People are unaware of the virtues and the benefits of Surah Baqarah and they take it very lightly. If people knew what Surah Baqarah can do for them in this world and the next world, they will never let it go from their lives.
The prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم have said: “Read (constantly) Surah Baqarah, because reading it is (a source of) blessing and leaving it is sorrow, and magicians have no power over it.”
Three Virtues of Reciting the Last Verses of Surah al-Baqarah
It is reported from Sayyiduna Nu’man bin Bashir رضي الله عنه that the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم has stated, ‘Two thousand years before the creation of the earth and the skies, Allah wrote a book, and then from this, He revealed the last verses of Surah al-Baqarah. Shytan will not come close to the home in which these two verses will be recited for three nights.’
. It is reported from Sayyiduna Abu Zar رضي الله عنه that the Beloved and Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم has stated, ‘The final two verses of Surah al-Baqarah are from that treasure of Allah which is beneath the Divine Throne. bestowed me with these two verses; learn these and teach them to your women as these are Mercy, nearness
to Allah and Du’a [supplication].’
. It is reported from Sayyiduna Abu Mas’ud رضي الله عنه that the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم has stated, ‘Whosever recites the last two verses of Surah al- Baqarah at night, these will suffice for him.’ ( Bukhari,)
These two verses of Surah al-Baqarah being sufficient means that the recitation of these verses will be equivalent to his spending the night in worship or these will protect him from Shaytan during that night. According to one reference, they will protect him from calamities which might descend during that nigh.
