Cure From Black Magic, Jinn & Illness

In recent times, people distressed with ailments - internal and external - have resorted to people who cure through ta'wīdh and, in some cases, through the agency of jinn (or mu'akkal as some call it). I do not intend to go into the depth of the evils that lie within this institution, but would sincerely request readers to take note of the following points with a fair mind and without being biased so that we may be saved from the deceit of Shaytān which is hidden in the form of pious saintly people who claim to have supernatural powers to cure illnesses and solve problems.

  1. Illnesses, problems, calamities, quarrels are natural for humans, and one should look for remedy and solution through lawful means. One should not, without any endeavour, assume the problem or illness to be through black magic or an outside effect. Refer to the doctors and have it treated.
  • If one is suffering from anxiety and depression, and cannot find peace of mind, then he/she should check his/her life and see where the Commands of Allāh and His Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam are being violated. Come nearer to Allāh through His Remembrance, for that is where the contentment of heart and peace of mind lies.

    In the Remembrance of Allāh do hearts find satisfaction. (13:28)

  • The knowledge of the unseen is an Attribute of Allāh the Almighty Only. None in the heavens and on earth knows the unseen except Allāh. Many of these "so called" healers claim to know many things of the unseen, and to believe such people could lead one to kufr. Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam has said, "One who resorts to an 'arrāf (fortune-teller) and asks him about anything, Salāh will not be accepted from him for forty days." (Muslim) Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam has also said, "One who resorts to a kāhin (soothsayer/claimant to the knowledge of the unseen) and believes him in what he says, has rejected that which has been sent down to Prophet Muhammad sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam."
  • Those who violate the law of Allāh cannot be pious. A Walī (Friend) of Allāh is one who abstains from disobedience to Allāh. Those who touch women, who treat women without any veil or partition, who sit with women in solitude i.e. without a male mahram, how can they possibly be the Friends of Allāh. Do not be deceived, friends.
  • In case of doubt, contact your local 'Ulamā or those who have been known to you for years for their taqwā, piety and reliability. insha'allāh, their guidance will save you from going into the wrong hands.
  • How to Safeguard Yourself from Black-Magic

    Allāh ta'ālā, through his Infinite Mercy, has taught His Servants such du'a and recitation which does not only cure, but saves them from the evil effects of black-magic, jinn, etc.:

    1. After completing Fardh Salāh, recite the masnūn wazā'if and thereafter Āyat-ul-Kursī.

      Note: Āyat-ul-Kursī is a verse from Sūrah Al-Baqarah starting “Allāhu lā'ilāha illā huw-al...” (2:255)

    2. Before going to Sleep, read Āyat-ul-Kursī. Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam has said, "Whoever recites Āyat-ul-Kursī at night, a protector (angel) from Allāh continually safeguards him and Shaytān will not come near him until morning."(Bukhari)
    3. Read Sūrah Al-lkhlās, Sūrah Al-Falaq and Sūrah An-Nās after every Fardh Salāh. (Read them thrice after the Fair and Maghrib Salāh).
    4. Before going to sleep, read the last two verses of Sūrah Al-Baqarah. Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam has said, "Whoever recites the last two verses of Sūrah Al-Baqarah at night, they will be sufficient for him.” (They will save him from Shaytān and other misfortunes). (Al-Bukhārī, Muslim)
    5. Read the following du'ā in abundance:

      A'ūdhu bikalimātil-lāhit-tāmmāti min sharri mā khalaq

      Translation: I seek refuge in all the Perfect Words of Allāh from the mischief of His Creations. (Muslim, At-Tirmidhī)

    6. Read the following du'ā at the beginning of the day and night:

      Bismillāhil-ladhī lā yadhurru ma'a-smihī shay'un fil-ardhi wa lā fis-samā'i wahuwas-samī'ul-'alīm

      Translation: In the Name of Allāh with Whose Name nothing can cause harm in the earth and the heaven. And He is All Hearing, All Knowing. (Abū Dāwūd, At-Tirmidhī)

    The above mentioned prayers will, insha'allāh, prevent the evil effects of black-magic and other outside effects. These are measures derived directly from the teaching of the Messenger of Allāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam and, if recited regularly, with sincerity, yaqīn and Trust in Allāh, then one will never complain of evil-effects.

    Remedy for Illnesses

    Regular recitation of the above mentioned is also effective in removing evil effects. Along with these adhkār, turn to Allāh, repent sincerely and beseech Him. After all, it is He Only that brings cure to every illness and solution to every problem. The following du'ā are also effective for cure:

    Allāhumma rabban-nās, adhhibil-bās, ishfi antash-shāfī, lā shifā'a illā shifā'uk, shifā'an lā yughādiru suqmā

    Translation: O Allāh, O the Lord of the people! Remove the pain. Grant cure, You are the Curer. There is no cure except Your Cure. Grant such a cure that leaves no sickness. (Al-Bukhārī, Muslim)

    Bismillāhi arqīka, min kulli shay'in yu'dhīka, wa min sharri kulli nafsin aw 'aynin hāsidin, allāhu yashfīka, bismillāhi arqīka.

    Translation: In The Name of Allāh I make damm (blow) upon you from everything which harms you and from the evil of every person or jealous eye. May Allāh grant you cure. In The Name of Allāh I make damm (blow) on you. (Muslim, Ibn Mājah)

    Once again, remember that those people who violate the laws of Allāh, cannot be saintly persons. Seek guidance from 'Ulamā who are known to you. Insha'allāh, you will not go wrong. May Allāh safeguard all Muslims from calamities; may He safeguard their Dīn; may He give them the correct understanding of Dīn; may He keep them away from every action which is contrary to the teachings of Islam and which brings the Displeasure of Allāh. Āmīn.
