If you desire a successful, happy and powerful material life in this dunya, you need to gain benefits of Surah Falaq and Naas as according to scholars, these two Quran Surahs were specifically revealed to resolve worldly problems.

In this post, we are going to discuss some of the key virtues and benefits these two concise, yet powerful Surahs offer to their reciters. 

Virtue & importance

Uqbah Bin Ami Al Juhin (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated: "The Prophet SAW said, 'Allah has revealed to me Ayat the likes of which have not been seen.' 'Say I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind,' Until the end of the Surah (Naas). 'Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of Al Falaq,' Until the end of the Surah (Falaq)."

Surah Falaq and Naas benefits


Stick to these two chapters of the Quran by reciting & memorizing them in your own language, understanding their meaning and understanding the threats mentioned in them, and thanking God for doing us a huge favor as He wants to protect us and enable us to live a fulfilled life through these verses. 

Here are 8 Quran-Hadith and evidence-based benefits discussed in detail.

1) Cure from diseases and serious illnesses

Surah Falaq and Naas are the best remedy for fatal illnesses and diseases. The second verse of Surah Falaq is all about seeking God's protection from the evil of every created thing and this also includes health-related issues such as:
  • All kinds of sickness and fevers
  • Chronic and life-threatening diseases
  • Mental illness such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, all kinds of phobia
  • Anything that negatively impacts a person's health and physical life. 

Hadith: How Prophet Mohammad SAW used both Surahs for sickness

Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) narrated: "Whenever Allah's Messenger SAW became sick, he would recite Mu'awwidhat (Surah Falaq and Surah Naas) and then blew His breath over His body. When he became seriously ill, I used to recite (these two Surahs) and rub his hands over his body hoping for its blessings." [Bukhari 5016] 

2) Safety from evil of every created thing

The two Surahs have been revealed to keep us protected from the evil of every created thing. The evil of every created thing means "everything we come in contact with and experience." 

Min Sharri ma khalaq
"(I seek protection) From the evil of what He (Allah) has created" Surah Falaq verse 2

Evil can manifest itself in two forms: 

⃝ The things that humans usually consider dangerous to their life & existence such as:
  • Injurious & harmful animals like poisonous snakes, scorpions, rabid dogs roaming the streets 
  • Natural calamities & disasters like Earthquakes, floods, heat wave, blistering cold, landsliding, hurricanes and tornadoes 
  • Insects like dengue-malaria carrying mosquitoes, deadly insects like tapeworms and countless other large and small life-threatening creatures
  • Satan and its progeny

 The things that are not harmful in nature, but can be infiltrated or impacted by evil and then as a result of it, become harmful to humans such as:

  • Water is useful for human life, but sometimes it manifests in the form of floods, heavy rains that kill people and destroys infrastructure 
  • Electricity isn't harmful in nature as humans benefit from it. However, electric current can be dangerous and it can kill humans
  • People aren't evil inherently but when gripped by evil they may become dangerous and pose threats to other humans's life, health, business and happiness.
  • Technology is useful, but can result in road accidents, plane crashes, creation of new diseases and complexities

3) Safety from all kinds of hidden dangers

There are countless hidden dangers lurking as human mind cannot detect their seriousness and the level of risk they pose to human safety. 

Wa min sharri ghasiqin idha waqab
"And from the evil of darkness when it settles." Al Falaq verse 3 
The darkness means the night when it overtakes daylight that makes us unable to clearly see things. If a threat is unseen and lurks in places we are unaware of, we need a higher power and intelligence that can protect us.

The benefits this verse can bring are countless as we go through life experiencing moments where we are exposed to such dangers. Here are some of the most common threats a person can face:
  • Criminals involved in stealing, scam and fraud
  • Friends who may appear friendly and well-wishers but they could be against your well-being and happiness
  • Hypocrites who may show empathy on the surface, but due to jealousy and competition can pose a threat to your safety. 
  • It can be hidden enemies and unlawful lust that may attack through any medium

4) Removal of black magic

Black magic has long been a tool for evil-minded people and they use it to harm their victim's life. The two Surahs were specifically revealed to deal with issues that include magic or secret arts that involve conscious use of evil intention -- usually in the form of spells against other unsuspecting humans. 

The 4th verse of Surah Falaq focuses on how we should seek protection with Allah from those who practice magic or people who go to professional magicians. 


"Wa min sharrin naffasaati fil uqad 

"From the mischief (evil) of those who practice secret arts," Surah Falaq verse 4

5) Protection from evil jinns and evil eye

Make these Two Surahs part of your daily routine. Understand the meaning, and appreciate how Allah had mercy upon us by sending these two powerful weapons against evil eye and jinns. 


Abu Said Al Khudri (RA) reported: "The Messenger of Allah SAW used to seek protection against the evil of jinn and the evil eyes till Surah Al Falaq and Surah An Nas were revealed. After they were revealed, he took to them for seeking Allah's protection and left everything besides them." [Riyad as Saliheen 1015]

Evil of the unseen world is more dangerous than many Muslims think. Allah has warned us through Prophet Mohammad SAW by sending these Surahs, but sadly many of us don't understand the involvement of evil jinns and evil eye in the destruction of human life. These two threats (evil jinns and evil eye) first impact a person's mind and their spiritual health, which ultimately manifests in the physical world in the form of unwanted events such as loss of health, business losses, relationship (marriage, family) issues and countless other problems. 

Learn Surah Falaq and Naas by understanding their meaning and use them to your advantage.  

6) Protection from jealous persons 

Jealousy is something everyone should stay away from as it not only hurts the person who becomes jealous but also the victim. Allah has specifically mentioned this threat in the last verse of Surah Falaq, empowering us to create a safe environment where we are not hurt by jealous souls. 


Wa min sharri haasidin iza hasad
(I seek refuge) from the evil of an enveir when he envies [Surah Falaq verse 5]

7) Powerful control over waswaas (evil suggestions)

Waswas are a trick of Satan. Technically, waswasa is any negative or evil information in the form of thoughts, ideas and feelings that penetrate a person's heart and mind from Satan and outside sources (jinns and humans). 

These negative thoughts and ideas, if not replaced with good positive thoughts suggested by Allah and His prophet SAW, turn into delusion and force a person to do things that eventually create unwanted circumstances for them. 

Min sharril waswaasil khannas
Allazi yuwas wisu fi sudurin naas
From the evil of sneaking whisperer who whispers into the hearts of mankind [An Naas verses 4-5]
If you are not alert and conscious, your mind can catch negative, evil, unproductive and anti-life thoughts from Satan. If we are not protected through the remembrance of Allah, these negative waswaas can become our long-term permanent memory and we see a negative shift in our habits, routines and outcomes. 

By constantly practicing Surah Naas, one can restrict Satan's ability to corrupt the mind.
