Three short Surahs suitable for reciting after the Surah al-Fatiha:

Surah Iklhas:

Surah Falaq:

Surah Nas:


In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
All praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
The Beneficent, the Merciful

Master of the Day of Judgment.
Thee only do we worship.
Thee alone we ask for help.
Show us the straight path.
The path of those whom You love and favor
Not the path of those who have earned Thine anger, nor are leading astray.
Be it so.

Following these words, a short chapter of at least three verses should be recited from the Holy Qur'an

Beneficial Effects:
Extends concentration, causes further relaxation of legs and back, generates feelings of humility, modesty and piety. In reciting the above verses, virtually all of the sounds which occur in the Arabic language are uttered, stimulating dispersal of all of the 99 Divine Attributes in perfectly-controlled degrees throughout the body, mind and soul. Sound vibrations of long vowels 'A', 'E' and 'U' stimulate the heart, thyroid, pineal gland, pituitary, adrenal glands and lungs -- purifying and uplifting them all.
