of which has neither been revealed in the Tawrah, nor the Injil, nor the Zabur, nor in the entire Qur'an?' He said: "Yes, O Apostle of Allah!' The Apostle of Allah ﷺ said: 'What do you recite in your Salah?' The narrator said: 'He recited Umm Al-Qur'an.' So the Apostle of Allah ﷺ said: 'By Him in Whose Hand is my soul! The like of it has neither been revealed in the Tawrah, nor the Injil nor the Zabur, nor in the Furqan. It is the seven oft-repeated, and the Mighty Qur'an which is given to me.'"

Chapter No: 2

Abu Hurairah (RA) said: " Allah’s Apostle ﷺ sent an expedition force [comprised] of countable number, and he made each of them to recite what he could recite, so each man of them recited whatever he had of the Qur’an (in memory). Then he came to one of the youngest men among them and said: 'What have you memorized O so-and-so?' He said: 'I memorized this and that and Surat Al-Baqarah.' He said: 'You memorized Surat Al-Baqarah?' He said: "Yes.' He said: "Then go, for you are their commander.' A man among their nobles said: 'By Allah, O Apostle of Allah! Nothing prevented me from learning Surat Al-Baqarah except fearing that I might not be able to stand with it (in voluntary night prayer).' The Apostle of Allah ﷺ said: 'Learn the Qur'an to recite it, for indeed, the example of the Qur’an for one who learns it, recites it and stands in salah with it is like a bag full of musk, its fragrance spreading in every corner. And the example of one who learns it but goes to sleep while it is in his heart is like a bag of musk tied close (at its mouth).'"


Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "Do not turn your homes into graves. Indeed Ash-Shaitan does not enter the house in which Surat Al-Baqarah is recited."


Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "Everything has a hump and the hump of the Qur'an is Surat Al-Baqarah. There is an Ayah in it which is the chef of all the Ayahs in the Qur'an; [it is] the Ayat Al-Kursi."


Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "Whoever recites Ha Mim Al-Mu'min - up to - To Him is the return (40:1-3) and Ayat Al-Kursi when he reaches (gets up in) the morning, then he is protected thereby until evening. And, if anyone recites these verses in the evening then he is protected thereby till it is morning.”

Chapter No: 3

Narrated from Abdur-Rahman bin Abi Laila that Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari (RA) had a niche in which dates were kept. A ghoul (female Jinni) would come and steal from it, so he complained about that to the Prophet ﷺ. So, he said: "Go, and when you see her say: 'In the Name of Allah, respond to the Apostle of Allah ﷺ.'" He (narrator) said: "So he caught her, and she swore that she would not come again, so he let her go." He came to the Prophet ﷺ and he asked: "What have your prisoner done?" He said: "She swore not to come again." He said: "She has lied, and she will come again to lie again." He (narrator) said: "He caught her another time and she swore that she would not come again, so he let her go, and came to the Prophet ﷺ." He asked: "What did your prisoner do?" He said: "She swore that she would not come again." So, he said: "She lied and she will come again to lie." So he caught her and said: "I shall not let you go until you accompany me to the Prophet ﷺ." She said: "I shall tell you something: If you recite Ayat Al-Kursi in your home, then no Shaitan, nor any other shall come near you." So he went to the Prophet ﷺ and he said: "What did your captive do?" He said: "I informed him of what she said, and he said: 'She told the truth and she is a continuous liar.'"

Chapter No: 5

Narrated from An-Nawwas bin Sam'an (RA) that the Prophet ﷺ said: "The Qur'an and its people who had abided by it in the world shall come led by Surat Al-Baqarah and Al 'Imran. An-Nawwas said: "The Apostle of Allah ﷺ coined three parables about them which I have not since forgotten, he said: "They will come as though they are two canopies with illumination in them, or as if they are two shady clouds, or as if they are shadows of lines of birds pleading on behalf of their people."


Abdullah bin Mas'ud (RA) said: "Allah has not created anything in the heavens nor in the earth mightier than Ayat Al-Kursi." Sufyan said: "Because Ayat Al-Kursi is the Speech of Allah, and Allah's Speech is mightier than Allah’s creation of heaven and earth."

Ibn Abbas (RA) said: "One of the companions of the Prophet ﷺ pitched a tent on a grave without knowing that it was a grave. Suddenly he heard a person from the grave reciting Surah al-Mulk till he completed it. So, he went to the Prophet ﷺ and said: 'Oh Apostle of Allah, I pitched my tent on a grave without realizing that is was a grave. Then suddenly I heard a person from the grave reciting Surah al-Mulk till he completed it.' The Apostle of Allah ﷺ said: 'It is the defender; it is the rescuer- it rescues from the punishment of the grave.'"

Narrated from Jabir (RA) that the Prophet ﷺ would not sleep until he has recited Alif Lam Mim Tanzil and: Tabarak Alladhi Biyadihil-Mulk." This Hadith was reported similarly by more than one from Laith bin Abi Sulaim. Mughirah bin Muslim reported it from Abu Az-Zubair, from Jabir from the Prophet (ﷺ) and it is similar to this. Zuhair reported it and said: "I said to Abu Az-Zubair: 'Did you hear Jabir mentioning this Hadith?' He said: 'Safwan or Ibn Safwan informed me of it.'" It is as if Zuhair rejected the idea that this Hadith was from Abu Az-Zubair from Jabir. (Another chain) with similar in meaning.
