My Rabb (The reality of the Names comprising my essence)! Satan (the internal mechanism (ego) that promotes the illusory existence of the inexistent and veils the Absolute Reality) is distressing and tormenting me. My Rabb, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of Satan, and I seek refuge in You from the presence of Satanic influences around me. And You have provided protection from all rejected Satans.
This prayer is especially recommended as protection against satanic and jinni influences. When these two verses are read together they provide an ultimate protection against the harmful influences of the jinn. The 41st verse of chapter Sad was recited by Job (as) and the 97th and 98th verses of chapter al-Muminun were taught by Allah to Muhammad (saw).
The 7th verse of chapter as-Saffat is claimed to provide protection against jinn-related provocations. Anyone who may be prone to such negative influences should definitely recite these verses to be protected against them.
Psychics, and those who claim they are in contact with spirits, aliens or who think they are saints, sheiks or the Mahdi, should definitely recite these verses for some time; they will probably see that their abovementioned beliefs and assumptions will dissolve in a short time.
There are a few ways for this prayer to be effective…
1. The subject should read this prayer 200 or 300 times every morning and night until such effects are dissolved. It is also highly recommended that the person keeps a jug of water nearby while reciting, then blows into the water once the prayer is complete and drinks the water throughout the day.
2. A few trustworthy people should come together and recite this prayer 300 times each. They should also keep a jug of water and blow the prayer both onto the person and the water, and make the person drink the water. It is advisable for the person to also read these verses.
3. The person should read chapters Falaq and Nas 41 times every morning and night.
If all of these are done at the same time, the effect will be greater and results will be reached quicker.
Let me add, however, both the Ayat al-Qursi and the chapters Falaq and Nas are for passive protection. They are formulas that strengthen the person’s brainpower and spirit, and form a protective magnetic field around the person.
The verses I provided above, on the other hand, are active formulas. When the person continues reciting them, their brain emanates such powerful frequencies that, like a laser gun, the jinn are disturbed by it and feel they must stay away.
Though I have provided detailed information about this topic in Spirit, Man, Jinn, I would like to share the following information here also:
When those who are under the influence of the jinn begin to recite these verses, they will at first feel great discomfort, in fact, they will be disturbed even if they don’t read it themselves, but people around them read it. This is due to the jinn that have possessed them without their conscious choice, who are greatly discomforted by the waves produced by these verses, and their need to distance themselves and hence take the person with them.
Fever, hot flashes or sweaty hands may follow this feeling of discomfort. This is all due to the adrenalin secretion into the blood because of the jinn.
If the person can keep strong and resist all of this and continue to recite the verses, in only a few days time the majority of such effects will greatly diminish and he will begin to feel comforted. It’s all up to the person’s strength of will and ability to remain strong and fearless.
In my view, there is no need to incur unnecessary expenses by going to sheikhs or hodjas! The person himself or a group of his friends whom he trusts can easily apply this formula and cure themselves.
May Allah increase our awareness in this field and protect us from becoming subjects of the jinn.
لٓا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ
Laa ilaaha illaa anta subḥaanaka innee kuntu mina l-ẓaalimeen
There is no deity-god (there is no ‘me’) only You (the Names comprising my essential reality)! I glorify You (through my function that manifests Your Names)! Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.
The Rasul of Allah (saw) says:
“When Jonah (as) was in the belly of the fish he prayed, ‘LAA ILAAHA ILLAA ANTA SUBHAANAKA INNEE KUNTU MINA L-ZAALIMEEN’. There is no Muslim who makes this prayer in regards to a situation and Allah does not accept his prayer.”
As mentioned in the Quran, in the 87th verse of chapter al-Anbiya, Jonah (as) was forgiven for a mistake he had made after continually making this prayer. Then he reached a state where he guided a community of over 100 thousand people to the right path.
Anyone who feels like Jonah, entrapped in the belly of this world, should read this prayer for relief and deliverance.
Reciting this prayer 300 times a day, which is a part of the formula I will provide in the following chapters, yields enormous benefits. Definitely continue doing so!
رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي
Rabbi ishraḥ lee ṣadree wa yassir lee amree
My Rabb, expand my consciousness (so that I may digest these and apply their requisites). Ease my task for me.
This is a part of Moses’ (as) prayer. It has been seen that repeating it 300 times a day lifts grief away, enables assimilation and facilitates things to run smoothly in one’s life.
When 300 repetitions of the verse ‘Alam nashrah laka sadrak’ is also added to this the effect is amplified and results are seen quicker.
Anyone who complains of inner distress, introversiveness, restlessness or depression should also add 1,800 repetitions of the name Basit.
