Divine Protection from all Calamities and Hardships


Hazrath Abdullah ibn Khubaib (radhiallahu anhu) narrates: “One dark and rainy night we set out to seek our exalted and eternally blessed Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and finally we found him. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) asked me to recite. I said: “What shall I recite?” He said: “Make it a constant practice to recite Surah Iklaas, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas (the last three surahs of the Qur’an) thrice daily in the morning and evening and it shall suffice you from all else.”

Commenting on the above Mullah Ali Qari (R.A.) quotes the following statement of Allama Taibi. He writes: “The words in the text of the said Hadith mean that these surahs serve as protection from every mishap. Or it means that one who recites them, if for any reason he is not able to recite anything else, it will suffice for him. He shall remain protected from all possible evils”(Mirqaat, pg.370; vol.4).

People are generally greatly agitated while many also suffer from various superstitions. Some believe they are under the spell of demons while others feel that their businesses are not flourishing because of some magic spell cast over them, etc. At times the hardship is a reality and often it is only imaginary. Nevertheless, people are daily faced with problems and difficulties.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has suggested a perfect remedy for all our worries. If we make it our routine to recite the above surahs (which won’t take us more than two or three minutes) we are sure to be immune from all evils. However the benefit of this “medication” to relieve our worries and stress will only be realized when we also stick to the correct “diet” of refraining from sins and disobedience. ( Adapted from the writings of Hazrath Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb [M.Z.]).
