Evil Eye

Evil Eye
An ‘evil-eye’ is when someone looks at the grace and favor bestowed by the Lord Most Gracious upon another with evil intentions. Allah Says in His Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2: What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom. Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17: If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things Brothers and Sisters rest absolutely assured that other than Allah Taala no one and no thing has the power to harm or benefit anyone in the unseen’! The ‘evil-eye’ by itself does not have the power to harm anyone in the least but it is possible that the person who is envious and jealous and holds evil intentions in his heart only because the Lord has bestowed some favors on another, might say or do something which might bring about some harm. In the pre-Islamic days of ignorance, when the pagans amongst the Arabs feared the effects of an ‘evil-eye’, in their ignorance, they would perform many a rite and ritual to ward off its evil….like wear amulets, tie their beards, or wear a string around their neck, or cleanse themselves with animal dung or bones, etc. The Messenger of Allah Taala absolutely and totally forbade the believers to perform such useless and unlawful acts to ward of the expected evil Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 36 Narrated by Ruwayfi’ ibn Thabit The Messenger of Allah Taala said: You may live for a long time after I am gone, Ruwayfi so tell people that if anyone ties his beard, or wears round his neck a string to ward off the evil eye, or cleanses himself with animal dung or bone, Muhammad Peace be upon him has nothing to do with him. The Messenger of Allah Taala guided the believers to keep their full trust and faith in the Supreme Power and Ability of Allah Taala Alone, and absolutely forbade the believers to do or perform any rite or ritual to ward off supposedly expected evil and the Prophet saws guided the believers that if they feared the approaching of any evil from any quarter of the ‘unseen’, to seek refuge in their Lord and recite the Muawwidaat 113th Surah Al-Falaq and the 114th Surah An-Naas , for that would more than suffice the believers.

  • Nina Hanson Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 160: If Allah helps you none can overcome you: if He forsakes you who is there after that that can help you? In Allah then let believers put their trust. Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51: Say: Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector and on Allah let the believers put their trust. Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1019 Narrated by AbuSa’id al-Khudri The Prophet Peace be upon him used to seek protection against the Jinn and the evil eye till Surahs al-Falaq and an-Nas 113th and 114th Surahs of the Quran were revealed. After they were revealed he saws stuck to them and discarded everything beside them. If one does any of the self-invented and useless rituals like revolving money around one’s head seven times, or burn something, or revolve something, or burn chilies, or perform any other rite or ritual in their effort to ward of the evil-eye, etc. then they would be held guilty in the Court of Allah Taala for following an innovation in the least, or following a rite of the pagans and committing an act of ‘shirk’ at it’s worst! Thus all one needs to do when one fears that one who is instigated by their ‘evil eyes’ to do or say something which might result in some harm, or one fears any harm from any quarter of the unseen , one should seek the protection and refuge in Allah Taala Alone by being constant in one’s recitation of the 113th and the 114th Surahs of the Holy Quran. It is expected that the Merciful Lord would protect them from any and all evil, In Sha Allah.
  • Nina Hanson Muslim has to protect himself against the devils among the evil jinn and mankind, by having strong faith in Allah and by putting his trust in Him and seeking refuge with Him and beseeching Him, reciting the prayers for protection narrated from the Prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, reciting al-Muawwadhatayn the last two surahs of the Quran Surat al-Ikhlas, Surat al-Fatihah, and ayat al-Kursi. Duas for protection include the following: Aoodhu bi kalimat-illah il-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from the evil of that which He has created. A’oodhu bi kalimat-illah il-tammati min ghadabihi wa iqabihi, wa min sharri ibadihi wa min hamazat al-shayateeni wa an yahduroon I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from His wrath and punishment, from the evil of His slaves and from the evil promptings of the devils and from their presence. And one may recite the words of Allah: Hasbi Allahu la ilaha illa huwa, alayhi tawakkaltu wa huwa Rabb ul-‘arsh il-‘azeem Allaah is sufficient for me. La ilaha illa Huwa none has the right to be worshipped but He) in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne
  • Nina Hanson The Evil Eye is also known as Ayn-al-hasad’ in Arabic, or Chashm-e-budd’ in Urdu, Buri nazar in Hindi and Nazar in Turkish. These terms refer to a gaze from one person to another which may cause affliction or ill-luck to the other. These gazes are often associated with envy, jealousy or even extreme admiration. The gaze can be intentional or unintentional. It was narrated that Ubaid bin Rifa’ah Az-Zuraqi said: Asma bint Umaish said, O Allah’s Messenger The children of Ja’far have been afflicted by the evil eye, shall I recite Ruqyah’ for them? He said, “Yes, for if anything were to overtake the Divine Decree, it would be the evil eye Hadith No. 3510, Chapters on Medicine, Sunan Ibn Majah, Vol. 4; Hadith No. 2059, Chapters on medicine, Jami’ At-Tirmidhi, Vol. 4
