Reflecting On The Qur’aan–Ibn Qudaamah (rahimahullaah)

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

When a Bedouin heard the saying of Allaah [فَوَرَبِّ السَّمَاء وَالأرْضِ إِنَّهُ لَحَقٌّ مِّثْلَ مَا أَنَّكُمْ تَنطِقُونَ] ”Then, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is the truth (i.e. what has been promised to you), just as it is the truth that you can speak”[Dhaariyaat Ayah: 23]; so he (i.e. the bedouin) said: ”Who angered the Mighty and Majesty so that He made an oath?!” [At-Tawwaabeen: 279]

Asking the Jinn questions during Ruqyah–Al’Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan

Questions:

Virtuous Shaikh, may Allaah grant you success; if the Jinn speaks at the end of the ruqyah, should I ask him about the magic and who did it?

Answer: No, no do not ask him about the unseen and the magic. Tell him, ‘’Fear Allaah, get out of this person; fear Allaah and do not transgress against the Muslims’’. Advise him, (but) as for asking him to inform you about things, this is not permissible–this is seeking aid and assistance from the Jinn. Yes.
