Default Imam Ahmad Ordered the Jinn to Leave and They Responded

Found on


It is related that Imam Ahmad was sitting in his mosque. There came to him one of his companions from the caliph al-Mutawakil. The man said to Ahmad, “In the house of the commander of the Believers, there is a slave-girl who is possessed. He sent me to you for you to pray for her recovery.” Ahmad gave him a pair of wooden shoes and said, “Go to the house of the commander of the believers and sit at the head of the slave girl and say to the jinn, Ahmad has said to you, “Which do you prefer: leaving this slave-girl or being struck by these shoes seventy times?”

The man went with the shoes to the slave girl and he did as he was instructed. He heard from the tongue of the slave-girl, “Listening and obedience is for Ahmad. If he were to order us to leave Iraq, we would leave it. He obeys Allah and for whoever obeys Allah, everything is obedient to him.” It left the slave girl. She became better and afterwards she gave birth to children. Then Ahmad died and the jinn returned again to the slave girl. The commander called the same companion again to come. He came with the same shoes and said to the jinn, “Leave or else I will strike you with this shoe.” The jinn said, “I will not leave nor will I obey you but Ahmad ibn Hanbal obeyed Allah and we were ordered to obey him.”
