For Getting Saved From Genies

The book Aqâm-il-Marjân, by Qâdî Badruddîn Shablî, is in Arabic and it is great. It is entirely about genies. At one place it says, "It is permissible to ask genies about past things. It is not permissible to ask them about the things that will happen in the future. They know past things by seeing and hearing them. It is not permissible to do things that cause disbelief in order to rescue epileptic people or those people who have been paralyzed by genies from genies. Here we are writing the best ten remedies for getting saved from genies [briefly]:

1. Say A'ûdhu-Basmala and recite the sûra of Fâtiha
2. Say A'ûdhu-Basmala and recite the sûra of Qul-a'ûdhu
3. Say A'ûdhu-Basmala and recite the sûra of Baqara
4. Say A'ûdhu-Basmala and recite the Âyatalkursî
5. Say A'ûdhu-Basmala and recite the final âyat of Baqara Sûra
6. Say A'ûdhu-Basmala and recite the sûra of Hâ-mîm Mu'min from the beginning up to 'masr,' and also Âyatalkursî
7. Recite the prayer, "Lâ ilâha illallâhu wahdahu lâ sharîka lah lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa 'alâ kulli shay'in qadîr"
8. Say (Allah) very often
9. Be with your ritual ablution all the time, never omit the fard and the sunnat actions
10. Avoid looking at nâ-mahram women, eating much and being in crowds."

The book Barakât, after telling about Muhammad Sa'îd, writes that in order to protect himself from genies, Imâm-i Rabbânî used to say the prayer, "Lâ hawla walâ quwwata illâ billah-il-'aliyyil'azîm." Hadrat Imâm-i Rabbânî advised saying this prayer in his 174th letter for repelling genies. This prayer is called "kalima-i tamjîd.
