The virtues of Surat al-Baqarah are too many to count… That is why it was called Fustat (Pavilion) of the Holy Qur’an

It was noticeable in Surat al-Baqarah that there were also a number of usury verses, among the first that were revealed from the Qur’an. And Khalid bin Maadan called the Fustat (Pavilion) of the Holy Qur’an; that’s because of its greatness and splendor, and the large number of rulings and sermons. Umar ibn al-Khattab learned it with its jurisprudence and what it contained in twelve years, and his son Abdullah bin Omar learned it at eight years.

Al-Baqarah is the longest surah and has the longest verse.       

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle ordered me to guard the Zakat revenue of Ramadan. Then somebody came to me and started stealing of the foodstuff. I caught him and said, “I will take you to Allah’s Apostle!” Then Abu Huraira described the whole narration and said:) That person said (to me), “(Please don’t take me to Allah’s Apostle and I will tell you a few words by which Allah will benefit you.) When you go to your bed, recite Ayat-al-Kursi, (255) for then there will be a guard from Allah who will protect you all night long, and Satan will not be able to come near you till dawn.” (When the Prophet heard the story) he said (to me), “He (who came to you at night) told you the truth although he is a liar; and it was Satan.”

Moreover, it includes the longest verse in the Qur’an, which is the verse of Al-Almudayna (Indebtedness).

Surat Al-Baqarah is the longest surah of the Qur’an, with 286 verses, and its second order in the Qur’an after Surat Al-Fatiha. Perhaps it was the first surah that was revealed in Medina, except the verse” And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.” It is the last Ayah revealed in the day of Sacrifice during Hajj-al-wida'(The first and last farewell Pilgrimage).

Dr. Ahmed Issa Al-Maasrawi, Sheikh of the Egyptian Reciter, have said many times about the benefits and benefits of continually reading of Surat Al-Baqarah. As the reader for a continuous long period of time will see a wonder in his life, a cure in his body, increase in his livelihood, a joy in his heart, and a blessing in his life.

Dr. Al-Maasrawi also confirmed that the one who kept reading the Albaqara would have joys next to him and the good deeds would be multiplied over his life. So if you be close to it, you will be at ease with it. You’ll love its proximity; you will miss it. He have clarified that the one who stayed for months reading the al-baqara every night, God would change his illness wellness, his distress with joy and his hardship easily, and blessings were scattered on him from all sides and he became happy in his life.

These are the benefits of reading Surat Al-Baqara for a month

Reading Surat Al-Baqarah regularly for a month brings many benefits, as it is capable of achieving your aspirations and increasing the blessing of your life .. It relieves your distress and increases your good deeds.

Rather, Al-Maasrawi continued enumerating the virtues of Surat Al-Baqarah, that through a lot of reciting Surat Al-Baqarah, you can destroy the idols of delusions within you with an ax! Ask those who narrate it a lot about the ease in chest … and ease in the life … He will simply answer you.

The blessings of the of the Albaqara seemed clear and evident when the Messenger of God, may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him, talked about it, by saying that reading it, memorizing it and taking care of it will give you a blessing in your family, your money, your child, your body and your soul.

It is important to point out that Surah is like a date. It will not be pleasant to you until you chew it, so repeating it and striving to read the cow will inherit sweetness and joy in your life.

And continually reciting Surat Al-Baqara will bring endless bounties..! And he pays evils that he has no knowledge of..! And it has benefits that the wise person cannot dispense with. The heart will leave cruelty. And the reader tastes pleasure of being alone … and the soul lives with it the feelings of real happiness.

Virtues of Surat Al-Baqarah

The virtues of the fustat (pavilion) of Koran appear clear to the eyes, based on the fact that if there are some pains of envy, and magic in the human body, “like a rock”, then by repeating Surat Al-Baqarah which is like the hammer, so your pain will be broken  … It will diminish and disappear.”

In this context, the Islamic scholars in reading Surah Al-Baqarah agree that it is difficult at its beginning, because Satan knows the knowledge of certainty that it is very useful and does not want you to harvest its fruits. But you will be active after the page 12.
