Assalam mualaikum Wahramatullahi wabaraktu. I was on the website Islamqa and I was looking at the question. Is it true that when u read surah Jinn you see a jinn?the person also asks how do you get one? Moulana Qamruz Zaman replys no this is not true to the first question to my understanding. If you go on Google search Syed Faisal Abbas Sheraz Pak amliyat he mentions that if you read surah jinn for so many days you can control a jinn and he advises to learn from a peer. Also on Google search Peer Iqbal Qureshi mentions the same thing. A friend of mine when I was in my teenage years also told me the same thing. can you please clarify? I also have another question about the jinn that I'm confused about I don't want to confuse and put doubts in you. Do you give me permission to ask you the next question yes or no? I have no intention to control a jinn I just want clear this doubt. Jazakallah khair

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

That is not true. There is no basis for this in the Shariah.

Jinns can’t be your friends they are deceitful in nature. No human can control jinn except Sulaiman (عليه السلام)

Allah says,

قَالَ رَبِّ ٱغۡفِرۡ لِى وَهَبۡ لِى مُلۡكً۬ا لَّا يَنۢبَغِى لِأَحَدٍ۬ مِّنۢ بَعۡدِىٓ‌ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلۡوَهَّابُ

He said, “O my Lord, forgive me, and bless me with a kingdom that will not be available to anyone after me. Surely, You are the Bountiful.”(Saad:34)

And Allah knows best
