Fear of ghost jinn

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Aa Salam Alaikum,


I have been reading Answers from this Forum which is very informataive and helpful in knowing the BEST OF OUR RELIGION. Your efforts are remarkable in spreading the message of The Holy Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammed (SAWS). Keep it up.


I have a question and would appreciate your response at your earliest convenience.


We are presently residing in Middle East in a rented Apartment since 2 Years. Recently one of my younger Sisters visted my house with his family in search of a good job and staying with us since 1 Month.


We converted our Library & Computer Room as her BedRoom, which we used regularly but never slept in it.


She claims that there is an existence of some soul, she could not sleep well and had some bad dreams like someone threating to slick her child`s neck, a couple sitting in the Hall and closing her mouth and threating her from entering the Kitchen.


Since 2 years we didn`t noticed any such thing nor we had such dreams either. My wife stays alone during the day as I leave to Office and my children leave to School.


When my sister told this in my Wife`s absence I didn`t believed, but as a responsible member I need to guard my Family. On Thursday I entered the Kitchen and recited few Quranic Verses and "LaHahaol billah Khuwata Illa Billa ill Aliull Azeem", "La Ilaha Illa Anta Subhanaka Inni Kuntu Minaz Zaalimeen" etc...


In the Night I dreamt that my daughter is hospitalized and her eyes (red) wide open and I am telling her to say "Allah" and I woke up teribbly. Is this a Warning or they threating my Family ?


My children always recite "Aytal kursi" before going to bed and on Friday I made sure they do so. They are not aware of the prevailing situations and I don`t want my Wife and children to know about it IF this is TRUE as it will create unnessary tension and fear.


Let me handle this with the Help of Allah the Lord of both worlds, the most powerful.


What does the Holy Quran / Sunnah guides us to do in situations like this.

Fear of ghost jinn

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.


Dear and Beloved Brother, the Jinns are a separate and distinct creation of the Lord, and they have their own condition and test of life. They have absolutely no power to hurt, harm, or benefit anyone in the least, or do anything that would disrupt the nature of things that are bestowed upon mankind by their Lord All-Mighty.


Everything, and I repeat everything in the Universe happens with the Precise Will and Permission of Allah Subhanah; thus the believers should be content in their belief that if all the Jinns of the world got together and tried to harm anyone, they would not be able to do so in the least without the Will and Permission of Allah Subhanah.


The experience related by your sister whereby she felt the presence of a soul is no more than a paranoia, unjustified fear, and a superstition; and such feelings of paranoia and beliefs of superstition have absolutely no place in Islam. The absolute maximum the evil ones amongst the Jinns can do is whisper something in a persons heart and try to instill unjustified fear in them; but the believers must be content in their belief that nothing and no one in the universe can ever harm them even in the least without the precise Will and Permission of their All-Mighty Lord, thus they should fear none except their Lord Most Merciful Alone.


Besides, the Lord Most Merciful has appointed specific Angels with each in creation that guard them by the command of Allah Subhanah; thus absolutely no harm can approach someone without the Precise Permission and Will of the Lord All-Mighty.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 11: For each there are (Angels appointed) in succession before and behind him: they guard him by command of Allah.


Your Question: In the Night I dreamt that my daughter is hospitalized and her eyes (red) wide open and I am telling her to say "Allah" and I woke up teribbly. Is this a Warning or they threating my Family ?


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.168 Narrated by Abu Salama

I used to see a dream which would make me sick till I heard Abu Qatada saying, "I too, used to see a dream which would make me sick till I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "A good dream is from Allah, so if anyone of you saw a dream which he liked, he should not tell it to anybody except to the one whom he loves; and if he saw a dream which he disliked, then he should seek refuge with Allah from its evil and from the evil of Shaytaan, and spit three times (on his left) and should not tell it to anybody, for it will not harm him."


Dear and Beloved Brother, your dream and the dream of your sister are no more than the futile efforts of the Shaytaan to try to instill his fear into you; for he and his accomplices have absolutely no power to bring about even an iota of harm towards you or your family.


Keep your belief firm and steadfast in your Lord All-Powerful, and whenever you sense this futile effort of the accursed Shaytaan trying to instill some mischief, immediately turn to your Lord and seek refuge in Him Alone; it is expected that your Lord Most Merciful will guard you and your family with His Protection and Mercy.


The Prophet (saws) advised his daughter, Fatimah (r.a.) to recite the following before retiring to bed: Subhan-Allah thirty three times, Al-hamdu-lillah thirty three times, and Allahu Akbar, thirty four times. He (saws) also commended the recitation of Ayatal-Kursi (Quran 2:255), and the Muawidaat (Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Naas) along with the above supplications, and said that he who does so will be under the protection of Allah, Who will assign a protector to protect him.


Dear and Beloved Brother, remain constant in your supplications to your Lord, and make it a habit yourself and also encourage your family to Glorify Allah, recite the Ayatul-Kursi and the Muawidaat as often as you can and especially before they retire to bed; it is expected that no evil or harm will ever approach them in the least, Insha Allah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
