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:
asalamu alaikum, burhan bhai.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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.
To determine if it is possible for a human being to get control of a jinn, one needs to understand the concept of the creation of the Jinns.
Allah Subhanah created the Jinns from a smokeless flame of fire before He created man from dust; and gave both, the Jinn and mankind, two things which He did not bestow on any in His Magnificient creation as a test:
Intelligence or the Power of Reasoning
A free will for a limited period of one life-time to choose whatever path one wishes to live his life.
Thus, just as mankind are involved in a test of life, the Jinns too are involved in a test; and all will be gathered and Judged by the Supreme Judge on an Inevitable Day of Judgment. The Jinns, like mankind, have their own lives, their fears, their happiness, their hopes, their worries, their sorrows, their good and their evil. They have absolutely nothing to do with the test of life determined by the Lord for mankind; neither can they help man in his test, nor can they hurt man in his test; the absolute maximum the evil amongst the Jinn can do is whisper something in the hearts of mankind and inspire man towards evil and thus the disobedience of Allah.and not even an iota more!
Your Question: i just wanted to ask that there are some people saying that we can get controll over jinns if we recite specified surah for a specified time, is it true please answer my question
Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat
185:Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a
Perfect Guidance for mankind and consists of clear Teachings which show the
Allah Subhanah revealed the Glorious Quran for the guidance of all mankind to the Straight Path.
The Jinns, like man and everything in creation between the heavens and the earth is in the Absolute and Complete Control of none, but our Lord Most Merciful, Allah Subhanah. There is absolutely no truth in the false claim of some evil and misguided people who say that man can get control over the Jinns if man recites a specific Surah for a specified time..this is an absolutely false claim and a blasphemy against the Glorious and Noble Words of Allah Subhanah, and all those who make such false claims shall be brought forth as criminals in the Just and Supreme Court of Allah Subhanah on an Inevitable Day to answer for their blasphemy!
The Jinns and the humans are both involved in a separate and distinct test of life determined by their All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord and have absolutely no interaction with one-another, except that the evil amongst the Jinns may whisper something in the hearts of man to inspire him towards evil and thus the disobedience of their Lord.the Jinns do not have the power to do an iota more!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 114 Surah An-Naas verses 1-6:
1 Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind (Allah)
2 The King (or Ruler) of Mankind (Allah)
3 The Allah (or Judge) of Mankind (Allah)
4 From the mischief of the Whisperer (of evil) who withdraws (after his whisper)
5 (The same) who whispers into the hearts of mankind
6 Among Jinns, and among Men.
In this test of life determined by the Lord All-Mighty, neither can the Jinn be controlled by mankind, nor can mankind be controlled by the Jinn. Absolutely everything, and I repeat, everything is under the Absolute and Complete control of none, except our Majestic and Supreme Lord, Allah Subhanah wa Taala.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of being led astray.
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.
