If you want to learn about surah Yasin benefits of reading, its message, and more then keep reading.

Why is it called Surah Yaseen?

The surah is called surah Yasin after the first two Arabic letters that it begins with.

Allah says in the surah:

 يسٓ ١

“Yâ-Sĩn.” [surah Yasin, 1]

Where was Surah Yasin revealed?

Surah Yasin was revealed to our beloved prophet while he was in Mekka, therefore it is a Makki surah. It is the surah number 36 in the holy Quran with only 83 verses that have many lessons and benefits to the reader. And it is in the Juz number 23.

Before we learn about the many benefits of reading Surah Yasin let’s first learn about its message and lessons.

What is the message of Surah Yasin and what lessons were learned from it?

The subject matter of Surah Yaseen is warning the disbelievers for not believing in Allah and the prophet. Giving them an example of what happened to the disbelievers in the past for not believing their prophets and mocking them. Allah said in the holy Quran:

وَٱضْرِبْ لَهُم مَّثَلًا أَصْحَـٰبَ ٱلْقَرْيَةِ إِذْ جَآءَهَا ٱلْمُرْسَلُونَ ١٣

Give them an example ˹O Prophet˺ of the residents of a town when the messengers came to them.

إِذْ أَرْسَلْنَآ إِلَيْهِمُ ٱثْنَيْنِ فَكَذَّبُوهُمَا فَعَزَّزْنَا بِثَالِثٍۢ فَقَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّآ إِلَيْكُم مُّرْسَلُونَ ١٤

We sent them two messengers, but they rejected both. So We reinforced the two˺ with a third, and they declared, “We have indeed been sent to you ˹as messengers˺.”

قَالُوا۟ مَآ أَنتُمْ إِلَّا بَشَرٌۭ مِّثْلُنَا وَمَآ أَنزَلَ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنُ مِن شَىْءٍ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلَّا تَكْذِبُونَ ١٥

The people replied, “You are only humans like us, and the Most Compassionate has not revealed anything. You are simply lying!” [surah Yasin, 13:15]

From the benefit of reading surah Yasin is learning from its many lessons.

No matter what the prophets did to call their people to worship and believe in Allah they choose to overlook the truth. It’s a choice they make and they refuse to open their eyes and see the truth that is right in front of them.

 لِتُنذِرَ قَوْمًۭا مَّآ أُنذِرَ ءَابَآؤُهُمْ فَهُمْ غَـٰفِلُونَ ٦

so that you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, and so are heedless.

لَقَدْ حَقَّ ٱلْقَوْلُ عَلَىٰٓ أَكْثَرِهِمْ فَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ ٧

The decree of torment˺ has already been justified against most of them, for they will never believe.

إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا فِىٓ أَعْنَـٰقِهِمْ أَغْلَـٰلًۭا فَهِىَ إِلَى ٱلْأَذْقَانِ فَهُم مُّقْمَحُونَ ٨

It is as if We have put shackles around their necks up to their chins, so their heads are forced up,

وَجَعَلْنَا مِنۢ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ سَدًّۭا وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّۭا فَأَغْشَيْنَـٰهُمْ فَهُمْ لَا يُبْصِرُونَ ٩

and have placed a barrier before them and a barrier behind them and covered them ˹all˺ up, so they fail to see the truth.

وَسَوَآءٌ عَلَيْهِمْ ءَأَنذَرْتَهُمْ أَمْ لَمْ تُنذِرْهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ ١٠

It is the same whether you warn them or not—they will never believe.” [surah Yasin, 6:10]


We also learn about the many blessings that Allah blessed us with, the rewards of the believers in the afterlife, and the punishment of the disbelievers.

 We mentioned the above Daif hadith just for you to be aware that they are not authentic hadiths when you read them.

Surah Yaseen in English.

Now that we have learned about the benefit of reading surah yasin, let’s recite some of its verses:

“In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Ya Sin.

By the Quran, full of Wisdom,-

Thou art indeed one of the messengers,

On a Straight Way.

It is a Revelation sent down by (Him), the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.

In order that thou mayest admonish a people, whose fathers had received no admonition, and who therefore remain heedless (of the Signs of Allah).

The Word is proved true against the greater part of them: for they do not believe.

We have put yokes round their necks right up to their chins so that their heads are forced up (and they cannot see).

And We have put a bar in front of them and a bar behind them, and further, We have covered them up; so that they cannot see.

The same is it to them whether thou admonish them or thou do not admonish them: they will not believe.

Thou canst but admonish such a one as follows the Message and fears the (Lord) Most Gracious, unseen: give such a one, therefore, good tidings, of Forgiveness and a Reward most generous.

Verily We shall give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before and that which they leave behind, and of all things have We taken account in a clear Book (of evidence).

Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came messengers to it.

When We (first) sent to them two messengers, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, “Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you.”

The (people) said: “Ye are only men like ourselves, and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie.”

They said: “Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you:

“And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message.”

The (people) said: “For us, we augur an evil omen from you: if ye desist not, we will certainly stone you. And a grievous punishment indeed will be inflicted on you by us.”

They said: “Your evil omens are with yourselves: (deem ye this an evil omen). If ye are admonished? Nay, but ye are a people transgressing all bounds!”

Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, “O my people! Obey the messengers:

“Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance.

“It would not be reasonable in me if I did not serve Him Who created me, and to Whom ye shall (all) be brought back.

“Shall I take (other) gods besides Him? If (Allah) Most Gracious should intend some adversity for me, of no use whatever will be their intercession for me, nor can they deliver me.

“I would indeed if I were to do so, be in manifest Error.

“For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!”

It was said: “Enter thou the Garden.” He said: “Ah me! Would that my People knew (what I know)!-

“For that, my Lord has granted me Forgiveness and has enrolled me among those held in honor!”

And We sent not down against his People, after him, any hosts from heaven, nor was it needful for Us so to do.

It was no more than a single mighty Blast, and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent.

Ah! Alas for (My) Servants! There comes not a messenger to them but they mock him!

See they not how many generations before them we destroyed? Not to them will they return:

But each one of them all – will be brought before Us (for judgment).

A Sign for them is the earth that is dead: We do give it life and produce grain therefrom, of which ye do eat.

And We produce therein orchard with date-palms and vines, and We cause springs to gush forth therein:

That they may enjoy the fruits of this (artistry): It was not their hands that made this: will they not then give thanks?”
