Quran Surah 19: Surah Maryam (Miriam)

There are 99 ayaat in this 'makki' surah. It is written in the commentary of Majma'ul Bayan that the reward for reciting this surah is equal to ten times the number of people present at the time of Prophet Zakariyyah (a.s.), Yahya (a.s.), Isa (a.s.), Musa (a.s.), Ishaq (a.s.), Harun (a.s.), Ibrahim (a.s.), Ya'qub (a.s.) and Isma'il (a.s.) combined.

Keeping this surah (written) in the house ensures protection from thieves and Allah (s.w.t.) blesses the occupants of the house. It is also narrated that before going in the presence of a tyrant ruler, if a person recites 'Kaf-Ha-Ya-'Ain-Saad' and closes, with each letter, one finger of his right hand, and then recites 'Ha-Mim-'Ain-Seen-Qaaf' and, with each letter, closes one finger of his left hand; and then he comes in the presence of the tyrant and recites 'wa 'anatil wujuhu lil hayyil qayyum wa khaaba man hamala dhulma' ("And all faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence, and he will have failed who carries injustice") and then he opens his fingers, he will be protected from the evil of the tyrant.
