Alhamdu lillah wassalatu wassalamu ‘ala rassool illah.

Djinns and sorcery problems are so widespread and people look for any kinds of solutions. So we will explain in sha Allah what is shirk so Muslims will avoid it and how each one can treat himself and his family by Quran.


We treated once a woman in Dakar, and she came back and said that the jinn was still with her. We asked her if she removed all the djudjus. She said that she removed them all except one, because she was once very ill and she went to a marabout and he gave her this djudju and she recovered her health back. We brought the jinn that was with the djudju and I asked him: “What are you doing with this woman?” He said he received a sacrifice - which is shirk – to give her health, but in exchange, she won’t be able to get married nor to get a job. So first of all it is shirk and secondly if it does any good to you, it will harm you more, as Allah says: “And there were men asking protection from jinns but they harmed them more” (Jinns 6).

We once visited a local king in Africa. He told me that since he became king, he had children born disabled, his wives have mysterious illnesses, doctors operate them and don’t understand the problem. We brought the jinns with him by Allah’s grace and they said: “We are the guardians of the palace! I said: you are the guardians of the palace, and why are these people ill? They said: But we need to be paid!” That means it is the djinns his ancestors allied with to get the power that “feed” on royal family’s health! So the djinns don’t have something to give us. Whatever they will give you: money, job, marriage, exams, elections, etc, they are taking from your right pocket to put in your left one, you are paying it with your health and children etc, and whatever you obtain there will be no happiness in it.

We once received an imam who said he wanted to learn Roqya so we were happy. Then he said he had powerful formulas to cure people, remove jinns from women and other situations; he received them from his forefathers and it is transmitted from generation to generation. But it contains words he does not understand: “Hashtaboosh, kashkoosh, tashtoosh, etc”. I told him we cannot use this, we only treat with Quran. When we say things we don’t understand, we don’t know if it is good or not. He said: “Indeed, Imam Malik said : “wa ma yodrika la’allahu kufr”- you don’t know, it could be kufr, when you say things you don’t understand ». I said: “We will bring in sha Allah the jinns behind these words and we will see what it is about”. They were wild devils – shayateen - and the formula is a satanic pact, as soon as you say it devils comes to accomplish your will. The imam was astonished. He and his ancestors were making kufr without knowing the satanic basis of their methods and thinking they are benefiting from a divine grace. Their good intention and love for the religion, their ignorance of the seriousness of their actions is not an excuse, and people following them are not excused either.

We received a patient who had a ring which was a piece of metal bent like a ring. He said he was given that for luck. We brought the djinns linked to it and they said they are giving him luck in his business but they are taking his health and children. I asked how did the marabout do this ring. They said: “He went to the forest and prayed for us for a week”. I asked: “What kind of prayer?” They said: “The same as you do”. I said: “But what is the difference?” They said: “He prays without ablution. And after that he gives us a sheep and wrappers, then he makes the rings”. So some do satanic things not knowing it is kufr, but others are fully aware they work with Shaytan and do their best to please him. As a conclusion to this first part, there are four things that are shirk and most muslims ignore: djudjus, rings and bracelets for luck and protection, using djinn names in writing, zikr or prayers, and sacrifices for djinns, would it be animals, milk, water or whatever.


Now, Allah says: “We bring down a Quran which is remedy and a mercy for believers” (Al-Isra 82) so we are going to explain how each one can treat himself and his family with Quran. First of all, how do you know you have a sihr and djinn problem? There are four symptoms.

1- Blockages in life: you can’t get a job or keep your money, you can’t get married or have children, you can’t study or pass examinations, whenever people promise to help you they won’t fulfill, if you earn money you cannot get any more until it is finished, etc.

2- Unusual health problem: you have pains or illnesses that doctors can’t understand, examinations are negative and treatments don’t work, like girls falling in schools, cuts that last for years, if you eat sorcery you will have stomach pains, if you walk on sorcery you will have leg pains, etc.

3- Unusual mental states: anger, sadness, fear, forgetting a lot, doubts and confusion; it can go do madness.

4- Nightmares: people or animals chasing you, dogs, bulls, snakes, soldiers, water, climbing, flying or falling, dead people or graves, vehicles and sexual dreams.

If you have these symptoms you understand that someone made sorcery to you to block your life and djinns are often sent with the sorcery. Take a 20 or 25l gallon of water and read on it: Fatiha, Ayat Kursy, Ikhlas, Falaq, Naas, Araaf V117-122, Yunus V81-82 and Ta-Ha V68-70, 11 times each. Once you have done that, that water will remove sihr, djinns and evil eye by Allah’s will. You shall drink from it twice a day and bathe every evening with 1.5 liter: fill a bottle or a kettle and empty it on your body after your shower. You can heat it if you wish. You can bathe in the shower but you have to stand in a big basin to collect the water and throw it outside in a clean place. Repeat this during 12 days. Spray your house with that water: roof, ground, walls, doors and windows; if you have a shop, workplace, vehicles or construction that is not working because of sihr, spray it all it will go in sha Allah.

Reading Quran on water to drink, bathe and spray the house is much more efficient than simply reading or listening to a tape; the difference is like cooling yourself with a fan and cooling yourself under a shower. The verses I mentioned are the fundamentals in ruqya, but you can add many more verses in hadeeths, ruqya books or any verses you want, or read more than 11 times; the more you read the strength of Quran is increasing in the water. So however your problem is difficult, read more and more until the water will overcome it in sha Allah. And if you can’t read all those verses, read more those you can read; this is why anyone can and should use this method.

When you read on the water also put in front of you a bottle of olive or habba sawda oil or shea butter and rub your body with it after bathing: as long as the oil is on your body the Quran will be working on you. Put also some incense to light it and smoke it under your wrapper or your robe after bathing: that will help chase the djinns away from you especially if you are having sexual dreams.

We also use hijama – sucking cups or kafu – specific verses for particular types of sorcery and djinn catching techniques. I particularly invite those engaged in ruqya to discover these methods in my book, my website or my centers; in sha Allah it will help them very much.


Allah has preferred humans on djinns because Allah says: “I am putting a caleef on earth” when djinns were already on earth: so it is the man who is the caleef of Allah and not the djinn. And when Allah created Adam, he asked Iblis to bow to him and did not ask Adam to bow to Iblis. All the prophets Allah sent were only humans, sent for men and djinns. So we will explain in sha Allah that however a djinn attacks you, you can easily beat him and even kill him.

Most often, djinns attack people in dreams: you see militaries, a dog, a bull or anything else attacking you. If you remember in your dream to say: “Bismillah! Allahu akbar!” or read Quran, that will stop him and he will run away. So you must hold him first and then read Ayat Kursi until he is dead; if he dies in the dream, he is really dead. How to remember in your dream to catch him and read? You must prepare yourself before sleeping. After your regular azkar, read many times: “Aynama takunu ya’ti bikum Allahu jamee’an, inna Allaha ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer” (Baqara 148) which means: “Wherever you are, Allah will bring you all, for Allah is Almighty”, and ask Allah to bring you your enemies in your dreams and to give you the strength to beat them. Even if it is someone else having the djinn problem, like your child having nightmares, your wife seeing a man sleeping with here, your mother hearing voices confusing her, you can do the zikr yourself and ask Allah to bring his djinn in your dream, and you will kill him and the person will be relieved. Even if you see the person making sihr to you, just kill him in your dream with your bare hands or a knife or by reading Quran, in sha Allah his evil will return against him.

Some people when sleeping will feel crushed and paralyzed: those are also djinns attacking people. If you feel that first of all catch him. How? Just close your hands, try to tighten your hands with the intention of holding him. Then you start reading in your mind – just leave your tongue as it is blocked: “Allahu la ilaha illa huwa alhayyu lqayyoom…” until your tongue is released. Then you keep reciting loudly and hold tightly your hands until he is dead.

Some people fall, scream, shake and djinns might speak through their mouths: they are possessed by djinns. It occurs more often to women because sihr is mainly a matter of jealousy, harming people without any benefit, and that is mostly amongst women, also because sorcerers use male djinns more than females, and they like women to abuse of them; also because women are more emotional – crying or fearing easily – than men so a djinn in a woman’s body can overtake her easier than a man. So if you see that situation what is to be done? Hold the person, read ayat Kursi near his ear and hit his neck with the edge of your hand gently as if your hand was a sword and you are cutting his head off. After a few minutes, the djinn will feel his head being cut off and will run away and the person will wake up. Then you tell him: “Now we are going to ask Allah to bring him back so we will finish with him; we are not going to let him play with us, every time he will come and every time he will go” and recite Baqara 148 until he is back. When he is back, the situation has reversed: instead of the djinn possessing the man, it is the man possessing the djinn because we have brought him by the will of Allah and the power of Quran; and this time we will read Kursi and hit his neck and he cannot escape, until either he dies either he becomes muslim.


To protect yourselves read Ikhlas, Falaq and Naas three times after subh, after maghrib and before sleeping; Ayat Kursi after each prayer and before sleeping; a’uzu bikalimatillahi tammati min sharri ma khalaq, bismillahi llazi la yadurru ma’a ismihi shay’un fil-ardi wa la fis-sama’i wahuwa ssamee’ al’aleem, three times after subh and maghrib. Say “Bismillah” at five moments: when entering your house, before eating, before removing your clothes, before entering the toilet and before intercourse. In each of these situations there are important duaas of Prophet (s) to learn and recite, but even if you don’t know them at least say “Bismillah” and all those living with you teach them to say “Bismillah” in these moments. Also don’t leave in your house a picture or a statue of something alive - human or animal - exhibited because it is an entry to djinns in the house and angels will run away from the house. Even if it is the photos of your parents, your wedding or your children, put them in an album and don’t let them exposed. Also remember Allah in three situations: anger, sadness and fear, because they are moments of weakness of man where djinns can dominate us. In anger say: “A’uzu billahi mina shaytani rajeem”, in sadness say: “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oon”, in fear say: “Allahumma inna naj’aluka fi nuhurihim wa na’uzu bika min shururihim”. Also say “bismillah” when you pass by water places, especially dirty water or if you throw something in water. Now, if you make any sins, all the protections will go: you cannot disobey Allah and Allah will still protect you. For example, prophet (s) said that if you say “Bismillah, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allah, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah” angels will protect you and devils will go away from you. But if you say that then start looking at women, or if a woman says it but does not cover her body as Islam asks, so the angels will leave and Shaytan will be back with him. So the first and most important of all protections is to leave sins first. In the end, there is nothing you can attach on you or keep with you that will protect you; it is only your deeds and prayers and piousness, as said Rasool Allah (s): “Keep Allah (search for his agreement) and He will keep you; keep Allah and you will find Him with you”.

May Allah guide us His ways and teach us the benefits of Quran.
