Among layers of Creamy white paint and gel mediums, 24 k gold paint and silver leaf; I painted the 4 Qul. These four Surahs are:
These are known as protecting powerful surahs. Surah Kaafiroon and Ikhlaas protects from shirk. Surah Ikhlaas is pure Tawheed and equal to 1/3rd of the Quran. Surahs falaq and naas protect from mischief of created things, envy, magic and the whisperings of the shaitaan. All the surahs start with the word ‘Qul’ which actually means ‘say’. Hence the four surahs are collectively called as ‘the four quls’. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would get revelations from Allah which would start with the word ‘say’ and he would exactly repeat the revelations to people.
In the way that the four qul surahs were revealed to mankind as a protection, so the believers that pray Faj'r, when the rest of the world is fast asleep, safeguard their destiny in their trust in Allah.
