ROOHANI ILAAJ (SPIRITUAL TREATMENT)

 

WHAT IS ROOHANI ILAAJ?

 

Roohani ilaaj is an Urdu term, which translates to “healing of the soul”. It describes the treatment of spiritual issues, such as magic, evil eye and jinn possession, which are believed to afflict the soul of affected individuals. Roohani ilaaj involves the recitation of dua (prayers) and Quranic verses with the aim of alleviating these spiritual issues.

 

Roohani ilaaj and dua is based on tawakkul (trust) in Allah only. Undoubtedly, shifaa (healing) is in the hands of Allah. We and Pir Azmat Nawaz Sahib, as Muslims, can only pray to Allah for shifaa (healing).

 

Despite the undeniable facts in Islam confirming the existence of sihr (magic/jadoo), ayn (evil eye/nazar) and jinn (spirit) possession, it does NOT mean that we can blame all our problems in life on magic/evil eye/jinn. Before considering roohani ilaaj (spiritual treatment), you should explore other causes for life problems and you MUST seek any medical advice and treatment from a trained, qualified and licensed medical health professional.

 

Magic/evil eye/jinn CANNOT affect us WITHOUT ALLAH’S WILL. If Allah wills for someone to be affected by magic/evil eye/jinn, then surely it is a TEST for the person affected. Allah tests all his Muslims with trials and tribulations in this life in order to validate the sincerity of our imaan. The stronger the imaan of a Muslim, the harder they are tested. Every Muslim will be tested differently and if one is tested by being afflicted with magic/evil eye/jinn, then keeping faith in Allah, praying to Him and seeking treatment in an ISLAMIC way is the correct method of overcoming the test. Allah will never put us through a trial we cannot bear.

 

WHAT ARE SOME METHODS OF PREVENTION AND SELF-TREATMENT OF SPIRITUAL ISSUES?

 

Although magic/evil eye/jinn can affect anyone, regardless of how pious they are, striving to be close to Allah and worshipping Him play a huge role in alleviating the effects of spiritual issues. The importance of maintaining sincere faith, praying each of the 5 prayers daily, reading Quran, reciting daily adhkaar, making dua to Allah, repenting from sins, fasting, paying zakaat, giving to charity etc. cannot be stressed

enough. In addition to this, the Prophet (SAW) recommended certain measures for protection from magic/evil eye/jinn, some of which are mentioned below:

 

  • Consuming 7 ajwah dates daily in the morning (prior to any other food or drink)

    • The Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever eats seven ajwah dates in the morning every day, no poison or magic will harm him during that day.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

 

  • Recitation of Surat al-Fatihah

    • Abu Saeed reported that after he had recited Surat al-Fatihah to cure a person who had been bitten by a scorpion, the Prophet (SAW) asked him: “And what made you to know that it was a ruqya?” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

 

  • Recitation of Surat al-Baqarah

    • The Prophet (SAW) said: “Indeed, Shaytaan flees from the house in which Surat al-Baqarah is recited.” [Al-Tirmidhi]

 

  • Recitation of Ayat ul-Kursi

    • Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW) ordered him to guard the zakat of Ramadhan and somebody came and took handfuls from the zakat for two nights in succession. On the third night, Abu Hurayrah (RA) caught him and said: “I will take you to Allah’s Messenger (SAW)!” The thief said: “Leave me alone and I will tell you a few words by which Allah will benefit you. When you go to your bed, recite Ayat ul-Kursi, for then there will be a guard from Allah who will protect you all night long and Shaytaan will not be able to come near you till dawn.” When the Prophet (SAW) heard the story he said: “He (who came to you at night) told you the truth although he is a liar; and it was Shaytaan.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

 

  • Recitation of Surat al-Ikhlas and al-Muawadhatayn (i.e. Surat al-Falaq and Surat an-Nas)

    • Abu Saeed (RA) said: “The Prophet (SAW) used to seek refuge from the jinn and from the effects of the (evil) of men until al-Muawadhatayn were revealed. When they were revealed he clung to them and abandoned what was besides them.” [Al-Tirmidhi]

    • Aisha (RA) said: “Every night when the Prophet (SAW) went to bed, he would cup his hands together, blow into them then recite in to them qul huwa Allahu ahad, qul a’oodhu bi Rabb il-falaq and qul a’oodhu bi Rabb in-naas, then he would wipe as much as he could reach of his body, starting with his head and face and the front of his body. And he would do that three times.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

 

  • Calling the adhaan

    • The Prophet (SAW) said: “When the call to prayer is made, Shaytaan flees on his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight so that he does not hear the adhaan.” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim]

 

HOW IS ROOHANI ILAAJ CARRIED OUT AT PATRIATA SHAREEF?

 

During a roohani ilaaj session at the astana, Pir Azmat Nawaz Sahib will recite Durood Shareef, verses from Quran and duas over the gathering of visitors; this is called “roohani damm” or “roohani operation”. It is important for visitors to ensure they are keeping up with their Islamic obligations, especially praying 5 times a day, before beginning their ilaaj.

 

Procedure for roohani damm:

  • you should be in a state of wudhu and, sisters, in appropriate hijaab

  • stand facing the qiblah for the duration of roohani damm (you may remain seated and face the qiblah if you are unable to stand)

  • place your right hand over your heart or where you feel you require ilaaj

  • or, if you feel you are affected by jinn, both hands should be folded tightly into fists and held up

  • keep your eyes closed for the duration of the damm

  • keep in mind the issue for which you require shifaa (healing)

  • keep in mind that shifaa (healing) is granted by Allah only

  • recite Durood-e-Ibrahimi for the entire duration of the damm

  • you may open your eyes and sit down when the damm is complete

 

During the recitation in roohani damm, the blessings of Allah are showered upon the gathering. The power of the Quran and duas remove magic, taweedh (amulets), evil eye and jinn. It is recommended that you attend 6 sessions of roohani damm for full benefit. Alhamdulillah thousands of visitors have achieved shifaa (healing) for various issues, by the will of Allah. With the consent of the individuals concerned, testimonials and interviews from visitors to the astana are available on the YouTube channel (pir Azmat Nawaz patriata shareef).

 

WHAT IS JINN HAZRI?

 

Jinn hazri (manifestation of the jinn) may take place during roohani damm, in those that are affected by jinn possession. The recitation of Quran and duas causes pain to jinn/shayateen, compelling them to reveal their presence. This may result in screaming and flailing around. In the event of this happening, continue with your ilaaj, volunteers will be on hand to take care of any visitors experiencing hazri. Please note, the recitation causes pain only to the jinn/shayateen, NOT the person they are possessing. With the consent of the individuals concerned, video footage of jinn haazri is available on the YouTube channel (pir Azmat Nawaz patriata shareef).

 

HOW WILL JINN BE REMOVED?

 

If a jinn refuses to leave or keeps returning to the person after multiple roohani damm sessions, it may be due to the following reasons:

  • the jinn has fallen in love with the human

  • an angry or grieving jinn seeking revenge for the actions of a human who has unknowingly harmed the jinn or injured/killed a family member of the jinn

  • a stubborn shaytaan (evil jinn) trying to misguide the human

  • a shaytaan (evil jinn) assisting a magician in destroying the human’s life

  • a (Muslim or kafir) jinn that is a victim of magic itself and is bound by taweedh (amulets) written by a magician, rendering the jinn unable to escape and forcing it to obey the magician against it’s wishes - the jinn will not be able to leave until the taweedh (amulets) and magic binding the jinn are destroyed

  • a (Muslim or kafir) jinn imprisoned, tortured and forced to obey a magicians requests against the jinn’s wishes, due to the jinn’s family being held hostage by the magician - the jinn’s family will need to be freed

  • a magician may be sending one jinn after the other as each jinn is removed

  • multiple jinn maybe possessing a single human

 

Such cases may require extra time for jinn removal. If affected individuals wish to have jinn removed by Pir Sahib, they will be attended to after the roohani damm. Pir Sahib will recite Quran and duas over the individual, compelling the jinn to hazir (manifest) again.

 

Upon haazri, the jinn may converse and explain the reason behind possession. Jinn can be dishonest or twist the truth, so anything spoken by jinn should be taken with a grain of salt. Occasionally, the jinn may be unable to speak if a magician has performed magic to block it’s mind, blind it’s eyes or silence it’s tongue, preventing it from revealing any details. Pir Sahib will recite duas to break the magic on the jinn’s mind, eyes or tongue. Similarly, taweedh (amulets) imprisoning the jinn will have to be destroyed to free the jinn from victim and, any family members of the jinn being held hostage by a magician will have to be freed.

 

Whatever the circumstances may be, Pir Sahib will invite the jinn to Islam, ask it to recite the Shahadah and request for it to leave and never return.
