Salamu Alaikum.

I fear that several people may be putting the evil eye on one of my step-daughters (not muslim, but still) and i was wondering if there's any jewelry i can buy her for this.

I believe those Jewells are superstitious. The best thing to ward off evil eye is to keep woodu all the time and recite surah Al Falaq

^^^

Also you could use Taweez from certain verses of Quran (Ayatul Kursi, Falaq/Nas, etc)

As for jewellery..... I'm not sure about Aqeeq for women but Aqeeq, Yaqoot (ruby) and Firouz stones all have benefits.

Brothers, she said her step-daughter is not Muslim, so she can't wear Islamic jewelry if it has Qur'an engraved on it. 

@MuslimahAK You can ask Allah SWT to protect your child/children and step-child/step-children from harm and evil eye. Have faith that no matter what happens in life that Allah SWT can help you solve your problems.

what is taweez? just curious? 

Taweez is a small slip of paper containing words, numbers or letters in Arabic for good luck or blessings, that Imams <as> recommended to look at it or just keep it with yourself. Some people put the paper in a locket and wear it. Since it's Islamic you can't give it to your step-daughter who is not Muslim. There are some topics that mention taweez:

Do you have any sources to this?

Q948.     What is the relevance of geometrical designs containing Arabic alphabets and numbers [naqsh] recommended for looking or keeping with oneself by certain books?

A.           The Imams (a.s.) have prescribed certain beneficial talisman [taveez] which are either to be looked at or kept with oneself. But one should follow only those which have come down to us through reliable sources because many prevalent versions are forged by unreliable persons.

If you click on the link in the other topic, search the word naqsh on that webpage.

again, please dont speak if you dont have knowledge. there is an authentic hadith in abu dawud which says that all taweez are shirk.

The Prophet (s.a.w.s) taught Shirk to Hussein (a.s) and Hasan (a.s). Give me a break and show me that Hadith and the chain in it if you are truthful.

but for Abu Dawood, I do not know that that ahadith is verified authentic acvording to Shi'a standards. Maybe I can find a book or lecture on this tonight, inshaAllah.

He is making some big claims without proof. Taweez is not Shirk, the Prophet (s.a.w.s) taught how to make them and Hussein (a.s) and Hasan (a.s) used it! Shirk is setting partners with Allah, tell me how walking with a Taweez is shirk? Which is merely some piece of paper with a ayah or surah from the Quran, the Quran is from Allah. Ha! Taweez is not shirk, if it is shirk then we may as well dont walk even with Qur'an app on cellphone !

Wa Aleikum Salaam,

While in state of Wudhu, recite often Surat Ihklas, Surat al Falaq, Surat An-Nas and Surat al-Kafiruun and Ask Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى to protect them from evil of an envier and guide them.

He can't give link to that. He probably takes Hadiths from Ikrimah and Muawiyah. This people drive me nuts!

abu dawud 3883 authenticated by albani: 

Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

Zaynab, the wife of Abdullah ibn Mas'ud, told that Abdullah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying: spells, charms and love-potions are polytheism.

I asked: Why do you say this? I swear by Allah, when my eye was discharging I used to go to so-and-so, the Jew, who applied a spell to me. When he applied the spell to me, it calmed down. Abdullah said:

That was just the work of the Devil who was picking it with his hand, and when he uttered the spell on it, he desisted. All you need to do is to say as the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to say: Remove the harm, O Lord of men, and heal. Thou art the Healer. There is no remedy but Thine which leaves no disease behind.

sunan nasai 5067 authenticated by zubair ali zai/darussalam:

Ruwaifi' bin Thabit said:
"The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: 'O Ruwaifi', you may live for a long time after me, so tell the people that whoever ties up his beard, or twists it, or hangs an amulet, or cleans himself (after relieving himself) with animal dung or bones, Muhammad has nothing to do with him.'"

musnad ahmad 16969 authenticated by albani:

 It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.”

i provided my link to the references on the basis of which i made my claim. now you made a very serious claim that the prophet pbuh taught his grandchildren a.s. how to make taweez. care to back it up with evidence? 

i dont have to EXPLAIN it to you how taweez is shirk, even though i can, because the hadith, words of the prophet pbuh, say that it is shirk.

keeping the quran on phone is to recite it. quran is meant to be recited. otherwise there is shifa in honey too. but im sure you dont go around with a jar of honey hanging in your neck, do you? 

btw, i dont have that big of an issue with shi'a brothers here believing that taweez is permissible as long as they have hadith in shia literature to back it up. that is a larger issue. my issue here is with people blindly following their nafs and desires instead of the deen of Allah based on authentic sources.

Those hadiths are speaking about charms and talismans used by the pagan meccans which was made of animal bones. Those are not talking about Taweez, the Prophet (s.a.w.s) taught how to make Taweez and Hussein (as) and Hassan (as) used it. Please go ask a real scholar and not some Salafiyyah propaganda. And you didn't provided chains, you just doing taqleed on Al Albani grading. Wallahi go ask a real scholar who follow Hanafi or Maliki madhab or any other madhab which is not Barbahari Islam.

I'll crush your argument like the Glass House that the salafiyyah is. Prepare to get squashed -

The defenition of a Ta’weez is simply ‘a written Du'a,’ which is from the Qur’an or Ahadith, and is for the one who cannot read or has not memorized that particular Du'a. It is written on a piece of paper and is worn around the neck.

 We, the Ahle Sunnah believe, to wear a Taweez around the neck is permissible if the du’a contained in it is written from the Qur’an or Ahadith. Prophet Muhammad [May Allah bless him and grant him peace] used to recite du’a and then blew onto the sick person. The companions of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] also did this and the companions wrote the du’a on a piece of paper and placed it around the neck of that person if they could not read it. Of course, the du’as from the Qur’an and Ahadith have the power to heal the sick. Some people say, if you wear the Taweez you are commiting shirk, but we will prove, with the help of Allah Almighty, that it is permissible to wear a Taweez.

The Qur’an has the power of healing

 Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an,

“…We send down in Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers…”

(Surah Bani Israeel Verse 82).

 Qadi Shawkani writes, if the Qur’an’s du’as are recited and blown on the sick, they will be cured. When the non-believers recite the Qur’an, their blasphemic disease will be cured. (Tafsir Fathul Qadir under Verse 82 Surah Bani Israeel).

Proof of wearing the Taweez

 Hafidhh ibn Kathir and Qadi Shawkani write:

 Amr Ibn Shu’aib RadhiAllahu ‘anhu says, that ‘RasoolAllah (Sallallahu’ alaihi wa sallam) taught my Father and grandFather a Du'a which we would read before going to sleep, to protect us from fear and anguish. We told our elder children to recite this Du'a before going to sleep as well. But for those children who were not yet literate, we would write it and then put it around their necks.

 [Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal vol.2, Abu Dawud in Chapter of Medicine, Tafsir by Hafidhh Ibn Kathir of verse 97 of Surah Al-Mu’minoon and Qadi Shawkaani in Fath-ul-Qadeer under the same verse]

It is permissible to read du’a and blow upon the sick

 Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim write:

 When a person who was sick or in some distress they would go to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] who would then place his hand on the area of the pain and recite a du’a and then blow onto him.
 (Bukhari, Muslim chap on Tibb).

 Imam Muslim writes:

 When the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] was ill for the last time, angel Jibreel [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] came and recited du’a and blew on to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]. (Muslim chapter on Tibb)

 Imam Muslim writes:

 Aisha (Radiall hu anhua) said when the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] was ill the last time, she recited Surah Al-Falaq and Surah Al-Naas and then blew on to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]’s hands. The Prophet then blew this onto his own face and body because his hands had more blessing then Aisha’s (Radiall hu anha).

 (Muslim chap on Tibb)

 From the above narrations, it proves that to blow after reciting du’as onto the sick is Sunnah and the more pious the person is, the more healing power he has because he is blessed more than the less pious.

 Hafidhh ibn Taymiyyah writes:

 It is permissible to [to recite du’as, and then] blow upon the sick in Islam, but the words must be from the Qur’an or Ahadith. If the words are not then it is not permissible.
 [Al-Tawasul chapter on Blowing onto the Sick by Hafidh ibn Taymiyyah]

 Q) Some people say, “How is it allowed to blow dua’s onto the sick, when some Hadith say this is forbidden?”

Allama Sa’idi has written the answer to this question in great detail he’s also put the opinion of all the other great scholars, and we will present this here.

 Allama Gulam Rasool Sa’idi writes:

 Imam Nawawi Rahmatullah in Sharh Muslim states: ‘there are two types of Ahadith concerning blowing. (Reciting a Du'a and then blowing onto a person.) One of the types is transmitted in Bukhari: ‘There will be people who will enter Paradise without any questioning, who have never been blown upon’. Imam Muslim Rahmatullah has also written a hadith in support of those who do not ask to be blown upon. Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah in the chapter on Tibb (Medicine) has written Du'as, which our Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] recited when doing ‘Damm’ (Reciting a Du'a and then blowing onto a person). Imam Muslim Rahmatullah states in the Chapter on Virtues of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] that: when our Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] was ill, the Angel Jibreel came to him and performed the blowing. The above types of Ahadith apparently seem to contradict each other but in reality there is no contradiction.

 The former type of Hadith refers to the prohobition of having read something that is not from the Qur’an and Sunnah [ie, something that has pictures, diagrams and words not from the Qur’an] and then blow upon someone. The latter types of Ahadith which permit Damm refer to those Kalimaat (words or verses) which have been taught by the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace]. In the same way as above there are two types of Ahadith concerning Ta’weez. There are many narrations that forbid the use of Ta’weez and also many permitting their use. Imam Qurtubi Rahmatullah wrote in detail about both types of Ahadith concerning Ta'weez: ‘The Ta’weez that are forbidden are those Ta’weez from the time of ignorance, those which are Satanic and contain an element of Shirk'. (Mantar, Voodoo and Magic etc.) The Ta’weez, which are permitted are those written with Du'as, which are evident from Qur’an and Ahadith only. Here are the narrations, which show that it is permitted for a person to put a Ta’weez around his/her neck.

 Allama Alusi Hanafi in his Tafsir of the Qur’an writes: According to Imam Malik Rahmatullah ‘It is permitted to put around the neck the Ta’weez written with the name of Allah? Imam Baqir also stated that it is permitted to put such a Ta’weez around the neck of a child. [Rooh-ul-Ma’ani, chapter 15" under verse 97 of Surah Mu'minoon]

 Allama Shami Hanafi Rahmatullah writes:

 It is permitted to write a Ta’weez and put it around the neck. He further adds that it would be better if a person recites the Du'as taught by the Prophet (Sallallahu’ alaihi wa sallam.) But if a person cannot read or is too young to recite then it is permitted for that person to put it around the neck
 [Rud-ul-Mukhtar chapter Qirat, Sharah Sahih Muslim chapter on Tib by Allama Sa’idi].


 To conclude it can be said that those verses that oppose the Qur’an, Shari’ah, or the Sunnah are forbidden to read and also forbidden to put around the neck. But as for the Du'as and verses from the Qur’an and Sunnah it is permitted to be written and put around the neck of a small child or an illiterate or a sick person.
