Text, Transliteration, Translation, and Explanation

قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ
1. Qul huwallahu ahad
Say, “He is Allah, (who is) One.
Say, O Prophet, He is Allah, the only Lord, the only one Who deserves worship, and the only One who possesses Names and Attributes of beauty and perfection.  No one shares with Him in these matters.
اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ
2. Allahus samad
Allah, the Eternal Refuge.
Allah alone is sought in times of need.  Allah alone is the desire of the hearts.  On Him all creation depends.  This dependence is not reciprocal, however; He does not depend on His creatures.
لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ
3. Lam yalid walam yoolad
He neither begets nor is born,
He has no son or daughter, father or mother, or companion.
وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ
4. Walam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”
Nothing in creation resembles Allah in any of His names, attributes, or actions.

Surah Al-Falaq

Surah al-Falaq is the second last chapter of the Quran.  Both this surah and Surah an-Naas are man’s best protection against evil.  It is also good to frequently recite them insalah.  It is also recommended to say them after each obligatory prayer and before going to sleep at night.
