Shaytaan and evil jinn in the holy lands

Fatwaa ID: 820

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
Hope mufti is well

Is Shaitaan and evil jinn present in the holy lands of Makkah and Medina as well as in Masjid’s ?

Requesting duas

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The Shaytaan and the evil jinns are present in the holy lands of Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah. Likewise, they are present in the masjids. Many Ahaadith indicate their presence there such as the Hadith of straightening the rows in salaah and the Hadith of the Shaytaan running when he hears the adhaan and iqaamah. There is no evidence contrary to this as well.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
