Fear of Jinns

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.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 114 Surah An-Naas verses 4-6:

4 (Say: I seek refuge in Allah ) 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.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 14 Surah Ibraheem verse 22:

22 And the Shaytaan (on the Day of Judgment) will say when the matter is decided: "It was Allah Who gave you a promise of Truth: I too promised, but I failed in my promise to you. I had no authority over you except to call you, but ye listened to me: then reproach not me but reproach your own souls. I cannot listen to your cries nor can ye listen to mine. I reject your former act in associating me with Allah. For wrongdoers there must be a Grievous Penalty."


In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Quran, the absolute maximum the Jinn has the power to do is to whisper some evil into the hearts of men, and inspire man to transgress the boundaries of Allah and commit some evil! They have absolutely no power to help or hurt any human being, and they absolutely do not possess the power to possess a human being. Thus one who sincerely believes in Allah should keep their absolute full trust and belief in none save the Lord Most High, and know with conviction that Absolute and Complete Power and Strength is with none save their Lord, Allah Subhanah, the Lord of everything that exists.


If one fears any mischief from the evil Jinns, all one needs to do is follow the example of the Prophet (saws) and recite the Muawidaat or the 113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas and reaffirm their seeking refuge in the Lord Most High from the mischief of the Shayaateen; it is expected that the Lord Most High will protect them from any and all mischief of the Shaytaan.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4563 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri

Allah's Messenger (saws) used to seek refuge in Allah from the Jinn and the ‘evil eye’ in men till the Mu'awwidhatan (113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas) were revealed, after which he made use of them and abandoned everything else.


Dear and beloved Sister, if one fears any harm from any quarter whatsoever, the only remedies or dua one needs is to recite the 113th Surah Al-Falaq and the 114th Surah An-Naas and thus seek the refuge with Allah Subhanah from any and all evil ever approaching them; it is expected that their Lord Most High will protect them from every harm.


Once one has sought refuge with Allah Subhanah, they should keep their absolute trust and belief in the Power and Strength of their Lord Alone, and need not fear any harm approaching them from any jinn, or magic, or evil eye, or any other quarter of the unseen! Allah Subhanah Alone suffices as one’s Protector and Helper.


If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one 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), one can be assured of being led astray.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
