The Meaning of al-Falaq


The Meaning of al-Falaq

 

And from his narration on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that he said regarding the interpretation of Allah’s saying (Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of Daybreak): ‘(Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of Daybreak) He says: Say, O Muhammad, I seek protection, and it is said: I seek refuge, in the Lord of daybreak; and it is also said that al-falaq refers to a well in the Fire; and it is also said that al-falaq is a valley in the Fire.
 
{ مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ }

(From the evil of that which He created) from the evil of any from among His creation that possesses evil;
 
{ وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ }

(From the evil of the darkness when it is intense,
 
{ وَمِن شَرِّ ٱلنَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي ٱلْعُقَدِ }

And from the evil of malignant witchcraft,
 
{ وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ }

And from the evil of the envier when he envieth) this refers to Labid Ibn al-A’sam, the Jew, who was envious of the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and used black magic to separate him from ‘A’ishah’.
