We read the Quran for guidance and help; it has a cure for everything. So, let’s see what are the most powerful surah in Quran for protection.
Importance of reading Surah Al-Falaq for protection.
Surah Falaq was revealed to the prophet when he was ill due to black magic. Therefore, Allah revealed the surah to cure him.
Surah Falaq is one of the shortest surahs in the Quran. However, it is one of the most powerful surahs for protection against evil, black magic, and envy.
The name of the surah came from its first verse. The meaning of the word Falaq is “daybreak”. It is also referred to as Mu‘awwadhah (seeking refuge). It is the surah number 113 in the holy Quran, that was revealed to the prophet in Madinah.
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيم
In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, most merciful
قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ ﴿1﴾
Say, ‘I seek the protection of the Lord of the daybreak
مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ ﴿2﴾
from the evil of what He has created,
وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ ﴿3﴾
and from the evil of the dark night when it falls,
وَمِن شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي الْعُقَدِ ﴿4﴾
and from the evil of the witches, who blow on knots,
وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ ﴿5﴾
and from the evil of the envious one when he envies.
” (Surah Al-Falaq)
Uqbah bin Amir Al-Juhani رضnarrated that the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) 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 Surat.
“Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of Al-Falaq…” until the end of the Surah.”
In the surah, Allah orders the prophet to seek refuge in him from any evil thing. To seek refuge from the evil eye, from creatures, and from witches who curse people by blowing on knots.
Some people don’t believe in black magic and witchcraft. But from this surah, we know they are real. And to seek refuge you should read surah Falaq for protection.

مَلِكِ ٱلنَّاسِ ٢
the Master of humankind,
إِلَـٰهِ ٱلنَّاسِ ٣
the God of humankind,
مِن شَرِّ ٱلْوَسْوَاسِ ٱلْخَنَّاسِ ٤
From the evil of the lurking whisperer,
ٱلَّذِى يُوَسْوِسُ فِى صُدُورِ ٱلنَّاسِ ٥
Who whispers into the hearts of humankind,
