As its first verse is nearer to ismi azam (the great name of Allah) than the white from the pupil of the eye; there is praise of Allah in the beginning, tawhid (oneness) in the middle and prayer in the end; no salat is valid without its recitation; it is superior than all the treasures stored in the arsh, (Shaytan runs away whenever it is recited; therefore:
recite 70 times to remove pains and ailments;

recite 7 times or seventy times keeping the mouth near the forehead and putting the right hand on the forehead of the sick person, then surely recovery is guaranteed;
recite bismillahir rahmanir rahim to stay away from the burning fire of hell;
recite bismillahir rahmanir rahim to receive the recompense of four thousand virtues for its every letter, to cancell the punishment of four thousand transgressions and to occupy a position four thousand degrees higher than what you deserve;
while crossing the pul sirat (bridge to paradise) whoever recites bismillahir rahmanir rahim would hear a voice from the flames of the fire, saying: “O believer, your light has put off my heat.”
when a teacher teaches bismillahir rahmanir rahim to a child the merciful Allah grants amnesty from punishment to the teacher and parents if they have sinned.
recite surah al Fatihah to cure any disease save the deadly disease which is the cause of the inevitable death.
