How sound is the hadith which encourages us to recite the first 3 verses of surah-al-anam after fajr salah? it has various fadails.( Reference – Durr e Mansoor 3/345/346)


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

We do have ahadith which say if one perform those deeds one would enter Jannah without reckoning such as in one of the ahadith it has been narrated from Imam Sadiq (as), he says: God enters three groups to Paradise without reckoning: the “just” Imam and the, the honest and truthful businessman, and old man who has spent his life in worshipping of God.

But this is when those deeds remove all of our other sins. So one must be careful of all of his deeds to gain the proximity of Allah(swt). Suppose there is an honest and truthful businessman but he doesn’t pray, do you think Allah will enter him without reckoning? Of course not. So one has to be very vigilant in all of his actions so all of his actions and deeds are for the sake of Allah and not some part of the deeds are good and on the other hand the remaining deeds are bad such as betraying etc.

Regarding the second part of your question:

There are some ahadith which speak about the virtues of reciting the first three verses of Surah An’aam such as:

عن جابر ابن عبدالله انصاری قال: قال رسول الله صلی الله علیه وآله وسلم: من قرأ من الانعام ثلاث آیات من اول‌ها الی قوله «ما یکسبون» و کل الله تعالی علیه اربعین الف ملک، یکتبون له مثل ثواب عبادتهم الی یوم القیامة، و ینزل علیه من السماء السابعة ملکاً معه عمود من حدید، یکون موکلا علیه حتی اذا اراد الشیطان ان یوسویه او یلقی فی قلبه شیئا یضربه بهذا العمود ضربة تطرده عنه حتی یکون بینه و بین الشیطان سبعون حجاباً و یقول الله تعالی له یوم القیامة: عبدی اذهب الی ظلی و کل من جنتی و اشرب من الکوثر و اغتسل من السلسبیل فانک عبدی و انا ربک.

Jabir narrates from the Holy Prophet (saww): “Whoever recites the first three verses of Surah An’aam until “ما تکسبون“, God appoints 40,000 angels to write for him as a reward of worship until the Day of Judgment, and appoints an angel from the seventh sky, to prevent the temptation of the devil in his heart and creates a veil between him and the devil, and on the day of judgment God will say: Be under my shadow and eat from the blessings of heaven and drink from the pool of Kawthar and take a bath in Salsabil because you are my servant and I am your God”

In another hadith we find regarding the forgiveness by the angels till the day of judgment:
In another place we find, Prophet Muhammad (saww) said: “Whoever prays the morning prayer in congregation and sits in its place of prayer and recites the first three verses of Surah An’aam, God commands 70 angels to glorify God till the Day of Judgment and ask for his forgiveness.”

But we should remember that there are different levels to gain the thawab(reward) like a person who just recites gets a thawab and a person who thinks and ponders over the verses gets the higher and better thawab and one who implements what he has recited gets the highest reward. So the best thawab is gained after acting upon the content of the Surah.

Reading and reciting all surahs of the Quran has many positive effects in one’s worldly and spiritual life, as many benefits have been mentioned for each of the surahs. However, we must keep in mind that the Quran is a guideline to life and a book whose teaching must be practiced. Reciting it, is the first step towards pondering, believing and practicing its teachings, as the great rewards of the good doers come from their actions and deeds.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
