The Virtues of Surahs Al-Falaq and An-Nas
In his Sahih, Muslim recorded on the authority of `Uqbah bin `Amir that the Messenger of Allah said,
«أَلَمْ تَرَ آيَاتٍ أُنْزِلَتْ هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةَ لَمْ يُرَ مِثْلُهُنَّ قَطُّ:
(Do you not see that there have been Ayat revealed to me tonight the like of which has not been seen before) They are
﴿قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ ﴾»
(Say: "I seek refuge with, the Lord of Al-Falaq.'')(113:1) and;
﴿قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ ﴾
(Say: "I seek refuge with the Lord of mankind.'') (114:1)) This Hadith was recorded by Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa'i. At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Sahih.''
