In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
113.1 Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak. 113.2 From the evil of that which He created. 113.3 And from the evil of darkness when it settles. 113.4 And from the evil of the blowers in knots. 113:5 And from the evil of an envier when he envies.

The Prophet ﷺ was known to recite these chapters of the Quran every night before he went to sleep. He would cup his hands, recite the chapters into them, and then pass his hands all over his body.
He ﷺ was also known to recite these verses anytime he was ill. Such that when he was so ill that he couldn’t recite them by himself, his wife, Aisha r.a reported that she used to recite them and rub them all over his body.
