Surah Anam’s Benefits | Absolution & Prosperity

A 15-verse surah (beginning at 136 and finishing at 150) is where the term “Surah Anam” comes from. Castles were the primary focus of Allah’s revelation in these verses. Anam means “battle” in Arabic when spoken aloud. 

As this surah extols Allah, over 70,000 angels accompanied it on its descent. The advantages of Surah Anam do not end here. With each recitation of this surah, those 70,000 angels begin to pray for the one, asking that they be spared from all their troubles. 

“Never has it been read over a sick person without Allah providing him a cure.” This statement from our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) explains the significance of Surah Anam.

The ayat at the beginning of Surah Anam provides a yardstick for evaluating its benefits.

“All praise belongs to Allah alone, Who created the heavens and the earth and produced darkness and light; yet the disbelievers set up (false gods) as equals to their Lord,” as Allah says in the Quran. A Makki surah, Surah Anam has 165 Ayahs and 20 Rukus, revealed in 55 distinct orders. There are 30,55 words and 12,420 letters in all.

During Ramadan, the Surah Anam Benefits

Reading Surah Al An’am as part of your daily routine or during Ramadan can bring you good fortune. In his hadith, Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) confirms this, saying, “Whoso recites this surah, the seventy thousand angels who came with it at the time of its descending, glorifying Allah, will pray for his forgiveness and good fortune day and night up to the day of judgment.”

The Advantages and Excellence of Surah Anam

  • The revelation of the 69th Surah to Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم) at Mecca is known as Surah Anam. The verses of this Surat were all revealed simultaneously, according to the Traditions of Ahlul-Bayt (as).
  • The primary goal of this Surat, like previous Makki Surahs, is to draw people to the oneness of Allah, prophecy, and the resurrection. However, the Surat heavily emphasizes monotheism and rejects paganism and idolatry.
  • If Muslims listen intently to the verses of this Surat, they will rid themselves of hypocrisy, and its followers will have listening ears, clear vision, and knowing hearts and minds.
  • Regarding the excellence of Surah Anam, it is said that seventy thousand angels followed it when it was unveiled. And that all those angels would beg pardon on behalf of the believer whose soul and ego are fed by the light of monotheism as he recites it.
  • “The Qur’an was revealed in one-fifth part; whoever memorized it in one-fifth part would not forget it,” declared our beloved Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم) except Surat al An’am, which was given to the Prophet by 70,000 angels from every heavenly realm after being revealed in its whole. No ill person has ever gotten well after reciting it; Allah always provides a remedy.

Highlights of  Surah Anam’s perks 

  • As our beloved Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (A.S.) has said, a person will be blessed abundantly and free from all ailments and problems if they write this Surah Anam using musk or saffron and then drink it (i.e., put the written surah in water for its writing to dissolve) for six consecutive days. There is no way he could become sick or lose his health, and he would be immune to any pain or suffering.
  • Every time someone recites this Surat Al-An’am, the 70,000 angels who descended with it to praise Allah will pray for their forgiveness and good fortune all night until the day of judgment.
  • To obtain lawful desires, do a four-rakat salat, divided into two sets of two rakats each, reciting Surat al Fatihah and Surah An-am. After reciting al Surah Al-An’am, say:
    • YA KARIM YA KARIM YA KARIM
    • YA AZIM YA AZIM YA AZIM
    • YA AZAM MIN KULLI AZIM
    • YA SAMI AL DU-A-I
    • YA MAN LA TUGHAYYIRUTUL AYYAMU WAL LAYLI
    • SALLI ALA MUHAMMADIN WA ALI MUHAMMAD
    • WARHAM ZAFI WA FAQRI WA FAQATI WA MASKANATI
    • FA INNAK ALAMU BIHA MINNI
    • WA ANTA ALAMU HAJATI
    • YA MAN RAHIMA SHAYKHA YAQUBA RADDA
    • ALAYHI YUSUFA QURRATA AYNIHI
    • YA MAN RAHIMA AYYUBA BADA HULULI BALA-IHI
    • YA MAN RAHIMA MUHAMMADAN ALAYHI WA ALIHIS SALAMU
    • WA MANIL YATIMA AWAHU
    • WA NASARAHU ALA JABABIRATI QURAYSH WA TAWAGHITIHA WA AMKANAHU MIN HUM
    • YA MUGHITHU YA MUGHITHU YA MUGHITHU
  • Now beseech Allah to fulfil your legitimate desire; inshallah, He will surely grant you what you want.
  • Whoever recites the whole An-am surah till taksibun would be rewarded with the adoration of forty thousand angels until the day of judgement, according to Allah. People who recite this surah first thing in the morning will also be eligible for the same prize.
  • Allah (SWT) assigns 1,000 angels to anybody who prays the first three verses of Surah An’am until Wa ya’lamu ma taksibun, and they keep a record of his devotion. Also, a celestial being with a twisted iron rod comes tumbling down from the seventh heaven. Now, if Satan tries to nag at the reciter or plant the seed of sin in his heart, the angel strikes him so forcefully that seventy walls erect themselves between them. “Walk in My shade this day, for there is no shade except My shade,” Allah Ta’ala would tell him on the Day of Resurrection. Because you are My servant and I am your Lord, you are invited to partake in the fruits of My paradise, drink from the pool of Kawthar, and bathe in the spring of Salsabeel. (The Hadith of al-Tafsir)
  • The Hidden Meaning of Surah Anam as It Relates to Dua Acceptance (6)Oh, my goodness! It’s raining cats and kittens! [Alameen, Rabbil. Make your dua here.] The blessings of Allah (peace be upon him) are upon you. The following advantages accrue to those who study the first three Aayats of Surah Anam: One hundred forty thousand angels will do acts of worship on behalf of the believer up to the Day of Judgement, and the believer will receive all of the Sawab (Reward).
  • A guardian angel armed with an iron spear will materialise to protect the individual against the Shaytan. 3. Allah will command that on the Day of Judgement, the individual partakes in everything excellent from Jannah, including eating fruits from Jannah, drinking water from Kauthar, and bathing in the Salsabeel river, among other things.
  • If one wrote the Surah Anam with musk or saffron and then drank it (that is, dissolve the surah in water) for six days, they would be bestowed with numerous blessings and be free from all diseases. Reading Surah Anam may alleviate illness. There is no way he could become sick or lose his health, and he would be immune to any pain or suffering.

Hadith On Surah Anam

Jabir ( may God be pleased with him ) reported that.

The Prophet Mohammed (may God bless him and his family) said, ‘So many Angels accompanied its revelation that the horizon was covered with them.’

(Hakim, Dhahabi and Baihaqi)

Sum Up

Since it covers every possible military concern, the benefits of Surah Anfal are tremendous. Most of the surah’s verses focus on the first conflict between Muslims and Mushrikins, the Battle of Badr.
