Dua To keep away Whispers of Shaitan
- Seeking refuge in Allah Ta’ala from devil. (Abu Dawood, Tirmizi)
- Azan (Muslim)
- Azkar reported from Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi wasallam and recitation of the Holy Quran.
Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi wasallam said:
« لاَ تَجْعَلُوا بُيُوتَكُمْ مَقَابِرَ إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ يَنْفِرُ مِنَ الْبَيْتِ الَّذِي تُقْرَأُ فِيهِ سُورَةُ الْبَقَرَةِ » (مسلم)
Translation: Do not make your houses as graveyards. Satan runs away from the house in which Surah Al-Baqarah is recited. (Muslim)
Likewise, things that chase away the devil are supplications of morning and evening; supplication while entering the house and that of going outside ones house; supplications of entering to masjid and that of departing from masjid etc that are authentically reported from the holy Shari’at, for example recitation of Aayatul Kursi (aayah of throne) at the time of sleeping, last two aayat of the Surah Al-Baqarah, etc.
1- Whoever says:
« لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ المُلْكُ، وَلَهُ الحَمْدُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ»
La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul mulko walahul hamdo, wa Huwa ala kulle shai’in Qadeer.
‘There is no god but Allah, alone without any partner. The Kingdom and praise belong to Him and He has power over everything’,
Whoever says this supplication one hundred times a day, it is the same for him as freeing ten slaves. One hundred good actions are written for him and one hundred wrong actions are erased from him, and it is a protection from Shaytan for that day until the night. No-one does anything more excellent than what he does except someone who does more than that.” (Bukhari)
Likewise, Azan also chases away the devil.
