Reciting Surah Kaafiroon, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas if one gets stung by a scorpion

If one gets stung by a scorpion, one should take some water and salt, and rub it over the area while reciting Surah Kaafiroon, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas.

وعن علي قال: لدغت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عقرب وهو يصلي، فلما فرغ قال: لعن الله العقرب لا تدع مصليا ولا غيره ثم دعا بماء وملح، فجعل يمسح عليها ويقرأ: قل يا أيها الكافرون و قل أعوذ برب الفلق وقل أعوذ برب الناس. (المعجم الصغير للطبراني، الرقم: 5890، وقال الهيثمي في مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 8445: وإسناده حسن)

Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that once a scorpion stung Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) while he was performing salaah. When he completed his salaah, he said, “May Allah Ta‘ala curse the scorpion, it does not leave a person performing salaah or anyone else.” He then called for some water and salt, and then while rubbing the area (with the salt water), he recited Surah Kaafiroon, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas.
