The Meaning of Surah Al-Falaq ~ Hi all readers! I think we all know what Surah al-Falaq is. I guess you have memorized the content in the surah. In the surah, there are five verses of the Quran, twenty-three words, and seventy-four letters. Allah revealed the surah after the Prophet Muhammad migrated to Medina. As Muslims, we must know the meaning of the surah. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you have to read it to the end!
Before I explain the meaning of surah al-Falaq, I want to say that this surah is closely related to surah an-Nas. I have also explained the interpretation of surah an-Nas in the previous article. By the way, do you know why Allah sent Surah al-Falaq and Surah an-Nas to the Prophet Muhammad? The answer is because at that time he was exposed to magic. The one who bewitched him was Labid bin A’sham. Allah then told him about where he was. After that, he told someone to go to that place. There was found a magic that uses eleven ropes. That’s why he feels sick. But after the cords were released, he felt no pain anymore.
All Readers! The surah al-Falaq I mean is as follows;
قُلۡ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ ٱلۡفَلَقِ ١ مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ ٢ وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ ٣ وَمِن شَرِّ ٱلنَّفَّٰثَٰتِ فِي ٱلۡعُقَدِ ٤ وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ ٥
Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak  From the evil of that which He created  And from the evil of darkness when it settles  from the evil of an envier when he envies . ” (Al-Falaq ; 1-5).
The Meaning of Surah Al-Falaq
(قُلۡ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ ٱلۡفَلَقِ) The point is, “Say, O Muhammad, I ask for protection from God who rules the morning.” The word “al-Falaq” in the verse is morning time. That time is the time that is usually used by people who are experiencing difficulties to pray. It was also a time when the prayers of those who were sad were answered.
(مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ) The point is to ask for protection from the evil of what He has created. ” Of course we all already know, that not all things that exist in this world are good. Some are bad and some are good. Something bad is what can give bad to others. That’s why we are encouraged to ask for protection from God from something that can bring bad.
(وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ) The purpose is to ask for protection from the bad moon when it appears.
(وَمِن شَرِّ ٱلنَّفَّٰثَٰتِ فِي ٱلۡعُقَدِ) The purpose is to ask for protection from the crime of female magicians. Maybe you have heard, that the most capable magician is a female magician. Her magic power exceeds the power of male magicians.
(وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ) The purpose is to ask for protection from the evil of the person who is incited when he has instigated it. I, we all know the danger of sedition. It hurts a lot, right ?!
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of the meaning of surah al-Falaq. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!
I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
