To Feel Safe At Dreadful Places

Hadrat [1] Imam-i Rabbani says in the 69th letter of the second volume of his Maktubat:

Let me add that at dreadful places and when facing the enemy you should recite the sura of 'Li ilafi' so that you feel safe and comfortable. It has been experienced. Every day and every night you should say it, at least eleven times. A hadith [2] declares: "If a person who arrives at some places says the prayer 'A'udhu bikalimatillahi' t-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa' nothing will harm him until he leaves the place. " [In order to get rid of something dreadful or to get your wish, you should write from the thirty-seventh ayat [3] up to the end of the thirty-ninth ayat of the sura [4] of Taha in ink on a sheet of paper, then wrap it up seven times with some material, and keep it. Its benefit has been experienced many times. ] May Allahu ta'ala give safety to those who follow the right way! Amin.
