Secrets of the...Suras?
Salaamz y'all. I am half Persian, did you know? Like the cat, meow! Therefore, even though I was raised a boring ol' Methodist, I still have in my heart Islam. I love it but I don't know if it loves me back, what with all the Other Gods I worship.

But a few years back I found this great piece of information:
That is a link to an HTML document called 'Benefits of Certain Suras'. You never knew Islam could be so magical, did you? It reads to me kind of like 'Secrets of the Psalms'. (I keep misspelling it as 'Pslams', does anyone else do that?)

I'll add some of my favorites here so you can check it out. I love it.

Surah Hud

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that writing this surah on a sheepskin and keeping it in one’s possession at all times makes one so courageous and bold that nobody can defeat him in combat. Whoever sees him will be filled with fear.

Surah an-Nahl (The Bee)

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that whoever recites surah an-Nahl once every month, he will be safe from 70 types of diseases and will be from among the people of Jannah. This surah should, however, under no circumstance be written and kept in the house or garden as it may have harmful effects. Imam Sadiq (a.s.) has said that if kept in a house or garden, it will soon be destroyed. Indeed this is a weapon that one is only allowed to use against an evil person who is the enemy of Islam.

This next one is my favorite and by far the most important if you ask me!:

Surah Maryam

There are 99 ayaat in this ‘makki’ surah. It is written in the commentary of Majma’ul Bayan that the reward for reciting this surah is equal to ten times the number of people present at the time of Prophet Zakariyyah (a.s.), Yahya (a.s.), Isa (a.s.), Musa (a.s.), Ishaq (a.s.), Harun (a.s.), Ibrahim (a.s.), Ya’qub (a.s.) and Isma’il (a.s.) combined.

Keeping this surah (written) in the house ensures protection from thieves and Allah (s.w.t.) blesses the occupants of the house. It is also narrated that before going in the presence of a tyrant ruler, if a person recites ‘Kaf-Ha-Ya-’Ain-Saad’ and closed, with each letter, one finger of his right hand, and then recites ‘Ha-Mim-‘Ain-Seen-Qaaf’ and with each letter, closes one finger of his left hand; and then he comes in the presence of the tyrant and recites ‘wa ‘anatil wujuhu lil hayyil qayyum wa khaaba man hamala dhulma’ and then he opens his fingers, he will be protected from the evil of the tyrant.

Get married:

Surah Taha

If a girl is not getting married and she wishes to get married, she should take ghusl (bath) with water in which this surah has been dissolved and by the will of Allah (s.w.t.) she will get married.

If a man wishes to get married, he should write verses 131 and 132 of this surah with saffron and then wear it as a talisman and InshaAllah his proposal will be accepted.

Red Book of Pomba Gira, coming soon! Stay tuned.

No problem! It's a fun thing for me to get into. To me this is "magic", but in a lot of the message boards and whatnot I've been perusing, the verses are used against magic and you are not considered to be combating magic with magic whatsoever.
