How can we protect ourselves from the harm of the jinn?

How can we protect ourselves from the harm of the jinn?
I am having a problem with Jinn. I hve been able to perceive Jinn in diferent ways all my life. I never seemed to be bothered by this until recently. I saw a Jinn in our apartment in the first days we moved in. Off and on I would pick up on a little activity from this jinn or even jinns like doors opening by themselves· seeing it· hearing them ect... However· things seem to be changing a lot. Now something is happening everyday and things which are making me uncomfortable in my home to the point where I do not want to live here anymore. The Jinn(s) open doors· shout my name startling me out of sleep· knock over objects· appear as a cat· are messing with my computer and phones· I see it's shadows and even more. It is very freaky. I am really not sure what to do about this proble. I am hoping moving out of this house will help the situation...? But in the mean time I have tried to recite Al-Baqarah· Al-Iklas· Al-Falaq· An Nas and even play a recording of the recitation in my house. The activity stops when I do so but as soon as I stop the recording the Jinn makes it presence known in some way or other (most of the time). Sometimes· my recording will be shut off and my cmputer reset in the middle of the recitation...which apparently has happened too many times. Jinn even appear to me in dreams very often. I do not know how to end this situation but I wouls seriously appreciste answers or suggestions soon.


unless  he is a Prophet.”

(Ahkaam al-Qur’aan,
2/195, 196)

 Ibn Hazm

 “The jinn
are real, and they are creatures created by Allaah. Among them are kaafirs
and believers. They can see us but we cannot see them. They eat, have
children and die. Allaah says (interpretation of the meanings): 

‘O you assembly of jinn and Mankind!’
[al-An’aam 6:130]

 ‘And the jinn, We created aforetime
from the smokeless flame of fire’ [al-Hijr 15:27]

 ‘”And of us some are Muslims (who
have submitted to Allaah, after listening to this Qur’aan), and of us
some are Al‑Qaasitoon (disbelievers those who have deviated from
the Right Path)’. And whosoever has embraced Islam (i.e. has become
a Muslim by submitting to Allaah), then such have sought the Right Path.

And as for the Qaasitoon (disbelievers who deviated
from the Right Path), they shall be firewood for Hell”’[al-Jinn 72:14-15] 

‘Verily, he and Qabeeluhu (his soldiers
from the jinn or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them’[al-A’raaf

  ‘Will you then take him (Iblees)
and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me’[al-Kahf

‘Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will
perish’[al-Rahmaan 55:26] 

‘Everyone shall taste death’[Aal ‘Imraan


 Hence what
the questioner has seen may be just her imagination or an illusion,
or it may be jinn appearing in a form other than that with which Allaah
has created them. 


With regard to the jinn
harming humans, this is proven to happen and it does happen. Protection
against that is attained by reciting Qur’aan and adhkaar (dhikr) prescribed
in sharee’ah. 

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen
(may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 

the jinn can have a harmful effect on humans, and they could even kill
them. They may harm a person by throwing stones at him, or by trying
to terrify him, and other things that are proven in the Sunnah or indicated
by real events. It was reported that the Messenger
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave permission to one of
his Companions to go to his wife during one of the military campaigns
– I think it was the campaign of al-Khandaq – as he was a young man
who had recently got married. When he reached his house, he found his
wife standing at the door, and he objected to that. She said to him,
‘Go inside,’ so he went inside and found a snake curled up on the bed.
He had a spear with him, so he stabbed it with the spear until it died,
and at the same instant as the snake died the man also died. It was
not known which of them died first, the snake or the man. When the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) heard of that, he forbade killing the harmless kinds of
snakes that are found in houses, apart from those which are maimed or
are streaked and malignant. 

This indicates
that the jinn may attack humans, and that they may harm them, as is
known from real-life events. There are numerous reports which indicate
that a man may come to a deserted area, and a stone may be thrown at
him, but he does not see anybody, or he may hear voices or a rustling
sound like the rustling of trees, and other things that may make him
feel distressed and scared. A jinn may also enter the body of a human,
either because of love or with the intention of harming him, or for
some other reason. This is indicated in the aayah (interpretation
of the meaning): 

‘Those who eat Ribaa will not stand (on
the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten
by Shaytaan (Satan) leading him to insanity’[al-Baqarah 2:275]

In such cases, the jinn may speak
from inside of that person and address the one who is reading verses
from the Qur’aan over him; the reciter may take a promise from the jinn
never to come back, and other things concerning which there are very
many reports which are widespread among the people. 

the protection which will prevent the evil of the jinn is for a person
to recite that which is narrated in the Sunnah as being effective in
providing protection, such as Aayat al-Kurisy,
for if a person recites Aayat al-Kursiy
at night, he will continue to have protection from Allaah, and no shaytaan
will come near him until morning. And Allaah is the Protector.’”

Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 1/287-288) 

Sunnah mentions adhkhaar (dhikr)
by means of which one may gain protection from the shayaateen
(devils). These include: 

refuge with Allaah from the jinn: 

says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And if an evil whisper from Shaytaan
(Satan) tries to turn you away (O Muhammad) (from doing good), then
seek refuge in Allaah. Verily, He is the All Hearer, the All Knower”[Fussilat

 “And if an evil whisper comes to
you from Shaytaan (Satan), then seek refuge with Allaah. Verily, He
is All-Hearer, All-Knower”

[al-A’raaf 7:200] 

was narrated from Sulaymaan ibn Sard that two men were trading insults
in the presence of the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them), until the face of one
of them turned red. The Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “I know a word which,
if he were to say it, what he is suffering from would go away: ‘A’oodhu
Billaahi min al-Shaytaan il-rajeem (I
seek refuge with Allaah from the accursed Shaytaan).’”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari,
3108; Muslim, 2610) 

– Reciting al-Mi’wadhatayn (the
last two Soorahs of the Qur’aan, al-Falaq
and al-Naas). 

was narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him)
said: “The Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge with
Allaah from the jinn and from the evil eye until the Mi’wadhatayn were
revealed, and when they were revealed he started to recite them and
not anything else.”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi,
2058; he said it is hasan ghareeb. Also narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 5494;
Ibn Maajah, 3511. The hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani (may
Allaah have mercy on him) in Saheeh al-Jaami’,

– Reciting Aayat al-Kursiy

was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: “The Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) put me in charge of guarding
the zakaah of Ramadaan. Someone came to me and started grabbing handfuls
of the food. I took hold of him and said, ‘I will take you to the Messenger
of Allaah (peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him).’ He said, ‘I will teach you some words by means
of which Allaah will benefit you.’ I said, ‘What are they?’ He said,
‘When you go to your bed, recite this aayah
(interpretation of the meaning): “Allaah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa
(none has the right to be worshipped but He), Al-Hayyul-Qayyoom (the
Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists)…” [al-Baqarah
2:255] – until he completed the aayah.
Then Allaah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and
no shaytaan (devil) will come near you until morning.’ The Messenger
of Allaah (peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him) asked me, ‘What did your prisoner do last night?’
I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, he taught me something, and claimed
that Allaah would benefit me by it.’ He said, ‘What was it?’ I said,
‘He taught me to recite Aayat al-Kursiy
when I go to bed, and said that no shaytaan would come near me until
morning, and that Allaah would appoint a guard for me who would stay
with me.’ The Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘He told you the truth, although
he is an inveterate liar. That was the Shaytaan.’”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari,

4 – Reciting Soorat al-Baqarah

was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not make your
houses like graves, for the Shaytaan runs away from a house in which
Soorat al-Baqarah is recited.”(Narrated by Muslim,

– The last verses of Soorat al-Baqarah

was narrated that Abu Mas’ood al-Ansaari said: “The Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) said: ‘Whoever recites the last two verses of Soorat
al-Baqarah at night, that will suffice
him.’” (Narrated
by al-Bukhaari, 4723; Muslim, 807)

was narrated from al-Nu’maan ibn Basheer (may Allaah be pleased with
him) that the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah inscribed a book two
thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, from which
the last two aayahs of Soorat
al-Baqarah were revealed. If they are
recited for three nights, no shaytaan (devil)will remain in the house).

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi,
2882. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh
al-Jaami’, 1799).

– Reciting “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk
wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer
(There is no god except Allaah Alone with no partner or associate; His
is the Sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things)”
one hundred times. 

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger
of Allaah (peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him)  said: “Whoever says “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah
wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli
shay’in qadeer” one hundred times in
the day, will have a reward equivalent to that of freeing ten slaves,
one hundred hasanahs (good deeds) will be recorded for him, and one
hundred sayi’ahs (bad deeds) will be erased from his record, and it
will be protection for him from the Shaytaan for that day, until evening
comes. No one could achieve any better than him except the one who does
more than he did.”

(narrated by al-Bukhaari,
31119; Muslim, 2691) 

– Remembering Allaah often (dhikr) 

was narrated from al-Haarith al-Ash’ari that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah commanded
Yahyaa ibn Zakariyah (peace be upon him) five things to follow and to
enjoin upon the Children of Israel… and he commanded them to remember
Allaah, and the likeness of that is a man who was being pursued by the
enemy, until he reached a strong fortress in which he found protection;
similarly a man cannot find protection from the Shaytaan except by remembering

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi,
2863; he said it is hasan saheeh. The hadeeth was classed as saheeh
by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’,

– The adhaan 

was narrated that Suhayl ibn Abi Saalih said: “My father sent me to
Bani Haarithah, and there was with me a slave of ours, or a companion
of ours. Someone called out his name from a garden, and the one who
was with me looked into the garden and did not see anything. I mentioned
that to my father, and he said, ‘If I had known that this was going
to happen to you, I would not have sent you. But if you hear a voice
then make the call for prayer, for I heard Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah
be pleased with him) narrating that the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When the Shaytaan
hears the call to prayer, he runs away fast.”’”(Narrated by Muslim,

word translated here as “runs away fast” may also mean “farting.” 

– Reciting Qur’aan offers protection against the Shaytaan 

says (interpretation of the meaning): 

when you (Muhammad) recite the Qur’aan, We put between you and those
who believe not in the Hereafter, an invisible veil (or screen their
hearts, so they hear or understand it not)[al-Israa’ 17:45] 

And Allaah knows best.
