🔘 ﻗﺎﻝ ﻣﺴﺮﻭﻕ :
« ﻣﻦ ﺳﺮﻩ ﺃﻥ ﻳﻌﻠﻢ ﻋﻠﻢ اﻷﻭﻟﻴﻦ ﻭاﻵﺧﺮﻳﻦ
ﻭﻋﻠﻢ اﻟﺪﻧﻴﺎ ﻭاﻵﺧﺮﺓ
ﻓﻠﻴﻘﺮﺃ ﺳﻮﺭﺓ اﻟﻮاﻗﻌﺔ »
{مصنف إبن أبي شيبة 34873}

One of the Imāms of the first generation of the Tābi‘īn – Masrūq, may Allah have mercy upon him – once said:

“Whoever would like to learn the knowledge of the first and the last, and the knowledge of this world and the Next, then let him recite Sūrat’l-Wāqi‘ah.”
