113 – Al Falaq – The Daybreak

Sura Al Naas and Sura Al Falaq are known as Maudhatayn (The two protectors). Both were revealed simultaneously. Between Al Falaq and Al Naas there are 5 ‘sharrs’ (evils – that which cause harm) from which protection is sought.
This sura acknowledges Allah’s power to bring light into the darkness and discusses seeking refuge in Him from the potential of the evil of creation, utter darkness (ignorance), ‘blowing on knots’ (sorcery) and from those who are jealous.
