Theses conversion constitute the surah’s a source of guidance that heals it reciters. One of the most recited surah contains 4 Qul. These 4 Qul not only benefits their readers but also increase their spirituality.

Details of 4 Qul:

4 Qul there are four main chapter of the holy Quran. Each chapter has a surah with a different explanation. These surah are among the shortest surah’s of the Quran, making them relatively easy to memorize.

They are 4-6 verses (lines) long. Also, all four chapter begin with the word ‘’Qul,’’ which translates as ‘’say.’’ The holy Prophet (peace be upon him) instructed his followers to recite many beautiful verses.

4 Qul:

This is equal to a quarter of the Quran. A Muslim who recites this surah before going to sleep is safe form of Satan and polytheism.

4 Qul

He came to messenger of Allah, May god bless him and grant him peace, and said: o messenger of Allah, May god bless him and grant him peace, teach ma something that I should when I go to my bed. So he (peace be upon him) said: ‘’read: say: o disbelievers, because this is the negation of polytheism (shirk).’’

It is narrated from Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her):

Importance of Qul:

Each surah has benefits and importance in Islam. Moreover, we will discuss the basic details of these surah’s here.

First of all let me tell you the importance of surah Kaafrun:

Surat al-kafrun is quarter of the entire Quran. Surat al-Kafrun was revealed in Makah. This surah teaches Muslims to maintain their faith in the face of anti-Islamic attitudes of non-Muslims in society.

If non-Muslims refuse to accept the message of Islam, you should stop bothering them. And only follow the message of Prophet in this regard.

The second surah is surah Ikhlas:

The word Ikhlas  means  ‘’purity’’. This surah is more in number because this surah is equal to one third of the holy Quran. Total five verses in the surah

Surah Ikhlas is entirely about the name of Allah and his attributes, that is why this surah named surah Ikhlas. This surah tells us the only about Allah and his permission.

The name of third surah is surah al-Falaq:

There are total five verses in this surah. This surah support Allah’s protection from evil eye and his creature from black magic. Our Prophet (peace be upon him) sought refuge with Allah after the revelation of this surah.

Last but not least the fourth surah is surah al-Nas:

It has total of six verses and is the last chapter of the Quran. This surah guides us on how to ask Allah to protect us from evils of humans. And also negative thoughts incites by the jinn.

In short, these surah are quite easy to read, however, they have great advantages. Therefore, every Muslim should read this 4 Qul surah’s regularly. So that he can benefit from the blessings and virtues of these surah of the holy Quran.

Benefits of Qul:

By reciting the 4 verses together, a believersubmits himself to god’s protection. Each deed acts as protective charm. If recited together, a Muslim is protected from every calamity.


4 Qul are very short but very powerful prayers that we as Muslims should recite frequently. The weight given to them is quite heavy and can lead to significant reward from which we can benefit on the Day of Judgment.
