أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

1. Hazrat Abu Hurairah ibn Amr radiyallahu anhu told of a man coming to the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam and asking him to teach him to recite. On being told to recite three of the Surahs with Alif laam raa he replied, “I am old, my heart has difficulty in remembering, and my tongue is sluggish.” Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam told him to recite the three Surahs of Haa meem, he gave the same reply and then asked Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam “Teach me the reading of a comprehensive surah.” So Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam taught him to recite Izaa zul zilatil ardhu zilzaalahaa up to the end. The man said, “I swear by Him who has sent you with the truth that I shall never recite more than that.”

When the man turned away Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam said twice, “The little man has become successful.”

Note: This Surah has been called a comprehensive Surah because it contains the verse:

“And whoso doth good an atom’s weight shall see it then, and whoso doth ill an atom’s weight shall see it then.”

This includes all those things that have been ordered to be done and all those things that have been ordered to refrain from.

2. Hazrat Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu and Hazrat Anas ibn Malik radiyallahu anhu reported Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam as saying that Izaa zul zilatil ardhu zilzaalahaa is equivalent to half the Qur’aan, Qul huwallahu ahad is equivalent to a third of the Qur’aan and Qul yaa ayyuhal kaafiroon is equivalent to a quarter of the Qur’aan.

Note: In the Qur’aan mention has been made of creation first time and a second time because in this Surah recreation and resurrection have been told in an influential and effective manner. The reading of this Surah is equivalent to half of the Qur’aan.
