Question: Some students of Daar Al-Hadeeth in Al-Madeenah Al-Munawwarah came to me and gave me a booklet called: “The Saving Surahs” including Suwar Al-Kahf, Al-Sajdah, Yaaseen, Fussilat, Al-Dukhaan, Al-Waaqi`ah, Al-Hashr, and Al-Mulk. They said that they have distributed many copies in Makkah, Al-Madeenah, and other places. Is there any evidence that they can be given this name and description?
