I have heard Surat Al Falaq and Nas are the best protectors against enemies and evil eye? I heard our Beloved PROPHET (pbuh) used to read these surahs more than anything else.
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
Yes, you are correct. Surat al Falaq and Surat al Nas have many virtues. Protection and safety from evils is certainly one of the benefits.
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) used to seek refuge with Allah from the jinn and from the evil eye until the Mu’wadhatayn (Surat al Falaq and Surat al Nas) were revealed, and when they were revealed he started to recite them and not anything else [for protection]” (Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah).
And Allah knows best.
