Is this authentic?
“Recite Surah Al Baqarah, for [reciting it and practicing on it] is a blessing and abandoning it will be a cause of grief and regret, and [those involved in witchcraft] cannot confront it”
Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Umamah Al Bahili (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 804)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
