قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النّاس (1) مَلكِ النّاس (2) إِلاهِ النَّاس (3) من شرِّ الوَسواسِ الخنَّاس (4) الَّذي يُوَسوِسُ في صُدُورِ النّاس (5) من الجنِّ و النّاس (6) سورة الناس
“Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of humanity – The King of humanity – The Deity of humanity” This is protecting oneself by way of Allah, by mentioning His qualities of lordship, divinity, and sovereignty. These three designations, Lord, King, and Deity of humanity, their meanings are present in Al-Fatiha, wherein they are reported within the contents of praise of Allah. However in the closing chapter of the book (Al Quran) they are reported by seeking refuge with and adherence to Him.
“From the evil of the whisperer who departs” He is the Shaitan. He has been mentioned with these two descriptions:
- Whisperer: He who whispers in the hearts.
- The one who departs: He who withdraws, and becomes distant from a person when Allah is mentioned.
Within this is the urging to preserve Allah’s remembrance, as that is the greatest protection for the servant against the Shaitan.
“Who whispers in the hearts of men” He who flings whispers and evil into the chest of man, from ill ideas, corrupt creed, and repugnant meanings.
“From jinn and men” Just as whispers could be from the jinn, they can also be from men.
