Quran Quote  :  The angel said: "Thus shall it be. Your Lord says: 'It is easy for Me; and We shall do so in order to make him a Sign for mankind and a mercy from Us. This has been decreed.' " - 19:21

قُلۡ اَعُوۡذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

1. Please declare (1) "I (Muhammad) seek refuge with the Lord (2) of mankind."

1. O My Beloved! Say it with your blessed tongue so that with the effect of the prayer, the favourable effect of your blessed tongue, too, can be brought together and through your permission the other believers can say it. Without the rifle, the bullet cannot fire. Without the purity of the tongue, the dua can have no favourable effect. For your dua to produce a favourable effect first purify yourself. Or, let the pure and pious pray for you, or, take permission from them.

2. Allah Almighty is the Lord of the entire creation, but since the human being is the superior creation, mention has been made of him specifically. It should be remembered that the Lord is He who is Self-existent and is Present everywhere, at all times, unselfishly. His protection is provided in the world of souls, in the world, in the grave and in the Hereafter. In short, everywhere. The Arabic word "Abb"(father) is that being who provides sustenance and protection for a short time, out of selfish motives. Thus, Allah Almighty is the Lord and not the father. Because a human being, in his childhood, obtains protection only. Therefore, this characteristic or attribute is mentioned first.

مِنۡ شَرِّ الۡوَسۡوَاسِ ۙ الۡخَـنَّاسِ ۙ‏ ﴿۴﴾

4. From the evil of him who whispers evil designs in the hearts (5) and slinks away (6).

5. It means Shaitaan, who places evil thoughts in the hearts of man. Evil thoughts are called "Waswasa" (evil suggestion), while good thoughts are called "Ilhaam"(inspiration). Evil inspiration.suggestion is from Shaitaan, at the time of which one should recite "La Haul"; while Ilhaam or inspiration comes from Allah Almighty through the angels, for which one should express gratitude to your Creator. When the baser self, Nafs e Ammarah, gets the better of the person he will be plagued by many evil.

6. It means he does not mislead you through word and sound, but straight away exercises influence on your heart. He makes evil appear as good. He is your enemy, but comes in the garb of a friend. May Allah Almighty protect us from him. Then he makes evil suggestions in accordance with the quality of the person.

الَّذِىۡ يُوَسۡوِسُ فِىۡ صُدُوۡرِ النَّاسِۙ‏ ﴿۵﴾

5. Those who whisper in the hearts of mankind (7).

7. In that at the time of callousness and negligence, Shaitaan places many evil suggestions in the heart of people, while during the time of remembrance of Allah Almighty, Shaitaan is overpowered. However, even in this state, he does his work. He places such evil intentions in the heart when one is in the state of salaah.

It should be remembered that Shaitaan is that enemy of ours who remains concealed from us, i.e. he can see us, but we cannot see him. Thus, seek protection and refuge from the All-Powerful Lord Who sees him and he cannot see Him. Seek protection from the intentions in the heart when the person is in a powerful enemy from the Powerful Lord.

 مِنَ الۡجِنَّةِ وَالنَّاسِ‏ ﴿۶﴾

6. From among jinn and mankind (8).

8. This is the description of Shaitaan placing evil suggestions in the heart of man- that he is from the jinns as well as from man. Many, totally misguided, people will come to you in the guise of well-wishers. If you listen to just one word of theirs, they will try to influence you in the future. But, if you keep them far away from the beginning, they will remain aloof from you. Do not be heedless of them. There are many dacoits of the treasures of faith. When going to bed, the Holy Prophet would recite both these Surahs then blow it on his blessed hands and rub his hands over his entire body. Every Muslim should act upon this practice.
