Ten Ways of Protection from Shaytan

Imam Ibn ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah said:

1. Seeking refuge with Allah from Shaytan. Allah
the Most High said, “And if there comes to
you from Satan an evil suggestion, then seek
refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the
2. Recitation of the two soorahs al-Falaq and an-
Nas, as they have wondrous effect in seeking
refuge with Allah from his evil, weakening
Shaytan and protection from him. This is why
the Messenger, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam,
said: “No person seeks refuge with anything
like the Mu`awwidhatayn (soorahs al-Falaq
and an-Nas)”. [an-Nasaa’i, 5337] 3. Recitation of Ayat al-Kursi (2:255).
4. Recitation of soorah al-Baqarah. The
Messenger, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, said,
“The house in which al-Baqarah is recited is
not approached by Shaytan.” [Muslim] 5. The final part of al-Baqarah. The Messenger,
sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, said, “Whoever
recites the two last verses of al-Baqarah at
night they will suffice him.” [Muslim] 6. Recitation of the beginning of soorah Mu’min
(Ghafir), until His saying, “wa ilayhi-l-
maseer” (to Him is the destination). (i.e. “Ha.
Meem. The revelation of the Book is from
Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Knowing, the
forgiver of sin, acceptor of repentance, severe
in punishment, owner of abundance. There is
no deity except Him; to Him is the
destination.” [40:1-2])
7. Saying “la ilaha ill Allah wahdahu la sharika
lah, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa `ala
kulli shay’in qadir” (there is nothing worthy of
worship except Allah, He has no partner, His
is the Dominion and Praise, and He is able to
do all things) a hundred times.
8. The most beneficial form of protection from
Shaytan: abundance of remembrance of Allah,
the Exalted.
9. Ablution and prayer, and they are from among
the greatest means of protection, especially
at the time of emergence of anger and desire.
10. Abstinence from excess speech, food and
mixing with people.
