qul auzu bi rabbin nas, commonly known as Surah An-Nas is the last chapter of the Quran. It is also one of the shortest surahs of the Quran with only 6 ayat make it easy to recite and memorize.

The benefit of reciting this surah is it asks Allah for protection from all evils of this world. This includes protection from jinn, shaitan, and mischievous people.

The Prophet (ﷺ) had mentioned in Sahih hadith (Darussalam) that some Ayat have been revealed to me the likes of which have not been seen: Qul A’udhu Birabbin-Nas and Qul A’udhu Birabbil-Falaq.

It’s also reported that whenever Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) went to bed, he used to blow on his hands while reciting the Mu’auwidhat ( i.e. Suratal-Falaq 113 and Surat-an-Nas 114) and he would pass his hands over his body. (Sahih al-Bukhari 6319)
