refuge in the Perfect Words of Allah -which neither the upright nor the
corrupt may overcome - from the evil of what He created, of what He
made, and of what He scattered, from the evil of what descends from the
heavens, and of what rises up to them, from the evil of what He
scattered in the earth and of what emerges from it, from the evil trials
of night and day, and from the evil of every night visitor, except the
night visitor who comes with good. O Merciful One.
