Answered by Shaykh Ilyas Patel

Please could you tell me what the benefits of learning the Surah Yasin are and also for reciting it?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, ‘Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people.’ [Bazzar]

(S.Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Tafsir-al-Sabuni Vol.2)

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur’an ten times.’

It has been reported by Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said that there is a sura in the Qur’an that intercedes for its reciter and forgive its listener. Know! It is Sura Yasin. It is called ‘Mu’amma’ in the Torah. It was enquired, what is Mu’amma? The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) it embraces the person with the goodness of this world and removes the dismay of the Hereafter.’ (Hashiya of Tafsir Jalalalayn , pg 368)

On the authority of Ma’qil ibn Yasar from the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace said, ‘Recite Yasin on your deceased.’ (Abu Dawud, Nasa’I,Ibn Maja) [Imam Nawawi, Al-Tibyan li-Hamalati’l-Qur’an pg 168]
