Surah Yaseen as the heart of the Quran
Fatwa No: 99823


Why is Surah Yaseen referred to as the ''Heart of the Quran''.


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.


First of all, you should know that the Prophetic narration which reads “Yaseen is the heart of the Quran.” is weak, and it was reported by Imaam Ahmad and others  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them.

As regards the reason why this chapter is called the heart of the Quran, the scholars  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them stated that it is because it contains many great matters concerning confirming the Oneness of Allaah, the Resurrection, the Recompense, and so forth, so it is like a heart in its importance compared to other limbs of the body.

Allaah Knows best.
