Hadith on Quran: Parable of Surat al-Baqarah and Ali ‘Imran

Buraydah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Learn Surat al-Baqarah, for adhering to it is blessed, leaving it is sorrow, and the sorcerers cannot defeat it. Learn al-Baqarah and Ali ‘Imran, for they are both the brightly illuminated chapters coming on the Day of Resurrection as if they were two clouds, or two canopies of shade, or as If they are a decisive wall of birds in ranks, arguing on behalf of their reciters.
