4 Qul in Quran is the name of four small Surahs. Being a Muslims, we have faith in the Quran that this book is the only way to get complete life guidance. So we should recite the whole Quran, but some parts in the Quran have many virtues and have a great impact on Allah’s human faith. In these parts, 4 Qul is also included. These surah’s names started with the word Qul, which means “Say.” Names of these surahs are Surah al-Kafirun, Surah al-Ikhlas, Surah al-Falaq, and Surah al-Nas.

Importance and Benefits of Reciting Four Quls
4 Qul in Quran is considered as protecting surahs. In Quran, we called these surahs 4 Qul because all of them start with the Arabic word “Qul,” which means “Say.” A large number of Muslims have memorized these surahs. The verses of these surahs protect you from different things, such as Surah al-kafiroon and Surah Ikhlaas protect you from bad sins and shirk. In contrast, Surahs Al-Falaq and Surah An-Naas protect you from the mischief of created things, envy, and from the shaitan.
Being a Muslim, we believe that if we recite all these surahs and blow from ourselves, then these surahs will act as protecting shield which gonna protect us from every harm. In the morning, before stepping out of the home, if we recite these Qul along with Ayatul kursi, it will protect us all day long.
In Islam, 4 Qul and Ayatul Kursi have equal importance because these surahs protect you from many harms that you can’t even imagine. Moreover, Reciting Surah Ikhlas three times is considered equivalent to reciting the entire Quran. Surah Ikhlas has much importance in Quran. Surah Ikhlas is also recited in the five daily prayers in each rak’ak.
