Q 1: Are there any authentic Hadiths regarding exorcising Jinn (creatures created from fire)? What is the ruling on
seeking the help of the Jinn to do permissible things?
Is whatever transmitted from
(may Allah be merciful to him) regarding this issue true? May Allah reward you with the best!
We do not know any Hadith that the Prophet (peace be upon him) exorcised Jinn. However, a sick person should seek treatment by the Qur'an and Ruqyah (reciting Qur'an and saying supplications over the sick seeking healing) as the Salaf (righteous predecessors) used to do. It is not permissible to seek the help of the Jinn or the non-present people as this is an act of Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship). Moreover, there is nothing transmitted from
Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah regarding the permissibility of such a thing.
