بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

وَقُل رَّبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنۡ هَمَزَٲتِ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينِ (٩٧) وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ رَبِّ أَن يَحۡضُرُونِ (٩٨)

And say: My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones, (97) And I seek refuge in Thee, my Lord, lest they be present with me, (98)

Tafseer by Dr. Farhat Hashmi

O my Lord I seek refuge from the whisperings of shaitaan, which appears out of the blue, and it may occur repetitiously like the repeated needle prick or squeezes you again and again for retribution.

O my Lord I seek refuge from even a hint of shaytaans presence.

Allah Subhanawataala teaches us how to seek refuge from the whisperings of Shaytaan:

Surah Araaf 200-201:

If a suggestion from Satan assail thy (mind), seek refuge with Allah; for He heareth and knoweth (all things). (200) Those who fear Allah, when a thought of evil from Satan assaults them, bring Allah to remembrance, when lo! They see (aright)! (201)

DUA: Prophet Muhammad pbuh used to make this dua to seek refuge in Allah from Shaytaan, he also used this in salah and blow towards the heart, three times:

Aazoobillahi samee al aleem, minash sahytaaan nir rajeemi min hamzehe wa natkhayhe (blowing) wa nafkhayhe (dum karna). (check last two words they were difficult to clarify, please let me know if you know them)

If one has a recurring thoughts against his Deen or Allah Subhanawataala or others recite the above three times.

    a3oothu bellahi asame3uL3alim mena shaytani erajim, men Hamzihi , wa nafkhehi(blowing)the second word could be Nafthehi , ( I think it could be derived fromthe word in Surat Alfalque) “men share enafathati fel3okad” the Bad magicians{who use Magic by Blowing in Knots} and Allahu A3lam.

  2. As Salam U Alaykum,

    Book 3, Number 0763:
    Narrated Jubayr ibn Mut’im:

    Jabir saw the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) observing prayer. (The narrator Amr said: I do not know which prayer he was offering.)

    He (the Prophet) said: Allah is altogether great; Allah is altogether great; Allah is altogether great; and praise be to Allah in abundance; and praise be to Allah is abundance; and praise be to Allah in abundance. Glory be to Allah in the morning and after (saying it three times). I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed devil, from his puffing up (nafkh), his spitting (nafth) and his evil suggestion (hamz).

    He (Amr) said: His nafth it poetry, his nafkh is pride, and his hamz is madness.

    (47) The Sunnah is that he should sometimes say:
    A’oodhu billaahi min ash-Shaytaan-ir-Rajeem [min hamzihi, wa nafkhihi, wa nafthihi]
    I seek refuge with Allaah from Satan, the Rejected One [from the insanity he brings about, from his arrogance and from his evil poetry].
    (48) Or that he says:
    A’oodhu billaah-is-Samee’-il-‘Aleem min ash-Shaytaan-ir-Rajeem min hamzihi, wa nafkhihi, wa nafthihi
    I seek refuge with Allaah, the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing, from Satan, the Rejected One, from the insanity he brings about, from his arrogance and from his evil poetry.
