2.write its benefits and dua



The background to the incident is as follows, Abu Dujana said, "I was lying down, when I heard a noise like the noise of a mill or that of the leaves of a tree and saw a flash like lightning. I raised my head to see something black that was rising in the middle of the room. I felt it with my hand. It was like a porcupine's skin. It began to throw things like sparks at my face. At once I went to Rasulullah and told him what had happened. He said, 'O Aba Dujana! May Allah give your home goodness and abundance!' He asked for a pen and a piece of paper. He had Ali 'radiAllahu anh' write a letter. I took the letter to my home. I put it under my head and went to sleep. A yelling voice woke me up. It said, 'O Aba Dujana! You have burned me with that letter. Your owner is certainly much higher than we are. There is no way of escape for us, except that you remove that letter. We shall no longer come to your home or your neighbors.' We cannot go to places where the letter is.' I told him that I could not remove the letter without getting my owner's permission. The night seemed very long to me because of the crying and wailing of genies. After performing the morning prayer in the mosque, I told Rasulullah what the genie had said. Rasulullah 'sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam' said, 'Remove the letter, or else they will suffer the letter's pain till the Resurrection.'"

Hirz abu dujaana has been mentioned in Heavenly ornaments as a cure to protect from jinn. Though the Scholars have disputed its authenticity, there are two sanads for this hadeeth. The muhadditheen have classified only one of the sanads as moudhoo` i.e. the riwaayat of ibn-ul-Jowzi. The other sanad which has been quoted by Imam Baihaqi, Allamah Suyooti and Arraaq has not been severely criticized by the muhadditheen. Hence, this du`aa can be used.

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم بسم اللہ ھذا کتاب من محمد رسول اللہ رب العالمین الی من طرق الدار من العمار والزوار والسائحین الا طارقا یطرق بخیر یا رحمن اما بعد فان لنا و لکم فی الحق سعة فان تک عاشقا مولعا او فاجرا مقتحما او راعیا حقا مبطلا ھذا کتاب اللہ ینطق علینا و علیکم بالحق انا کنا نستنسخ ما کنتم تعملون۔ اترکوا صاحب کتابی ھذا وانطلقوا الی عبدة الاوثان والاصنام و الی من یزعم ان مع اللہ الھا آخر لا الہ الا ھو، کل شئ ھالک الا وجھہ لہ الحکم و الیہ ترجعون تقلبون حم لا تبفرون حمعسق تفرق اعداء اللہ و بلغت حجة اللہ و لا حول و لاقوة الا باللہ فسیکفیکھم اللہ و ھو السمیع العلیم
