The last 3 verses of Surah Hashr refer to ayahs 22-24 of the 59th chapter of the Quran. They talk about some of the names and traits of Allah. In fact, these 3 verses contain the highest concentration of Allah’s names in the Quran and are particularly easy to memorize and pleasant to listen to.
Translation of the last 3 verses of Surah Hashr:
He is Allah—there is no god worthy of worship except Him: Knower of the seen and unseen. He is the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful. He is Allah—there is no god except Him: the King, the Most Holy, the All-Perfect, the Source of Serenity, the Watcher of all, the Almighty, the Supreme in Might, the Majestic. Glorified is Allah far above what they associate with Him in worship! He is Allah: the Creator, the Inventor, the Shaper. He alone has the Most Beautiful Names. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth constantly glorifies Him. And He is the Almighty, All-Wise.

Why are the verses of Surah Hashr important?
One of the main ways of learning about Allah is to learn His names and attributes, because they are a reminder to us as to who He is and so we don’t forget. There probably isn’t a page in the Quran which doesn’t mention some of His attributes and why is this? Because when you study His names and attributes, your faith in Allah increases. When you read a verse of the Quran which ends in one of His names, it guides you to what should be understood.
Surah Hashr verses benefit from hadith
In a hadith narrated by Ma’qil bin Yasar (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever says three times when he gets up in the morning:
I seek refuge with Allah, the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing, from the accursed Satan
and he recites three Ayat from the end of Surah Al-Hashr
Allah appoints seventy-thousand angels who say Salat upon him until the evening. If he dies on that day, he dies a martyr, and whoever reaches the evening, he holds the same status.”(Tirmidhi)
