Quran Quote  : 

قُلۡ اَعُوۡذُ بِرَبِّ الۡفَلَقِۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

1.Please declare: "I take refuge with the Lord of the Daybreak (2).”

Reason for its Revelation:

During the 7th Hijri, just after the Treaty of Hudaibiyya, the Jewish chiefs said to their fellow Jew, Lubaid bin Asim, that their daughters are incomparable in witchcraft. We want you to cast a magical spell on the Holy Prophet . صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم through Lubaid the help of a Jewish servant, managed to obtain the teeth of a worn-out comb and a few blessed hair of the Holy Prophet. made an effigy from a candle and pierced eleven needles in it. In one chord, he tied eleven knots. Placing all this in the effigy, he pressed it firmly under a stone in the water of the well of Rawaan. The effect of this: thinking of the Holy Prophet, was that he had erred in some worldly matters. This effect remained for a period of six months. Thereafter, Hazrat Jibraeel Ameen came down with these two Surahs, Al-Falaq and An-Naas, in which there are eleven verses about this witchcraft and gave it to the Holy Prophet.

Hazrat Alli was sent to take out all these things, used for the witchcraft. from the bottom of the well. The Holy Prophet recited these verses. At each verse, one knot became loose and in this way all the knots became loose and the Messenger of Allah, recovered from its effects.

From it, emerge few points :

1. Witchcraft and its evil effects are true.

2. Witchcraft can affect the body of a Prophet, just like the effect of sword, arrow and spear on the Prophet is not against Prophethood. The magicians failed against Hazrat Musa (On whom be peace) because their magic was in opposition to Prophetic miracle. In fact, the effect of this witchcraft was felt on the thinking of Hazrat Musa, who began to imagine that these sticks and ropes were moving. Says Allah Almighty: "They looked to him as though they were running by the strength of their magic" (S20:V66). The similar effect took place on the thinking of the Holy . صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم Prophet

4. Allah Almighty protects the intellect of the Prophet from the evil effects of witchcraft, so that it does not become an obstacle to the propagation of Religion.

5. One should not throw ones hair and broken combs outside. Throw them in a safe place as many spells of witchcraft can be affected through them.

6. It is permissible to learn the duas to remove the effect of witchcraft, to wear Ta'weez and

7. It means that just as Allah Almighty removes the night through the morning, likewise, He grants cure to illnesses through prayers. It tells us that one offering dua should remember Him with His Attributes, in accordance with his needs.

3. "And from the evil of the darkness when it sets in (4)."

It means that when the moon becomes black during the lunar eclipse, or it remains out of view at the end of the month, because these times are put into much use for witchcraft. From this we understand that some of the times are inauspicious and ominous. Seek the refuge of Allah Almighty from these. Says Allah Almighty: "In the day there is ill-fortune" (S54:V19).

4. "And from the evil of those women who blow on the knots (5)."

5. It means the daughters of Lubaid who were practising witchcraft had blown on the blessed hair of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم through a chord string and made eleven knots. From this we learn that if there is an effect in the blowing of the magician, then surely how much effect will there not be in the verses of the Holy Quran , Allah and His Blessed Names if they are recited and blown on a person? Thus, to recite the verses of the Holy QUR'AAN on the ill persons and blow on them and make them into charms, etc. and knotting them is permissible. The Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم would blow on sick persons.

Envy is totally evil, while Ghabata is permissible in matters of religion. Envy is that first sin which took place in heaven by Shaitaan and by Qabeel on earth. Everyone is fully aware of their consequences. From this we learn that witchcraft and envy are two of the worst sins, because after mentioning the common sins, these two have been mentioned specifically
