What If You Can’t Find Any Local Raqi and Have Sihr and Jinn Possession?

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel


Nothing has worked out for us after months of my jinn possession and my family being affected by Sihr. We don’t even have any local Raqi or anyone to assist us. I’ve recently been unable to sleep until Fajr, which has made me sick.

We’ve seen the symptoms and confirmed that it’s Sihr, but we can’t do anything about it. I tried to listen to Ruqya online. I did it for months, but it didn’t help much; we couldn’t travel to seek treatment because of the financial crisis; what should I do?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate.

I pray you are in good faith and health. I am sad to hear about your family situation.

First and foremost, I advise you and your family to continue performing the five daily prayers, remembrances (dhikr), and litanies (awrad) and avoid all kinds of major and minor sins.

I would advise you to do the following.

  • First, continue to find a local, or even nationally, Raqi (reliable spiritual healer);
  • After doing the daily recital of the Quran, remembrance, and litanies, puff the recitation in your palm and wipe it all over your body;
  • Continue seeking protection and recite Surat al-Fatiha, ayat al-Kursi, Surat al-Kafirun, al-Ikhlas, al-Falaq, and al-Nas after every prayer, and if you are not praying, then the following as much as you can throughout the day.
  • Read, listen, and play the Manzil verses. Many people, learned and others, have found many benefits in the recital of the manzil. These are powerful suras and verses of the Quran that will work to remove the satanic whisperings, and effects of any kind of Jinn possession and magic, in sha Allah
  • If possible, read Surat al-Baqara aloud as it has an effect of removing any kind of ill effects, including magic

All this has to be done with meaning after reciting each, hoping and asking Allah Most High for its removal, help, and ease of normality in one’s life.

Recite Surat al-Baqara and Surat al-Imran – Two Blessed Chapters

Abu Umama (Allah be pleased with him) reported the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Recite the Quran, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for its reciters. Recite the two brightly illuminated chapters, Surat al-Baqarah and Ali Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds, or two shades, or two flocks of birds pleading for their companions. Recite Surat al-Baqara as there is blessing in it, there is sorrow in leaving it, and the sorcerers cannot defeat it.” [Muslim]

Verse of the Throne for Protection from Satan, Jinns, and Magic

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported, the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) entrusted me to protect the charity of Ramadan. Someone came to me and began taking from the food. I took hold of him and I said, “I will certainly take you to the Messenger of Allah!” Abu Huraira told the story to the Prophet and he said, “The man told me that when I go to bed, I should recite the verse of the throne. Allah would appoint a protector with me and no devil would come near to me until morning.” The Prophet said, “He told you the truth, although he is a liar. That was Satan.” [Bukhari]

Best Two Chapters for Seeking Refuge in Allah

Ibn ‘Abis al-Juhani (Allah be pleased with him)reported the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to him, “O Ibn ‘Abis, shall I not tell you about the best way to seek refuge for those who seek it?” He said, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “These two chapters: Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of the daybreak (Quran, 113:1) and, Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of the people (Quran, 114:1).” [Nasa’i]
