In Islam is taweez haram or halal?


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




We are taught throughout the Quran and Sunnah to seek the protection of Allah through His words, supplications, and all permissible means within the bounds of Shariah. Therefore Using a taweez’ is permitted provided a few conditions are followed.


  • The ta’weez is in a language that can be understood, preferably Arabic, especially if when inserting Quran and Islamic Duas.
  • The ta’weez used is derived from the Quran and Sunnah.
  • The holder of the ta’weez understands that Allah’s benefit and harm come solely from Allah and the ta’weez can only be of effect by the will of Allah.




أجمع العلماء على جواز الرقي عند اجتماع ثلاثة شروط أن يكون بكلام الله تعالى أو بأسمائه وصفاته وباللسان العربي أو بما يعرف معناه من غيره وأن يعتقد أن الرقية لا تؤثر بذاتها بل بذات الله تعالى. (فتح الباري شرح صحيح البخاري , دار الفكر , بيروت , ج 10,ص195)
