Why do I keep dreaming of Jinns attacking me?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am of 20 years age. My question is that its been a lot of times that I see dreams where Jinns are after me. At times it is like it is coming to me through any of my relative as in my relative has been possessed by a jinn and now they are trying to attack me, sometimes they are successful and I am also possessed. I see these dreams even after reciting all kalimats before sleeping and mostly after fajar prayer. Today morning also I saw that a relative who is possessed has transferred his jinn into me and then the Alim has taken me out of the spell. But in real life these relatives are my well wishers. Why is it that I frequently see such dreams? I have but in the past been a victim of jinn though. Please help.


A: There is no need to be worried. After your five daily Salaah and before retiring to bed recite four quls and Aayatul Kursi. Allah Ta’ala will save you from all harm. The following appear in the Mubaarak Ahaadith regarding the virtue of Aayatul Kursi.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه : أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم قال : سورة البقرة فيها آية سيد آي القرآن لا يقرأ في بيت و فيه شيطان إلا خرج منه آية الكرسي (مستدرك للحاكم رقم 2059)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “In Surah Baqarah there is an aayah that is the greatest of all the verses of the Quran. This verse is Aayatul Kursi, in whichever home this verse is recited and a Shaytaan is present there, immediately the Shaytaan leaves the home. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
