Authenticity of the Hadith Stating that Surah Yaa Seen is the Heart of the Quraan

by The Albaani Blog


إِنَّ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَلْبًا، وَقَلْبُ القُرْآنِ يس، وَمَنْ قَرَأَ يس كَتَبَ اللهُ لَهُ بِقِرَاءَتِهَا قِرَاءَةَ القُرْآنِ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ

From Anas who said that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Indeed everything has a heart and the heart of the Quraan is Yaa Seen. Whoever recites Yaa Seen, then Allaah will write for his recitation that he recited the Quraan ten times.”

Reported in Sunan at-Tirmidhee, no., 2887, and Shaikh al-Albaani declared it to be fabricated [mawdoo]. See ad-Da’eefah, no. 169.
