Is Taweez Permissible In Islam?

Mu’meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah’s peace, mercy,, and Blessings be upon each of you)

One of our brothers/sisters asked this question:

To what extent is use to what extent is the use “taweez” and amulets acceptable in Islam. My mom recently gave these taweez. In Islam if I am right the idea of”evil eye” is present. It is quite possible for an individual to be under the influence of this “evil eyes.” What I’m trying to find out is whether these “tawwez” is acceptable or not. Concerning the evil eye, I am sure that Allah protects me. However, Allah’s Prophet(SAW) was under the spell of evil eye. To break the spell , Prophet(SAW) used the Quran to remove the spell. Do you know of a option I can follow to save myself from this fate. My family members are able to try and destroy my family using black magic. Can you please refer somehting in Quran which can aid me.

Please contact us as soon as you can.


Evil Eye black magic Amulet

To the glory of Allah we praise Allah We ask for His assistance and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah has a hand on cannot mislead anyone or lead anyone to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none (no idol, no individual who is dead, no grave, not a prophet No Imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship other than Allah Alone. And we acknowledge to the fact that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Your Concern: In what degree does the use or use of “taweez” (also known as amulets) permissible in Islam.

The Messenger of Allah (saws) strictly forbidden the believers to wear any kind of taaweedh or amulets on any part of their body. Anybody who wears an amulet, taaweedh, or taaweed, starts seeking his trust and support from this taaweedh instead of placing his complete life and faith on God, who is the Lord of the Worlds!

The best advice is to worship, invoke, and believe and keep ones full and faith in nothing but Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Heavens and earth and all that exists in between!

If a person who is a religious believer, and has a firm belief in Allah and in Allah’s Last Day, seeks any protection in any aspect of the world, then all that he has to do is take refuge with Allah and ask Him for everything he needs. Since Allah Alone is the sole owner of All Strength and Power; and no harm or no trouble can come to anyone without the approval of Allah Subhanah. Thus, a person who believes in Allah Subhanah must make a complete and total Trust in none but Allah Subhanah Alone.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 160:

If Allah assists you, no one can overpower you. If He forsakes you who is next to help you? If you trust in Allah then let believers place their trust.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 3:

and put your trust and trust in Allah Alone; and enough is Allah as a Disposer of the affairs.

Allah has revealed in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:

Say: “Nothing will happen to us, unless Allah has set for us to do: He is our Protector” and to Allah trust the believers. their trust.

Uqbah ibn’Amir says in his book that Messengers of Allah (saws) stated: “If anyone wears an amulet (taaweedh), may Allah not aid him in fulfilling his wish. If anyone wears a sea-shell around his neck, may Allah give him no peace.”

Written by Ahmad and Al-Hakim.

An amulet (tamimah, taaweedkh, etc.) is the string of shells, or beads that the Arabs put on their children’s necks believing that it would shield against the evil eye. Islam has completely eliminated this , as well as other superstitious practices. It was the messenger of Allah (saws) identified it as shirk in its most explicit form as well as invoked the curse of Allah upon those who wore a taaweedh in search of its protection.

It is reported from Ibn Mas’ud that one time, when he walked into his home when he was there, his wife was carrying a knotted item around her neck. He took it away then broke it. He then remarked that the family of Abdullah is now so arrogant that they associate with Allah the ones for whom He did not give any authority.’ I have seen Allah’s Messenger Allah (saws) telling us: ‘Verily, incantations, amulets and love charms constitute acts that are the shirk (associating divinities with Allah).’ People said: ‘O Abu Abdullah! We’ve heard of incantations and amulets, but what is a love-related charm? (altawlah )’?’ He replied: ‘It is an esoteric formula that women used to win their husbands’ affection’.” (Related by Al-Hakim along with Ibn Hibban).

Imran ibn Hasin reports of how the Messenger of Allah (saws) observed an individual wearing a bracelet made of copper on his arm. He (saws) said to him: ‘Woe be to you!’ What’s the matter? The man said”I’m suffering from weakness (al-wahinah).’ (Al-wahinah is a disease that causes pain in the shoulders and hands. A man was wearing bracelet of copper believing it would relieve his pain and suffering). The Prophet (saws) disallowed him from wearing it as the man believed it was an amulet. The Prophet (saws) told him: “It will give you nothing but hurt. Toss it away. If you had died wearing it, you’d not have been saved! (ie. you would’ve died in the midst of the shirk, the sin that is unforgivable.” (Narrated by Ahmad)

Isa ibn Hamza said: I went to see Abdullah ibn Hakim and his face was red due to high fever. I asked Abdullah: Why don’t I use an amulet to help you?’ He said: ‘We seek refuge in Allah and are protected from this. Propheticly speaking, the Messenger of Allah (saws) declared: “Whoever wears anything as an amulet will be given with it”. (Narrated by the Abu Daw’ud)

Your Question Answer: In Islam If I’m right, the concept of the evil eye exists. It is quite possible for a man to be subject to this “evil eye.”

Sahih Muslim Hadith 5427 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas

Allah’s messenger (saws) stated”The influence of nazar (evil eye) is a reality; if there was anything that could predate the Qadr (destiny) it is the effect of an evil eye.

Beloved Brother, the influence of nazar is actually a fact as stated and declared by no other than Allah’s Messenger Allah (saws) And Allah is our witness. Every phrase spoken by the Messenger of Allah (saws) can be only the truth.

However, it is important to know and believe it is true that the evil eye does not have any power on its own, nor can it cause harm to anyone in the least without the precise Will and permission that Allah Subhanah has granted. So one should not worry about this evil eye but rather take a stand against Allah Their Lord, and keep their faith and put their trust to Him All By Himself.

If all the evil-eyes of the world were to get together and harm anyone, they wouldn’t be able to even accomplish this without the permission of Allah Subhanah. all power and strength is in the hands of none other than the Lord Most High, Most Exalted.

Your Question: Can you refer me to something in Quran that can help me.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4563 Narrated by Abu Sa’id al-Khudri

Muhammad, Allah’s messenger (saws) used to seek refuge in Allah to protect himself from Jinn and evil gaze in human beings until his Mu’awwidhatan (113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas) were revealed, following which he used these and left all other sources.

Dear and beloved Brother, if one fears anyone from any angle whatever, the only recourse or prayer to be used is to be able to recite the 113th Surah Al-Falaq and the 114th Surah An-Naas and thus seek refuge with Allah Subhanah from any and all evil ever approaching them and it is expected that Allah Subhanah will shield them from all attack.

After one has found refuge with Allah Subhanah they must maintain their total trust and belief in the Strength and Power of Allah Alone, and not be worried about threat of harm coming from any magical, jinn, or the evil eye or other aspect of the un-seen! Allah Subhanah Alone is our protector and helper.

If one is faithful, follows and adheres to the direction and orders by Allah along with His messenger (saws) then one is assured of not getting misled. However, if one believes, obeys and adheres to any other direction different from the guidance provided by Allah as well as His Messenger (saws) One can be certain that they will be led into a trap.

Everything written in the Bible that is of truth and benefits is due solely to Allahs assistance and guidance, and all errors are solely my fault. Allah is the only one who knows best, and is the sole Source of Strength.

Your brother and best wishes in Islam.
