Quran Surah 7: Surah al-A'araaf (The Elevated Places)

There are 206 verses in this 'makki' surah. It is reported from Imam Ja'faras-Sadiq (a.s.), that whoever recites this surah once a month, he will have no worry or fear on the Day of Resurrection and if it is recited on a Friday, then the reciter will be from among those who will be exempted from the taking of accounts on the Day of Judgement.

Surah al-A'araaf has the ayaat al-muhkamaat that will give witness on behalf of its reciter on the Day of Reckoning. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that there will be a veil between the reciter of this surah and Iblees on Judgement day and the reciter will be in the company of prophet Adam (a.s.)

Writing this surah with rose water and saffron and keeping the writing at all times ensures safety from enemies and wild animals.

Ayah as-Sakhrah (Surah A'araaf: 54)

This should also be recited after every prayer. The benefit of reciting this ayah is that it acts as a protection from Shaitan. It is said that the one who recites this ayah is protected against the plots of Shaitan even if he is alone in the desert.
