Majah, in which it is stated that 'Amir bin Rabi'ah passed by Sahl bin Hunaif whilc hc was washing and hc sajd: "I have not seen sudl white skin as yours even on a woman." No suoi~cr

Can the evil eye afflict a person? How is it treated? Does being o-n o-ne's guard against it contradict putting o-ne's trust in
He replied:
Our opinion concerning the evil eye is that it is real and is proven both by Islamic teachings and by real life experiences. Allaah
says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes (through hatred)” [al-Qalam 68:51]
Ibn ‘Abbaas and others said, commenting o-n this verse: this means, they put the evil eye o-n you with their glances. The
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“The evil eye is real and if anything were to overtake the divine decree, it would be the evil eye. When you are asked to take a
bath (to provide a cure) from the influence of the evil eye, you should take a bath.” Narrated by Muslim. Al-Nasaa’i and Ibn
Maajah narrated that ‘Aamir ibn Rabee’ah passed by Sahl ibn Haneef when he was bathing… and he quoted the hadeeth.

Reality confirms that and it cannot be denied.
In the event that you are afflicted by the evil eye, you should use the treatments recommended in sharee’ah, which are:
1 – Reciting ruqyah. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,

“There is no ruqyah except in the case of the evil eye or fever.” [al-Tirmidhi, 2057; Abu Dawood, 3884.] (1 of 3)12/15/2008 4:20:23 PM :: Aqeedah & Manhaj of the Salaf-Us-Saalih



Asslaamu Alaykum

Jibreel used to do ruqyah for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and say, “Bismillaahi arqeeka min kulli

2 – Asking the person who has put the evil eye o-n another to wash, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)


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).”

commanded ‘Aamir ibn Rabee’ah to do in the hadeeth quoted above. Then the water should be poured over the o-ne who has been afflicted.

With regard to taking his waste, such as his urine and stools, there is no basis for doing so; the same applies to taking any of his belongings. Rather what is narrated is that which is mentioned above, washing his limbs and washing inside his garment, or likewise washing inside his headgear and garments. And Allaah knows best.


There is nothing wrong with taking precautions against the evil eye before it happens, and this does not contradict the idea of


tawakkul (putting o-ne's trust in Allaah). In fact this is tawakkul, because tawakkul means putting o-ne’s trust in Allaah whilst





also implementing the means that have been permitted or enjoined. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge for al-Hasan and al-Husayn and say: U’eedhukuma bi kalimaat Allaah al-taammati min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli ‘aynin laammah (I seek refuge for you both in the perfect words of Allaah, from every devil and every poisonous reptile, and from every evil eye).’” [Al-Tirmidhi, 2060; Abu Dawood, 4737.]




And he would say,


“Thus Ibraaheem used to seek refuge with Allaah for Ishaaq and Ismaa’eel, peace be upon them both.” [Narrated by al-


Bukhaari, 3371.]
