How to protect oneself against the evil eye

How to protect oneself against the evil eye
In the recent years I feel I have been struck with it.  Allhamdullila that allah has given me attractive features but see I don't want my life to be in turmoil because of it.  See not all people praise Allah for the things they admire especially the kaafirs.  Is there anyway a young woman can protect herself from the evil eye without veiling her face?  Can wearing Quranic scripture save you from the evil eye?  And what about wearing necklaces and charms in the shape of an eye or hands because I heard these can protect you and are they haram? My life is so much better now than before because before I did not practice islam although I always was a muslim, so does this mean that because I am a better muslim the evil eye, if I was unfortunate enough to have it hit me has disappeared from my soul or do I have to have Quran read over me so it will leave me. How can I save and protect myself from happening to me again?


be to Allaah.

You should know that hijaab is obligatory, and no one
has the right to choose the rulings that they like and leave those for
which they feel no inclination, because Allaah says (interpretation of the

“O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islam (by
obeying all the rules and regulations of the Islamic religion) and follow
not the footsteps of Shaytaan (Satan). Verily, he is to you a plain
enemy”[al-Baqarah 2:208] 

Ibn Katheer said: “Allaah commands His believing
slaves to adhere to all the rulings and laws of Islam, to follow all the
commandments and heed all the prohibitions.” (Tafseer Ibn Katheer,

The believing women are forbidden to show any of
their beauty to non-mahrams. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“… and not to show off their adornment except
only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way,
or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, headcover,
apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies,
faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their
husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons,
or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or
their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in
Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male
servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine
sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of
their adornment. And all of you beg Allaah to forgive you all, O
believers, that you may be successful” [al-Noor 24:31] 

Obeying Allaah’s
command to observe hijaab will protect you from the evil eye by Allaah’s
Leave in this world, and will protect you from the punishment of Allaah in
the Hereafter. 

With regard to wearing
Qur’aanic verses or certain shapes, Imaam Ahmad narrated in his Musnad
from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever wears an amulet, may Allaah not fulfil his need, and whoever
wears seashells [for protection from the evil eye] may Allaah not protect
him.” According to another report, a group came to the Messenger of
Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and he
accepted the bay’ah [allegiance] of nine of them, but not from
one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah
of nine and not from this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.”
Then he took it in his hand and broke it, and the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) accepted his bay’ah. He said,
“Whoever wears an amulet is guilty of shirk.” (From Fataawa
al-‘Ayn wa’l-Hasad, p. 277) 

With regard to dealing
with the evil eye and hasad (destructive envy), there is no doubt that
when a person is close to Allaah, always remembering Him (dhikr) and
reading Qur’aan, he is less likely to be affected by the evil eye and
other kinds of harm from the devils of mankind and the jinn. The Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge with
Allaah for himself, and the greatest means of seeking refuge that is
available to the Muslim is reading the Book of Allaah, above all the Mi’wadhatayn
(the last two Soorahs of the Qur’aan, al-Falaq and al-Naas),
Soorat al-Faatihah and Aayat al-Kursiy [al-Baqarah 2:255]. 

Among the saheeh
du’aa’s for refuge that have been narrated from the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) are: 

bi kalimaat Allaah al-taammaati min sharri maa khalaq (I seek refuge
in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of that which He has

(Narrated by Muslim, al-Dhikr
wa’l-Du’aa, 4881) 

It was narrated that
Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said: “The Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge with
Allaah for al-Hasan and al-Husayn. He said: ‘Your father [i.e.,
Ibraaheem] used to seek refuge with Allaah for Ismaa’eel and Ishaaq with
these words: A’oodhu bi kalimaat Allaah al-taammah min kulli
shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli ‘aynin laammah (I seek refuge in
the perfect words of Allaah, from every devil and every poisonous reptile,
and from every bad eye).’”(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, Ahaadeeth
al-Anbiyaa’, 3120). 

With regard to the
meaning of laammah (translated here as “bad”), al-Khattaabi
said: “What is meant here is every disease or harm that a person may
suffer such as insanity or mental disturbance.” 

It was narrated from
Abu Sa’eed that Jibreel came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) and said: “O Muhammad, are you ill?” He said,
“Yes.” He said, “Bismillaahi
arqeeka min kulli shay’in yu’dheeka, min sharri kulli nafsin aw
‘aynin haasid Allaahu yashfeek, bismillaahi arqeek (In the name of
Allaah I perform ruqyah for you, from everything that is harming you, from
the evil of every soul or envious eye may Allaah heal you, in the name of
Allaah I perform ruqyah for you).” (Narrated
by Muslim, al-Salaam, 4056) 

when a person persists in reciting the adhkaar (dhikr) for morning
and evening, and the adhkaar for going to sleep, and others, this
will have a great effect in protecting him from the evil eye, because it
will be like a stronghold for him, by Allaah’s Leave. 
So everyone should strive to recite these adhkaar. One of the best
treatments is the use of ruqyah, which the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) permitted for protection from
the evil eye and he instructed people to use it. 

was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said:
“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) commanded me, or he commanded (the people) to use ruqyah to deal with
the evil eye.”

(narrated by
al-Bukhaari, al-Tibb, 5297) 

And it was
narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: “The
man who cast the evil eye would be commanded to do wudoo’, and then the
man who was affected would wash himself with (the water).”

(Narrated by Abu
Dawood, al-Tibb, 3382. Al-Albaani said, in Saheeh Sunan
Abi Dawood, its isnaad is saheeh. No. 3282) 

These are some of the
du’aa’s and treatments which offer protection – by Allaah’s leave
– from the evil eye and from destructive envy (hasad). We ask
Allaah to protect us from that. And Allaah knows best. 

See Zaad al-Ma’aad
by Ibn al-Qayyim, 4/162.
