I began to become a lot more ‘interested’ in Surah Mu’minoon after listening to this rendition of Surah Mu’minoon. I then looked at the translation, and the first few verses really caught my eye.
Certainly, the faithful have attained salvation
—those who are humble in their prayers,
who avoid vain talk,
who carry out their [duty of] zakāt,
and those who keep their trusts and covenants,
and who are watchful of their prayers.
This Surah was revealed in Makkah and it has 118 verses. The Holy Prophet (S.) has said that the reciter of this Surah will feel great comfort when the angel of death comes to take his soul and he will be given the good news of his position by angels.
It is narrated from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that whoever recites this Surah on every Friday, he will have a great status in the hereafter and will be in the company of prophets. If this Surah is written (at night) and put on the neck of a drunkard, he will start hating intoxicating drinks and will stop this bad habit.
