Benefits Of Reading The Sura Yasin-i Sharif

There are ten benefits in reciting (or reading) the Sura Yasin-i sharif [1] :

1 - The hungry person will become satiated. That is, his food will come to him unexpectedly.

2 - The thirsty person will find water enough to satisfy him fully.

3 - The person without clothes will find clothes.

4 - The ill person whose time of death has not come will recover.

5 - The ill person whose hour of death has come will not feel the throes of death.

6 - As he dies, the angels of Paradise will come to him and show themselves to him.

7 - The fearful person will become secure against what he fears.

8 - A stranger lonely in a place will find someone to help him.

9 - It will become easy for a bachelor to get married.

10 - Lost or missing property will be found. However, it must be read with belief and one must intend for these things.

Our Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) declares, "When a sura is recited (or read) in the presence of a dying person, an angel for each letter (of the sura) will come and pray so that his soul will leave him with ease. As he is washed, they will keep him company. As his janaza is carried, they will go with him. They will attend at his janaza salat. They will be with him during his interment. They will pray for him all the time." Another hadith-i sharif declares, "If the Yasin-i sharif is read (or recited) in the presence of a Muslim who is ill, the angel named Ridwan will bring him sharbet from Paradise. He will give away his soul sated with water. He will go to his grave sated. He will not need water."
