There are many virtues of reciting the Quran, and the last ten surahs are among the easiest chapters of the Quran that we can recite. Ideally, Muslims should learn as much of the Quran as possible. That allows them to know and recite various surahs during salah, etc. However, that may not be feasible for everyone, and that’s where the last ten surahs come in.
Additionally, young children who are starting to read and learn the Quran can begin by learning the last ten surahs. They are very easy to learn; with a little bit of practice, almost anyone can memorize them in just a few days. Then, you can utilize them during salah and integrate them into duas. You also gain many rewards and other benefits.
Moreover, even non-Arabic speakers or people who can’t read Arabic can memorize these surahs. They can do that by simply listening to them and then repeating them. Many new Muslims do this since reading and learning Quranic Arabic can be a lengthy process. Instead, it’s easier to simply listen to the Quran and then repeat it as a form of memorization.
The importance of these surahs isn’t restricted to just learning and memorizing them. Indeed, they have deep meanings and importance, as is the case with all surahs in the Quran. After all, they are part of Allah’s Word. Hence, Muslims should not only look to learn them by heart. They should also try to understand their meanings and significance.
Surah al-Ikhlaas, which is one of these last ten surahs, is one of the most critical chapters in the Quran. It’s very short, only a few verses long. However, it contains a very powerful overview of the Oneness of Allah. So, these surahs are all very important.
