36. Ya-Sin

There are many hadith in regards to the benefits of reading the chapter Yaseen. Below are some of them.

“If one, who makes it a habit to read the chapter Yaseen every night before going to bed, passes away during the night, he will die a martyr.”

“Read chapter Yaseen frequently because there is prosperity and abundance in it:

1. If a hungry person reads it they will be fed.

2. If a naked person reads it they will be clothed.

3. If a single person reads it they will meet a partner and be wed.

4. If one who is scared reads it they will be safe from their fears.

5. One who is distressed by worldly affairs will be relieved of their distress.

6. The traveler will be freed from the burdens of traveling.

7. One who has lost something will find what they have lost.

8. One who reads it at the time of death will be freed from their troubles.

9. A thirsty one will quench their thirst.

10. A sick person will find healing if it not yet their time of death.”

“The chapter Yaseen is the heart of the Quran. If one reads Yaseen longing for Allah and the hereafter, Allah will definitely let Himself be found. Read chapter Yaseen upon our deceased ones.”

“Indeed, all things have a heart. The heart of the Quran is the chapter Yaseen. Whoever reads Yaseeen, Allah will give him the reward of having read the whole Quran without the chapter Yaseen – ten times over.”

“Just as the chapter Yaseen may be read on a daily basis or once every Friday, one who is distressed may also read it seven times and ask Allah to be freed from his troubles for the sake of this chapter.”

One may also read Yaseen forty-one times in times of trouble and need and pray to Allah for the acceptance of one’s prayers. Another practice is for a group of people to gather, each one reading Yaseen several times to complete it to forty-one in total, and then pray altogether.

By the one who is denoted by the name Allah (who created my being with His Names in accord with the meaning of the letter ‘B’), the Rahman, the Rahim.


1. Ya Sin (O Muhammad)!

2. And the Quran full of wisdom (which he disclosed)!

3. You are most definitely of the Rasuls.

4. Upon a straight path.

5. With the comprehensive knowledge disclosed to you by the One who is the Aziz, the Rahim.

6. So that you may warn a people whose forefathers have not been warned and thus who live cocooned (from their reality, the sunnatullah).

7. Indeed, the word (“Hell will be filled with the majority of humans and the jinni”) has come true for most of them! Because of this they do not believe.

8. Indeed, We have formed shackles (conditionings and judgments) around their necks up to their chins! Their heads are aloft (they are unable to see their essential reality; they live driven by their egos)!

9. And We have formed a barrier before them and after them (they can neither see their future nor take lessons from their past) and thus We covered them... They can no longer see.

10. Whether you warn them or do not warn them, it is all the same; they will not believe!

11. You can only warn the one who remembers (the reality that is reminded) and who is in awe of the Rahman, as his unknown. Give him the good news of forgiveness and an abundant reward.

12. Indeed, it is We, yes only We, who can bring the dead to life! We write their deeds and what they put forth! We record everything (with all its detail) in a Clear Book (in their brains and their spirits).

13. Give them the example of the people of that city to which the Rasuls had come.

14. When We sent two Rasuls to them and they denied them both... Upon this We sent a third one and strengthened him, and they (the Rasuls) said, “Indeed, We have been disclosed to you.”

15. They responded, “You are not but mere humans like us... And the Rahman has not disclosed anything... You are but liars.”

16. (The Rasuls) said, “Our Rabb knows, we have indeed been disclosed to you.”

17. “We are only responsible for clear notification.”

18. They said, “Indeed, we think you are a bad omen... So, if you do not desist we will definitely stone you to death and a severe suffering will afflict you from us.”

19. They said, “Your bad omen is from you... (Is it a bad omen) because you are reminded (of your reality)? No, you are a wasteful people.”

20. Then a man came running from the farthest end of the city, saying, “O my people, follow the Rasuls.”
