Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِی الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ الْکُوفِیِّ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ فَرْقَدٍ عَنِ الْحَکَمِ بْنِ ظُهَیْرٍ عَنْ أَبِی صَالِحٍ عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ: مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَهَ الْأَنْعَامِ فِی کُلِّ لَیْلَهٍ کَانَ مِنَ الْآمِنِینَ یَوْمَ الْقِیَامَهِ وَ لَمْ یَرَ بِعَیْنِهِ النَّارَ أَبَداً-


1. It is narrated from Ibne Abbas that one who recites Surah Anaam every night would remain safe on the Day of Judgment and would never see the fire of Hell.




وَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع نَزَلَتْ سُورَهُ الْأَنْعَامِ جُمْلَهً وَاحِدَهً شَیَّعَهَا سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ مَلَکٍ حَتَّی نَزَلَتْ عَلَی مُحَمَّدٍ ص فَعَظِّمُوهَا وَ بَجِّلُوهَا فَإِنَّ اسْمَ اللَّهِ فِیهَا فِی سَبْعِینَ مَوْضِعاً وَ لَوْ عَلِمَ النَّاسُ مَا فِیهَا مَا تَرَکُوهَا.


2. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says, “Surah Anaam was revealed whole at once. Seventy thousand angels kept watch on it when it was revealed on Muhammad (s.a.w.s.). Hence it should be regarded as an honored Surah and must be respected. If people had known what is there in it they would have never ignored it.”
