Benefits of reciting Surah E Baqarah
There are many benefits of reciting Surah E Baqarah.
• It is said by Holy Prophet (PBUH) that:-
اقْرَأُوا الْبَقَرَةَ فَإِنَّ أَخْذَهَا بَرَكَةٌ وَتَرْكَهَا حَسْرَةٌ وَلَا تَسْتَطِيعُهَا الْبَطَلَة
"Learn Surah Al-Baqarah, because in learning it there is blessing, in ignoring it there is sorrow, and the sorceresses cannot memorize it".
• If we recite Surah E Baqarah regularly Shaytan will not entered in our house. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) said t that:-
“Do not turn your houses into graves. Verily, Shaytan does not enter the house where surah Al-Baqarah is recited"

If a person recites the last 3 verses of Surah E Baqarah Shaytan which are Saytan will remain away from him and his family too. The last 3 verses are:-
To Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and in the earth. And, whether you reveal what is in your hearts or conceal it, Allah shall bring you to account for it. He may then forgive whom He will and punish whom He will, for Allah has power over everything. The Messenger believed in what was sent to him by his Lord and (so did) the believers. They all believed in Allah, His angels, His Scriptures and His Messengers, (declaring), ‘We make no distinction between any of His Messengers.' They said, ‘We heard and obeyed: Your forgiveness O our Lord. Unto You is the return. Allah charges no soul save to its capacity.620 To it what it strove for and upon it what it earned. ‘Our Lord! Do not take us to task for what we forgot or erred.622 Our Lord! Lay not upon us a burden as You laid upon those before us. Our Lord! Do not charge us with what we do not have the strength for. Pardon us, forgive us and have mercy upon us. You are our Protector, therefore, give us victory over the unbelieving people.
• Ayat Ul Kursi which is the 255th verse of Surah E Baqarah has a lot of blessings. The person who recites this verse saves himself from many troubles.
“Allah! There is no deity but He: the Living, the Self subsisting by whom all subsist. Slumber does not overtake Him nor does sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Who is there that can intercede with Him save by His leave?548 He knows what lies ahead of them and what is behind them, while they comprehend not aught of His knowledge, save such as He wills. His Kursi550 extends over the heavens and the earth; and their preservation tires Him not. He is the Exalted, the Supreme.”
