Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
With the Will of Allah Almighty, a family from Birmingham, United Kingdom, visited Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi in regards to their daughter and some unprovoked illness that she had began to suffer from. They stated that their daughter had started to suffer from many health problems but it had all come on all of a sudden without a warning or previous symptoms.
The symptoms that the young woman was suffering from were the following:
- Seeing abnormal shadows
- Unknown fear
The young woman was taken to the doctors and then visited a psychiatrist, either by referral or by free will. The psychiatrist informed her parents that she had mental health issues but they refused to believe such a thing or that such a thing could have appeared out of thin air and sought other explanations and other treatment than of that which would be prescribed for mental health.
When the family bought their daughter into the presence of Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi, he said that their daughter’s problems had been inherited from the school that she attends because that school is occupied by spirits/jinns that are the cause of her symptoms, and that there was no mental health issue and nothing to worry about. The noble Shaykh said that there had been another case that involved a young woman with the same symptoms within a school and how she was also cured. This brought relief to the family as they did not need to take the treatment of an illness that wasn’t there (mental health). Some spiritual healing was performed that relived that family of their worries. Some time had passed, and Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi came to know that both young women that got treated actually attended the same school.
The all girls school knew about the illness of both girls which resulted in their high absence rate. Once they had seen both young women cured and their attendance had increased, they were curious to find out what happened with each case. Having inquired, they realised they both had visited Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi, which was not a doctor rather a man of God.
It came to the attention of the school council that many other young women had also began to complain and suffer from anxiety, headaches and seeing shadows. They were given the contact details of Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi and decided to call and requested an anticipated meeting. Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi attended the meeting accompanied by a Khalifa and was informed that they had been invited so that the school council could understand more about the situation that had taken place with their other two pupils as it had begun to take place with other young women. The school council went to explain that the situation in which the school and pupils were in was a growing concern, threatening the well being of their students. Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi informed them that the school was occupied by jinns/spirits which was the cause of their problem. The school headmaster became convinced that this was the case as pupils had also been reporting that they could see shadows moving. The school asked if it was possible for him to remove the spirits/jinns to relieve them and their students from this misery at a later date.
The noble Shaykh went to the school on a certain weekend, he recited prayers and with the Will of Allah Almighty, resolved the issue. After that day, the school council reported positive feedback saying:
“There is a sense of tranquillity and more of a calm feeling in the school, the young women feel much better and the attendance rate is increasing by the day.”
The name of the school, the two pupils, the names of their family members and the names of the members of the school council have been hidden to respect their request of confidentiality.
