Those who aim to master the practice of kanuragan (invincibility) and kadigdayaan (invulnerability) often use mantras to enhance their physical and spiritual performance. However, reciting mantras also serves a practical purpose, namely to induce mystical powers of protection. Especially practitioners of traditional Indonesian martial arts (pencak silat) are eager to chant specific mantras that can help them protect against attacks and fights involving sharp objects such as knives, daggers, etc. The following mantra is said to be very effective for this particular purpose.
Assalamu ‘alaa manittaba’a bilaa imlaa-in.
Assalamu ‘alaa man-ittaba’a bilaa imdaadin.
Assalamu ‘alaikum yaa miftaahu bilaa imdaadihi.
