Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: ‘…Recite Surah Al Baqarah, for [reciting it & practicing on it] is a blessing. Abandoning it will be a cause of grief and regret, & those involved in witchcraft cannot confront it.’

(Sahih Muslim,1871)


Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: ‘…Indeed, Shaytan flees from that home in which Surah Baqarah is recited.’

(Sahih Muslim,1821)


Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “For everything there is a pinnacle, and the pinnacle of the Quran is Soorah Al-Baqarah; if anyone recites it in his house during the day, no devil will come near his house for three days; and if anyone recites it in his house during the night no devil will enter his house for three nights.”

[Al-Bayhaqi and Ibn Hibbaan]


Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Do not turn your houses to graveyards. Indeed, the devil runs away from the house in which Soorah Al-Baqarah is recited.” 



Rasullullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: Indeed, Allah inscribed a book, two thousand years before creating the heavens and the earth. He sent down two verses with which He ended Surah Al-Baqarah. When these verses are being recited in a house for three nights, Shaitan will not come near it.

(Tirmidhi: 2882)


Rasullullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: ‘…If these two verses are recited for three nights in a home, no Shaytan shall come near it.’

(Sunan Tirmidhi,2882)


Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Recite Soorah Al-Baqarah, for reciting it imparts blessing, abandoning it incurs grief, and the Batalah cannot confront it.” 


Mu‘aawiyah, one of the narrators of the Hadeeth commented: “I was informed that the word ‘Batalah’ in the Hadeeth means sorcerers. ”
