Verse for Protection

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DaruliftaaZambia.com


Ayah from Surah Yaseen

وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ سَدًّا وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لَا يُبْصِرُونَ

Wa Ja’alna Mim Bayna Aydeehim Saddanw Wa Min Khalfihim Saddan Fa Aghshaynahum Fa Hum La Yubsiroon”

And We have put a barrier before them, and a barrier behind them, and We have covered them up, so that they cannot see.

This is what Rasulullah read and blew unto the sand which he then threw in the direction of the assassins who were waiting outside his house. They could not see anything.

Pray this ayah 7 times before leaving the house for protection.

Please confirm if this should be followed. Jazakallah


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We could not locate a specific mention for the verse in question being recited for protection. However, there is no harm in reciting it once before leaving one’s house.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
