You should begun by saying, “A’udhu billaahi min ash-Shaitan ir-rajeem”. It is a request from his Lord for refuge,

I  Seek refuge in Allah from knowledge that brings no wisdom, from a heart that lacks kindness, from desires that bring discontent, and from supplications that go unanswered.-  Messenger of Allah May Allah's peace and blessings be on him .


The jinn are NOT fallen angels.  They were created from a smokeless flame of fire. The first recorded jinni to be disobedient is Iblis.  Disbelieving, disobedient jinn and humans are known as shay teen Shaitans).


The Noble Qur'an - Ar-Rahmaan 55:15, 15

He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery.

And the jinn’s did He create from a smokeless flame of fire.

For example,  Efreets (ifrit, fem. Ifritah)  are almost always listed as a separate class, but then we have the si'la (treacherous spirits of invariable form), Ghoul (Ghoul), Shaitans (Shaitans), who are evil jinn, Jann, who are a weaker, more primeval race of jinn, and the most malevolent of the jinn called the Marid. In any particular reference, all of this class is likely not to be mentioned.


 Every human has a partner Jinn

Hadith - Sahih Muslim 6757, by 'Aisha, r.a.
Allah's Apostle May Allah's peace and blessings be on him said: There is none amongst you with who is not an attaché from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah's Apostle May Allah's peace and blessings be on him with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good.


Make du’aa (supplication) such as the following:

 Khinzab (Satan)

 Supplication for one afflicted by whisperings in prayer or recitation...

Hadith - Sahih Muslim 5463, Narrated Uthman ibn Abul'As, r.a.
Uthman came to Allah's Messenger May Allah's peace and blessings be on him and said: Allah's Messenger, the Satan intervenes between me and my prayer and my reciting of the Qur'an and he confounds me. Thereupon Allah's Messenger May Allah's peace and blessings be on him said: That is (the doing of the Satan) who is known as Khinzab, and when you perceive its effect, seek refuge with Allah from it and spit* three times to your left. I did that and Allah dispelled that from me.
(this is a dry spit in the air)


The Noble Qur'an - Al-Baqarah 2:286
Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. "Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which you did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians); our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people."


 Hadith - Al-Muwatta 51.10
Yahyaa related to me from Malik that Yahyaa ibn Said, "When the Messenger of Allah May Allah's peace and blessings be on him was taken on the Night Journey, he saw an evil jinn seeking him with a torch of fire. Whenever the Messenger of Allah May Allah's peace and blessings be on him turned, he saw him. Jibril said to him, 'Shall I teach you some words to say? When you say them, his torch will be put out and will fall from him.' The Messenger of Allah May Allah's peace and blessings be on him said, 'Yes, indeed.'
             Jibril said, 'Say, 'I seek refuge with the Noble Face of Allah and with the complete words of Allah which neither the good person nor the corrupt can exceed, from the evil of what descends from the sky and the evil of what ascends in it, and from the evil of what is created in the earth and the evil of what comes out of it, and from the trials of the night and day, and from the visitations of the night and day, except for one that knocks with good, O Merciful!" "'

A’udhu bi- wajhi'llahi' l-karim WA bi kalimati'llahi't-tammati. Allati la yujawazu hunna barra wa la Fajr, min sharri ma yanzilu min as-sama, wa sharri ma ya’ruju fiha, wa sham ma dhara' fil-’ardhi, wa sharri ma yakhruju minhaa, wa min fitanil-layli wa'n-nahar, wa min tawariqi'l-layli wa'n-nahar ila taariqan yatruqu bikhayrin ya Rahman!


Recite the following du’aa to remain safe from the evil of Shaitan, genie, and wicked person.

LAA ILAAHA ILLAA HUWA A'LAYHI TAWAKKALTU WA HUWA RABBUL A'RSHIL A'Z'EEM MAA SHAA-ALLAAHU KAANA WA MAA LAM YASHAA LAM YAKUN ASHHADU ANNALLAAHA A'LAA KULLI SHAY-IN QADEER WA ANNALLAAHA QAD AH'AAT'A BIKULLI SHAY-IN ILMAA ALLAAHUMMA INNEE A-O'OD'U BIKA MIN SHARRI NAFSEE WA MIN SHARRI KULLI DAABBATIN ANTA AAKHID'UM BINAAS'IYATIHAA INNA RABBEE A'LAA S'IRAAT'IM MUSTAQEEM

 Or

Protection from Shaitan

It is narrated by Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) Peace and salutations be upon Him. Said, whoever says La ilaha illallaah Wahdahu La shareeka lahu, Lahul mulk wa Lahul Hamd, wa Huwa ‘Alaa kulli shy-inn Qadeer. 100 times daily will get the reward for freeing 10 captives; he will get 100 blessings, 100 mistakes will be wiped out, it will be a protection for him/her from Shaitan all that day till the night. No one will get a better reward except who did more than that.

[There is no god save He. I rely on Him. He is the Lord of the great a'rsh. What He wills takes place; and what He does not will does not take place. I bear witness that, verily, Allah, has power over all things: and, verily, Allah encompasses every thing in (His) knowledge, O my Allah, I seek refuge with you from the evil inside me and from the evil of every creature that you seizes with its forelock. Verily my lord is on the right path]


Say Bismillah and then the du’aa below before entering the toilet area...This place is the most inhabited of all the places in the house.


Allah's Messenger May Allah's peace and blessings be on him said: The screen between the eyes of Jinn and the private parts of the sons of Adam as one of them enters the privy is that he should say: In the name of Allah.

(Bismillah] Allahumma inna 'a’udhu bika minal khubthi wal khabaa'ith).

[In the Name of Allah]. Oh Allah, I seek protection in you from unclean spirits, male and female. 
In order to be safe from their mischief, one should have strong faith in Allah Ta’aala.


 Protection from the harm of the jinn

Because the jinn can see us while we cannot see them, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught us many ways to protect ourselves from their harm, such as seeking refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan, reciting Surat al-Falaq and Surat al-Nas (the last two Surah of the Qur’an), and reciting the words taught by Allah in the Qur’an (interpretation of the meaning): "Say: ‘My Lord! I seek refuge with you from the whisperings (suggestions) of the Shaitan (devils). And I seek refuge with you, my Lord, lest they may attend (or come near) me.’" [Al-Muminin 23:97-98]

Saying Bismillah (in the Name of Allah) before entering one’s home, before eating or drinking, and before having intercourse will also keep the Shaitan from entering the house or partaking with a person in his food, drink and sexual activity. Similarly, mentioning the name of Allah before entering the toilet or taking off one’s clothes will prevent the jinn from seeing a person’s ‘awrah or harming him, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "To put a barrier that will prevent the jinn from seeing the ‘awrah of the sons of Adam, let any one of you say ‘Bismillah’ when entering the toilet.”.

Strength of faith and religion in general will also prevent the jinn from harming a person, so much so that if they were to fight, the one who has faith would win. ‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "A man from among the Companions of Muhammad met a man from among the jinn. They wrestled, and the human knocked down the jinn. The human said to him, ‘You look small and skinny to me, and your forearms look like the front paws of a dog. Do all the jinn look like this, or only you?’ He said, ‘No, by Allah, among them I am strong, but let us wrestle again, and if you defeat me I will teach you something that will do you good.’ The human said, ‘Fine.’ He said, ‘Recite, ‘Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever-living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists…’ [: Ayatul kursi Baqarah: 2:255: –. Interpretation The human said, ‘Fine.’ He said, ‘You will never recite this in your house but the Shaitan will come out of it like a donkey breaking wind, and he will never come back in until the next morning.’" .
This is a brief summary about the jinn, and their nature and characteristics. Allah is the Best of protectors and the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

The Messenger of Allah said to Umar, "By the one whose hand is my soul, no devil sees you walking along a path but he takes a different path." (Bukhari 6/339)

This did not apply exclusively to Umar. Whoever is strong in his faith can defeat his Shaitan and humiliate him, as it says in the Hadith: "The believer can seize the forelock of his devil as one of you seizes the forelock of his camel whilst his traveling." (Ahmad)

 "What is meant by seizing his forelock is defeating him and overwhelming him, as one does with a camel when it runs away when you seize it and overpower it.”.
The final safe Haven a fortified fortress of knowledge

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) Peace and Salutations be Upon Him. Said, “One fiqh (an expert in Islamic jurisprudence) is stronger against Shaitan than a thousand abid (worshipers). Knowledge should be important for the believers in all aspects of life however the importance of knowledge in opposing Shaitan can be well illustrated in the following story Related by Ibn Abbas:
‘The shaitans say to Iblis, “Master we delight in the death of a man of knowledge more than we rejoice in that of a man of worship. We are harmed by the man of Knowledge, but not harmed by the man of worship.”
‘Iblis says,” come on, let’s go.” So of they go to a man of worship and tell him they want to ask him a question. Iblis says, “Can your Lord put the world inside an egg?” “The worshipper replies, “I don’t know.”
‘Iblis says to shaitans, “don’t you see there is disbelief in his answer?
‘Then they go to a man of knowledge, who is joking in his circle of companions and say, “We want to ask you a question.”‘ He says, “Ask.”Iblis says to him, “Can your Lord put the world inside an egg?” ‘He says, “Yes.” ‘Iblis asks “How?” ‘The man of knowledge says,
“His command when he desires a thing is that He says to it, ‘BE!’AND IT IS.” (C 36: V 82)
Iblis says to the shaitans, “Don’t you see that the worshiper has no effect beyond himself while this man of knowledge estranges much of the world from me?”’

"All humans are dead except those who have knowledge; and all those who have knowledge are asleep except those who do good deeds; and those who do good deeds are deceived; except those who are sincere, and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry." (Imam ash-Shaafa’i)


A Muslim who wants to save himself from the Shaitan and his tricks has to work on strengthening his faith and seek the protection of Allah and turn to him, as there is no power and no strength except with Allah.

Verses of the Quran and due’s for Seeking refuge and effective in repelling the Evil Jinn:

Allah (swt) desires that goodness (khair) reaches His servants, and that the evil (shar) be kept away from them.” That is why He swt said if the believer wants evil to be kept away from him, he should recite, “A’udhu billaahi min ash-Shaitan ir-rajeem.” When he says “A’udhu billaahi min ash-Shaitan ir-rajeem”, he is expelling Shaitan from his heart and approaching Allah (swt).

Every deed (‘Amaal) that the believer wishes to perform should be begun by saying, “A’udhu billaahi min ash-Shaitan ir-rajeem”. It is a request from his Lord for refuge,

One way or the other, YES! they are out there!, Jinn live on even today, but don't go looking for them to get you that fast Bugatti Veyron , or indeed, it may be your ride to hell

Feel free to Share the information here with everyone you know,
And earn Sawab-e-Jariya..May Allah swt make it a source of Sawab-e-Jariya for u and me .Ameen 

P.S.: "Have fun praying    don’t forget to make dua for me.
