The story behind the revelation of surah Al-Falaq and Al-Nas ﺍﻟﻤﻌﻮﺫﺗﻴﻦ
The following last two Surahs of the Holy Quran were revealed
together. These Surahs were revealed to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) during a time when His health was slightly affected by witchcraft or black magic.
There was a Jewish servant boy called Labid who got hold of the Prophet's (S.A.W) blessed hair and put a spell on it. The Prophet (S.A.W) became very sick. After a few days Jibraeel (A.S) came to our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) and told him that a Jew had made Jaa'doo (cast a spell) on him and had buried the Jaa'doo items under a stone in a certain well.
Our Nabi (S.A.W) sent Ali to remove the Jaa'doo items. Ali (R.A) went immediately to that well and emptied the water from it. He found the stone and lifted it. Underneath the stone was a bag made of date palm fibres and in it was the blessed hair of our Nabi (S.A.W). He also found a few teeth of the blessed comb of Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) and a line or a string of a bow on which was tied eleven knots. There was also a puppet made of wax in which there were 11 needles. The Jaa'doo items were brought to our Nabi (S.A.W).
Almighty Allah (S.W.T) then revealed these two Surahs together to our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W). Surah Falaq had five Ayahs and Surah Naas had six Ayahs, altogether counting eleven. When our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) read all the eleven Ayahs, all the knots were opened one by one. The Prophet (S.A.W) was cured.
The Prophet (S.A.W) urged Muslims to recite these two Surahs as often as possible. It will protect us from the evil works of Devils, Jinn or Magic. It will protect us from hatred and jealousy.
