Virtues of Suraah Al-Baqarah & Suraah Al-Imraan

Assalam alaykoum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh

Transcribed from Tafsir Ibn Katsir

Learn Surat Al-Baqarah and Al-Imran because they are two lights and they shade their people on the Day of Resurrection, just as two clouds, two spaces of shade or two lines of (flying) birds. The Qur’an will meet its companion in the shape of a pale-faced man on the Day of Resurrection when his grave his opened. The Qur’an will ask him, ‘Do you know me?‘. The man will say, ‘I do not know you.’ The Qur’an will say, ‘I am your companion, the Qur’an, which has brought up thirst during the heat and made you stay up during the night. Every merchant has his certain trade. But, this Day, you are behind all types of trade. ‘Kingship will then be given to him in his right hand, eternal life in his left hand and the crown of grace will be placed on his head. His parents will also be granted two garments that the people of this life could never afford. They will say, ‘Why were we granted these garments?‘ It will be said, ‘Because your son was carrying the Qur’an.‘ It will be said (to the reader of the Qur’an), ‘Read and ascend through the levls of Paradise.‘ He will go on ascending as long as he recites, whether reciting slowly or quickly.

~ (Ahmad 5:352)
