Q. Ibn Baaz the late grand mufti of KSA (Rahimahullah) was asked: “Do we say Bismillah when pouring boiling water in the sink or floor?” He replied: “Yes it’s very necessary to say Bismillah when about to pour a hot water in the sink because there are always Jinns in these areas too”. And Shaikh added: “I happened to be present at a home where ruqya was taking place, and the Shaikh asked the Jinn: “Why are you disturbing this innocent man?” The jinn replied: “He poured a hot water on my little children and killed one.”
The Shaikh replied: “But you know he didn’t see, because we can’t visibly see you.” The jinn said: “Why didn’t he mention Allah’s name “Bismillah? The child would have been aware and would have moved.”
This clearly means, whenever we mention the name of Allah it serves like a signal, it make them aware and they will move away. Make sure you always say “Bismillah” entering your room, putting on your clothes, wearing your shoes, pouring boiled water in sinks or gutters, or even on the floor.”
(End of Ibn Baaz’s narrative)
Please advice if this is correct.
A. It is correct to recite ‘Bismillaah’ when commencing any activity, even when pouring water or boiling water into the sink or onto the floor. While it is possible for jinn to have been present where the Shaikh was doing Ruqyah to exorcise the jinn, it does not follow that there are jinn at all times in the sink. Nevertheless, it is necessary to recite Bismillaah whenever commencing any lawful act.
FROM THE MAJLIS VOLUME 26 NUMBER 02
The following is a brief discussion about pictures on passports, money, school books etc. and how this may or may not affect the angels of mercy from entering one’s house. this answer was given by maulana a.s. desai. h.a.
As far as passport, identity document and other similar necessary documents are concerned, it will not be sinful to have one’s photo taken for these purposes since one has no choice. With regard to the Angels of Rahmat entering houses in which the pictures are concealed, we cannot say with certitude if they will enter homes where the pictures are hidden, not displayed. The malaaikah have a natural aversion for pictures of animate objects, just as we have a natural aversion for a bad odor. If a cat excretes in a hidden corner under the bed where no one can see the mess, the inmates of the house will soon perceive the terrible stench, search for it and clean up the place. In spite of it having been hidden from our sight, our sense of smell detected its presence. The malaaikah walk through solid objects like walls. Physical and solid objects are not a barrier for them. Covering up pictures, does hide them from our sight, not from the malaaikah. It is therefore, our opinion that even if we conceal pictures and even if the books in which the pictures are, are closed, these can prevent entry in to the home of the malaaikah of rahmat. My practice when reading such books is to affix a sticker over the whole head as I go along reading.
The only consolation we can think of is that Allah Ta’ala is Merciful. He will not deprive us of the companionship of the Angels of Mercy because of something which is beyond our control. Passport pictures and the like are beyond our control. Ugly pictures of fussaaq and kuffaar human faces are on all the paper money in our pockets. But we have no alternative other than to carry such evil pictures with us. We therefore hope that Allah Ta’ala Who is the Creator of the Malaaikah will create a method which will make it impossible for the Angels to detect the photos which we hide and which we detest. We believe that as long as we abhor these pictures and exercise care and display our aversion, Allah Ta’ala will not deprive us of the barakat of the Malaaikah of Rahmat.
It has become the practice of this sinful bandah when counting money, never to keep the picture on top or facing me. I turn the notes around if there is a picture only on one side, then count the money so that my soul does not suffer the mental torture of having to stare at something which Allah Ta’ala and His Malaaikah abhor.
Regarding pictures which can be easily destroyed such as the pictures on soap wrappers or on any packets, etc. in which food and other items are enclosed, it is necessary to immediately open up these items and discard the wrappers. A variety of cheap plastic containers and bottles, etc. is available for storing these items.
Regarding the foam mattress with pictures, do understand that your baby is more precious than the bed. It comes in the hadith that shaitaan causes distress to babies. If he happens to be around, he interferes with babies. Therefore, do not take chances with your baby. Covering up the pictures will not suffice. Remove the cover and sew a clean one on to it. This is the safest.
The chemical sulphur and anything having an offensive or pungent odor disturbs and chases away the Angels. I suggest that when lighting a candle, light it in a remote place of the home, outside the bedrooms. Anyhow, the odor of the match will soon disappear. Gas stoves and lighters too pose a problem because even the odor of gas is offensive to Malaaikah. But there is no option. Allah Ta’ala is merciful. Try to avoid such things without imposing too much inconvenience on yourself and your wife. Don’t undertake something which is too difficult to sustain. While pictures are haram, lighting a candle with a match is not haram.
THE DEVIL’S EYE
A Sister whom Allah Ta’ala has saved by extricating her from the shaitaani clutches and traps of the sorcerers conducting ‘therapies’ under Deeni guise such as Body Talk, Aafiyah and the like, writes:
THE PINEAL GLAND & THE THIRD EYE.
When the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency of the U.S.A.) did a study of cults and secret societies they found that ONE THING common among these cults and secret societies from Kabbalah to Hermeticism, Free Masonry to Hellenism and even the deviated sufi cults, is their obsession with activating the Pineal Gland and Opening the third eye.
The third eye (also called the mind’s eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept of a speculative invisible eye, usually depicted as located on the forehead, which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. (Wikipedia)
So HOW does one do this?
I am listing these methods because many of them are trending and being practiced my Muslims. Often promoted by coaches and those in the pop psychology and modern spirituality industry.
- guided meditation
- breath work/ breathing with intention
- opening one’s Chakras
- spinning or shaking
……………………. (End of extracts from her letter)
Iblees has harnessed these ‘therapists’ who are sorcerers and witches, into his conspiracy of converting people, especially Muslims, into Satanists. The immediate villainous consequence of these Body Talk/Aafiyah shaitaaniyat is enmity between husband and wife. The marriage completely breaks down. The Qur’aan Majeed, referring to this speciality of the Satanist sorcerers and witches, says:
“They learnt from the two (Haarut and Maarut) that which caused dissension between a man and his wife………. They learnt only that (i.e. (satanism) which harmed them, and did not benefit them.” (Al-Baqarah, Aayat 103)
Numerous Muslim women have become entrapped by Iblees into the sorcery cults practiced by the sorcerers and witches posing as ‘therapists’. We are aware of many cases of marriages breaking down as a direct consequence of wives having become ensnared in the devil’s tentacles via the agents of Iblees, the cultist ‘therapists’.
After being subjected to satanic brain washing and heart washing, the woman develops an intense hatred for her husband. This hatred is extended to other members of the family who are considered by the trapped woman to be deviates.
Muslims, especially women who have become easy prey for the villainous ‘therapists’, should beware. Do not approach near to these human devils. You will lose your Imaan and your family. Both your dunya and Aakhirah will be ruined by entanglement with the cults of Iblees.
Cults such as Body Talk and Aafiyah are HARAAM. These cults are traps of Iblees, so BEWARE!
8 Rajab 1442 – 20 February 2021
Buraidah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports: “I heard that Mu‘aaz bin Jabal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had captured a Jinn during the lifetime of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I thus went to Mu‘aaz (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and asked him regarding this incident. Mu‘aaz (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated the following to me:
“Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had entrusted the dates of sadaqah to me for safekeeping. Thus, I placed these dates in one of my rooms. However, I would daily find that the dates had decreased. So I went to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and complained to him of the dates decreasing, to which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, ‘It is the work of a Shaitaan. Wait for him in ambush.’
I waited in ambush for this Shaitaan, and after a short portion of the night had elapsed, he appeared in the form of an elephant. When he reached the door, he changed his form and entered through a crack in the door. He then approached the dates and began to swallow them. I firstly checked that my clothing was tightly secured and then confronted and apprehended him saying, ‘I testify that there is no deity besides Allah and that Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is His servant and messenger! O enemy of Allah! You have rushed to take the dates of sadaqah whereas the poor are more deserving of it than you! I am definitely going to take you to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and he will disgrace you!’ When he heard this, he began to plead with me and promised me that he would not return (and I thus released him).
The following morning, I went to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who asked me, ‘What happened to the one you captured?’ I replied, ‘He promised me that he would not return,’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, ‘He will return, so wait for him in ambush.’
I waited for him on the second night and again captured him. He again pleaded and promised that he would not return, and so I again released him. In the morning, I proceeded to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to inform him of what had transpired. However, before I could reach Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), I heard someone calling out, ‘Where is Mu‘aaz?’ When I reached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he asked me, ‘What happened to your prisoner?’ I told Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) what had happened, to which he replied, ‘He will return, so wait for him in ambush.’
I waited for him for a third night. On this occasion, when I apprehended him, I addressed him saying, ‘O enemy of Allah! You have already promised me twice that you will not return! I will now definitely take you to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and he will disgrace you!’ The Shaitaan pleaded, ‘I am a Shaitaan who has dependents and I have come from Naseebeen! If I was able to find some food closer to Naseebeen, I would not have come to you! We used to live in this city of yours (Madeenah Munawwarah). However, after your Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was deputed, there were two verses of your Quraan that were revealed, and these two verses chased us away. We thus went to Naseebeen. If these two verses are recited in any home, no Shaitaaan will enter that home for three days. If you release me, I will teach you these two verses.’ I agreed to release him, after which he said, ‘The two verses are Aayatul Kursi and the concluding verses of Surah Baqarah, commencing from ‘Aamanar Rasulu’ until the end of the surah.’
The following morning, I set out to inform Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) of what had occurred, when I heard someone announce, ‘Where is Mu‘aaz bin Jabal?’ When I entered into the presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he enquired, ‘What happened to your captive?’ I replied, ‘He promised me that he would not return,’ and I also told Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) of the two verses that he had taught me. When he heard this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked, ‘The wretch has spoken the truth, whereas he is normally a liar.’
I would thereafter recite these verses on the dates of sadaqah and would no longer find any decrease in their quantity.” (Tabraani – Majma‘uz Zawaa’id #10920 & Fathul Baari vol. 4, pgs. 614 & 615)
- The Quraan Majeed is a powerful means of protection from Shaitaan, black magic, etc. Hence, regularly reciting the Quraan Majeed within the home is a very effective means of protecting the home from evil forces. Furthermore, there are certain verses in the Quraan Majeed that are especially powerful in gaining protection. Most of these verses have been gathered in a compilation known as the ‘Manzil’ which can be recited daily or more frequently if required. Click ‘here’ to download the Manzil.
- When reciting the verses of protection and du‘aas of protection, it is important for a person to have strong ‘yaqeen’ (conviction and faith) in the power of these verses and their effectiveness. Hence, they should be read with presence of mind and not merely read in an absent-minded manner, as if one is fulfilling a routine.
- The Shayaateen and Jinn are notorious liars, as explained by Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) himself. Hence, the information given by Jinn, even if it be through the medium of an ‘aamil, cannot be trusted and relied on – especially if this information accuses any person of being responsible for the black magic, etc. Sadly, people often accept this information and, as a result, commit the major sin of breaking family ties and accusing people of black magic, whereas they have no proof at all.
