Duas and supplications to seek protection from the evil eye

The Quran and the Ahadith of the prophet have clearly explained the harmful effects of evil eye (al-ain), sihr (magic), jealousy, and other such ailments. Their detrimental effects are frequently referred to both in the Quran and the Ahadith of the prophet. The sad part is that many of us many not even know if we are affected by such evils and go about living our lives with the harmful effects affecting our lives. Al-Bazzaar narrated a hadith with a hasan isnaad from Jaabir (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) had said (in part of the hadith) that a certain portion of his ummah dies because of the effects of the evil eye.”

Almost all scholars agree that the evil eye is real and is proven both by Islamic teachings and by real life experiences. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes (through hatred)” [al-Qalam 68:51]

How to Use Ruqya?

healing quran ruqyah shifa

As a cure for such evils, Allah has told us to use the words of the Quran. Such a treatment, also referred to as Ruqyah, uses Allah’s words from the Quran and prayers both from the Quran and the Ahadith to seek protection from and to treat a person. Allah says in the Quran, “And We send down from the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe…” [Quran 17:82]

Unfortunately, many Muslims today either don’t make use of such protection from the Quran or get involved in the use of lucky charms and amulets, the use of which is considered Shirk [associating others with Allah] and thus pushes one outside the boundaries of Islam. We should understand that carrying amulets and charms for the purpose of protecting oneself against the evil eye and witchcraft is completely forbidden in Islam. The prophet said, “Whoever wears an amulet has associated others with Allah (shirk).” [Narrated by Ahmad (16781); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (492).] Ahmad (17440) also narrated that ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say: “Whoever wears an amulet, may Allah never fulfill his wish and whoever wears a seashell, may Allah never protect him from what he fears.” [Hadeeth classed as hasan by al-Arna’oot in his commentary on al-Musnad.]

    This is a powerful article and it can be usefully utilized in our personal life. If possible the whole duas as mentioned in order therein should be performed atleast once in a week so that all the bad effect of evil eye and sihr are kept away from the person who recites these and from his entire family on which he can do this ruqyah. May Allah SWT keep us under his protection. Regards, Mushtaq

Everything should be sought from ALLAH, THE ALMIGHTY!!!
