Fatwa No: 375556

Question

A’alaykum. I have a typical question but it is unbelievable. Sorry for these kind of question. My Elder Son (name-Mohammed Abdur Rasheed) is 25 years old. My Son is not growing up, not good in studies and he was getting sick day by day. As advised my somebody, we have visited one place to show my Son. ‘Hazat’ has described the events as follows,1) My Son is in possession of both Pari (female) and Snake (Jinn) Black color long with yellow marks who is safeguarding big Treasure in my Father’s Village. (Pari and Jinn were Lovers as we believe as the information got from my Father’s Village)2) My Great Great Grand Father having name of my Son Rasheed has killed that Snake (in the form of Jinn) without knowing that the Snake belongs to that treasure. But that is not Snake but that is Jinn as we believe. (My name is Abdul Rahman. My Father’s name is Abdul Raquib. My Grand Father name is Abdul Rahman. 3) That ‘Hazat’ told us in that sitting - as my Son also named ‘Mohammed Abdur Rasheed’ with same name of Great Great Great Grand Father, the so called Jinn took oath that he will take the lives of seven coming generation teens of my father's family. 4) Hazat made some treatment of ‘Sadaqah’ by making both Pari and Jinn in detention and to be away from my Son. Allahualam. It has been informed to us that it will be OK for six months only. After six months, my Son may suffer again with these Pari and Jinn possession, Nawoozbillah.I forwarded some strong Ruqyah for my Son to listen daily to be safe from any kind of Jinn. He is listening and during that time he suffered with high fever. Please advise the reason for these kind of Jinn possession only with my Son and what is the cure for this other than Shirk. Please advise if such kind of snake revenge exists to believe.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

First of all, we ask Allah to relieve your son from this tribulation and completely cure him without leaving any disease in him, and combine for him both reward and wellness.

We ask Allah to raise his degrees because of this disease and to forgive his sins, as He is All-Hearing and He answers the supplications.

We advise you to supplicate Allah earnestly as He answers the supplication of the distressed and He makes a way out to hardship.

Indeed, the supplication of the father for his son is answered.

Abu Hurayrah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him narrated that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “There are three supplications that will undoubtedly be answered (by Allah): The supplication of a victim of injustice, the supplication of a traveler, and the supplication of a parent for his child." [Ibn Maajah]

We do not know exactly what happened to your son, whether it is a possession by jinn or otherwise, but we say to you that the man whom you described as a "Shaykh" claimed some matters of the Unseen, so he is closer to the magicians who claim to know the unseen. Therefore, it is not permissible to go to him because there is a threat to whoever goes to see magicians and fortunetellers.

Safiyyah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  her narrated from one of the Prophet’s wives, that he  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said, “A person who goes to a soothsayer (or magician) and asks him about something, his prayer is not accepted for forty nights.” [Muslim]

It is even more serious to believe what they say, as the threat is even severer.

Abu Hurayrah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him narrated that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “If anyone has intercourse with his wife when she is in menses, or has intercourse with her in her anus, or goes to a diviner and believes what he says, then he has indeed disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad [ sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention )].” [Ibn Maajah]

Therefore, you must avoid this man completely, and you should be keen on performing Ruqyah on your son, and continue to perform it on him many times, and think good of Allah and that He will cure him, as He will be for the slave as the slave expects Him to be.

May Allah protect us all from all kinds of tribulations.

For more benefit on Ruqyah, please refer to Fataawa 88660, 82917, 31469, 303697, and 268306.

Allah knows best.
