Quran Surah 42: Surah ash-Shura (The Council)

This surah has 53 ayaat and it was revealed in Makkah. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said that the one who recites this surah will be from among those people on whom the angels send salutations and pray for their forgiveness.

It is narrated from Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that whoever recites this surah will be raised on the Day of Reckoning with a face as bright as the fullmoon and he will be told : 'You are from those who used to recite ash-Shura. If you knew the reward for this, you would never have felt tired of reciting it.' The angels will then be ordered to take him to Jannah where he will find a palace made of red rubies. There will be two huries and a thousand slaves in that palace.

If this surah is written and kept as a talisman, it becomes a means of protection and drinking water in which this surah has been dissolved is especially good for those intending to travel as it provides for a journey without unforeseen problems.
