|Allah the exalted has said: |
And say: Rabbi '`outhu bika min hamazătish-shayăteeni, wa 'a`outhu bika rabbi 'ay-yahdhurooni.>>
It is reported of the Prophet that he used to say: 'A`outhu bil lăhi 'as-samee`il-`aleemi minash-shaytănir-rajeemi, min hamzihi, wa naphkhihi, wa nafthihi

then seek refuge in Allah He is the One who hears and knows all things>> .(163)
And 'Athăn repels shaytăn:
(161) And say "O' my Lord! I seek refuge in You from the suggestions of the shayateen [plural
of shaytăn], And I seek refuge in You my Lord! that they come to me. [Come to me meaning in any of my affairs, and for this
Allah has commanded us to mention Him iwhenever we start doing things. Meaning in order to expel the shaytăn when eating,
slaughtering, etc.] This was Surat 'Al-Mu'minoon (#23) V.98-99.
(162) I seek refuge in Allah the Ever-Hearing, the Ever-Knowing from the despicable shaytăn,
from his diabolical possession [madness], from his instigation of pride, and from his erotic verses [poetry]
(163) Surat Fussilat (#41) V.36

|Suhayl bin Abi Salih said: My father sent me to Banee Hărithata and with me was a young slave, or a friend of ours, then
someone called him by his name from a fence, so the one that was with me overlooked upon the fence; however, he did not see
anything. So I mentioned that to my father, he said: If I had sensed that you would encounter this I would not have sent you.
However, if you ever hear a sound, then make the call to salăt, because I have heard Aba Hurayrata telling, of the Prophet , that he said: "When the salăt is called to, the shaytăn goes (turns) away." |

|Abu Addardă said: the Messenger of Allah stood up in prayer, then, we heard him say: 'A`outhu bil-lăhi minka (I seek refuge in Allah from you). |
He then said: 'Al`anuka bila`natil-lăhi (I curse you with the curse of Allah) three times.
He then extended his hand as if he was reaching for something. When the prayer was over, we said to
him: O' Messenger of Allah! We heard you saying something in the prayer which we have not heard you say before. Then we saw
you extend your hand. He said: The enemy of Allah Iblees came with a bright blaze of fire to put in my face. So I said 'A`outhu
bil-lăhi minka-- three times
Then I said: I curse you with the perfect curse of Allah ('Al`anuka bila`natil-lăhi 'attămmeti--
He did not move back, I then wanted to take him, and by Allah were it not for the supplication of our
brother Sulaymăn [Prophet Solomon] he would have become all tied up, and game for the children of Madeenah

|`Uthmăn bin 'Abil `As said: I said: O' Messenger of Allah! The shaytăn came as a screen between me, my prayer, and my
recitation causing me confusion in it ? So he said: "That is a shaytăn called Khanzab, so if you sense him then seek refuge in Allah from him, and spit to your left three
times." So I did that, and Allah made him go away from me. |
