Authentic Narrations on the Virtues of Surat Al Baqarah

1) On the Authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Do not turn your homes into graves, Indeed the Shaytaan flees from a house that Suratul Baqarah is read in.
[Collected by Muslim]

2) On the Authority of bu Mas’ood – may Allaah be pleased with him – the Prophet of Allaah –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

The last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah will suffice whoever reads them in a night.
[Collected by al Bukhaaree. T.N. Starting from Aman ar Rasool…it doesn’t mean the last two Ayaat literally as explained by ibn Hajar and others.]

3) On the authority of Abu Umaamah – may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Whoever reads Ayatul Kursee after every obligatory prayer, nothing will prevent this person from entering Jannah except death.
[Collected by an Nasaa-ee and declared authentic by ibn Hibbaan and al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer #6464]

4) On the authority of an Nu’maan ibn Basheer, the Prophet –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Indeed Allaah had written a book before He created the heavens and earth by two thousand years. He revealed two verses from it that with which He concluded Suratul Baqarah. Shaytaan will not draw close to a house in which they are read for three nights.

[Collected by at Tirmidhee and authenticated by al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer # 1799]

5) On the Authority of ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir:

Read these last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah, for indeed my Lord has given them to me from underneath the Throne.”

6) On the authority of Abu Umaamah al Baahilee:

Allaah’s greatest name – with which if He were called by, He would respond – is in three Ayaat in al Baqarah, Aal ‘Imraan and Taha.
[Declared authentic by al Albaanee: Refer to Saheeh al Jaami’ #979, al Jaami’ as Sahgeer: 1/99]

I was given these final Ayaat from Suratul Baqarah from a treasure underneath the Throne, no prophet was given them before me.
[Collected by al Imaam Ahmad, at Tabaraanee and ibn Hibbaan, declared authentic by al Albaanee: refer to Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer # 1060]

8) On the authority of an Nawwaas ibn Sam’aan:

The Qur’aan and its people, those who used to act upon it in the life of this world will come forth on the Day of Resurrection. At the head would be Suratul Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan, they would come like two shades, and two black clouds [to shade those who acted upon them], and two groups of birds in rows. They would argue on behalf of those who acted upon them.
[Collected by al Imaam Muslim, Ahmad and at Tirmidhee]

9) On the authority of Hudhayfah – may Allaah be pleased with him:

We were favored over other people by three things; our rows [in prayer] are like the rows of the angels, all of earth was made as a place of worship for us, and its soil a purification if we cannot find water, and I was given these last Ayaat from Suratul Baqarah from a treasure underneath the Throne, no prophet was given them before me.

[Collected by Muslim, Ahmad and an Nasaa-ee, declared authentic by al Albaanee: Saheeh al Jaam’ as Sagheer #4223]
