Using Bukhoor to Expel the Jinn | Shaykh Sālih bin Fawzān Al-Fawzān
What is the ruling for using bukhoor (incense) to drive away the jinn, and also for ar-Ruqiyyah?
Shaykh Sālih bin Fawzān Al-Fawzān:
This is forbidden. It is not permissible to use bukhoor to drive away the jinn, this has not been mentioned. The jinn are repelled by seeking refuge; seek refuge with Allah from them. Recite the Qur’an; they are driven out by the Qur’an. Remembrance; the remembrance of Allah (عز وجل) repels them. As for bukhoor, there is no basis for this, rather it is a bida’ah.
