Muharram Niaz


Last Updated on Tuesday, 13 October 2015 16:37


Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

Respected Ulama

As the month of Muharram has dawned upon us once again, one notices that many Muslims engage in a lot of weird practices such as, for example: buying apples and preparing milkshake and going to a specific place (designated for this purpose) to offer ‘Muharram niaz’. They go there, offer the apples and milkshake and sometimes another type of sweet dish as well... and then make du‘aa. Some other strange practices are also engaged in. Many people also take vows during the year, with the intention that if they achieve their desire, they will go to this place in Muharram and offer niaz.

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)


As Salaamu ‘alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh

Respected Maulana,

I always felt very strongly against people visiting ‘aamils and becoming obsessed in following different treatments when it comes to them having jinn/sihr problems. I feel that the sunnah offers the perfect prescription, with the ‘Quls’ and other masnoon du‘aas. However, due to being affected by witchcraft by my in-laws, I too was encouraged to visit some ‘aamils and ended up going for different treatments and feel worse than when I started. Moreover, I was told that since my in-laws are the cause, I should keep away from them but I think this may hurt my husband’s feelings.

Would appreciate Maulana’s guidance please.
