Human possessed by Jinns – Truth or Myths

Posted on: June 4, 2008


Imaam Ahmad has narrated in his Musnad and Imaam Abu Dawood in his Sunan the hadith of Matr ibn Abdur Rahman Al-Anaq. He says: ‘Umm Aban binte al-Wazi ibn Zare ibn Aamir Al-Abdi narrates from her father that her grandfather Az-Zare’ went to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) with his possessed, insane son (or his nephew (sister’s son). She says my grandfather said:

“When we came to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) I said, ‘I have come to you with my son (or nephew) who is possessed so that you pray to Almighty Allah for him.” The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, “Bring him to me.”

He further says, “I took him to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) while the child was mounted. I dismounted him and took off his travel clothes and made him wear a pair of beautiful clothes. Then I grasped him by the hand and led him to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) who said, “Bring him close to me and put his back towards me.”

He also commanded for his clothes to be taken off. Then he raised his hands and put them on the child’s back in such a way that I saw his armpits. He was saying, “Come out O’ enemy of Allah! Come out O’ enemy of Allah!” Then the boy began to gaze with his true eyes and not with the previous gaze.

Then the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) made him sit in front of him and sent for some water with which he wiped the child’s face and the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) prayed for him.

After the Holy Prophet’s (peace and blessing be upon him) prayer for the child, no one in the group was superior to the child (i.e. in intelligence and understanding).’

Imaam Ahmad says in his Musnad that Abdullah ibn Nameer narrated to us from Uthman ibn Hakeem, he says: “Abdur Rahman ibn Abdul Aziz informed us about Ya’la ibn Murrah that he said, ‘Surely I have seen three things from the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) which no one has seen before me nor will anyone see them after me.

I went with the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) on a journey. When we had covered a little distance we passed by a woman who was sitting down with a child. She said, ‘O’ Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him), this child has been inflicted with a calamity and we have been inflicted because of him. I cannot count the amount of fits he has during a single day.’

The Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, ‘Bring him to me.’ The woman lifted the child towards him and placed the child between the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) and the saddle.

They lifted him up and the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) spat at him three times.

Then he said, ‘In the name of Allah. I am his servant. Come out O’ enemy of Allah.’ Then he returned the child to the woman and said, ‘Meet us on our return, at this place, and inform us about his actions.”

The narrator says, “We went and then we returned to find her in that place. She had three goats with her. The Noble Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) asked, ‘What is the condition of your child?’

She replied, ‘I swear by the name of the Divine Being who sent you with the truth that up to now we have not perceived anything from him. Sacrifice these goats.’

The Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, ‘Get down and take one goat from her and return the rest.” Then he narrated the remaining hadith.

Wakee’ narrates that Al-Amash conveyed to us from Al-Madinah ibn Amr who narrates from Ya’la ibn Murrah who says that his father said:

“A woman came to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) with her child who was insane. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, ‘Get out O’ enemy of Allah, I am the Messenger of Allah.’

He says the child became healthy and the woman gifted to the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) two rams, some cheese and butter. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, ‘Take the cheese, butter and also one of the rams but return the other to her.’”

Ya’la ibn Murrah Ash-Thaqafee (peace and blessing be upon him) says, “I have seen three things from the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him),” then he narrated a hadith and in it he said, “Then we travelled and passed by some water. A woman came to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) with her son who was possessed by a jinn. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) took hold of his nose and said, ‘Come out, surely I am Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah.”

The narrator says, “Then we went and when we returned from our journey we passed by that place. That woman came to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) with a goat’s child and some milk.

The Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) ordered her to take the goat’s child back and ordered his companions (may Allah be pleased with them) to drink the milk. Then he enquired about her child she replied, ‘In the name of the Being who sent you with the truth we have not seen anything wrong with him after you went.”
