Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

114. Sūrat al-Nās 1

In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

1 Say, ‘I seek the protection of the Lord of humans,
2 Sovereign of humans,
3 God of humans,
4 from the evil of the sneaky tempter
5 who puts temptations into the breasts of humans,
6 from among the jinn and humans.’

1 The sūrah takes its name from the word ‘mankind’ (al-nās) which recurs throughout the sūrah.
