It was narrated from Mu'adh bin 'Abdullah that his father said:

"It was raining and dark, and we were waiting for the Messenger of Allah ﷺ to lead us in prayer. Then the Messenger of Allah ﷺ came out to lead us in prayer and he said: 'Say.' I said: 'What should I say?' He said: 'Say: He is Allah, (the) One and Al-Mu'awwadhatain in the evening and in the morning, three times, and that will suffice you against everything.'"

It was narrated from Mu'adh bin 'Abdullah bin Khubaib that his father said:

"I was with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ on the road to Makkah when I found myself alone with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. I drew close to him and he said: 'Say.' I said: 'What should I say?' He said: 'Say.' I said: 'What should I say?' He said: 'Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak...' until he finished (the Surah), then he said: 'Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of mankind...' until he finished it. Then he said: 'The people cannot seek refuge with Allah by means of anything better than these two.'"

It was narrated that 'Uqbah bin 'Amir said:

"I was leading the Messenger of Allah ﷺ (on his mount) on a journey, and the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: 'O 'Uqbah, shall I not teach you the best two Surahs that can be recited?' And he taught me: 'Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak.' And 'Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of mankind...' He thought that I did not seem too overjoyed with them, so when he stopped to pray Subh, he recited them when he led the people in the Subh prayer. When the Messenger of Allah ﷺ finished praying, he turned to me and said: 'O 'Uqbah, what do you think?'"

It was narrated that 'Uqbah bin 'Amir said:

"While I was leading the Messenger of Allah ﷺ (on his mount) in one of these mountain passes, he said: 'Why don't you ride, O 'Uqbah?' I had too much respect for the Messenger of Allah ﷺ to ride the mount of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. Then he said: 'Why don't you ride, O 'Uqbah?' I was worried that I might be disobeying him, so he got off, and I rode for a little while, then I got off and the Messenger of Allah ﷺ rode. Then he said: 'Shall I not teach you two of the best Surahs that the people recite?' And he taught me: 'Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak,' and 'Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of mankind." Then the Iqamah was said and he went forward and recited them. Then he passed by me and said: 'What do you think, O 'Uqbah bin 'Amir? Recite them every time you go to sleep and get up.'"
