Allah (swt) says in the Holy Quran:
“For each (person) there are angels in succession, before and behind him. They guard him by the Command of Allah”. (TMQ-13:11)
This verse gives us a fair idea that the Allah (swt) can protect whosoever He wishes through His angels. A victim of black magic faces the threat of paranormal attacks and therefore, he urgently requires protection. The angels can definitely guard the victim of black magic- at the behest of Allah (swt). The question, at this point, arises that how can the victim avail this protection? The answer is by reciting Surah Baqarah because it attracts the angels towards its reciter. Obviously, if the angels surround the victim who is reciting this Surah then the devil is sure to turn tail and escape.
I have discussed in one of my earlier blogs that if the black magic jinnat are pitted against the angels then the only option that the former has is to plead with the angels for mercy. This is because the angels are far more powerful than the jinnat. The bottom line is that the victim can seek Allah (swt)’s protection against Satan by reciting Surah Baqarah.
The following hadith throws light on the fact that reciting Quran can prove to be very helpful in cases of black magic because the reciter gets the company of angels. Definitely, the one whom the angels prefer to accompany cannot be harmed through black magic.
Hazrat Aisha (ra) relates that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: ‘Verily the one who recites the Quran beautifully, smoothly and precisely will be in the company of noble and the obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have twice that reward’. (Al-Bukhari)
There are several other ahadith which show the importance of Surah Baqarah.
Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) advised: ‘Do not turn your houses into graves. Verily, Satan does not enter the house where Al-Baqarah is recited’.
Al-Bukhari recorded that Usayd bin Hudayr said that he was once reciting Sural Al-Baqarah while his horse was tied besides him. Suddenly, the horse started making noises. When Usayd stopped reciting the horse stopped moving about and when he continued the recitation the horse started moving again. Meanwhile, his son Yahya was close to the horse and so he feared that the horse might trample him. As he moved his son away from the horse he looked up towards the sky and noticed a cloud gleaming with light which looked like lamps. The next morning he went to the Prophet (pbuh) and narrated the incidence to him. He said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! My son Yayha was close to the horse and I feared my son would get trampled. When I attended to him and raised my head towards the sky, I saw a cloud with lights like lamps. So I went but I could not see. The Prophet (pbuh) asked, ‘Do you know what that was’? He replied, ‘No’. The Prophet (pbuh) said, ‘They were angels, they came close hearing your voice (recitation of Surah Baqarah) and if you had continued reading it then the people would have been able to see the angels at dawn and the angels would not have be hidden fro their eyes’. (This is the narration reported by Imam Abu Ubayd Al Qasim bin Salam in his book Fada’il Al Quran).
Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said, ‘There is a verse in Surah Al-Baqarah, which is the main verse of the Quran and if it is recited in a house where there is a devil then he will certainly get out of it. It is the Throne verse’.(Al-Hakim and Baihaqi transmitted it from Abu Huraira (ra).
Reported Abu Hurairah in a lengthy hadith about his encounter with Satan: Recite Ayatal-Kursi (2:255) while retiring at night. He confirmed that ‘A protector from Allah will then remain over you and Satan will not come near you, until the morning’
Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Everything has a hump and the hump of the Quran is Surah Al-Baqarah; if anyone recites it in his house during the night then no devil can enter it for three nights and if anyone recites it in his house during the day then no devil can enter his house till three days’. (Ibn Hibban Tabarani and Baihaqi transmitted it from Sahl bin Sa’d (ra).
These ahadith show that Surah Baqarah is a very potent remedy for curing the disease of black magic as it drives away the devils.
Since Surah Baqarah is the longest chapter of the Holy Quran (268 verses) therefore people usually evade its recitation. However, as they say that ‘where there is a will, there is a way’. So the victims can make up their mind to unleash the power of this Surah if they are really determined to break free from the vicious circle of black magic, which keeps gnawing at your entire being as well as their life.
There are some ways in which Surah Baqarah can help one tide over the black magic crisis:
By reciting it daily at night. After the recitation, blow thrice over a bottle full of water and drink it throughout the day. This is a sure-shot way to become immune from the disease of black magic. It is to be noted that once you make up your mind to recite this Surah the devils will try to stop you by playing tricks on you. You may start feeling sleepy or lazy but remember that these are just tricks used by the jinnat because they know that they will not be able to carry on with their black magic if their target recites this powerful surah.
Alternatively, hear its recording, attentively.
Or else, try reading at least a portion of this Surah daily. Remember, that the black magician, however powerful he may be, will not be able to overcome the power of this Surah. So you can well understand the importance of reciting it- no matter how long it is.
At least recite Ayatal Kursi (2:255) and the last two verses of Surah Baqarah.
InshaAllah you will notice positive changes in your life as the black magic gets curbed due to the blessings of this surah.
