If fear Jinn what to do
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.
Like the human race, the Jinns are a creation of Allah. They are born, they die, and spend their lives similar to ours in a sphere of their own. They have their own sets of trials and tribulations, worries and happiness, pain and relief, obedience and dis-obedience to Allah, etc. like the human beings. They too have a free will to choose between obedience and dis-obedience, right and wrong, Truth and falsehood; and they too will be gathered by Allah on the Day of Judgment to give a full accounting of their deeds.
They are a distinct creation from the human race, and the human beings and jinns have very little or no real interaction between each other.
Some people do claim to see and conversate with the Jinns, but mostly these accounts are either heresay or imaginations of the people. Allah Alone Knows Best.
Brother, the thing we, as believers, must understand is that the Jinns have absolutely no power to hurt or benefit anyone, without the permission of Allah Subhanah. No harm and no benefit can happen to the believer without the Will of Allah Subhanah. If Allah does not will it, all the jinns of the world can get together, they cannot harm anyone in the least! A believer, should therefore always put all his trust in Allah Subhanah Alone.
All Power and All Strength is with Allah Subhanah Alone.
The next time if you so much as think that you might feel the presence of a Jinn in your house; immediately turn to Allah Subhanah and seek His Protection.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 200-201:
If a suggestion from Shaitaan so much as touches you, seek the refuge of Allah; for He is indeed the All Hearing, All Knowing. Those who fear Allah, when a thought of evil from Shaitaan assaults them, immediately remember Allah, and see the Right Course (they should adopt).
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 175:
It was Shaitaan who was frightening the people with the fear of his friends; therefore, in future, do not fear them, but fear Me (Allah), if you are true believers.
The most the Shayaateen among the Jinn can do to mankind, is whisper a doubt of fear into our hearts. As soon as a believer recognizes this evil act of Shaitaan, he must immediately seek refuge in Allah by reciting Aoodobillahe minas Shaitaan ar Rajeem (I seek refuge in Allah from Shaitaan, the cursed) ; and Insha Allah, no harm will come to him in the least.
Or one may seek the refuge in Allah by reciting the 113th and 114th Surahs of the Quran (Surah Falaq and Surah Naas); and Allah will Insha Allah, protect the believers from the evil of the Shaitaan.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 113 Surah Falaq:
Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn, from the evil of everything that He created; and from the evil of the darkness of the night when it over-spreads; and from the evil of the blowers into knots (magic etc.); and from the evil of the envious when he envies.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 114 Surah Naas:
Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind, the King of mankind, the (real) God of mankind; from the evil of the whisperer (Shaitaan), who returns over and over again; who whispers (evil) into the hearts of men; whether he be from among the Jinn or men.
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.
