When answering questions about Ruqyah Magic (Sihr) and Jinn we have always tried to eliminate possible medical and environmental issues. If you are affected by, Jinn please do not be offended but we think this its best to eliminate these as possible factors.

Does Hijama help in cases of Sihr (Magic)?

Magic: Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) mentions that the Messenger (saw) was afflicted with magic and was cupped on the head to treat it. He also mentions that Hijama is from the best of cures for magic if performed correctly (Zaad al Ma'aad).

In cases of Magic (Sihr) and possession many patients go from A to B searching for a cure and invariably they come across the Sunnah of Hijama. Some Raaqi's offer Hijama but do not really know the science of how one affects the other. Likewise, many Hijama therapists offer Hijama as a cure for Sihr Magic but have no clue regarding the correct Sihr and the Hijama required treating it. In the end, many patients feel let down by both sides leaving them feeling disillusioned. Hijama Clinic is unique in that it is one of the very few places in the UK that actually knows how to apply both the knowledge of Ruqyah and Hijama.

Sihr and divorce

The main purpose of the Sihr (magic) taught at Babylon was to separate a man from his wife. In many cases of Sihr, feelings of divorce are all too easily triggered over the most trivial of disagreement between husband and wife. In addition, both partners can acknowledge these feelings but cannot figure out what is going on until they have had Ruqyah performed. A practising Muslim couple should be aware that one of Shaytaans key aims as mentioned in the hadith is to separate a couple. Unfortunately, many practising brothers seem to treat divorce as a small matter and have divorced a number of times not realising the plot of Shaytaan.

The Messenger (saw) said: "Iblees has placed his throne above the water (sea) and then he sends his detachments. The closest of them to him are those who cause the greatest trial. One of them comes back to him and says: I did such and such. Shaytaan replies: You have not done anything. Then another comes to him and says: I did not leave him alone until I caused division between him and his wife." He (saw) said: "So Shaytaan brings him closer to himself and says: You did well". [Saheeh Muslim]

Can a person be assessed for Jinn / Sihr issue just by listening to a Ruqyah MP3?

In some cases, you may get a reaction and we would always advise anyone who thinks they may have an issue to have someone present at least the first time they start listening to a Ruqyah mp3. However, in many cases people do not react to mp3 files and need a person to actually follow the Ruqyah process with them in person before they start reacting. After which a person should try to recite firstly and secondly listen to as much Qur'an as possible.

Can playing Ruqyah mp3 or CD drive away Jinn?

Playing Ruqyah in itself will not do much, the person or persons affected need to actually hear and listen to the Ruqyah. In addition, if a person puts on Ruqyah and then is doing haram like getting drunk but hopes that it will protect them from shaytaan then they are misguided in their thinking. This is why we advise not to treat the Qur'an like a good luck charm.

When I am sleeping, I feel a weight on my body.

This is a common occurrence with many people and is in most cases not Jinn related there are a number of causes for this but the most common is due to the way a person sleeps. If a person sleeps with some kind of weight on their chest for example they have folded their arm across their chest or their partner puts their arm across their chest even if it is seemingly a small amount of weight it restricts the amount of oxygen the person is breathing and it leads to this sudden sensation of something on top of them and they cannot move etc.

I have extreme nightmares is it Jinn?

The most common cause for nightmares is stress, certain foods or medication. If a person is sure that it is not one of these then they can get themselves checked.

I know I am affected by Jinn and am getting depressed.

Firstly, we must know that we should not feel helpless or that our depression is somehow unique to everybody else's. Many non-muslims also go through depression. For some it may be Jinn related and for others it maybe medical. The point is that the non-muslims do not believe in Jinn or Qur'anic healing via Ruqyah yet they still have to cope with the issue. Some battle with depression for years and not all of them resort to medical drugs. There are many strategies designed to manage the condition of depression and we can and should utilise these too as well as Ruqyah.

Life so bad I do not know if I can handle it and I have sinned so much.

This is a typical waswasa that the shaytaan gives and Allah has told us the answer to him. "Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him" [Al-Talaaq 65:7] 
"So keep your duty to Allah and fear Him as much as you can" [Al-Taghaabun 64:16]. Many people lose hope because of the sins they may be committing and feel it may be better if they did not mix with practising Muslims, or perhaps they feel like hypocrites etc. However, the Prophet (saw) said: "The Shaytaan said to the Lord of Glory: 'By Your Glory O Lord, I will keep trying to misguide Your slaves so long as their souls are in their bodies.' The Lord said, 'By My Glory and Majesty, I will continue to forgive them so long as they ask My forgiveness.'" Narrated by Ahmad in al-Musnad.

I am getting bad thoughts (Waswasaa) about Allah and his Messenger (saw) and Islam.

1. Many people suffer from these whispers - there is no power and no strength except with Allah. The difficulties and distress that the believer may suffer as a result of these waswasaa, may be included in the hadeeth of the Prophet (saw), "No Muslim suffers tiredness, exhaustion, worry, grief, annoyance or distress, not even a thorn that pricks him, but Allah will expiate some of his sins thereby." [Bukhaaree 2573]

The Prophet (saw) taught us two important things: 

"To turn to Allah and seek His protection and to beseech Him, for He is the most Generous: And if an evil whisper comes to you from Shaytaan, then seek refuge with Allah." [Al-A'raaf 7:200]

The way to deal with waswaas is to seek refuge with Allah a great deal from the accursed Shaytaan, and especially to recite al-Mi'wadhatayn (the last two Surah’s of the Qur'an), for there is nothing better with which a person may seek refuge with Allah.

In the book of Ibn al-Sunni it is narrated via 'Aa'ishah (ra), "Whoever suffers from this waswaas, let him say 'Aamantu Billaahi wa bi rusulihi (I believe in Allah and in His Messengers), three times.

It is narrated that Uthmaan ibn Abi'l-'Aas said: "The Shaytaan was interfering with my prayer and recitation of Qur'an. He [the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)] said: 'That is a devil called Khanzab, so seek refuge with Allah from him and spit drily to your left three times.' I did that, and Allah took him away from me." [Muslim 2003]

2. To put a stop to this matter and turn away from it and to keep ourselves busy with other useful things.

The companions of the Prophet (saw) came to him complaining about the doubts and waswaas that they were suffering. In Saheeh Muslim, it is narrated that Abu Hurayrah (ra) said: "Some of the companions of the Messenger of Allah (saw) came to him and said, 'We find in our hearts things that none of us dares utter.' He said, 'Do you really find that?' They said, 'Yes.' He said, 'That is clear faith.'" (2/153).

What is meant by saying 'That is clear faith' is that their hatred of that waswasa and their rejecting it was a clear sign of faith?

The Shaytaan only whispers to people of faith; as for the kaafir he comes to him however, he wants and does not limit himself to waswaas, rather he toys with him however, he wishes. Moreover, you should know if the Shaytaan manages to install some doubts in a person's heart concerning Allah and so on, he should not worry about that, because he is only suffering these doubts because of the faith in his heart. The person who is not a believer does not care whether he doubts or not; the one who suffers because of these doubts and whispers is a believer. The Prophet (saw) said, "That is clear faith," (narrated by Muslim, no. 132), meaning that what the Shaytaan casts into your hearts of such matters is a reflection of clear faith, i.e., sincere faith. 

He described it as sincere faith, because the one who experiences these doubts is not happy about them and should not pay any attention to them; they grieve him and he does not want them. The Shaytaan only comes to hearts, which are filled with faith in order to destroy it; he does not come to hearts that are devoid of faith, because they are already ruined. It was said to Ibn 'Abbaas or Ibn Mas'ood that the Jews said, "We do not experience waswaas during our prayers." He said, "Of course, what would the Shaytaan do with a heart that is already ruined!"

Will going to Umrah or Hajj get rid of Jinn?

We see many people take this route Alhamdulillah this is a good thing but as far as a treatment for Jinn related issues or Sihr it is not really a solution as people who live in Makkah and Madina also suffer from Jinn issues and they also have to seek Ruqyah.

Will reciting Surah Baqara clear the house of Jinn?

Alhamdulillah reciting Surah Baqara is a normal procedure to clear a house of Jinn. Also, if you move into a new apartment or house one should always wash it down and recite Surah Baqara for three days as standard practice.

I have recited Surah Baqrah but still hear strange noises in my house and at times feel a strange presence in my room at night?

If all these things are external to a person then once again I would check for stress or medication as a cause but if more than once person is, a witness and you suspect Sihr then firstly search your premises carefully for a taweez / charm. This should be done very slowly and carefully as if you are searching for a hair, as the taweez are very small and can be hidden. The next step in addition to Surah Baqara is to do Adhaan in your house and pray in Jamaat (congregation) for a few weeks and insha Allah all unwanted Jinn will leave.

I have eaten seven Ajawa Dates but still get attacked at night?

Ajawa dates are only a protection from Fajr to Asr as mentioned in the hadith.

I do not have access to Ajawa dates, what else can I do for protection?

The following recitation from the Sunnah is especially for Sihr and will protect a person from Fajr to Asr. Recite 100 times in Arabic upon rising in the morning:

Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'alaa kulli shay'in Qadeer.

"None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise and He is Able to do all things." Al-Bukhari 4/95, Muslim 4/2071.

How do I protect myself from Jinn during the night?

There are various mentioned adhkaar for the evening that will protect until the morning. Reciting Fathiha, ayat al Kursi, the last two ayats of Surah al Baqrah and the three Quls, Ikhlas, Falaq and Nas and blowing on oneself before sleeping will assist.

Some Raaqi's use beating to exorcise a person and say they are hitting the Jinn?

In Jordan, there was an ongoing court case involving a Raaqi (Islamic exorcist) who found a Jinn in the stomach of a woman he was treating (she had eaten Sihr). The Jinn would not leave via medicines or his recitations etc. but beating seemed to have an effect, so they started beating and kicking the woman in the stomach. She screamed and screamed but felt better after the first treatment as it was the Jinn being hurt via the beating. However, when the next session came the same thing happened but whilst the sheikh was hitting her the Jinn jumped out and in the heat of it all he did not notice and unfortunately, she died as a result. Therefore, we would advise anyone to stay well clear of people who use this method.

If someone is affected by, Sihr is it with them for life?

This is not true if the sihr is undone or Jinn extracted or killed, however this kind of statement is usually made by someone who does not know how to treat it and its also fatalistic in its approach and against the hadith - "For every disease there is a cure so if the medicine comes upon the disease it cures it by the will of Allah, the Most High."

I have done Ruqyah but I am not cured?

Not everyone will be cured first time. For most people, it will probably take between 1 to 3 sessions. However, we believe if Ruqyah is done competently then inshallah with the permission of Allah, you should be cured. As you know, treating an illness consists of two parts, diagnosis and treatment. It may be in some cases that either of these components is lacking. It may be that the initial diagnosis may not have been entirely correct, therefore leading a person to actions that did not deliver a cure. Alternatively, it may simply be the treatment needs to be adjusted. It is also worth noting in certain cases the patient maybe doing things contrary to the treatment.

We hear a lot of accusations that magicians do bad things but is it true?

There are many stories we could relate but the following is a link for a couple who got caught red handed http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/8455370.stm

I have so many problems I think it is Magic / Jinn?

Most of the evil affecting humankind the root of it is ignorance and openly disobeying the laws of Allah. Many people whom maybe going through challenging times in their lives try to pick out a scapegoat and therefore blame an outside interference (namely Jinn) for the reasons for their problems when in fact it is their lack of knowledge or lack of guidance for their children that has led to the problems. They then go to false and ignorant so-called Peers, Babas, etc. who speak the language they want to hear and then charge them extremely large fees for the solutions to their problems. Additionally, rightly guided people do not charge for religious knowledge that guides one to Allah.

Music addiction and Jinn related depression.

One of the key signs of possession is that a person is addicted to music and cannot generally go without it for a few days without getting upset.

Many things can contribute to rapid state changes in a person such as certain foods, drugs etc. and most people are careful of them. However, music which is an external stimulus that can cause a person to experience emotional highs and lows. Moreover, when it is withdrawn it can cause them to crash and this is often ignored and overlooked.

For Jinn to have an adverse influence over a praying Muslim is normally difficult. However, if Shaytaan can change a person's state or feeling rapidly from slow to fast or high to low etc., the person has less control over his mind and his body and Shaytaans influence increases. A simple example is alcohol. When a person drinks alcohol, their state is changed and it makes it easier for that person to commit haraam whereas normally they might not have even considered it. Similarly, music has the effect of rapidly changing a person’s state. Some people may claim listening to music makes them feel happy. 

This may seem true but there are other types of music capable of producing different states and emotions in a person. Such as blues music, this can change a person’s, state to sad. Rap music can change a person’s state to aggressive etc. Therefore, what we would like to emphasize is not the actual emotion itself but the fact that music is capable of changing a person’s state and changing it rapidly. 

Very few people can listen to music in a detached manner. In addition, if they could, what would be the point, as they would not 'enjoy' it? A changing of state is just the beginning for some people. It affects them to the point that they become in a 'trance' with it and the early sign of trance is moving their body hypnotically to it without realising and repeating the words. Therefore, someone who is having state change issues such as bipolar depression (i.e. swinging feelings of high and low) - the last thing they need is something that contributes to such state changes.

In terms of Ruqyah and Jinn, we know from experience that many people get affected by Jinn when in trance like states. In fact, most magicians, before they try to do magic on a person, try to put them in to trance like states. In terms of music, you can see at concerts and in so called Qawaali session's, people going into trances, getting up dancing and then collapsing.

To this point, we have not mentioned anything in regards to music being halaal or haraam just what I hope any logical individual would agree with. However, I will mention now that perhaps we should take note that music is often accompanied by words and those words generally do not speak of Allah. Therefore, a person repeats those words and the Angels write them down. Therefore, Shaytaan gets a double victory here by firstly stopping us from saying the words of Allah i.e. we should be reciting as much Qur'an as we can or doing the Dhikr of Allah. Secondly by us now doing the Dhikr of useless stuff, which may actually be sinful.

Therefore, we advise anyone afflicted with music addiction to replace it with Dhikr, for this is the greatest thing that may protect a person.

In the hadith, it says that Allah commanded Yahya (as) to enjoin five things upon the Children of Israel, one of which was: "I command you to remember Allah, for this is like a man who is being pursued by the enemy, then he comes to a strong fortress and saves himself from them. Similarly, a man cannot save himself from his enemy except by means of dhikr." [Al-Waabil al-Sayyib, 60.]

How can I tell if it is Sihr or mental illness?

It is difficult to determine if a person is affected by Jinn or has mental health issues as so many of the symptoms are similar in nature: for example, both may be suffering from nightmares and epilepsy. The key distinguishing feature between medical illnesses and those caused by Sihr is that when the Qur'an is recited over the ill person by a competent Raaqi (one who knows the Ruqyah process) the affected will react in a very clear manner that will confirm if it is Jinn related or not.


Qur’anic Taweez treated like a good luck charm.

Many people are under the impression that the taweez they wear contains verses of the Quran and so will protect them from "evil spirits". Although most of the taweez's we have seen tend to be from the sources of Jewish magic, i.e. numbers and charts mixed with Qur'an. Even so if we were to accept that someone is wearing a Qur'anic taweez, we find the Muslims are treating this just as the non-Muslims treat a good luck charm. They wear Qur'an around their neck when they go to the toilet. This should make any straight-thinking person think twice about wearing Qur'anic verses. We also see people who don't do the basic daily prayers and who go to night clubs, etc. all with this Qur'anic taweez around their neck even whilst doing zina. Yet somehow, these people think that a taweez that the peers saab gave them will protect them or their children from evil. As if going clubbing etc. is not evil. Some Muslims even grab onto their taweez whilst in the casino hoping to win. We hope we have clarified for you that the concept of taweez is nothing different to a good luck charm, the correct approach is to recite the dua's the way the Prophet (saw) taught us, for protection and what could be more powerful than the dua the Prophet (saw) taught his ummah?

Fake Taweez

In most cases what is sold or given by so called baba's / peers etc. is nothing more than a piece of paper with a few ayats and perhaps some numbers and charts. Anyone could write one and nothing would occur, as you need to be in touch with the Jinn for them to have any effect. A few cheap magicians are in touch with the shayateen / Jinn and can do a few tricks. Such as telling you a few personal details about yourself, to make you he must be pious. This trick in terms of magic / sihr is one of the most basic ones and many baby magicians can do this. They use this trick to gain a person’s confidence and sell them a taweez’s, which is likely to be useless. It should be noted that accomplished magicians are far and few and the taweez they issue does nothing of the sort in protecting a person, which is what most people think. Rather it is beacon for the assigned Jinn and an instruction set.

Can Taweez protect from Magic?

There are a number of hadith of the Prophet (saw) relating to the wearing of talismans and amulets etc. and the fact that he (saw) did not like is, so in the interest of not displeasing our beloved Prophet (saw) we advise Muslims not to wear such things. Also, we point out from the first Prophet Adam as to the last Prophet Muhammad (saw) not a single prophet ever wore a taweez or taught anyone of their companions to make one. In fact, even when Moses as was sent to pharaoh and fought the best magicians known to humanity he was not ordered to wear a taweez.

Can Taweez be worn for small children to protect them?

Even when his mother put Moses as a small baby into the river, no one advised to put a taweez around his neck to protect him from drowning or cold water or any bad luck as such. Ibrahim as did not put a taweez around the neck of Ismael or Isaac...Nor did Yaqub as around the neck of Yusuf as despite his beauty to protect him from nazar or ayn, or to protect him from the jealousy of his brothers. Finally, our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) the saviour of humanity and a mercy to all the worlds did not put a taweez on the necks of any of his children nor his grandchildren Hasan and Hussain. This is what is known from the Anbiya the prophets who delivered Islam to the people, as for the statements by certain scholars in later generations. You can make your own mind up.

I have some taweez how I should destroy them?

As you open the taweez, recite Surah’s Falaq and Nas and blow on it at each stage of opening. If the taweez is paper with no Qur’an, you can simply burn it, if it has Qur'an then dissolve in water and throw in garden etc. If you find a small string, with knots in it then recite the Surah’s Falaq and Nas and try to open them one by one. If you cannot open the knots, then cut the knots whilst reciting and blowing on them, and then dispose of in the bin.

I have been advised to recite a Surah or just the names of Allah X amount of times.

On the face of it, this type of thing appears fine but one should be careful that these people then start advising to recite the names of Allah 100,000 times and Surah’s Falaq and Nas 70,000 times etc. Beware this is usually the first sign of the innovators as no one would be able to complete the tasks they state in one go. Then you would have to refer back to them and sure enough, you would be informed of some pious Sheikh or Pir etc. person who can achieve this feat and of course will charge you for the privilege. These people are often obsessed with numbers and these numbers tend to be all over their literature as if it the number that is going to give the shifaa. Below is some logical evidence with numbers even if you were to attempt to try to do such a thing.

1 hour = 60 mins and 1 Min = 60 Seconds so 60x60 = 3600 sec's per hour. 

If we say, you could recite both surah’s Falaq and Nas in 2 seconds, which is totally unjust to the Surah’s but for arguments sake. So, 3600/2 = 1800 A person would only be able to recite them 1800 times in one hour. Moreover, if we said they had a night of 10 hours it would still only amount to 18,000 times. Still 62,000 shorts of the innovators requirement. As you can see this is impossible. May Allah protect us from Shaytaans suggestions dressed as piety and keep us firmly upon the true piety of the Sunnah.

Calling upon the Names of Allah.

Some people advice that you should say Ya Rahmaan or Ya Raheem or Ya Jabaar etc. 100 times or 200 times each, for x cures or ailment.

If you download any Ruqyah from this website you find that many of the reciters call upon Allah (swt) using his beautiful names also if you have ever watched an imaam in taraweeh making dua in Makkah you will find they also call upon Allah's names but as you will find they say Allah's name then ask for forgiveness or health or whatever.

However, imagine if you say Oh Allah (swt) 10 times then another name it gets ridiculous because you are actually calling Allah by his name or names but then not saying anything. As someone may say ya Allah ya Allah ya Rahmaan etc. then say forgive me - it makes sense. However, if I say ya Allah then say ya Allah and I just keep saying it, it does not make sense.

Perhaps a simpler way to look at this or any worship for that matter is that if I suggested you pray with one leg in the air and one hand in the air you would say no I hope! Or at least ask me for some evidence from the Sunnah. Although there is nothing wrong with praying in itself and I am telling you that you should pray this way 20 times a day but you recognise that nobody actually prayed the way I am suggesting. Therefore, in the same way these people although they are using the names of Allah (swt), no one from the Prophet (saw) to the companions ever used the names of Allah (swt) in this way. Below is a narration where the companions did use the name of Allah (swt), I hope it clarifies matters.

One of the treatments prescribed in Islam is to recite the dua's narrated from the Prophet (saw), to relieve worries and distress. For example, the saheeh hadith narrated from Ibn Masood (ra): "There is no-one who is afflicted by distress and grief and says:

'Allaahumma inni 'abduka ibn 'abdika ibn amatija naasyati bi yadika, maada fiyya hukmuka, 'adlun fiyya qadaa'uka. As'aluka bi kulli ismin huwa laka sammayta bihi nafsaka aw anzaltahu fi kitaabika aw 'allamtahu ahadan min khalqika aw ista'tharta bihi fi 'ilm il-ghayb 'indaka an taj'al al-Qur'aana al-'Azeema rabee' qalbi wa noor sadri wa jalaa' huzni wa dhihaab hammi. 
(O Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your slave, son of Your maidservant; my forelock is in Your hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every NAME belonging to You which You have named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You, that You make the Holy Qur'an the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety),' but Allah will take away his distress and grief."
