How to know if a person is possessed by the jinn or affected by the evil eye


How can a person know if he has been possessed by the jinn or if he is affected by the evil eye?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Those who deal with ruqyah
as prescribed in Islam have mentioned some of the symptoms from which it may
be known whether a person has been possessed by the jinn or affected by the
evil eye. They are not definitive  symptoms and may vary in some cases, and
may be more or less in other cases. 

As for the symptoms of
possession, they are: 

Turning away and reacting
strongly when hearing the adhaan or Qur’aan

Fainting, seizures and falling
when Qur'aan is read over him

A lot of disturbing dreams

Being alone, keeping away from
people and behaving strangely

The devil who is dwelling in
him may speak when Qur'aan is read over him. 

As for the symptoms of
being affected by the evil eye, Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez al-Sadhaan (may Allaah
preserve him) said: 

If it is not a real
sickness, then the symptoms may take the following forms:  

Headaches that move from
one part of the head to another; yellow pallor in the face; sweating and
urinating a great deal; weak appetite; tingling, heat or cold in the limbs;
palpitations in the heart; pain in the lower back and shoulders; sadness and
anxiety; sleeplessness at night; strong reactions due to abnormal fears; a
lot of burping, yawning and sighing; withdrawal and love of solitude; apathy
and laziness; a tendency to sleep; health problems with no known medical

These signs or some of them
may be present according to the strength of the evil eye or the number of
people who put the evil eye on others. End quote.
