As-salamu `alaykum Mawlana Shaykh Hisham and TEAM:
One sister attending my dhikr circle went to a Sudanese Shaykh located at Imam Hussein Mosque. He told her to stop attending Qur’an tajweed class and stop reading Qur’an for a while and read only Fatihah 1001 times or something like that and then later go back to reading Qur’an. And he justified this by saying that Jinn are resisting her Qur’an reading. This is very confusing for me to hear. Please advice. May Allah bless you.
It is okay to recite 1001 Fatiha as a cleansing but as for saying that the Jinn resist the Qur’an then no, because Allah Most High said in Surat al-Jinn that they declared hearing a wondrous Qur’an that led to guidance, so how can they resist it?
