Simple Explanation of Surah An Nas

This surah refers to seeking refuge with the Lord and God of humankind from the Shaytan who is the source and cause of all evil.

In his efforts to tempt people and do evil, he whispers into their hearts, making evil fair-seeming to them and showing it to them in a good image, motivating them to do it.

And he makes goodness ill-seeming to them, tries to put them off it, and presents a false image of it to them.


This is how he always is, whispering and withdrawing; he retreats when a person remembers his Lord and seeks His help to ward him off.

So the individual should seek help, seek refuge and seek protection in the Lordship of Allah over all people, for He is the Lord of all people and all people come under His Lordship and Sovereignty, and He holds the forelock of every living being.

And he should seek help, seek refuge and seek protection in the divinity of Allah, by worshipping Him, which is the purpose for which He has created them.

And this purpose cannot be fulfilled except by warding off the evil of their enemy, who wants to cut them off and prevent them from worshipping Allah.

And wants to make them among his party so that they will become inhabitants of the blazing fire.


Waswas (devilish whispers) may be caused by the jinn or by humans, hence Allah says: from among the jinn and humankind.

Surah Nas Pronunciation

Qul Auzu Bi Rabbin Nas Tafseer

The meaning of the first verse is,

He is Allah, the Lord of mankind and every other creation.


He is the Lord of people, the angels, the Jinn, the heavens and earth, the sun and moon, the Lord of everything.

But for a certain appropriate reason, He has specified mankind in this verse.

The Tafsir Verse two

The king of mankind means The one who possesses the highest authority among mankind and complete control of their affairs is Allah.

The Tafseer of Verse three

The God of mankind means He is their God and the only One deserving of all of their worship.

The true God to Whom the hearts turn to out of love and honor is Allah.

The Tafsir Of verse four

The whisperings are the ideas, superstitions, and confusions that are thrown into the heart yet having no truth to them.

The one who withdraws and retreats when Allah is mentioned favorably which is Shaytaan.

For this reason, whenever the call to prayer is made, Shaytaan turns back, retreating and breaking wind so that he does not hear the call.

Then when it is finished, he returns until the prayer is actually begun and established; he then retreats again.

Then, he returns during the prayer to confute the one praying, saying, “Remember this and that.”

He continues until the person does not even know what he has prayed.

Thus, it has come in a narration: “If you become overcome by alGeelaan, then begin saying the Adhaan (call to prayer).”

Al Geelaan refers to the Shaytaans that confuse and play tricks on the minds of travelers or can be more broadly applied to any evil such as an enemy or similar things.

So when a person remembers Allah, these devils leave.

The Tafsir Of The last verse

From the jinns and mankind, this means These whispering occur from the evils ones among the jinns as well as from the children of Adam.

As for the evil suggestions of the Jinn, this is known as the Shaytaans run through mankind as the blood does.

As for the evils ones from mankind; it is very common that people come to others suggesting evil, beautifying it to their hearts until they accept it and act upon it.
