In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The sixth (6th) chapter of the Holy Quran is surah al an ‘am. With regards to the virtues of reciting the first three (3) verses of this chapter of the Quran after the Fajr prayers before standing up. Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti (A.R) recorded in his tafsir; Ad Durrul Manthur under the introduction of Surah Al an ‘am;

On the authority of Ibn Masoud (May Allah be pleased with him, he said: The Messenger of God (May God’s prayers and peace be upon him) said: “Whoever prays Fajr in the congregation, sits in his place of prayer, and recites three verses from the beginning of Surat Al-An’am, Allah entrusts him with seventy angels, glorifying God and asking for forgiveness for him until the day of Judgement” (Tafsir Ad Durrul Manthur, pg 11, vol 6)[1]


[1] عن ابن مسعود قال: قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه و سلم): “من صلى الفجر في جماعة، و قعد في مصلاه، و قرأ ثلاث آيات من أول سورة الأنعام، وكل الله به سبعين ملكا، يسبحون الله، و يستغفون له إلى يوم القيامة”

Only Allah knows best.
