This sura is the final sura of the Qur’an. The beginning of the Qur’an is a chapter on the realisation that the only path of success is through glorification, dua and praise of Allah. The final is concerned with taking refuge. This sura complements Suratlu Falaq. We are seeking refuge in the Lord, King, God of mankind; from ‘waswas’ which is the subtle whispering within our innermost being that incites us to evil. It is said that there are sources or rivers which feed the ‘waswas’. Some of them being greed, unrealistic expectations, pride, stinginess, love of the world… The Jinn are unseen and hidden from man but have their limitations and states just as man does. Therefore, we are asking for refuge for protection from the energies whose nature we do not understand, and whose creation is not visible to us.
