Reciting Surah Yasin ten times

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

What is the status of this Hadith?

Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Indeed for everything there is a heart, and the Quran’s heart is [Surah] Yasin. Whoever recites Yasin, then for its recitation, Allah writes for him that he recited the Quran ten times.” (Tirmidhi)



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith and declared it weak.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2887. Also see: Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 377)


Other Muhaddithun were of the view that the Hadith is unreliable.

(Refer: Al Muntakhab Minal ‘Ilal Lil Khallal of Hafiz Ibn Qudamah Al Maqdisi, pg. 97-98, ‘Ilalul Hadith, vol. 3 pg. 42 and Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 5 pg. 47-48)



Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded a narration which also labels Surah Yasin as the heart of the Quran. See here.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
