Auzubillah Minashaitan Nirajeem Importance

Verse 98 of Surah Nahl of the Holy Quran says: “So when you read the Quran, [first of all] seek refuge in Allah from Satan who has been cast out [by His mercy]. From this verse, it is important to read Azubillah Minashaitan Nirajeem whether you are starting from the beginning of the Surah or in the middle of a longer text like Surah Baqarah.

Sulaiman B. Surd narrated: those two men abused each other in front of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), peace and blessings be upon him, so one of them’s eyes became red like coals and his neck veins swelled. So, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

I know of a wording, if he were to utter that, his fit of rage (would be no more and that wording is): I seek refuge with Allah from Satan (Shaitan) the accursed. The person said: Do you see any madness in me? Ibn al-‘Ala’ said: Do you see it? And he made no mention of the person.

Reference: Sahih Muslim 2610a

In-book reference: Book 45, Hadith 143


By saying this phrase, one has protected him/herself from all evil and negative thought. This phrase is like an armor against the satanic forces. If you are struggling in terms of your business, if you are not protected from bad luck, then Auzubillah Minashaitan Nirajeem would work for you.
