Reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Naas at the time of heavy winds and intense darkness

When there are heavy winds together with intense darkness, one should recite Surah Falaq and Surah Naas.

عن عقبة بن عامر، قال: بينا أنا أسير مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بين الجحفة، والأبواء، إذ غشيتنا ريح، وظلمة شديدة، فجعل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يتعوذ بأعوذ برب الفلق، وأعوذ برب الناس، ويقول: يا عقبة، تعوذ بهما فما تعوذ متعوذ بمثلهما (سنن أبي داود، الرقم: 1463)

Hazrat Uqbah ibn Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports: “While I was travelling with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) between Juhfah and Abwa, a strong wind and intense darkness enveloped us. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) began to seek refuge with Allah Ta’ala by reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Naas. He then said, ‘Uqbah, seek refuge with Allah Ta’ala through these two Surahs for none can seek refuge with anything like these two Surahs.’”
