    I mean as in a bad shadow, not like a jinn or anything like that, the reason why i am asking is because my sis in law told me that my big bro (her husband) has a shadow within him, 24/7, thats he is possessed.

    The shadow inside him is making him do all the bad things he is doing and she is also saying that it is not his fault, but i just cant seem to believe it.

    Anyone?

    Short Answer is no.

    Long answer is , if he is doing evil things then if he has a choice in the matter, He is acting criminally.

    If he isnt aware of what he is doing and it is a recent thing and he appears "Possessed" then he is suffering from a psychiatric illness and should see a doctor ASAP.

    SHADOW = SHAYTAN


    What else could it be ?

    I must say that he has only brought it on to himself. ]

    Would you all agree that shaytaan is working at his best, and shaytaan only attacts those who ignore the words of Allah SWT meaning that they have no eemaan whatsoever?

    If he actually makes the effort to stop acting like he is the innocent one and read his salaah and do constant dhikr then maybe his behaviour change?

    I dunno where to start, what he has done to me is unforgivble and there is no way i would forgive him for what he did to me. I have so muc anger in me and when i see him my blood boils,

    I've seen a couple of Jinn exorcism videos. I'm convinced they can possess you. Maybe you should consult a pro in the field of Jinn exorcism?

    You can be possessed by evil. But never heard of an in-shadow. - Seems like he needs a good few slaps, as he maybe using it as an excuse for his 'bad behaviour' we can all blame other forces when we want to get away with things. To be on the safe side, I'd get the Exorcist In.

    Typical Islamic exorcism. The way a Jinn effects a person is always different. Of all the 3 videos I've seen, this is the least freaky. In the other two, the man had become paralysed by the Jinn as she (a female called Ashreetha) had fallen in love with him and didn't want him to get married. In the other, a Malaysian woman had gone crazy and was attacking her family members, insulting them, etc.

    I don't believe there is anything like a "shadow" that affects a person.

    Jinn possession and black magic are the only two things I know of (in the sense that you are asking about) that can alter a person's behaviour for the worse.

    Salaam, sorry for the delay.

    Well some maulvi in pakistan or whatever that person is said that he has a shadow in him 24/7 and that bad shadow is what makes him do bad things.

    Does Allah SWT ever burden His servents more then they can handle?

    Is getting a taweez done commiting Shirk?

    the thing is though, no such thing as jinn possession exists, no daleel for it, or the methods used for 'extraction'. sure it is a wide spread belief, but not based on the prophet's sayings or the qur'an.
    and getting taweez could be a form of shirk, what do you mean specificly by taweez though?
    best he see's a psychiatrist as barney said. that would help much more than an 'extractor'.

    I agree with you bro, these pakis exaggerate alot man, they dont think out of the box, they think oh he must be possessed this this and that, it gets very annoying. He wont accept he has a problem.

    I mean like go to a maulvi and get a taweez done, what you wear around your neck and write some arabic numbers on paper, put it in water and drink it.

    right. if it has anything other than qur'an, or dua, like numbers or symbols it is shirk. actually some scholars say even if it has qur'an or dua in it, it is still shirk if you believe the taweez itself protects you.

    yes, but you mentioned the hadeeth out of context.
    إن الشيطان ليجري من ابن آدم مجرى الدم فضيقوا مجاريه بالجوع

    and

    إنّ الشيطان ليجري من ابن آدم مجرى الدم، وما منكم من أحد إلاّ وله شيطان. قيل: ولا أنت يا رسول الله؟ قال: ولا أنا إلاّ أنّ الله تعالى أعانني عليه فأسلم


    nether hadeeth mentions possession, else the prophet was possessed too?

    fairness has nothing to do with it brother, either it is proven using daleel, or it is not.
    people before us couldn't understand what psychiatric disorders were, so they attributed them to possession, there is no reason for such myths to continue, let alone associating islam with them.
