Dear Sister,

Brief and right on the dot! MashaAllah.

Badar is running after mirage. I know Arabic.

See the correct translation of Surah 113 in QXP.

Surah 113. Al-Falaq – The Rising Dawn

The last two Surahs of the Qur’an have unfortunately been given the name of Mu’awwazatain by the so-called “authorities”, conveying to the reader that they are supposed to guard against “occult powers” such as magic, evil-eye, witchcraft, demons, jealousy, the ‘unseen beings’ omens and amulets etc.

The most pragmatic Book on earth, the Qur’an, strongly negates the real existence of witchcraft, black magic, soothsaying, astrology, palm-reading, psychic prowess of telling the future, crystal balls, fortune-telling, clairvoyance, and all superstition - reiterating again and again that the entire Universe is being run by Divine laws. We may call these as God’s physical laws in the Universe, and according to the Book of God these laws never change.

The exalted Messenger is also reported to have said that there is no such thing as Ghoul (Occult creatures like demons, evil spirits and witches etc). He is also reported to have said that Nasharah (the pretense of expelling demons from the human body) is a deceptive, Satanic act.

Where is Satan? The exalted prophet once said that everyone has a Satan/Iblis within. Sahaba Kiraam respectfully asked, “Even you O Rasullullah?” He said, “Yes, I have made him a Muslim.” So, Satan is not an extrinsic entity.

It is, then, amazing that Muslim scholars as well as the masses who revere Hadith, conveniently ignore such reported sayings of the exalted Messenger when they conflict with their false beliefs, and embrace those reports that clearly contradict the Qur’an, but support their erroneous whims!

Let us not reduce the Glorious revelations of God to the irrational propositions of people, however big their names may be.

With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness

113:1 Say, "I seek refuge with the Lord of the Rising Dawn, the enlightenment.
113:2 From the evil aspects of created things.
113:3 And from the evils of the darkness of Ignorance whenever and wherever it is encountered.
113:4 And from the covert activities of people who try to put knots and complicate the simple.
113:5 And from the evil of the envious when he envies (and tries to harm)."
