Surah Ya-Sin - Part 2
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
Surah Ya-Sin is known as the Heart of the Qur'an.
A heart is something that contains the entire story of the being. Numerous prophetic traditions involve the recitation of Surah Ya-Sin. One of the virtues is that at the time of demise, with every letter recited there will be thousands of angels descending on the deceased. For one who is anxious recitation of Surah Ya-Sin allows calm to descend on him. For one who is in need or hungry, the recitation will allow him to feel content and satisfied. It is a Surah that contains the crux of life and that is that we are passers-by and there is a purpose for this journey and Allah has given us appropriate maps and directions in this life and apostles or messengers to guide us.
