Tafsir (commentary)

Tafsir As-Saadi (from here):

From the evil of those who blow on knots,” i.e. witches who would blow on knots to aid them in their sorcery which they had tied in the ways of their secret art.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir (from here):

(And from the evil of the blowers in knots,) Mujahid, `Ikrimah, Al-Hasan, Qatadah and Ad-Dahhak all said, “This means the witches.” Mujahid said, “When they perform their spells and blow into the knots.”

In another Hadith it has been reported that Jibril came to the Prophet and said, “Are you suffering from any ailment, O Muhammad” The Prophet replied,


(Yes.) So Jibril said, “In the Name of Allah, I recite prayer (Ruqyah) over you, from every illness that harms you, from the evil of every envious person and evil eye. May Allah cure you.”
