Today we will review about Surah Al Falaq, including Surah Al Falaq transliteration, translation and Surah Al Falaq in Arabic.
Surah al-Falaq consists of 5 verses and is the 113th chapter in the Koran. In Arabic text is الفلق. al-Falaq in English is “dawn” or “day-break”.
What is Surah al-Falaq?
Surah al-Falaq and Surah an-Nas are two suras that are believed to be revealed when the Prophet Muhammad was sick. Surah al Falaq and an-Nas are known as al Mu’awwidhatain, which means protection. These two surahs are recommended to be read a lot because they can be a protector for the shaitan and can be a protector from the evil of magic.
In a hadith, The Prophet (ﷺ) often recites these two suras (al-Mu’awwidhatain) when going to sleep.
Narrated ‘Aisha – Sahih al-Bukhari 5017:
Whenever the Prophet (ﷺ) went to bed every night, he used to cup his hands together and blow over it after reciting Surat Al-Ikhas, Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas, and then rubbing his palms all over his body, starting with his head, face and front of his body. He used to do that three times.

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ ٱلْفَلَقِ
Qul a’oozu bi rabbil-falaq
Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak
مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ
Min sharri maa khalaq
From the evil of that which He created
وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ
Wa min sharri ghaasiqin izaa waqab
And from the evil of darkness when it settles
وَمِن شَرِّ ٱلنَّفَّـٰثَـٰتِ فِى ٱلْعُقَدِ
Wa min sharrin-naffaa-saati fil ‘uqad
And from the evil of the blowers in knots
وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ
Wa min sharri haasidin izaa hasad
And from the evil of an envier when he envies.”
