In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Say: I seek refuge in the Rabb of mankind,[1] the King of mankind,[2] the real God of mankind,[3] from the mischief of the slinking whisperers (Shaitãn and his workers)[4] who whisper into the hearts of people,[5] whether he be from among the jinn or from mankind.[6]

114:[1-6]

Seek refuge with Allah from the slinking whisperers

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Seek refuge with Allah from all evils.
* Seek refuge with Allah from the slinking whisperers.

As soon as the Prophet (pbuh) began to preach the message of Islam, it seemed as though he had provoked all classes of the people around him. As his message spread the opposition of the disbelieving Qureysh also became more and more intense. As long as they had any hope that they would be able to prevent him from preaching his message by throwing some temptation in his way, or striking some bargain with him, their hostility did not become very active. But when the Prophet completely disappointed them by the fact that he would not accept any kind of compromise with them in the matter of Faith, and in Sürah Al-Kãfirün they were plainly told: “I do not worship those who you worship nor are you worshippers of Him Whom I worship. For you is your religion and for me is mine”, the hostility reached its extreme limits. More particularly, the families whose members (men, women, boys or girls) had accepted Islam, were burning with rage against the Prophet. They were cursing him, holding secret consultations to kill him quietly in the darkness of the night so that the Bani Hashim could not discover the murderer and take revenge; magic and charms were being worked on him so as to cause his death, make him fall ill, or become mad; shaitãns from among the men and jinn spread everywhere to whisper one or another evil into the hearts of the people against him and the Qur’an he brought, to incite suspicion and cause him to flee. There were many people who were burning with jealousy, for they could not tolerate it that a man from a different family or clan should flourish and become prominent. For example, the reason why Abu Jahl was crossing every limit in his hostility to the Prophet was explained by him: “We and the Bani Abdi Manãf (to which the Prophet belonged) were rivals of each other: they fed the poor, we too fed the poor; they provided conveyances to the people, we too did the same; they gave donations, we too gave donations, so much so that when they and we have become equal in honor and nobility, they now proclaim that they have a Prophet who is inspired from heaven; how can we compete with them in this field? By God, we will never acknowledge him, nor affirm faith in him.”

(Ibn Hishãm, vol. I, pp. 337-338) Under these conditions, the Prophet (pbuh) was commanded to tell the people: “I seek refuge with the Lord of the dawn, from the evil of everything that He has created, and from the evil of the darkness of night and from the evil of magicians, men and women, and from the evil of the envious,” and to tell them: “I seek refuge with the Rabb of mankind, the King of mankind, and the Deity of mankind, from the evil of the whisperer, who returns over and over again, who whispers (evil) into the hearts of men, whether he be from among the jinn or men.” This is similar to what the Prophet Moses had been told to say when Pharaoh had expressed his desire to kill him before his full court: “I have taken refuge with my Rabb and your Rabb against every arrogant person who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning.” (Sürah Al-Mu’min: 27). And: “I have taken refuge with my Rabb and your Rabb lest you should assail me.” (Sürah Ad-Dukhãn: 20).

On both occasions, these illustrious Prophets of Allah were confronted with well-equipped, resourceful and powerful enemies. On both occasions, they stood firm on the message of Truth against their strong opponents, even though they had no material power on the strength of which they could fight them, and on both occasions they utterly disregarded the threats, dangerous plans and hostile devices of the enemy, saying: “We have taken refuge with the Rabb of the universe against you.” Obviously, such firmness and steadfastness can be shown only by the person who has the conviction that the power of His Rabb is the supreme power, that all powers of the world are insignificant against Him, and that no one can harm the one who has taken His refuge. Only such a person can say: “I will not give up preaching the Word of Truth. I care the least for what you may say or do, for I have taken refuge with my Rabb and your Rabb and Rabb of the whole universe.”
