Soorah Al-Baqaraah is the longest Soorah of the Qur’aan and the Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] highlighted many of its benefits in general and some of its specific benefits. For example, the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] told us that its recitation in a house keeps the Shaietaan away. Hazrat Abu Hurairaah [Radiyal Laah Anhu] reports that Rasoolul Laah [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] said: “Do not make your houses like graves, for the Shaietaan runs away from a house in which Soorah al-Baqaraah is recited”
AL BAQARAAH (THE COW)
Alif-Laam-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language; Allaah [Ta’aalaa] and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)
This is the exalted Book (the Qur’aan), in which there is no place for doubt; a guidance for the pious.
Those who believe without seeing (the hidden), and keep the (obligatory) prayer established, and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them.
And who believe in this (Qur’aan) which has been sent down upon you, O beloved Prophet, (Muhammad – Peace and blessings be upon him) and what was sent down before you; and are certain of the Hereafter.
It is they who are on guidance from their Lord; and they are the successful.
