“This point shows that Surat Al Baqarah, Surah Al Imran, and Surah Nisa were recited in one rak’ah by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). He did not reach a verse that spoke of mercy, but he asked Allah to grant it, nor a verse that told of punishment, but he requested protection from it.”
Reciting Surah Nisa can also remove the fear of anything from hearts.

“Reciting surah Nisa’ is like giving alms to all those who have left an inheritance, and its reward is like freeing slaves. Polytheism and shirk will be distanced from such a person, and God will forgive him of his sins. “ (Ṭabrisī, Majmaʿ al-bayān, vol. 3, p. 5.)
Finding Lost Things
“If a person has lost anything precious or he has placed that thing somewhere but didn’t find it, then he should recite Surah Nisa to find that lost thing.”(Kafʿamī, Miṣbāḥ, p. 454.)
