In the blessed time of Prophet صل الله عليه و سلم there were two brothers. Of these two brothers, one would
come to the blessed court of the Holy Prophet صل الله عليه و سلم (in order to seek knowledge of Islam). The other brother was labourer. One day, the other brother who was a labourer, complained about his brother to the Beloved Prophet صل الله عليه و سلم (that he has placed the entire burden of earning onto me, and he should help me in labour). The Prophet صل الله عليه و سلم replied لعلك ترزق به i.e. it might be that you are receiving sustenance by virtue of him.’ (JAMIA TRMIZI)
Excellences of Surah Waqi’ah
This Surah is highly blessed. It is reported by Sayyiduna Anas that the Prophet of Allah صل الله عليه و سلم has stated, ‘Surah Waqi’ah is the Surah of affluence (i.e. prosperity), so recite it and teach it to your children.’
Sayyiduna ‘Ušman visited Sayyiduna Ibn Mas’ud Razi ALLAh anhu when he was on his death bed, and said to him,
‘Should I grant you something from the treasury; what would you say?’ He replied, ‘There is no need for it.’
Sayyiduna ‘Ušman RAZI ALLAH ANHU then said, ‘It will be useful for your daughters after you.’ Ibn Mas’ud
replied, ‘You are afraid of my daughters falling into poverty and hunger, but I have ordered them to recite Surah Waqi’ah every night. I heard the Prophet of Allah صل الله عليه و سلم saying, ‘Whoever recites Surah Waqi’ah every night will never be afflicted with poverty or hunger.’..
And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers .And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.
