Surah Falaq: The Daybreak

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn
Pickthall:   Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the Daybreak
Yusufali:    From the mischief of created things;
Pickthall:   From the evil of that which He created;
Yusufali:    From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads;
Pickthall:   From the evil of the darkness when it is intense,
Yusufali:    From the mischief of those who practise secret arts;
Pickthall:   And from the evil of malignant witchcraft,
Yusufali:    And from the mischief of the envious one as he practises envy.
Pickthall:   And from the evil of the envier when he envieth.
