Surah Al-Baqarah For Curing Sihr
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
Surah Al-Baqarah is the longest chapter of the Quran, it is the second chapter of the holy book. Our Prophet (saw) told us the many benefits of the chapter itself and the individuals verses against Shaytan and its army.
There are narration which tells us to recite the whole chapter to protect ourselves from shaytan, reciting the whole chapter every three days enough to protect our homes. However, if you are suffering from the harms of black magic, evil eye and jinns disturbance in the house then you need to recite the chapter every day.
Often when people hear this they get disappointed as they feel how they going to do this every day. You can do it if you and your family plan and build a strategy to get this chapter of the Quran recited each day. Here are some tips:
The household needs to recite this chapter so you can allocate parts of Surah Al-Baqarah to each member of the household. If there are 2 of you then one can do the first part and another person the other half. If there are 3 or more then it will be even easier to do this.
If you live on your own or other family don’t want to assist every day then again plan how you going to complete this task. You can start reciting surah Al-Baqarah before you go to sleep, spending good 20mins. When you wake up you can spend another few minutes. If you fix times when you are free during the day then you can plan your day around reciting surah Al-Baqarah. See it as you need to recite this chapter of the Quran within 24 hours.
The chapter is very important when it comes to protecting and curing oneself from the unseen. As it contains within it certain verses that are powerful against jinns and their evil, the most powerful verse is Ayatul Kurshi (255) – we all know the benefits of this verse of the Quran.
There is also the final two verses (286-287), a narration that says that whoever recites these verses every night will suffice for them.
There is also verses 102, which tell us about the history of sihr and where it came from, that is Shaytan taught it to people, this verse also tells about sihr done to destroy a marriage and relationships.
There are also other verses which one can highlight – as can be seen, the chapters contain various references to sihr and evil jinns , so the chapter collectively gives us the tools to protect ourselves from the evil of the unseen world. Reciting the chapter provides us with a cure & protection against any unseen illness caused by Shaytan and his army.
How to recite Surah Al-Baqarah effectively: – first with any divine remedy you get out of it what you go with it, so the first step will always be preparation, make sure you have repented from all sins, you make an effort to be a person of sound character and make sure your income is halal. This is the starting point.
It is always good practice to do some optional prays, such as Salatul Hajat and/or Salatul Taubah – at the end of the day it is with Allah’s (swt) assistance we will get cured so one should get into a practice in doing voluntary prays.
The next step we recommend is to do some dhikr, such as:
- Astaghfirullah x 100 (minimum)
- La ilaha illallah x 100 (minimum)
- Durood – Alla Huma Salli Ala Muhammadin x 100 (minimum)
The above one should get into a habit of doing on a daily basis, it purifies the heart, soul and the mind.
Now make an intention you want to destroy all the evil that has afflicted you / your family, this would be all the jinns, the evil eye, all the sihr, all the evil whisphers (waswas) and all their evil web & network are destroyed as well, you should make the intention wide as possible.
I would recommend also recite Surah Yasin, Surah as-Saffat, Surah Ad-Dukhan, Surah Ar-Rahman and Surah Jinn and the Quls at least three times, once you have finished reciting Surah Al-Baqarah just to give that bit extra. You will not be able to do this everyday but whenever you have additional time.
Once finish your recitation you can blow into a bottle of water to drink and wash with, this will added benefit. Some people have been known to spray recited water around the house to ward off evil spirits, another good practice one can do.
Now if you are reciting surah Al-Baqarah every day and are trying to cure yourself this is how it will play out based on my limited knowledge.
-7 days of reciting surah Al-Baqrah – you and your family are getting into building a relationship with the surah, you will find your house has started to become calmer. Also, you may start to see positive dreams
-21 days of reciting surah Al-Baqarah – you and your family have got into a good routine. You start to see even more benefits of this surah. House becomes a lot calmer and more tranquil. You build a strong shield around your house and your family members.
Now it is time to add the following intention when you recite surah al-Baqarah – ‘Ya Allah Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum destroy the sorcery that is harming me (us) destroy them so they stop harming me (us) and never harm anyone else ever again. Ya Allah Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum overwhelm them with the evil they have done and will continue to do’.
As the prophet (saw) informed us in the hadith that Surah Al-Baqarah overwhelms the sorcerer
-40 days of reciting surah al-Baqarah – Now the practicalities are not many people will be able to recite this surah every day for 40 days as people have duties in their lives (duties come first). If you managed to recite this surah 35 out of 40 days you did very well. It shows you have good faith in Allah (swt) and faith in the Quran.
At this stage, you will start to feel the protection and power of surah Al-Baqarah. You will feel whenever the sorcerer is harming you the protective shield of Surah al-Baqarah pushing them away. Infact the evil people harming will become scared of you as they become overwhelmed. You will also see good positive dreams Insh’Allah.
By the way, you will also see who the sorcerer is by the images & dreams when you recite the surah (but don’t confront them let Allah (swt) alone deal with them which will be total destruction in this world and the hereafter.)
At this stage you will feel a lot better, all the unseen harm will be weak and sihr / evil eye will start to have less effect on you.
One problem you will face is the jinn will try and stop the affected person from reciting the surah, then this is where family members need to help out. They need to step in and assist in reciting the surah. Also, you may find certain times of day when the jinn(s) is weaker than others so need to recite at these times.
-70 days of reciting surah al-Baqarah – again if you recited the surah 60 times from 70 days you have done well. Now you will start to see the amazing benefits of this surah. you and your family will have total protection, Insh’Allah even the sorcerer will start to run away from you.
IMPORTANT – continue to recite this surah as you have been doing for the past 70 days. I don’t want to say when a person will get cured some will be sooner and others later. Never give up keep on reciting this surah and Insh’Allah you will find you will be free from the evil you are affected by.
TIP: the additional thing you can do is to play Surah Al-Baqarah in the house, these days we have many options to do this, via our phones using youtube or other dedicated apps but also you may wish to buy a Quran Player, which have highlighted here.

I will add little story for people about Surah Al-Baqarah:
This person decided to recite Surah Al-Baqarah every day as mentioned above. They started to receive all the benefits this surah provides. One night this person had a dream of a woman crying for help as she has was being attacked this evil sorcerer and a big fat jinn – which was shown as a evil black cat creature.
Confused about the dream this person continued to recite Surah Al-Baqarah every day as usual – but in the back of their mind they had unconscious intention of destroying the evil sorcerer in the dream and the evil jinn.
DO you know what happen the evil jinn was totally destroy and the evil sorcerer was seen in a dream later being flat out.
What makes this story more incredible the victim was a non-muslim, Allah (swt) within his infinite wisdom wanted to free this person from the evil sorcerer using this person who was reciting Surah -Al Baqarah everyday.
The moral of this story is reciting surah Al-Baqarah everyday will not help you and your family but will help others without you even knowing about it.
