The world in darkness and evil

In the fiery world of trials and tribulations, darkness is a dominant force in the existence of many beings and communities. The force which truly distinguishes us from fellow human beings alike is the constituent of faith also termed as Imaan; believing in Allah alone and importantly; not ascribing any partner to Allah Azzawajal and neither attributing qualities of Allah Azzawajal to beings who are His creation; irrespective of their piety, nobility or ancestry. The moment we ascribe partners to Allah Azzawajal, we are no more people of Islamic Faith or Mumineen. This is a rather grave situation as Allah Azzawajal forgives all sins besides those that are classified as Shirk by the righteous scholars or anything of the like.

Today, the force of Shirk tries to squeeze out the lives of many people. They become victims of suffering in their emotional, physical, social, financial and intellectual life. They become restless to the fantasies of beings that we cannot see, out of fear. My dear brother and sister: know well that Allah Azzawajal has kept humankind His Vicegerents on this earth, meaning: we are the most superior form of creation. The egos of Shayateen and Jinn thrive when we express fear to them and yet Allah Azzawajal has made us intellectually superior to them! Physically, they may have the upper hand but that will never make them superior to us in the sight of Allah Azzawajal. There are two physical and two spiritual weapons to combat these evil Jinn, their sorcery which they carry to and from sorcerers to harm people and cause turbulent wave patterns in their lives, as well to prevent them from entering one’s being.

2 Physical and Spiritual Weapons

The two physical are:

1.Lifestyle adjustments: towards the obedience of Allah Azzawajal and shunning of sins especially Shirk as well as adopting the company of those people involved in Shirk.
2. Eating Halaal and Tayyib (pure) food: As much as KFC or Chicken Licken may be tempting, nothing beats the delicious warm plate of food which is filled with the warmth and love of a wife for her husband or mother for her children and garnished with absolutely Halaal ingredients. This is a great preventative measure for Sihar (sorcery) intake to be minimized. Included in this, is eating regularly at take-aways or areas where the source of the food is either Haraam, doubtful or handled by people who are not conscience about Halaal or Haraam.

The two spiritual are:

1. Recitation of Qur’aan in abundance: through different cases of Ruqya, we can say for certain that the benefits of Qur’aan are not merely for attaining reward in the Hereafter. They are truly effective in this world and against combatting Sihar or the drastic effects thereof. Shayateen or Evil Jinn get repelled very easily and “burn” when Qur’aan is recited on them with the intention of destroying them. Yes, you read right! Destroying them if they are worthy due to being agents of Shirk and Sihar. Recitation of Qur’aan constantly protects oneself and nurtures the heart with Allah Azzawajal’s love. It paves a way for an opening to the heart filled with light and protection.

2.Conviction and Sincerity: the good intentions and deeds of a person is exemplified with sincerity and the intention of a person is exemplified with conviction. We intend to rid our lives of falsehood caused by Sihar through Shirk and we must have conviction that Allah Azzawajal will make it a reality. We do good deeds with sincerity and we must be convinced that Allah Azzawajal will reward us for the,.

The above 4 weapons are highly useful in combatting Sihar stimulated through Shirk. You do not need to be visiting the Raaqis for regular “check-ups.” Allah Azzawajal has provided the weapons for you to protect yourself. You should harness these weapons and thank Allah Azzawajal for them.

There may be times where sometimes it is necessary to seek treatment for Sihar (sorcery) through Shirk (ascribing partners with Allah Azzawajal) and hence Islam has provided a solution just like any other matter of our existence. The solution is the Islamic Science of Ruqya.

The need for Ruqya in South Africa

Alhamdulillah, Allah Azzawajal has blessed the South African community with diversity in culture and tradition which influences people’s backgrounds and the way they practice Islam; to an extent. However, the principles of Islam supersede all cultural boundaries and traditions. Islam is the uniting factor between Muslims. Diversity within the Muslim population may at times present a possible threat due to relations shared between associates, colleagues, family and friends that are Non-Muslim and live their lives in Shirk. More importantly, diversity in culture may lend to the notion of witchcraft and sorcery (Sihar) being permissible in certain cultures and religions. However, Islam has totally prohibited such a culture. In fact, Sihar through Shirk is severely detestable in the sight of Allah Azzawajal as it is the single major sin which Allah Azzawajal never forgives.

In South Africa, we find many people that utilize sorcery out of cowardice. They cannot confront people amidst conflict; they bottle in their frustration and they turn to Sihar and Jinn to aid them in bringing harm to fellow human beings. Sorcerers (Saahir) offer sacrifices to Evil Jinn or Shayateen or worship them in exchange for things to materialize in favor of the sorcerer and in turn; the person who utilizes the sorcerer to do his wicked actions. This vicious cycle continues and affects innocent Muslim families and communities. Marriages break up, relationships sour, financial turbulence is the norm and emotional instability creams the cake of negativity and depression in a person’s life. People become desperate and resort to measures which further worsen their problems.

Du‘as for Protection

by: Muallimah Sa’uda Ismail taken from Madrasah Ummul Hasanaat.
There are numerous du‘as from hadeeth. Below are a few:

1. Kalimah Tawheed
Recite after Fajr, “Laa ilaa ha illAllaah wahdahoo laa shareeka lahoo, lahul mulku, wa lahul hamdu, wa hula ‘alaa kulli shay-inn qadeer” 100 times.

Translation: There is none worthy of worship besides Allah who is alone. He has no partner. For him is the Kingdom, and for Him is all praise. He gives life and causes death. In His hand is all good. And He has power over everything.

Rasoolullaah (SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said “Whosoever says ‘Laa ilaa ha illAllaah wahdahoo law shareeka lahoo, lahul mulku, wa lahul hamdu, wa hula ‘alaa kulli shay-inn qadeer’ 100 times a day, will have the reward equal to the freeing of 10 slaves, will have 10 good deeds added to and 10 bad deeds erased from his register, and he will be protected by this supplication from Shaytaan throughout the day until the evening. No one is better than he who says this supplication except a man who says more”. [Saheeh Bukhari (Fat-hul Baari 6/338) and Saheeh Muslim (an-Nawawi 17/17)].

2. Recite in the morning and in the evening, 
A‘oodhu bi kalimaatillaah-it-taammaati min sharri ma khalaq

Translation: I seek refuge in the Perfect Words of Allah from the evil of what He has created.
[Saheeh Muslim (an-Nawawi 17/32)].

3. Say in the morning and in the evening (thrice): A‘oodhu bi kalimaat-illaah-it-taammah min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli ‘aynil laammah

Translation: I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from every devil and poisonous reptile, and from every envious evil eye.

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas (RadiyAllaahu ‘anhu) said: The Prophet (SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) used to seek protection for Sayyidunaa al-Hasan and al- Husayn: “A‘oodhu bi kalimat-Allah il-taammah min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli ‘aynin laammah”. And he would say: “Your father (Ibraheem Alayhis-Salaam) used to seek protection by means of them (these words) for Ismaa‘eel and Ishaaq.” [Sahih Bukhari, Kitab al Anbiya, 4/179].

4. Say, A‘oodhu bi kalimaat-illah il-taammati min ghada-bihee wa ‘iqabihee wa min sharri ‘ibadihee wa min hamazaat-is-shayaateen wa ay-yahduroon three times.

Translation: I take refuge in the perfect words of Allah from His anger and punishment, and from the evil of His servants, and from the madness and appearance of devils.

It was narrated from al-Walid ibnul-Walid (RadiyAllaahu ‘anhu) that he said: “O Messenger of Allah, I feel lonely.” He said: “When you go to bed, say: A‘oodhu bi kalimaat-illah il-taammati min ghada-bihee wa ‘iqabihee wa min sharri ‘ibadihee wa min hamazaat-is-shayaateen wa ay-yahduroon (I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from His wrath and punishment, and from the evil of His slaves, and from the whispers of the devils and from their being present), then they (the devils) will not harm you or come near you.” [Ibn Al-Sunni: Ma Yaqul Idhaa Akhadha Madja’ahu, p. 201, no. 705].

5. Say Bismillaahil ladhee laa yadurru ma‘asmihee shay-unn fil-ardi wa-laa fis-samaa’i wa huwas-Samee‘ul-‘Aleem three times in the morning and three times in the evening. [Tirmidhi: 5/133].

Translation: In the Name of Allah, with Whose Name nothing on the earth or in the heaven can cause harm, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

6. Read Hasbiyallaahu Laa ilaaha illaa Huwa ‘alayhi tawakkaltu wa Huwa Rabbul-‘arsh-il ‘Azeem seven times morning & evening.

Translation: Allah is Sufficient for me, none has the right to be worshipped except Him, upon Him I rely and He is Lord of the exalted throne.

7. A‘oodhu bikalimaatil-laahit-taammaatil-latee Laa yujaawizu hunna barrun Wa Laa Faajiroenn min sharri maa khalaq, wa bara-a wa dhara’a, wa min sharri maa yanzilu minas-Samaa-i wa min sharri maa ya’ruju feehaa, wa min sharri maa dhara’a fiel Ardi wa min sharri maa yakhruju minhaa, wa min sharri fitanil-layli wan-nahaar, wa min sharri kulli taariqin illaa taariqan yaţruqu bikhayrin Yaa Rahmaan.

Translation: I take refuge within Allah’s perfect words which no righteous or unrighteous person can transgress, from all the evil that He has created, made and originated. (I take refuge) from the evil that descends from the sky and the evil that rises up to it. (I take refuge) from the evil that is spread on Earth and the evil that springs from her, and I take refuge from the evil of the tribulations of night and day, and the evil of one who visits at night except the one who brings good, O Merciful

8. A‘oodhu billaahi mina-shaytaani rajeemi min nafkhihee wa nafthihee wa hamzihee

Translation: I seek refuge with Allah from the Satan’s arrogance, poetry, epilepsy and lunacy.

Jubayr Ibn Mut’im (RadiyAllaahu ‘anhu) reported: “I saw the Prophet (SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) say: (Allahu akbaru kabeeraa, walhamdu lillaahi katheeraa, wa subhanallaahi bukrataw-wa aseelaa)
 three times
 ‘A‘oodhu billaahi mina-shaytaani rajeemi min nafkhihee wa nafthihee wa hamzihee 
(Allah (‘Azza wa Jalla) is the Greatest, much Praise be to Allah if, and Glory be to Allah if in the morning and in the evening. I seek refuge with Allah (‘Azza wa Jalla) from the Satan’s arrogance, poetry, epilepsy and lunacy.) [Abu Dawud (1/203); classed by Al-Albani as authentic].

9. Aayat Kursiyy (Verse of the Throne)
Allahu laa ilaaha illa Huwa-l-Hayyul-Qayyoom La ta’khudhuhoo sinatuw wa la nawm, lahoo maa fis-samaawaati wa maa fil-‘ard. Man dhal-ladhee yashfa‘u ‘indahu illaa bi-idhnihee. Ya’lamu ma bayna aydeehim wa maa khalfahum, wa laa yuheetoona bi shay-im-min ‘ilmihee illaa bimaa shaa-a. Wasi‘a kursiyyuhus-samaawaati wal ard, wa laa ya-ooduhu hif-dhuhumaa Wa Huwal ‘Aliyyul-Adheem.

Translation: Allah, there is no one but He, the Ever Living, the One Who Sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter . And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Thrown extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

Make Wudhu before going to bed, recite Aayat Kursiyy until you fall asleep. It is confirmed that Shaytaan told Abu Hurayrah (RA): “Whosoever recites Ayatul Kursiyy before going to bed, he will be guarded by Allah and no Shaytaan will approach him throughout the night.” The Prophet (Peace and Blessing upon Him) confirmed the Satan’s statement and told Abu Hurayrah “Satan told you the truth, but he is a liar.” [Saheeh al-Bukhari (Fath Al-Bari: 6/338) and Muslim (An-Nawawi: 17/17)].

10. Aamanr-Rasool
Aamanar-rasoolu bimaa unzila ilayhi mir-rabbihee wal-mu’minoon
. Kullun aamana billaahi wa mala-ikatihee wa kutubihee wa rusulihee. 
Laa nufarriqu bayna ahadim-mir-rusulih. 
Wa qawloo sami’naa wa ata’naa ghuf-rawnaka rabbanaa wa ilaykal maseer. Laa yukallifullaahu nafsann illaa wus‘ahaa. 
Lahaa maa kasabat wa ‘alayha maktasabat.

a. Rabbanaa wa laa tuham-milnaa ma laa tawqata lanaa bih. 
Wa’fu ‘annaa, waghfir lanaa, warhamnaa. 
Anta mawlaanaa, fansurnaa ‘alal-qawmil kaafireen.

Translation: The Messenger (Muhammad SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allâh, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say), “We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers” and they say, “We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all).” (285) Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. “Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians); our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Mawlaa (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people.”

It was narrated that Abu Mas’ood al-Ansari (RadiyAllaahu ‘anhu) said: “The Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said: ‘Whoever recites the last two verses of Surat al-Baqarah at night, that will suffice him.’” (Saheeh al-Bukhaari, Muslim)

11. Surah Ikhlaas
Qul huwal-laahu ahad. Allaahus-Samad. Lam yalid wa lam yoolad. Wa lam yakul-lahoo kufuwwann Ahad.

Translation: Say: He is Allah (the) One. The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He begets not nor was He begotten, and there is none co-equal to Him.

12. Surah Falaq
Qul a‘oodhu birabbil-falaq. Min Sharri maa khalaq. Wa min sharri ghawsiqinn idhaa waqab. Wa min sharri-n-Naffaathaati fi-l ‘uqad. Wa min sharri haasidienn idhaa hasad.

Translation: Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak, from the evil of what He has created, and from the evil of the darkening (night) as it comes with its darkness, and from the evil of those who practice witchcraft when they blow in the knots, and from the evil of the envier when he envies.

13. Surah Naas
Qul a‘oodhu birabbin-Naas. Malikin-Naas. Ilaahin-Naas. Min sharril-was-waasil-Khannaas. Al-Ladhee yuwaswisu fee sudoorin-Naas. Minal-Jinnati Wan-Naas.

Translation: Say: I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of mankind, the King of mankind , the God of mankind , from the evil of the whisperer who withdraws, who whispers in the breasts of mankind, of jinns and men.

It was narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudriyy (RadiyAllaahu ‘anhu) said: “The Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) used to seek refuge with Allah from the jinn and from the evil eye until the Mu‘awwidhatayn were revealed, and when they were revealed he started to recite them and not anything else”. [Tirmidhi, Nasaa-i, Ibn Maajah].

Can humans marry Jinn?

by: Muallimah Sa’uda Ismail (taken from Madrasah Ummul Hasanaat)

I have heard many stories of Jinn marrying humans or falling in love with humans. Is it true and is marriage allowed to jinn? As-Suyooti (rahimahullah) mentioned many such reports from the early generations and scholars pointing to the existence of marriages between humans and jinn. Ibn Taimiyah (rahimahullah) said: “Humans and jinn have married and have had children, this has happened often and is well-known.” Assuming it is possible, many of the scholars showed a dislike for such a marriage. Allah knows best.

Many people say that they have seen offspring from the union of a human and jinn but that is extremely rare. In my experience of witnessing a woman go through what was supposed to be a jinn pregnancy, all that happened was that her abdomen grew large for many many months, which means over 9 months. The woman went for scans and was told that there was nothing there yet she continued to feel and see movement as a foetus does. A raaqi (one who treats people afflicted with sihr) later confirmed that it was sihr and the foetus of a jinn inside her but that the foetus would only cause her harm and could never be born. So majority of ‘Ulama are of the opinion that there would be no offspring if a human and a jinn were to marry each other. Although this story is true, we do not form our our beliefs on stories even though they may be true. It is really difficult to know how authentic stories are because human and jinn are two different species and also jinn are shape-shifters. How would you know if a female human actually married a male jinn or visa versa? Since a male jinn can take the form of a female human or anything for that matter. So, this is a sensitive issue.

According to Mughni Al-Muhtaj by Al-Khateeb Asherbini, a Shafi’ee scholar, there are two kinds of prohibitions to marriage: perpetual and non-perpetual.

Of the perpetual prohibitions is marriage between humans and jinn; it is not lawful for a member of human kind to marry a jinn. Allah ‘Azza wa Jall says: “O people! be careful of (your duty to) your Lord, Who created you from a single being and created its mate of the same (kind) and spread from these two, many men and women; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship; surely Allah ever watches over you” [Surah 04, an-Nisaa’v:1]. 

He Almighty also says: “It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature.” [Surah 07, al-A’raaf, v:189].

In these verses, mate and mates refer to spouses from the same kind, i.e., humankind.

An unauthentic hadith was reported on the authority of Ibn Abi Ad-Dunya to the effect that it is forbidden to marry the jinn. 

According to Radd Al-Muhtaar ‘ala Ad-Dur Al-Mukhtar by the classical Hanafi jurist Ibn ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah), the fuqahaa (jurists) define marriage as “a contract that makes it lawful for a man to make love to a woman without there being a lawful prohibition to this marriage.” A lawful prohibition here refers to marriage to another man or to a hermaphrodite, a polytheist woman, a closely related woman, or a female jinn.

Ibn ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) states:
“…This concept [of human-Jinn inter-marriage] is a possibility, because their (Jinn) taking various forms [including the human form] is proven by many Hadiths and incidents. This is why it is reported from the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) that he forbade the killing of certain snakes [since it may be a Jinn in the form of a snake]…” (Radd al-Muhtar ala al-Durr al-Mukhtar 3/5) Shape-shifting in other words as we said earlier on.

Muhammad bin Adam from Darul Iftaa, Leicester, UK says:

Contemplating the verses ”Marry women of your choice” [Surah an-Nisaa, v:03] and “And Allah has made wives for you from among yourselves” [Surah an-Nahl, v:72], one can realise that it is only women of human kind that are lawful for men to marry. In addition, a jinn male may take the form of a female and vise versa. 

Also according to Al-Ashbah, a book on juristic rules by Ibn Nujaym, marriage between a human and jinn is not lawful, for they are of different worlds. 

It was said that al-Hasan al-Basri (rahimahullah) was of the opinion that such a marriage is lawful so long as there are witnesses to it. But it was also reported that he did not believe it is lawful. 

Any way, the more correct opinion to follow in this regard is that it is not lawful for a human being to marry a jinni, for they are of different worlds.

From the Shafi’i School, Imam Khatib al-Shirbini (may Allah have mercy on him) states in his Mughni al-Muhtaj:
“Prohibited (i.e. invalid) marriages are of two types: 1) Eternal, and 2) temporary. Of the eternally prohibited marriages is that which takes place between different species. As such, it is not permitted for a male member of the human kind to marry a female Jinni [and vice versa]… Allah Most High says: “He (Allah) is the One who has created you from a single soul, and out of him created his wife, so that he may find comfort in her.” (Surah al-A’raf V 189) and: “O people, fear your Lord who created you from a single soul, and from it created its match, and spread many men and women from the two.” (Surah al-Nisa, V 1) (See: Mughni al-Muhtaj, 3/232)”

Scholars such as al-Hasan Qataada, al-Hukum and Ishaaq were known to have shown a dislike for it. Imaam Maalik could not find any text that would prohibit it but he himself did not like for it to occur and he gave! Imaam Maalik said “I hate that it would be the case that we would find a woman who is pregnant and we ask her, ʻWho is your husbandʼ and she replies ʻOne of the jinn.ʼ Much evil would be the result of that.”
Sulaiman al Ashqar mentions in his book,

A group of people are of the opinion that it is not permitted to marry from the jinn. From the blessings of Allah is that He created for mankind spouses of their own species.

Allah says in the Qur-aan: “And of His signs is this: He created for you mates from yourselves that you might find rest in them, and He ordained between you love and mercy” [Surah ar-Room, v:21].

If it could occur, it would not be possible to have that companionship and love between the spouses due to their different species. The goal and wisdom of marriage would not be attainable since the tranquillity and love mentioned by Allah in the Qur-aan would be impossible. In any case, although people claim that such marriages occur and have occurred in the past, if such does occur, it is rare and strange. Furthermore, the one who performs it must seek the Islamic ruling concerning it. It could be the case that the one who does it is, in a sense, overpowered and has no way to escape that situation.

I second the words of Shaykh Muhammad bin Adam from Darul Iftaa, Leicester, UK..
“In conclusion, human-jinn inter-marriages are possible, but extremely rare. However, they are not permitted according to most early Muslims and classical scholars due to human and Jinns being different species and having different origins – something that would result in the marriage being void of the companionship, comfort, love and mercy mentioned by the Qur-aan, and as such, the wisdom behind marriage would be lost”.
And Allah knows best.

The 7 Spiritual Advices

1. Always show respect to those that are your senior and have mercy to those that are your junior.
2. Make Allah Azzawajal your “bestest” of friends by speaking to Him in your thought processes which makes you live your entire day in Duaa and is a Zikar (rememberance) of Allah Azzawajal.
3. Make certain your Salaah is never made Qadhaa and performed in the Masjid for the menfolk where necessary.
4. Treasure and honour your parents; their care and support will always be for you and not against you. They are human and may make mistakes but what they’ve given you over your many years is the ocean compared to their mistakes which is a pin drop that is insignificant.
5. If you cannot increase the girth of mountains or the span of the earth, do not stamp on this earth with your nose to the sky!
6. Follow the Sunnah (Prophetic teachings) in ALL aspects of your life and recite Bismillah before you do ANYTHING:
7. Never back down when days are dim, lift up your head towards the sky and exclaim: “Oh Rabb! Be mine and be of my assistance.” That tear that trickles down your cheek is the gateway of Allah’s mercy enshrouding you. Be positive, remain positive and march with spiritual confidence towards good, with the creator at your side.

The truth about Taweez [video]

Please be advised that this video is to educate those in doubt about taweez and if they can actually help solve your problems. It is clearly stated in the Quran that ask only from Allah. The glorious Qur’an is the word of Allah. Read it. Recite it. Understand it. Tying it into a little amulet and wearing it on your body isn’t going to do anything. To add further to this, none of these so-called ‘peers’ are advising that ayats of the Qur’an cannot be worn in the bathroom, when engaging in certain acts, when not in a form of purity/wudhu.. Rely not on any amulet or taweez given by a magician to solve your problem, ask directly from Allah and gain knowledge on which ayats contain shi’fah for which illness. Read/recite these as much as you can and remember Allah in your heart.

If still in doubt or if you have anything in your possession which you are not sure about, please bring it down to the Minara Foundation and we will be happy to check it for you in sha Allah and advise you to the best of our knowledge. May Allah protect us all from such evils and guide us towards the righteous path. Ameen.
