I am reading a collection of prayers called “Majmuah Wazaif”; it is published by the Chaand Company of Lahore, Pakistan. This book has some particular Surahs (set of Quranic verses also called “Chapters”) as well as different ways of praying each of them.
Next to “Surah Noah” the description of recitation is as follows
If someone is under severe danger from an enemy and getting away is impossible, then read this Surah 1000 times. You can also read it in a group that has an odd number of people. Read it one seating.
I know that some people would dedicate an entire day to read it 1000 times; I am planning to do the same because I have been reading blog posts by some people who need some real help and because I need to ask God to help me on certain tasks. In the past, I have recited some prayers sometimes exactly according to description─like the above quoted details─and other times a little farther away from the description. I strongly believe that God sees one struggle and does not look for perfection when granting something.
“Surah Nuh (Noah)” discusses the story of Prophet Nuh who is mentioned in the Torah, Bible, and Quran. He is the guy who built the Ark with the help of angels. Read article “Prophet Nuh (Noah), the Ark and the Flood in the Islamic Teachings“.
The website Quran.com shares the complete “Surah Nuh (Noah)” here.
I am now going to share a real story with you before I leave. I used to pray a lot; and, I used to pray in a specific manner. When my needs arose, my prayers started to get accepted─I think my lucid nature also played a role in this. I started calling my prayers, “The Silver Bullet” because I was given exactly what I asked for. Believe in God; and, God will protect you while you are alive or dead.
