Hadith or Benefit

Ad-Darimi recorded that Ash-Sha`bi said that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud (R.A) (R.A) said, “Whoever recites verses (001, 002, 003, 004, 005, 255, 256, 257, 284, 285 & 286) from Surat Al-Baqarah in a night, then Shaytan will not enter his house that night. In another narration, Ibn Mas`ud (R.A) (R.A) said, “Then Shaytan will not come near him or his family, nor will he be touched by anything that he dislikes. Also, if these verses were to be recited over a senile person, they would wake him up.”
