Tafsir As-Saadi (from here):

From the evil of what He created,” all that Allah created: man, jinn and animal. Therefore one takes refuge with their Creator from the evil they contain.[3]

[3] Muslim reports from Qais ibn Hazim from `Uqbah ibn `Amir (radiallahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said,

“Have you not the heard the verses that were revealed last night, the likes of which have never been heard? (They were): Say: I take refuge with the Lord of daybreak and Say: I take refuge with the Lord of mankind.”

In another wording the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said,

“Shall I not inform you of the best thing that those seeking refuge can seek refuge with?” I replied, “Of course.” He said, “Say: I take refuge with the Lord of daybreak and Say: I take refuge with the Lord of mankind.”

Tirmidhi records that `Uqbah ibn `Amir (radiallahu anhu) said,

“The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) commanded me to read the Mu`awwidhatayn after every prayer.”

Tirmidhi, Nasa’i and Abu Dawud record that `Abdullah bin Habib said,

“We went out in search of the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) during a dark and rainy night. When we found him he said, ‘Speak!’ but I did not say anything. Again he said, ‘Speak!’ but I did not say anything. A third time he said, ‘Speak!’ upon which I asked, ‘Messenger of Allah, what should I say?’ He replied, ‘Say, Say: He is Allah, the One and only and the Mu`awwidhatayn three times when you lie down to sleep and when you awake. They will suffice you against everything.’”

Tirmidhi also records the hadith of Abu Hurayrah (radiallahu anhu) from Abu Sa`id (radiallahu anhu) that,

“The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) used to seek refuge from Jinn and the evil eye until the Mu`awwidhatayn were revealed. When they were revealed, he took to (reciting) them and abandoned (seeking refuge through) anything else.”

Tafsir Ibn Kathir (from here):

(From the evil of what He has created,) This means from the evil of all created things. Thabit Al-Bunani and Al-Hasan Al-Basri both said, “Hell, Iblis and his progeny, from among that which He (Allah) created.”
