NAME:  الناس, An-Nas.

Name taken from Verse 1-3 where there is a mention of the word ”Nas”. These last two Surahs “Falaq’ and “Nas” are also called Muawwidhatayn because in both these Surahs we are seeking refuge in God.

١  قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ
1  Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind,
٢  مَلِكِ النَّاسِ
2  The Sovereign of mankind.
٣  إِلَٰهِ 
