Title: Grandfathers illness



I have a grandfather who comes to visit from India to New Zealand. He has this illness, when sleeping he suddenly wakes up and starts shouting very loudly and recites Lailahaillah and he describes as being very pressuring and he gets very hot. He said that he's been to many Alims in India and they give him things like taweezs, he thinks it is a jinn. But he says no one knows because he thinks the jinn comes and then just goes away, so they can't help. He also explains in India once long time ago before this illness he had a fight with this "Bapu" after a couple a days after coming back from the farm around maghrib time his joints became loose and whenever he looked at that man he got shocked. Ever since that he has had this illness. That man is dead. But he really wants a cure. Please Mufti Saab help him.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear Brother in Islam,

May Allah Ta’ala grant your grandfather Shifaa and may Allah Ta’ala reward you for the concern of your grandfather. Ameen. Serve him and take his Duas.

Consider analyzing your grandfathers condition from a medical point of view as well as Jinn etc. point of view. Refer to a doctor for medical advice.

Also advise him to recite the Manzil every day and also blow in water and drink the water before sleeping at night.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
