Q: I am
a blind man suffering from Jinn (creatures created from fire) coming every night to my house. When I open the Mus-haf (copy of the Qur'an) and put its face down, they go away.
Some people told me that it is not permissible to open the Mus-haf and put it face down. Please, help me!
You should occupy yourself with Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) repeatedly upon going to bed and recite Ayat-ul-Kursy (the Qur’anic verse of the Throne, Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:255), Surah Al-Ikhlas, and Al-Mu`awidhatayn (Surahs Al-Falaq and Al-Nas). You should also seek refuge with Allah's most Perfect Words from the evil of what He created three times in the morning and in the evening and say: "Bismillahil-ladhi la yadurru ma`as-mihi shai'un fil-ardi wa la fis-sama'i, wa Huwas-Sami`ul-`Alim (In the name of Allah, when Whose name is mentioned nothing on Earth or in Heaven can cause harm, and He is the Hearer, the Knower)," (three times in the morning and in the evening). If you do this, you will be safe from the evil of jinn. You should not use the Mus-haf the way you mentioned (Part No. 1; Page No. 292) as this implies offending the Book of Allah and pleasing Satan. May Allah grant you well-being and protect us all from Satan.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
