“…he abandoned all else besides them…”

An-Nasaa’i recorded that Ibn `Abis Al-Juhani said that the Prophet said to him,


«يَا ابْنَ عَابِسٍ أَلَا أَدُلُّكَ أَوْ أَلَا أُخْبِرُكَ بِأَفْضَلِ مَا يَتَعَوَّذُ بِهِ الْمُتَعَوِّذُونَ؟»


(O Ibn `Abis! Shall I guide you to — or inform you — of the best thing that those who seek protection use for protection) He replied, “Of course, O Messenger of Allaah!” The Prophet said,


«﴿قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ ﴾


﴿قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ ﴾


هَاتَانِ السُّورَتَانِ»


(Say: “I seek refuge with the Lord of Al-Falaq.”) ( and (Say: “I seek refuge with the Lord of mankind.”) ( These two Soorahs (are the best protection).)

Imaam Malik recorded from `Aa’ishah that whenever the Messenger of Allaah was suffering from an ailment, he would recite the Mu`awwidhatayn over himself and blow (over himself). Then if his pain became severe, `Aa’ishah said that she would recite the Mu`awwidhatayn over him and take his hand and wipe it over himself seeking the blessing of those Soorahs. Al-Bukhaari, Abu Daawud, An-Nasaa’i and Ibn Maajah all recorded this Hadeeth.


It has been reported from Abu Sa`id that the Messenger of Allaah used to seek protection against the evil eyes of the Jinns and mankind. But when the Mu`awwidhatayn were revealed, he used them (for protection) and abandoned all else besides them. At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasaa’i and Ibn Maajah recorded this. At-Tirmidhi said, “This Hadeeth is Hasan Saheeh.”
