Present study explores the effect of Hall current, non-linear radiation, irregular heat source/sink on magnetohydrodynamic flow of Casson nanofluid past a nonlinear stretching sheet. Viscous and Joule dissipation are incorporated in the energy equation. An accurate numerical solution of highly nonlinear partial differential equations, describing the flow, heat and mass transfer, by a new Spectral Paired Quasi-linearization method is obtained and effect of various physical parameters such as hall current parameter, radiation parameter, Eckert number, Prandtl number, Lewis number, thermophoresis parameter and Brownian motion parameter on the thermal, hydro-magnetic and concentration boundary layers are observed. The analysis shows that variation of different thermo-magnetic parameter induces substantial impression on the behaviour of temperature and nanoparticle distribution. Thermal boundary layer is greatly affected by conduction radiation parameter.
