Make This A Daily Practice

By Halima Bint Muhammad Abdul Hannan


The Quran is the word of Allah (SWT). It is a cure to all illnesses be it spiritual or physical. Rasulallah (SAW) had a habit of reciting certain Surahs daily, as a means of connecting with Allah and also a source of protection from all evil.

Recite Surat Fatihah, as it is the foundation and a summary of the Quran[1]. Make this a daily practice. Learn Surat Yasin, for it is the heart of the Quran, and ponder over its meaning; Allah (SWT) will give ten times the reward[2]. Make this a daily practice. Tawhid is the fundamental principle in Islam. Recite Surat Ikhlas, and you have covered a third of the Quran[3]. Make this a daily practice.

Don’t make your house a residence for Shaitan; recite Surat Baqarah[4]. Make this a daily practice. Protect yourself from the doubts and whispers of Shaitan by reciting Ayah Tul Kursi. Make this a daily practice. Content your heart with the glorification of Allah (SWT) by reading Haa Meem Ad-dukhan, and in return get ten thousand angels asking forgiveness for you[5]. Make this a daily practice.

Don’t forget the last few ayahs of Surat Baqarah;[6] they are a true remedy to the whispers of Shaitan. Make this a daily practice. Better yet read the entire Baqarah along with Al-Imran; make them a daily practice. These two will argue for you in the form of two shady clouds[7].

Recite the first three verses of Surat Kahf, for that would save you from the tribulations of Dajjal[8] and create contentment in the heart. Make this a daily practice. Remind yourself especially before sleep of the punishments of the grave; recite Surat Mulk[9] and Surat Zilzaal, to protect yourself from the blazing fire. Make this a daily practice.

Seek refuge in Allah (SWT) from Shaitan, the rejected one and protect yourself by reciting Naas and Falaq. Make this is a daily practice. Rasulallah (SAW) used to recite Surat Hashr and Surat Banu Israil prior to sleeping[10]. Make this is a daily practice.

Recite and recite often; recite even if you find it difficult. Allah (SWT) will give a separate reward for trying[11]. There are ten rewards for every letter you read. Alif Laam Meem is not a letter; rather, Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter and Meem is a letter[12].  The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it[13] to others. So do not turn away from the blessed speech of Allah.
