For the protection of a place recite or listen to suratu-l-baqara once a day or once every three days. The Messenger of Allāh, may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him, has informed us that reciting this sūrah expels the sẖayṭān. He said, “Do not make your homes like graves. Sẖaytan flees homes where suratu-l-baqara is recited.”
Then, If Needed
If a person feels that something is in his home, he should put some water in a container, place his hand inside the container and placing the container close to his mouth, recite:
bismillahi amsayna bi-llahi-lladhi laysa maʿahu shayʾun mumtaniʿunw-wa bi ʿizzati-llahi-llati la turam-wa la tudam-wa bi sulṭan. Allahu-l-maniʿnahtajib wa bi asmaʾihi-l-husna kulliha ʿaʾidun min al-ʾabālisa wa min sharri shayaṭīn-bi-l-insi wa-l-jinni wa min sharri kulli muʿlanin-aw musirinw-wa min sharri ma yakẖruju bi-l-layli wa yakmunu bi-n-nahari wa yakmunu bi-l-layli wa yakẖruju bi-n-nahari.
In the Name of Allāh, we approach our evening by Allāh; nothing is beyond His reach, and by the strength of Allāh, which cannot be attained or contained, and by the authority of Allāh, which cannot be assailed, we protect ourselves with all of His names from the multitude of Iblises, and from the evils of the sẖayṭān of the human and the jinn. We protect ourselves from everything that is hidden and evident, and from everything that arises in the night and lays low in the day, and from everything that lays low in the night and arises in the day.
wa min sharri ma khalaq wa min sharri iblis wa junudihī wa min sharri kulli dabbatin ʾanta akhidhun binaṣiyatiha ʾinna rabbī ʿala ṣiratim-mustaqim.
And we protect ourselves from the evil of what He created, and from the evil of Iblis and his army, and from every evil of every creature that You hold in Your clutches. Surely my Lord is on a straight path.
ʾaʿudhu bi-llahi bi-ma-staʿadẖa bihi musa wa ‘isa wa ibrahim
I seek Allāh’s protection from everything that Moses and Jesus and Abraham asked to be protected from.
alladhi waqana min sharri ma khalaqa wa min sharri iblīsin wa junudihī wa min sharri ma yabghī
He protects us from the evil of His creatures; He protects us from the evil of Iblis and his army, and from the evils of his transgression.
ʾaʿudhu bi-llahi-s-samiʿi min ash-shayatani-r-rajim bismillahi-r-rahmani-r-rahim
I seek the protection of Allāh, the Hearer from the accursed sẖayṭān. In the Name of Allāh, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
Then read the following suras into the water and sprinkle this water all over the house. This removes all the sẖayāṭīn from the house, God willing.
