Why was surah Nas revealed?
There is a hadith talking about the reason why this surah was revealed, it was revealed to the prophet because the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) was suffering from the effect of a magic spell, the one who put that spell on the prophet is called Labeeb ibn Asam.

A few days later the angel Jabril came and revealed both surah Nas and Surah al Falaq to the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him).

Jabreel said that “It was the effects of the magic spell by a Jew, and you are feeling bad due to that magic certainly.”

After the prophet recited those two Surahs he started to feel better and the magic was removed.

We learn from Suratul Nas to seek Allah’s refuge from the mischief of the whisperers. We can be devoted to the false whisper of a person and the secret whisper of evil in our hearts. Allah, the supporter, king, and God of all mankind, has complete control and authority over his creatures and is able to completely protect us from the evil temptations that arise in our hearts. increase. Against repeated devil attempts.

So, we should do as Allah said in the Holy Quran: “and on God let the believers put their trust” (9: 51).
What does Surah Nas mean?
The last surah in the Holy Quran is Surah Naas, it is number 114 in the Holy Quran, and it only has 6 verses. So it’s considered one of the short surahs. We will discuss the meaning of the ‘al Naas su

rah’ shortly, but first, you should know that the word ‘Nas’ means “The Men.”

It is in the Juz number 30 and its order in revelation is 21, and it was revealed in Mecca.

مَلِكِ ٱلنَّاسِ ٢
the Master of humankind,
إِلَـٰهِ ٱلنَّاسِ ٣
the God of humankind,
مِن شَرِّ ٱلْوَسْوَاسِ ٱلْخَنَّاسِ ٤

مِنَ ٱلْجِنَّةِ وَٱلنَّاسِ ٦

Verse 1:
In this verse, Allah shows us that he is the Lord of humankind and that we need his protection and refuge against all the evil and hardships that we go through.
Verses 2 and 3
This verse shows that Allah is the king of the world and that No one is mightier and bigger than Allah.
Verses 4 and 5

Surah al Nas was revealed in Mecca, so it is called a “Mecci Surah.”
What does surah Naas protect you from?
Surah Falaq and Surah Al Naas are known as the Al-Mu’awwidhatain or ‘the verses of refuge’. They protect us against evil things when reciting them.

Surah Falaq protects us against:

  •   Evil creatures (people, animals, jinn, etc.)
  •   Any sort of magic
  •   Enviers

While naas surah protects us from humans and jinn, it protects us from going on the wrong path that humans and jinn are leading us to.

You should read surah Ikhlas and Ma’awwidhatain after the daily prayer, before sleeping, and when waking up so that Allah protects you from any harm. The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said:

‘Abdullah bin Khubaib reported: The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said to me, “Recite Surat Al-Ikhlas and Al- Mu’awwidhatain (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) three times at dawn and dusk. It will suffice you in all respects.”

(Riyad as-Salihin 1456)

There are many hadiths about the importance of reading this Surah, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t read any of the Quran but this Surah. You should read all the Surahs but this surah was revealed on a unique occasion. Here are some of the hadiths about it:

Abdullah container Khubaib narrated that the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “Recount Surat Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu’awwidhatain (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) multiple times at first light and sunset. It will do the trick you in all regards.” (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi Vol. 5, Book 42, Hadith 2902).

Hazrat Aisha described: Whenever the Prophet SAW hit the sack each night, he used to cup his hands together and blow over it after recounting Surat Al-Ikhlas, Surat Al-Falaq, and surah nas, and afterward rub his hands over his body, he had the option to sharpen, beginning with his head, face, and front of his body. He used to do that multiple times. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, 5016).

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri reported that the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) used to look for insurance against jinn’s evil and the hostile stares till Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas were uncovered. After they were uncovered, he took to them to look for Allah’s security and left everything other than them.
Is surah naas makki or madani?
It was revealed in Mecca so it is a Makki surah.
