5 The Break of DawnSay: "I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak,"From the evil of what He has created;"And from the evil of the darkening (night) as it comes with its darkness; (or the moon as it sets or goes away)."And from the evil of the witchcrafts when they blow in the knots,"And from the evil of the envier when he envies."
8 Mankind Say: "I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of mankind, "The King of mankind"The Ilah (God) of mankind"From the evil of the whisperer (devil who whispers evil in the hearts of men) who withdraws (from his whispering in one's heart after one remembers Allah) ,"Who whispers in the breasts of mankind,"Of jinns and men."
9 Virtues of MawazatainAyesha (R.A.) reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) used to recite these surahs three times each before going to sleep, and then he would blow into his palms and rub them all over his body. Bukhari and MuslimIn another report the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) said, "Recite them there is no Surahs like them." An-NisaiAishah(R.A.) narrates that: During the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasalam)'s fatal illness, he used to recite the Mu'auwidhaat and then blow his breath over his body. When his illness was aggravated, I used to recite those two Surahs , blow my breath over him and make him rub his body with his own hand for its blessings."Bukhari (Ma'mar asked Az-Zuhri: How did the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasalam) used to blow? Az-Zuhri said: He used to blow on his hands and then passed them over his face.)
