Please be aware, there is absolutely NO such thing as exorcism in the Noble Quraan.  For those of you who aren't sure of what exactly 'exorcism' means, it is a primitive practice with mythical concepts of evicting demons or evil spirits which have supposedly 'possessed' a person.  We hear of a lot of medieval and also modern imams talking about forcing evil jinns out of a person's body by beating that person and all that kind of nonsense.  These originate from ancient, pre-Islamic myths and customs with NO compatibility with the truthful contents of the Noble Quraan.  The Quraan only states that Satan's temptations can seem attractive to those who disbelieve or those with a weak iman.  Similarly, those humans and jinns who choose to fall for Satan's temptations can also misguide others who are like them.  But th method to free the minds and hearts of people from the misguidance of Satan and his friends is NOT by beating those people.  Instead, misguided minds should be handled with patience.  They must be invited to follow Allah's guidance and light with recitations and explanations of the Noble Quraan, and by instructing them to recite zikr several times a day with translations so that they understand every word of what they recite.  All original Quraanic recitations that one can remember are very affective to repel the temptations of Satan, provided the recitations are done with sincerity and the thought of Allah.  The most affective and common recitations for protection from evil are Surah Fatiha (first Surah of the Quraan), Ayat-al-Kursi (Verse 2:255), and Surahs Al-Falaq and An-Nas (that is, Surahs 113 and 114).

To follow those obnoxious practices of "beating the evil out of the body" is itself a huge misguidance from Satan, and those so-called spiritualists who carry out such practices are themselves possessed by Satan's temptations by acting in this manner which is totally unwarranted in the Noble Quraan.  Surah Al-Falaq clearly denounces the practice of witchcraft.  Various other Verses of the Noble Quraan flatly reject all superstitious beliefs and practices.  Thus, the concept of jinns (which includes evil jinns) must be understood and interpreted strictly in the light of the information provided in the Noble Quraan without any deviations.  To understand the exact nature of jinn, please read our post Jinn in the Noble Quraan.

May we all seek refuge in Allah (The Highest) from the mischief of Satan the outcast.

"Wa-qul: Rabbi Aaoozu bika min Hamazatis shayateen"  (23:97 - Surah Al-Momin)

Translation --
"And say: My Rab!  I seek refuge in You from suggestions of the evil ones"

The above book (don't know who wrote it), titled "The Jinn and Human Sickness"  is supposed to dispel all such myths with the right analysis and present the existence of the Jinn and their interaction with humans in a truthful way.  But I haven't read this book so I cannot comment on its quality and the correctness of its interpretations. 
People have loved to make folklores on the subject of jinn since long.  Unfortunately it's these make belief ideas that make the subject of jinn of interest them, not the truthful description of jinn as given in the Noble Quran.   For this reason folklores exist in plenty.  Also, numerous superstitious practices based on pure myths have propped up in Muslim cultures concerning protection against evil jinns.  You'll particularly come across many weird notions where, according to the ignorant ones, diseases like epilepsy and various mental health illnesses are thought to be caused by jinns.
I totally agree with sister Zeynab's view.  Jinns are of course very real and they can harm people with temptations.  Whether they can physically harm people through curses and black magics is something not stated in the Quran, so we can't accept it .. even though the practice of magics do exist among people as confirmed in Surah Al-Falaq.  But if you ever feel that you are being stalked or harassed by a jinn (which can happen), the only way to get the jinn off your back is to recite the Quran, read the Quran and follow all Quranic instructions to strengthen your Faith.  This is also the best way to break free from superstitious beliefs and mythical stories that have originated from non-Islamic cultures.

OMG!  This is a terrible superstitious practice.  I wonder how people, over the generations, got this idea into their heads that beating a person can drive out the jinn?  Jinn and humans are two different species, of a kind that they cannot fight physically with each other.  How can't these dummies realize that beating the body of a person means just that.  If a jinn is trying to interfere with someone's life by tempting them or just troubling them, the only way to deal with it is with the help of the Glorious Qur'an.  As simple as that.

Just for information .... to expose how Muslims have introduced superstitious and stupid practices and have thus contaminated our clean way of life with ignorance of the Days of Jahilya, I'm quoting a blog entry I came across recently on exorcism.  The blogger talks about the story of exorcism carried out by the medieval sheik revered by the Sunnis, named Ibn Tayyima.  Apparently the blogger believes in the bullsh*t he has cited.

But let me warn you, the following piece is a true comedy .. and quite a rude one.  By the time you finish reading it, you'll probably be holding your stomach and also grinding your teeth in anger at the sheiks.


I was reading Ibn al-Uthaimeen's explanation of Riyadh us-Saliheen a couple of days ago and he mentions an incident where Ibn Taymiyya was beating some guy who was possessed by a jinn. Now, i've heard so many tales of dodgy maulvees beating kids wrongly when they suspect possession that i thought this beating business had nothing to do with the real rites of Islamic exorcism, but i guess i was wrong.

I mean, if you listen to the jinn stories of uncles and aunts you'd believe there was a jinn hiding behind every rock and tree in Pak waiting to pounce on you!

The incident mentions a man being brought to Ibn Taymiyya suspected being possessed, so the shaikh recited over him without effect. Then Ibn Taymiyya struck the guy on the neck area a number of times until his own hand started to hurt. The Jinn then started speaking saying "i'll come out for your sake and out of respect for you" but Ibn Taymiyya scalded it saying, "do not come out for my sake, but come out obeying Allah and His Messenger!"

(Wow. Now that is ikhlas and keeping your wits about you!)

As soon as Ibn Taymiyya said this, the guy looked at him as if he'd just woken up saying "who brought me here to the shaikh?"  When informed about what had happened, he said that he hadn't felt a single hit landing on his body. And that confirms what i've heard before about real cases where a person was possessed, that the beating actually hurts the jinn and not the human.

We ask Allah for well-being in this life and the next.

I still don't trust most of these people who claim they can exorcise jinns, but i do know of one man who does. And if i were possessed by a jinn, i'd go to him Wink

Any volunteers for listing ways in which you can protect yourself from evil?


To respond to his query as a "volunteer," I copied a portion of sister zeynab's post for their information.

May Allah grant some sense to these retards.

Btw - I don't know to what extent this book that sister cat has mentioned will be acceptable.  I haven't read it either but when they put the title "Quran and Sunnah," it usually contains all information from the Hadith and nothing from the Quran.
