Virtue of reciting Surah Dukhan

Question

Is there any virtue in reciting Surah Dukhan every night?

Answer

1) ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has mentioned Surah Dukhan to be from those Surahs that do have authentic virtues.

(Tadribur Rawi, vol. 1 pg. 490)

 

2) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘Whomsoever recites Surah Dukhan at night, seventy thousand angels will seek forgiveness on his behalf’.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2888)

The above narration has quite a weak chain. Despite this, reciting Surah Dukhan does hold extra merit in general as quoted at the outset.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
