Surah Al-Nas (Mankind) is the 114th and last surah(chapter) of the Quran (The Muslim holy book). It is a short six-verse invocation, asking Allah for protection from the Shaitan.
Hazrat Aisha J reported that: “Before sleeping Prophet Muhammad H would recite the last three Surahs of Quran (Surah AL- Ikhlas (112), Surah AL-Falkaq (113) and Surah Al-Nas (114)) and then would blow it onto His hands and then wipe the hands all over His body.” (Bukhari)
Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq I has said that whoever recites this Surah in his house every night, will be kept safe from Jinnaat and the evil designs of Shaitan.
