Aspire of this study is to study the effect of heat source, suction/injection, and chemical reaction on dissipative and radiative MHD flow of a Casson fluid over an exponentially permeable stretching sheet. Series solutions are obtained for converted non-dimensional ordinary differential equations using an analytical technique known as the homotopy analysis method (HAM). A decisive approach of convergence of series solutions is also furnished. The acquired results are in excellent correlation with the previous results. The nature of different parameters like the magnetic parameter, exponential parameter, suction/injection parameter, the Casson parameter, radiation parameter, the Prandtl number, the Eckert number, heat source parameter, Schmidt number, and chemical reaction parameter are discussed using tables and graphs.
