Surah Al-Falaq - The Daybreak

Bism-illah Hir Rahman ir Rahim


1. Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the Daybreak

2. From the evil of that which He created;

3. From the evil of the darkness when it is intense,

4. And from the evil of malignant witchcraft,

(A common form of witchcraft in Arabia for women to tie knots in a cord and blow upon them with an imprecation)

5. And from the evil of the envier when he envieth.


(Surah Falaq and Surah Nas are prayers for protection. They are known as ‘Al-Mu’awwadhateyn’ with Surah Falaq protecting from the unknown and Surah Nas from the evil in a man’s own heart and in the hearts of other men)

Surah No. 113
