Answer:

 

Which surah to recite daily

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 73 Surah Muzammil verse 20:

20 The Lord doth know that thou (O Prophet (saws)) standest forth (in prayer) nigh two-thirds of the night, or half the night, or a third of the night, and so doth a party of those with thee. But Allah doth appoint Night and Day in due measure. He knoweth that ye are unable to keep count thereof. So He hath turned to you (in mercy): recite ye therefore of the Qur'an as much as may be easy for you. He knoweth that there may be (some) among you in ill-health; others traveling through the land seeking of Allah's bounty; yet others fighting in Allah's Cause. Read ye therefore as much of the Qur'an as may be easy (for you); and establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan. And whatever good ye send forth for your souls Ye shall find it in Allah's presence yea better and greater in Reward. And seek ye the Grace of Allah: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

 

Time and time again Allah Subhanah and His Messenger (saws) guided the believers to recite as much of the Glorious Quran as was easy and convenient for themand the general practice of the noble companions of the Prophet (saws) was to recite the Glorious Quran from its start to its finish once in at least seven days.

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2137 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "If anyone recites a letter from Allah's Book he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim are one letter, but alif is a letter, lam is a letter and mim is a letter."

 

Your Question: .I know that the Some Surath is for daily reciting.   Which Surath is that and What is the reward if one recite daily?

Respected brother in Islam, although the general guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) was to recite the Glorious Quran from its start to its finish.there are indeed some verses or small Surahs of the Quran which the Messenger of Allah (saws) guided and encouraged the believers to recite on a daily basis:

  • The 112th Surah Al-Ikhlaas
  • The 113th Surah Al-Falaq
  • The 114th Surah An-Naas
  • The Aayat ul-Kursi Verse 255 of Surah 2 Al-Baqarah
  • The verses 285 and 286 of Surah 2 Al-Baqarah

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2173 Narrated by Jubayr ibn Nufayr

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah finished Surah al-Baqarah with two verses (285 and 286) which I have been given from His Treasure which is under the Throne; so learn them and teach them to your womenfolk, for they are a blessing, a means of a approach (to Allah) and a supplication."

 

Abu Umamah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, ".For whoever recites the Aayat ul Kursi (Surah 2 al-Baqarah 255) at the end of every prayer, nothing will prevent him from entering Paradise except that (he must) die (first)."

Abu Sa'id reported that the Prophet (saws) asked, "Can anyone of you recite a third of the Qur'an during the night?" The companions considered this rather difficult and they said, "Who among us can do so, O Messenger of Allah (saws)?" Thereupon the Prophet (saws) said, "(Say:) He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is he begotten; and there is none like unto Him.'' (The reference here is to the recitation of Surah 112 Suratul Ikhlaas of the Qur'an, which the Prophet (saws) described as equivalent to reciting one-third of the Qur'an.)

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.536A Narrated by Aisha

Whenever the Prophet (saws) retired to bed every night, he (saws) used to cup his hands together and blow over it after reciting Surah Al-Ikhlaas, Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Naas, and then rub his hands over whatever parts of his body he was able to rub, starting with his head, face and front of his body. He (saws) used to do that three times.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
