How to Protect Land for Extension from Jinns and Blackmagic

Answered by: Maulana Naieem Mohammad


Assalamu alaikum wrwb Shaykh,

I hope you are well.


If someone is getting an extension done, is there a specific Dua to read on the land to protect from Jinns and black magic?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Wa Alaikum Assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu,

It is indeed commendable that you are seeking guidance, protection and the solution to your issues from the perfect words of Allah.

When a parcel of land or even a building has to be cleared of jinns or black magic that may have been put there or has appeared there on its own, the following recommendations should be adhered to:

  1. Clearing
  2. Blocking

(Keep in mind that after some time the effect will diminish, so it would have to be renewed)

       Clearing the evil from the land/building by the recitation of Suratul Baqara. Four people who can recite the Quran properly should be used for this because Suratul Baqara is a weapon against evil, it chases the Shayateen away and the black magicians cannot withstand this Surah.[1]

When evil is attacked it usually retaliates, utilizing four readers for this amal makes it safer than utilizing just one person. Suratul Baqara consists of 40 Ruku’, thus 10 Ruku’ per person should be given. One person should be put to stand in each corner of the land, starting from the corner on the right of Qibla, then moving to an anti-clockwise direction, the other readers are to take their positions in the remaining corners. The recitation is to be done aloud and blown into water then sprinkled in the perimeter of the property, then the remaining water sprinkled in the middle of the land.[2]

Blocking the land involves the recitation of Surah Yaseen and Faatir. Both should be read in the middle of the land within 3 days after the first amal was done. This recitation attracts the mercy of Allah and brings Sakeenah (tranquillity). The Surahs are to also be recited and blown into the water and sprinkled on the land, dua should be made and one should beg Allah to accept the effort and grant protection.[3]

This process can be repeated thrice-yearly or as the need arises.

Only Allah knows best
