While all the chapters (surahs) of the Quran contain the speech of Allah and are equal in this regard, some of them have been accorded certain special merits and virtues. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) would read certain surahs on certain days, while others were read for certain purposes. This book highlights virtues and merits of different chapters using authentic traditions of the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace).
