Then the Imam Abu Muhammad Al Hassan(a.s.) said:
‘The Words of Allah(s.w.t.) that you have been Commanded to say before reading the Quran are – I seek refuge with Allah(s.w.t.) Who is the all Hearing, the all Knowing, (Who Protects) from the accursed Satan.’
For this the Commander of the Faithful(a.s.) said:
‘The Words – I seek refuge with Allah(s.w.t.) who is the Hearing – is that He(s.w.t.) listens to every good and bad things, as well as all manifest and hidden things.’
‘The Knowing‘ – He(s.w.t.) is the Knower of all good and bad acts of the past, present and the future.
‘From the Castaway Satan‘ – Satan is far from every good and is a castaway
by the Curse and is being pelted away with stones from every good. This is
the refuge that Allah(s.w.t.) has Commanded to be sought for the reading of the Quran.
Allah(s.w.t.) Says: So when you recite the Quran, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan, Surely he has no authority over those who believe and rely on their Lord. His authority is only over those who befriend him and those who associate others with Him. [16:98 – 100] – And whoever follows these etiquettes, Allah(s.w.t.) will make him achieve eternal success, and whoever listens to the Testament and accepts it, will achieve good in both worlds.’
