Q: I hope you are doing good. I have a question about ayat e karima. I was born and raised in South Asia so people over their have gatherings where they finish 125000 times ayat e karima. I have heard many times that you need to finish it 125000 times for a specific problem. I am going through some extremely serious problems of my life. I have two questions.
1. I am reading ayat e kareema all night from 12:00am-fajar and finishing 11000 times daily. I have heard that if I finish it in 40 days Insha Allah my troubles and problems will be gone by the blessing and mercy of Allah. I wanted to confirm the authenticity of the number.
2. The second and last question is one of the aamils told me that if I will read it so much, it’s so jalali that it can also harm me or make me crazy or something and I am like how Allah’s ayah can drive someone crazy. Zikr is always a source of relief and peace. How could that be please guide me here.
1. This is just a treatment, it is not from the hadeeth. It is permissible to employ a treatment based on experience.
2. Don’t pay attention to this. Do how much you can manage easily.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
