Qur’an Mondays: Surah Ibrahim and Surah Infitar – Raad Muhammad al-Kurdi

My new favourite Qari is Raad Muhammad al-Kurdi as you can probably guess by a fair few Qur’an Mondays have had recitations by him. This once in particular, I like to listen with my earphones in and just take in the beautiful voice that is Muhammad al-Kurdi


Surah Ibrahim
This is a ‘makki’ Surah that has 52 ayaat. It is narrated by Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq that whoever recites Surah Ibrahim and Surah Hijr in a two-rak’aat prayer on every Friday, he will remain safe from poverty, insanity and sudden calamity.

In the commentary of Burhan, it is mentioned that writing this Surah on a white parchment and then making a child wear it as a talisman keeps the child safe from ailments and makes it easy for him to drink and digest milk.

Surah al-Infitaar (The Cleaving Asunder)
There are 19 ayaat in this Surah and it was revealed in Makkah. The Holy Prophet (S) said that if a person recites this Surah frequently in his prayers then on the Day of Judgement there will be no curtain between Allah (S.w.T.) and himself and when his book of deeds will be opened, Allah (S.w.T.) will protect him from humiliation.

If a prisoner writes this Surah and keeps it with him, he will be released sooner and he will be saved from any dangers. It is narrated from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq that even if the sins of the one who recites this Surah are equal to the drops of rain, he will still be forgiven. This Surah is also good for the eyes and one should blow gently into the eyes after reciting this Surah.
