Virtues of Al-Mu’awwidhatain
Uqbah bin ‘Amir (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said : “Do you not know that last night certain Ayat were revealed the like of which there is no precedence. They are: ‘Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Rubb of the daybreak’ (Surah 113), and ‘Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Rubb of mankind’ (Surah 114).”
“Alam tara” means “Have not you seen?” or “Are you not aware?”
“There is no precedence” means that there is no other complete Surah in the Qur’an on this subject, except these two. For this reason these two Surat are called (Al-Mu’awwidhatain) which means two Surat which we use to seek Allah’s protection.
And Allah knows best!
