Q 5: Is there any authentic Du`a' (supplication)
reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) regarding people who suffer from devilish whisperings, obsessions, and impatience?
Such people should mention Allah frequently and seek refuge with Him from Satan.
and others narrated on the authority of
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
Satan comes to one of you and says, 'Who created so-and-so? 'till he says, 'Who has created your Lord?' So, when he inspires such a question, one should seek refuge with Allah and give up such thoughts.
version narrated by
"So, when he inspires such a question, say: 'I truly believe in Allah'".
Muslim also narrated
on the authority of
`Uthman ibn Abu Al-`As (may Allah be pleased with him) who went to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said:
O Messenger of Allah, Satan confounds my prayer. He (peace be upon him) said: That is a devil called Khanzab. When you feel his illusory acts, spit thrice at your left and seek refuge with Allah from the devil thrice. `Uthman said: When I did that, Allah dispelled from me what I felt.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
