Effect of a recording of Surah Al-Baqarah in the home
Fatwa No: 89306


If a recording of Surah Al-Baqarah is played in the home, will it have the same effect if recited by a live person, i.e. will it keep the Satan away from your home for 3 days?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.


There is no doubt that reciting the Qur'an and the Prophetic supplications and mention of Allaah will drive away the devil from one's home whether they are recited by a person or by a recorded tape, and it is desirable for whoever hears the Qur'an from a tape or otherwise to listen to it. There is no harm also to play the tape of the Qur'an even if no one is at home, or no one to listen to it.

Allaah knows best.
