Announcing the Adhan upon seeing a Spirit or an Apparition from the Jinn – Imam Ibn Baaz

Imam Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah):

It is permissible to announce the Adhan upon seeing a spirit or an apparition from the Jinn as related in the Hadith:

When the Jinn try to mislead you (by taking different shapes), hasten to pronounce Adhan (call to Prayer)” [#01].

If someone sees the Jinn, they should announce Adhan, because it rebukes them, as does the remembrance of Allah
