Loh-e-Qurani (لوحِ قرآنی) is a collection (table) of Huroof-e-Muqattaat found in the Holy Quran. These blessed words are a divine secret and they appear at the beginning of 29 Surahs, just after Bismillah. Five Surahs are named for their Muqattaat: Taa-Haa (Chapter 20), Yaa-Seen (Chapter 36), Saad (Chapter 38), Haa-Meem as-Sajdah (Fussilat, Chapter 41) and Qaaf (Chapter 50). Seven consecutive chapters (Surahs 40-46) of the Quran begin with Haa-Meem. The Juz 1 (Alif-Laam-Meem) and Juz 26 (Haa-Meem) of the Quran are also known by their commencing Muqattaat. These words also appear in some duas (like Hizbul Bahr) where they are used as Asma-e-Husna (Attributes of Allah ﷻ)




The Hirz of Abu Dujana (رضي الله عنه), a letter given to him by the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) ordering the mischievous jinn and devils not to trouble him, mentions these Muqattaat.

Hazrat Ali (رضي الله عنه) has stated that,

لكل شيء صفوة ، وصفوة هذا الكتاب حروف التهجي

"Everything has an essence and the essence of Quran are the Muqattaat"

(Tabrani in Tafseer-e-Kabeer, 1/8)

Al-Muhallab bin Abi Sufrah (رضي الله عنه) narrated that Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said,

إِنْ بَيَّتَكُمُ الْعَدُوُّ فَقُولُوا‏:‏ حم لاَ يُنْصَرُونَ

"If you suffer a surprise attack from the enemy then say 'Haa-Meem La Yunsaroon."

(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1682)

As per some scholars Loh-e-Qurani possesses Ism-e-Azam (the Greatest Name of Allah ﷻ). Keeping a copy of the Loh at one's place and its recitation is believed to be useful in:

  • Blessings in home and family
  • Profit in work or business
  • Overcome difficulties
  • Protection against Jinn (spirits), Jadoo (magic), Buri Nazar (evil eye) and Hasad (envy)
  • Rid from enemies and domestic tensions
  • Increase in Rizq (provisions) and wealth
  • Fulfillment of wishes

(إن شاء الله)


As per the Ulama, to get the benefits of the Loh, it should be carefully gazed at and recited as follows:

  • Three times after Fajr daily
  • Before starting any important work
  • Nine times after Isha daily
