The effects of being struck by the evil eye may be divided into two categories:
1 – Deadly effect. This type of evil eye brings rapid results, such as killing a man or livestock, or destroying buildings and crops, and so on. There is no remedy in such cases.
2 – Non-deadly effect. The remedy for this is divided into three categories:
- Repelling the Evil eye, before it strikes.
- Curing the evil eye after it has happened.
- Treating the evil eye with Ruqyah and Zikr (Recitation of specific Surahs of the Quran).
Each type will be discussed individually in the next articles. Insha'Allaah.
Infected things by Evil Eye
Remember even if your pet or plantations or farm or land or house is suspected of being under the effect of ‘Evil Eye’, the recited water should be regularly sprayed on them all daily till things look normal.
Facts about Amulets
A tradition wide spread for a long time, since the fall of Iblees till this hour. What are Amulets?
Amulets were things that the Arabs used to tie onto their children to protect them against the evil eye, or so they claimed, since pre-Islamic times.
A Hadith narrated by Musnad Ahmad, classed sahih by al-Albaani that the Messenger of Allah said:
"Whoever ties on an amulet has committed Shirk"
Refer, Zaad Al-Ma'aad, 4/170. Or al-Silsilah as-Sahihah, (492).
Imaam Ahmad collected a Hadith Narrated from Uqbah (r.a) (one of the companions of the Prophet (swt)): that once a group of men approached Allaah's Messenger to give their allegiance to him, and he accepted the oath from nine of them but refused to accept it from one. When they asked him why he refused their companion's oath, he replied, "Verily, he is wearing an amulet." The man who was wearing the amulet put his hand in his cloak, pulled the amulet off, broke it, and then made the oath. The Prophet (swt) then said, "Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk."
With this said, binding amulets, bracelets and necklaces adorned with blue beads and metal pieces of the shape of a crescent, or animal teeth or bones etc "with the thought that they will keep one safe from Evil and bring good and bad fortune" is without a doubt – Shirk. It was commonly known among the Arabs of the pre-Islamic times that the jinn/demons fear the wolves, and that is why people would hunt for wolves and get their teeth/bones to seek refuge in them.
