مَنْ قَرَأَ بِالآيَتَيْنِ مِنْ آخِرِ سُورَةِ الْبَقَرَةِ فِي لَيْلَةٍ كَفَتَاهُ

متفق عليه

Lessons from the Hadith

– Imam An-Nawawi explains in the Explanation of Sahih Muslim,

“It is said the recitation of these two ayat will (with the permission of Allaah):

1) suffice the reciter from praying qiyamul layl (night prayer),
2) protect him from Shaitaan,
3) protect him from calamities.

All these meanings/explanations are applicable together as well”.
