Hadith on Quran: Seeking refuge with Surat al-Falaq, al-Nas

Abu Sa’id reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, would seek refuge from jinn and the evil eye of man, until the two chapters of refuge were revealed, Surat al-Falaq and al-Nas. After they were revealed, he took both of them and left everything else.

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتَعَوَّذُ مِنْ الْجَانِّ وَعَيْنِ الْإِنْسَانِ حَتَّى نَزَلَتْ الْمُعَوِّذَتَانِ فَلَمَّا نَزَلَتَا أَخَذَ بِهِمَا وَتَرَكَ مَا سِوَاهُمَا
