Cure for Evil Eye


In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


The evil eye is where an individual targets a person to be hurt by an evil eye.  Victims of the evil eye become ill and become deficient in some way.

Imam Ibn Qayim (RA) has written in his book Zaadul Maad, “It is the arrows that are taken out from the soul of the envious individual and then fired upon the one who is being envied.  This individual maybe affected by this sometimes and manages to escape at other times.  If affected by this, there will be no protection from its evil effect.  Sometimes these arrows return to the envier and the evil eye makes him suffer the same negative physical actions to the body and soul as he had originally intended.”

The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said ‘The one who knows in great detail his brothers affairs can harm him’.   (Muwata Imam Malik p.719)

You should protect yourself by offering the five daily prayers and performing good deeds. Also make a habit of reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Naas. Imam Malik (RA) narrates from Saaidah Aisha Radiallahu Anha that ‘’Whenever the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam suffered from an ailment, he would recite the Muwadhatain (Surah Falaq and Surah Naas), blow over his hands and then wipe his whole body with those hands.  When this pain became severe on his deathbed, I would recite the Muwadhatain, blow over his hands, and then he wipes them over himself because my hands could not be a fitting substitute for his blessed hands.’’

You can also use supplicated oil by massaging the body twice everyday where pain is experienced.  You can also drink supplicated water to protect yourself from the evil eye.

Only Allah Knows Best
