Quran Surah 113: Surah al-Falaq (The Dawn)

This is a 'madani' surah and it has 5 ayaat. It is narrated from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) that whoever recites this surah in the month of Ramadhan in any of his prayers, it is as if he has fasted in Makkah and he will get the reward for performing Hajj and 'Umra.

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) said that in the prayer of Shafa'a (in Salaatul-layl) one should recite surah al-Falaq in the first rak'aat and an-Naas in the second.

This surah is part of four protective surahs which are used in talismans to protect the home from evil. Those surah are an-Naas, al-Falaq, al-Ikhlas, and al-Kaafirun. This surah is also used to protect against evil and the works of the devil.

Along with an-Naas, Al Falaq is used to deal with witchcraft.
