[It is written in the 174th letter (of the first volume of Maktûbât) that this prayer is said against the haunting of genies. Muhammad Ma’thûm ‘rahmatullâhi ’alaih’ writes in his third letter of the second volume: “You should recite Lâ hawla walâ quwwata illâ billâh five hundred times with the salawât-i sherîfa a hundred times before and after it and make a du’â in order to get rid of problems and attain your wishes.”] At such times of trouble it is very useful to recite the two sûras of Mu’awwizatayn, that is, the two sûras beginning with Qula’ûdhu. We have been well and comfortable, may hamd be to Allâhu ta’âlâ always! “Alhamdu-li-l-lâhi dâiman wa ’alâ kulli hâl wa a’ûdhu bi-l-lâhi min hâl-i ahl-in-nâr.” I am too weak to write any longer. May Allâhu ta’âlâ not separate us and you from Muhammad Mustafâ’s religion! Wassalâm. 

[It is written in Tafsîr-i Mazharî, in the explanation of the eighty-eighth âyat of the Sûrat-ul-Anbiyâ that a hadîth-i sherîf says: “During times of sorrows and hardships recite the prayer of the Prophet Yûnus. Surely Allah will rescue you. The prayer is: Lâ ilâha illâ anta subhânaka innî kuntu minaz-zâlimîn.” A hadîth-i-sherîf quoted in the fifty-third chapter of the book Terghîb us-Salât reads as follows: “If a person, after getting up every morning, says the following prayer three times, no trouble or disaster will befall him until evening: Bismillâh-illedhî lâ yedhurru ma’asmihi shey’un fi-l-ardi wa lâ fi-s-semâ’ wahuwa-s-samî’ ul-’alîm.”
