Surah Anam, is the 69th Surah that was revealed to Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) in Mecca. As the Traditions of Ahlul-Bayt (as)indicate, all the verses of this Surah were revealed at the same time.Similar to other Makki Surahs, the basic aim of this Surah is inviting people to the triple principals of unity of Allah, Prophecy, and Resurrection, but most of all, it emphasizes on monotheism and opposing paganism and idolatry.
Paying attention carefully to the contents of the verses of this Surah can remove the soul of hypocrisy and disperse from among Muslims, and cause the ears to be hearing, the eyes to be clear-sighted, and the hearts (minds) to be knowledgeable.
About the virtue of Surah Anam, in the Islamic traditions, it is cited that when this Surat was revealed, seventy thousand angels were taking after it. And that every believer who recites it, (because of its light, his soul and self may be satiated from the spring of monotheism and) all those angels will ask forgiveness for that person.
Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said, ‘The Qur’an was revealed in one fifth part, whoever memorized it in one fifth parts would not forget it. Except for Surah al An’am, which was revealed in it’s entirety, seen off by seventy angels from each heaven until they delivered it to the Prophet. Never has it been recited over a sick person, without Allah granting him a cure’ [Baihaqi & Khatib]
