Thawāb al-Aʿmāl wa ʿiqāb al-Aʿmāl > Reward of reciting Surah Rahman
Hadith #2

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ یَعْقُوبَ بْنِ یَزِیدَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِی عُمَیْرٍ عَنْ هِشَامٍ أَوْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَهَ الرَّحْمَنِ فَقَالَ عِنْدَ کُلِ فَبِأَیِّ آلاءِ رَبِّکُما تُکَذِّبانِ لَا بِشَیْ ءٍ مِنْ آلَائِکَ رَبِّ أُکَذِّبُ فَإِنْ قَرَأَهَا لَیْلًا ثُمَّ مَاتَ مَاتَ شَهِیداً- وَ إِنْ قَرَأَهَا نَهَاراً ثُمَّ مَاتَ مَاتَ شَهِیداً.

2. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ya’qub b. Yazid from Ibn Abi ’Umayr from Hisham or some of our companions from the one the person that narrated to him from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “One who recites Surah Rahman should say Laa bi-shai-im min aalaa-ika rabbi ukadhdhib whenever he reaches Fa bi-ayyi aalaa-I rabbikumaa tukadhdhibaan. If a person recites it at night and dies he would be considered a martyr and if he recites it during day and dies then too he would be considered a martyr.”
