10 Ways of Protection from Shaytan

Imam Ibn ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah

    1. Seeking refuge with Allah from Shaytan. Allah the Most High said, “And if there comes to you from Satan an evil suggestion, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.” [41:36]


    1. Recitation of the two soorahs al-Falaq and an-Nas, as they have wondrous effect in seeking refuge with Allah from his evil, weakening Shaytan and protection from him. This is why the Messenger, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, said: “No person seeks refuge with anything like the Mu`awwidhatayn (soorahs al-Falaq and an-Nas)”. [an-Nasaa’i, 5337]


    1. Recitation of Ayat al-Kursi (2:255).


    1. Recitation of soorah al-Baqarah. The Messenger, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, said, “The house in which al-Baqarah is recited is not approached by Shaytan.” [Muslim]


    1. The final part of al-Baqarah. The Messenger, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, said, “Whoever recites the two last verses of al-Baqarah at night they will suffice him.” [Muslim]


    1. Recitation of the beginning of soorah Mu’min (Ghafir), until His saying, “wa ilayhi-l-maseer” (to Him is the destination). (i.e. “Ha. Meem. The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Knowing, the forgiver of sin, acceptor of repentance, severe in punishment, owner of abundance. There is no deity except Him; to Him is the destination.” [40:1-2])


    1. Saying “la ilaha ill Allah wahdahu la sharika lah, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa `ala kulli shay’in qadir” (there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah, He has no partner, His is the Dominion and Praise, and He is able to do all things) a hundred times.


    1. The most beneficial form of protection from Shaytan: abundance of remembrance of Allah, the Exalted.


    1. Ablution and prayer, and they are from among the greatest means of protection, especially at the time of emergence of anger and desire.


  1. Abstinence from excess speech, food and mixing with people.

  6. @ MJ:

    Now during the month of Ramadan, we know that we should not be listening to music as it is a pure waste of time which will not make us reap any rewards…

    So if we get the thought, "its k, listen to music, there is nothing wrong in it, just for few minutes.. etc, etc." this is a whispering from Satan.

    This is just a simple example.

    So on a daily basis we get these whisperings from satan. We know from our inner self that we should not be doing something, but Satan makes that action of ours seem not a BIG DEAL! 🙂

    At such situations we should be saying Aaozo billahi minashaitanirajeem…

    I hope you got that point, if not please let me know:)

    Dear Brother,

    point no. 5
    5.The final part of al-Baqarah. The Messenger, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, said, “Whoever recites the two last verses of al-Baqarah at night they will suffice him.” [Muslim]

    means that If you recite the last two ayaah will suffice him (as if has has done ebada the whole night)

    please comment if i understood it correctly.

  8. @ Brother Imtiyaz

    The Hadith means, if you recite the last two ayats of Surah Baqarah it is enough to protect us during the night.
