I find it credible to write this article for it concerns most of the visitors.
When people first come to know about the realities of Jinn and Magic; it is natural for them to believe that all of the misery they go through, could be due to jinn. But the fact is something else. I am writing this to clarify that not all discomforts come from Jinn alone.
One has to go through a few steps to confirm if it really is a Jinn, or mere a mental/medical illness.
First of all, a Raqi (Muslim_Exorcist) is not to diagnose a Patient until he confirms that his Patient prays 5 times a day, and follows the teachings of Islaam, and is not involved in any bad practice whatsoever. If the patient is not a practicing Muslim, the Raqi ought to send him back and tell him to come back after sometime, until he becomes a Practicing Muslim – and – if the sickness still persists that is.
People most of the times believe that –
always come from Jinn. This is wrong! We should not assume this until we confirm “Are we practicing Islam in our lives?”. If the answer is No, then we should not blame the Jinn, but ourselves. For Allaah says in the Quran:
“…Indeed, he (Shaitan) sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. Indeed, We have made the devils allies(friends) to those who do not believe.” [Surah Al-a’raaf: 27]
It is the Remembrance of Allaah that repels Evil. Thus we should practice Islaam in our lives, and at the same time seek refuge in Allaah from the Evil after every prayer we offer.
But then How do we confirm if someone Truly is bewitched/possessed?
1 – First of all, you need to look for symptoms. With every type of Magic comes specific symptoms. I have them mentioned before and you may follow that by clicking the link bellow:
If you believe that the symptoms of your illness match the ones I have mentioned in the articles above, then you may proceed to the next step in confirming whether it truly is Magic that you suffer from, or mere a medical illness. Remember, Bewitched/Touched people will always reflect a Dual Personality.
2 – A Ruqya, recitation of verses of the Quran in the ear of the Patient in order to exorcise him, is the way to confirming whether a patient is suffering from Magic, or some medical condition. The patient must have Ruqya recited to him in his ear. For more details about Ruqya, follow here:
Curing Sihr, Magic, Witchcraft, Possession-Stage I
Curing Sihr, Magic, Witchcraft, Possession-Stage II
First Condition of Patient During Ruqya
Second Condition of Patient During Ruqya
Third Condition of Patient During Ruqya
If the Magic is severe, the patient is most likely to fall into the ‘First condition’. If it is mild and very little, then it falls into the last two conditions, which will easily go away by Practicing Islaam and listening to a Ruqya 3 times in a day, by Allaah’s Will.
Even after this, if the patient does not feel any difference with it then it may well have been a Medical Condition, or simply something that was brought upon the patient as a Trial from Allaah (swt). In that case, we can only be patient and be grateful for what little we have. For Allaah is the Most Merciful, He is the Hearer of All, and Indeed nothing can harm anything without His Permission.
