Your Fortress Against Harm: Ayatul Kursi and 3 Quls

When it comes to protecting ourselves from harm, the best thing we can do is put our trust in Allah and ask Him for help.

That’s why making dua (supplication) for protection is so important. The most powerful duas for protection are verses many of us already know and say daily.

These verses are Ayatul Kursi (the Verse of the Throne) and the three Quls: Surah Naas, Surah Falaq, and Surah Ikhlaas.

Dua For Protection Ayat Ul Kursi

The most powerful of these protective duas is Ayatul Kursi, found in Surah Baqarah (verse 255).

Ayatul Kursi, which means “the Verse of the Throne,” paints a breathtaking picture of Allah’s majesty, power, and knowledge.

It’s a verse that reminds us that nothing can compare to Him.

Allah’s Messenger (SAW): “Whoever recites Ayat al-Kursi at the end of every obligatory prayer, nothing but death will prevent him from entering Paradise.” [An-Nasa’i reported it, and Ibn Hibban graded it Sahih (authentic).

Reference: The Book of Prayer: Book 2, Hadith 220
Abu Huraira said, “Allah’s Messenger (SAW) put me in charge of the Zakat of Ramadan (i.e. Zakat-ul-Fitr). Someone came to me and started scooping some of the foodstuff of (Zakat) with both hands. I caught him and told him that I would take him to Allah’s Messenger (SAW).” Then Abu Huraira told the whole narration and added “He (i.e. the thief) said, ‘Whenever you go to your bed, recite the Verse of “Al-Kursi” (2.255) for then a guardian from Allah will be guarding you, and Satan will not approach you till dawn.’ ” On that the Prophet (SAW) said, “He told you the truth, though he is a liar, and he (the thief) himself was the Satan.”

Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari 3275
Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: O Abu’ al-Mundhir, do you know the verse from the Book of Allah which, according to you, is the greatest? I said: Allah and His Apostle (SAW) know best. He again said: Abu’l-Mundhir, do you know the verse from the Book of Allah which, according to you, is the greatest? I said: Allah, there is no god but He, the Living, the Eternal. Thereupon he struck me on my breast and said: May knowledge be pleasant for you, O Abu’l-Mundhir!

Reference: Sahih Muslim 810
that the Messenger of Allah (SAW): “For everything there is a hump (pinnacle) and the hump (pinnacle) of the Qur’an is Surat Al-Baqarah, in it there is an Ayah which is the master of the Ayat in the Qur’an; [it is] Ayat Al-Kursi.”

Grade: Da’if (Darussalam)
Reference: Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2878
Allah has not created in the heavens nor in the earth what is more magnificent than Ayat Al-Kursi.” Sufyan said: “Because Ayat Al-Kursi is the Speech of Allah, and Allah’s Speech is greater than Allah’s creation of the heavens and the earth.”

Grade: Da’if (Darussalam)
Reference: Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2884

Dua For Protection Surah Al Ikhlas ( 3 Qul)
Dua For Protection Surah Al Falaq ( 3 Qul)

Allah, in His wisdom, shows us in the Quran how to ask for protection from enemies, evil, and anything that could harm us.

We turn to Him because there’s simply no one better to protect us, and His words hold the most reliable promise of safety.

Besides Ayatul Kursi, there are three short surahs (chapters) called Naas, Falaq, and Ikhlaas. When recited together, they become a powerful shield of protection.

In fact, there are many sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) highlighting how important these three surahs are for our protection.

The Messenger of Allah (SAW), peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Speak.” I said, “What should I say?” The Prophet said, “Say: He is Allah, the One, (112:1) and the two chapters of refuge, al-Falaq and al-Nas, every evening and morning three times. They will be enough for you against everything.”

Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Nawawi
Reference: Sunan al-Tirmidhī 3575
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to seek protection against the evil of jinn and the evil eyes till Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas were revealed. After they were revealed, he took to them for seeking Allah’s protection and left everything besides them.

[At- Tirmidhi]
Reference: Riyad as-Salihin 1015
Whenever the Prophet (SAW) went to bed every night, he used to cup his hands together and blow over it after reciting Surat Al-Ikhlas, Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas, and then rub his hands over whatever parts of his body he was able to rub, starting with his head, face and front of his body. He used to do that three times.

Reference: : Sahih al-Bukhari 5017
Imam Ibn Qayyim spoke about the power of Surah Naas and Surah Falaq as follows: “The effectiveness of these surahs is great to repel magic, evil eye, and the rest of the evils and the need for a slave to seek Allah’s protection from these two surahs is greater than his need for self, eating, drinking, and wearing dress” (Al-Fawaid, 2/426).

Reciting Ayatul Kursi and the three Quls (Surah An Nas, Surah Al Falaq, Surah Ikhlas) together form a powerful shield of divine protection.

  • Protection from Allah’s power against all types of harm. 
  • Increased blessings (barakah) from Allah. 
  • They enhance spiritual connection with Allah.

There are numerous occasions and times when reciting Ayatul Kursi and the 3 Qul together is recommended:

  • Morning and Evening
  • Before Sleep
  • After Salah (Prayer)
Courtesy By: Just a layman Sh. Assim Al Hakeem
  • When Feeling Fearful or Anxious
  • When Traveling
  • When Facing Difficulty or Trials
  • When Entering a New Home
  • Before Making an Important Decision

Remember, the most critical aspect is reciting them sincerely and understanding, seeking Allah’s protection and guidance.
