Yaseen Khatam

Q: Please can you advise if there is a Hadith in the reading of a Yassen Khatem for a sick person? A person is seriously ill in intensive care and a suggestion is made to read Yaseen Khatem for shifa. Is this according to the Shariah? What number constitutes a Khatem?


A: It is permissible. This is a type of treatment and a treatment does not require a hadeeth to support it.

There is nothing hard and fast in this respect. It is based on experience.
