Abu-Hurairah narrates that the Prophet (pbuh) said: "Whoever recites surat al-Ikhlas eleven times it is as if he read the Qur'an four times; and he would be the best among the people of the earth, as long as he fears Allah." A'isha narrated that a companion, who led an expedition for the Prophet (pbuh), would lead the prayer and end the Qur'anic recitation with Qui huwa Llahu Ahad. When they returned this was mentioned to the Prophet (pbuh) who said: "Ask him why he does so," which they did. He replied: "It is the attribute of al-Rahman (The All-Merciful) and I love to recite it." So the Prophet (pbuh) said: "Tell him that Allah loves him." Anas relates that a man said to the Envoy of Allah: "I love surat al-Ikhlas." He told him: "Love of it will admit you to Paradise." (al-Tirmidhi)

2 & 3. Surat al-Falaq & surat al-Nas (al-Ma'uthatayn) 'Uqbah ibn 'Amir relates that once when he and the Prophet (pbuh) were walking between Juhaifa and al-Abwa, they were hit by a gust of wind and [were shrouded in] intense darkness. Thereupon the Prophet (pbuh) began to recite Qul a'udhu birabbil-falaq and Qul a'udhu birabbin-nas (suras 113 and 114 respectively). The Prophet (pbuh) then said: "O 'Uqbah seek protection from Allah by them, for there is nothing comparable to them when seeking protection." (Narrated by Ibn Daud) The 'Alama Ibn Hajjar said, in relation to this hadith, in his commentary on the Mishkat: "There is nothing more effective in removing, and protecting [oneself from] black magic than reading these (suras) on a regular basis, especially after each prescribed prayer, as we have tried [this and found it to be so].

It is also the formula preferred by Imam al-Haddad and is revealed in the Qur'an in surat al-Muminun (23:97-98Imam al-Ghazali included it among the invocations of wudu and many 'Ulama have taken it from him and approved of it. Amr ibn Shubaib relates from his father, who in turn related it from his father that: "The Prophet (pbuh) taught us [the following] words to say when we awoke from our sleep with a start: In the name of Allah, I seek refuge in the complete words of Allah from His anger, His punishment and from the evil among His creation; and my Lord, I seek refuge in You from the insinuations of devils and I seek refuge in You, My Lord, in their presence.

Did you then think that We created you in vain, and that you would not be returned to Us? But Exalted is Allāh, the True King, there is no god but He, Lord of the Honoured Throne. And whosoever calls upon any other god besides Allāh has no authority for this, and his reckoning is with his Lord; undoubtedly, the non-believers will not be successful. And say (O Prophet Muhammad)! My Lord! Forgive and have mercy and You are the Best of those who show mercy.(23:115-118)

He is Allāh, there is no god but He, The King, The Most Holy, The Bestower of Peace, The Granter of Security, The Guardian, The Mighty, The Compeller, The Supreme in Greatness; Transcendent is Allāh beyond what they ascribe as partner (with Him).
